I've had this game since it first came out, and I'm hooked. Don't get as much work done as I used to but that's ok, because I love being out on the courses in the game. And the tournaments are challenging and can be frustrating. Also, I've found Nuclear Nova (Jake) to be responsive to problems. The play is fun and rewards good course management, and the graphics are wonderful. Now if they could just program in a couple extra hours in my day, I'd be in good shape. :-)
Won't Start Up.
I just purchased the "$2.99 deal". The problem is it won't start and tells me it won't run on this Mac. I'm running v.10.6.8 on an iMac and according to the stated system requirements, this should be fine. Also after performing the most recent update for the Lite version it no longer works either. As it is I would rate it lower if possible. If I can get it to work (Hey Developers!) I'll adjust my rating accordingly.
There's solution on the Nova Golf Support site as far as I can tell.
An edit: Reading further in the app description there is a notice that this will only run on 10.7. The system requirements on the main App Store page are obviously wrong. Click "...more" for the full story.
I enjoy this golf game to just pass some time. The challenges are fun with the different courses and wind conditions.
