Fling! lets kids (and adults) get in touch with their competitive side by flinging or “shoving” colored furballs into each other across a green lawn.
There are user-friendly levels: easy, medium and hard. You can even play under the Arcade setting (if you want time pressure), Free Play (no pressure) or Challenge mode (solve a certain number of puzzles within the time allotment).
Why we like it:
In a chess-like fashion the puzzles make you think about future moves and their outcomes before you make them. So that the player doesn’t go on tilt too much and quit before they’ve reached their full potential – Fling offers an “undo” button and a number of “hints” with each game.
If you are in Challenge mode – you’ll get a scorecard giving you your recent stats. In arcade mode it shows you how many points you score after completing each game.
