Par 72 Golf Lite

Developer:Reset Game

Price: Free

Golf games have been a computer game standby for years, and I passed many a long subway ride playing this one, trying to master the different holes. In the free version you only get three, the first hole of three different courses, but the pay version offers all three courses in full. The graphics are basic but decent, and so is the gameplay. You can choose from a range of irons and woods, and the game will recommend the best one for your distance from the hole. Sand traps don’t seem to have much impact, nor does the wind, although it is indicated. Aim is simple, and the power meter is fairly basic: press to start, the graph rises, press to stop. Wait too long and your swing goes wild. Very simple, but it’s free and distracting.
