Great work on the presentation. Another wonderful example how proper games, even mini, should be done.

Really interesting and fun concept. Would be much more fun if it had preset scores to beat. Like this, I'm left to beat myself. Or a friend.

Lachie looks around.

Right.

Anyway, I didn't get the scoring fully. My final score is 143 and +98. What each number means?

BTW, this made me thing about a game featuring multiple less known solitaire games in one package....hrm...any takers?

Thanks.

Each number is the score for the hole. All the scores add up for the final score. Par is considered 45 (total), so that is the score you are trying to beat. +98 means that you went 98 over par. With a game like this, you really can't set different targets for each hole as you have a constant set of cards each time. The 45 does give you an overall target to try for though.

Great Work!! Love the layout, graphics, music and the sfx where pleasing. A very simple game in which you added onto very well, that isn't as simple as most people think. Again great job on this.
