The Good Super Stickman Golf 2 gives you new levels and new obstacles to the addictive arcade golf game without straying to far from the original formula.

The Bad In app purchase seems unnecessary for this game, preying on the more impulsive players among us, when gaining levels is not particularly hard to do.

The Bottom Line If you liked the first Stickman golf game and want new levels, new obstacles, and new power-ups, Super Stickman Golf 2 is a worthy sequel.

Don't Miss

Super Stickman Golf 2 (99 cents) is a 2D golf game that is definitely a worthy sequel to the original with new levels, new special course elements, and much more. It's really easy to pick up and play, with tons of fantastical themed courses, interesting power-ups, and excellent physics-based gameplay. Though the game has a huge amount of arcadelike features, the goal is always the same: try to get the ball in the hole in as few shots as possible. The challenge is that it can be much harder than it looks.

Rather than your standard 3D layout seen in many golf games, the Super Stickman Golf games use a 2D platformer experience. The courses often have multiple levels you'll need to reach and obstacles you'll need to avoid to finally get on the green.

The interface consists of arrows on the left to adjust the arc of your shot, a button in the middle for bringing in bonus items (more on that later), and a "Go!" button you'll need to hit twice for each shot (one to start the swing, and a second time to adjust shot power.
