After much anticipation, Tiger Woods’ latest outing has hit the App Store. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 is a pretty involved and intense golf experience on your iPhone and iPad, packing multiple game modes and the ability to face off against your Facebook friends. All that goodness takes it to the top of our Fresh Games list today, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check out our other entries; they’re all detailed below.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 (iPhone, iPad) $6.99

The latest edition of the biggest golf series in video games hit the App Store last night, with all new features to let you take on Tiger Woods in the sport’s biggest tournaments. Using touchscreen controls that let you choose the power of your swing, the club you’re using, and even the spin of your ball, you can fire off shots as Woods or several other famous PGA golfers, or one you create yourself.

PGA Tour 12 packs four different game modes, including a 20-mini-game mode called the Tiger Challenge. You can also play one-on-one games against Facebook friends in “Closest to the Pin” challenges and see where you rank against your friends on the game’s leaderboards.

Chop Chop Kicker (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

It’s dinosaur-punting time for you and your caveman pals in Chop Chop Kicker. In each level, you kick a dinosaur down a 2D course and draw its path with a magic marker in order to pick up crystals and maximize distance to pull down a high score. The further your dinosaur goes, the better your score and the more coins you can collect to unlock additional levels.

Chop Chop Kicker supports both OpenFeint and Game Center, providing it with worldwide leaderboards and achievements. It’s universal, so it supports both iPhone and iPad, and Chop Chop Kicker features Retina display support as well as cartoony graphics to augment its simple gameplay.

Colorflys (iPad) $1.99

Your job is to wrangle butterflies of like color in Colorflys, with only your finger and a keen grasp of hand-eye coordination. When you see butterflies all of a single color, you need to quickly trap them by drawing a line around them with your finger — but you have to be careful, because the line can’t be broken by any objects or other butterflies in order to work.

Colorflys features 60 different levels of butterfly capture challenges, complete with groups of differing colors and other bugs, like bees, that can thwart your capture plans. It packs its own leaderboards and achievements, allowing you to see how your scores progress in the game, and you can share your successes with friends on Facebook and Twitter.
