Check out, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

Let's Golf was originally release for the iPhone by Gameloft and hailed as one of the better golf games in the app store. Now it has been released for the iPad and won't disappoint. The game still features the exact same gameplay found in the original but obviously benefits from the much larger screen size and faster processor.

Users select the mode, their character, and get right into the gameplay. The controls are still the exact same as the old version. The game uses the same tap and tap again solution for selecting power and then tap a third time for accuracy. This system worked nice for the iPhone but it would have been nice to have some updated controls which utilize the iPad large screen. Selecting clubs has now been moved into an onscreen menu as opposed to the scrolling method found on the iPhone.

Aside from that not much has changed. You still can unlock new items and play against the challenging computer players but there isn't anything new to get excited about. If you liked this game on the iPhone, you'll like it on the iPad. You'll be paying more than double the price for it, but for some of you it may be worth it.
