Cubicle Golf [rating: 3/5]
There aren’t many games on the iPhone that I’ve played in real life, I’ve never thrown a range of birds at some pigs, I’ve never jumped up on numerous platforms to reach as high as I can but I have played cubicle golf! It was a long time ago and I would never do it now but I also never thought I’d see it on an iPhone.
For those of you that have never played it before it’s pretty simple, you decide on a course around your office and then using your legs to propel yourself to see how many times it takes you to reach the pre-agreed destination.
Well now all this fun has been brought to the iPhone with Cubicle Golf and the representation is pretty good. The graphics are great representation of your typical office environment and the commentary throughout the game is entertaining if a little repetitive.
Each of the 18 holes is based in a different office with different obstacles and your manager to try to avoid. There are 3, plus 1 bonus, “clubs” to choose from that take the form of different employees which represent three club types, a driver, iron and a putter which each adds to the power of the shot.
The controls are easy to pick up, simply pull an arrow with represents the power and direction of you shot form the employee and release. It will take a few attempts to get the sensitivity right but one you do you shouldn’t find things to difficult.
The 18 holes offer a decent variety of obstacles including the manager who you’ll find wandering around the office, hitting him will put you back to the start and suffer a penalty stroke.
The major downside to this game is the replay value which is limited thanks to the lack of multiple courses and online leader boards that would at least add some competitive edge to the game.
At $2 Cubicle Golf is a fun but relatively expensive option for your iPhone, for me it gained a little momentum due to the fact that I could relate it to real life, so perhaps you should try Cubicle Golf for real first!
