Someone Has Found the End of 'Desert Golfing' at Hole Number 64,465
Even though I spend most of my free time writing about a ridiculous variety of iOS games, I always tend to gravitate towards a relatively basic App Store classic on the everyday commute. This game is Desert Golfing [$1.99] - while not much more than an extremely minimalist putting simulator, in practice the game is an incredibly cathartic and relaxing experience. However, with the ever-present aggregate number of strokes, Desert Golfing can become a surprisingly competitive and social App Store essential - this versatility is a major factor in how the game has become a cult hit amongst many fans. The procedurally generated nature of the title, and whether there is actually an end point to the game, is also a big driving factor behind why people keep on playing, and back in March some extremely devoted fans thought they had found the conclusion to the courses on hole number 19,491. Earlier this week such speculation has been well and truly crushed, as Twitter user AldenLudwick has found the end of Desert Golfing in the form of an impassable ocean at the 64,465th hole, which developer Justin Smith has inferred is a true terminus for the game.
