Frisbee Forever: iPhone Game Review

Playing with a Frisbee is something that all of us have done at some point of time in our life. It’s a fun game, and very much fascinated me when I was a really small kid. Now that I’ve grown, it’s difficult to find time to play with a Frisbee or well anything else of that sort. This is where Frisbee Forever, an iPhone Game comes to the rescue.

Frisbee Forever for iPhone, is a really fun and challenging game for all those Frisbee lovers out there and according to me it’s actually more fun than a game of real Frisbee. The game is real simple to play and doesn’t require any real skills for you to master it. Frisbee Forever uses the accelerometers to control the movement of the frisbee when in the air. The game has many levels and different scenarios such as a park, a mountain, waterfall and few more. The game requires you to throw the Frisbee and then navigate it throw loops and around obstacles to reach the finish line, and trust me that isn’t as easy as it sounds.

Get ready for blast-off. Fly at breathtaking speed across more than 100 crazy tracks. Twist and turn in the California Theme Park, climb the majestic mountains in the Wild West or send the waves blazing in the Pirate filled Caribbean oceans. There’s a level for everyone! Play with cool classic Wham-O® Frisbees® or brand new discs only available in Frisbee® Forever. Collect more than 100 Frisbees®, with plenty of trophies and secret bonuses to achieve.

The game starts off with a very easy level, but as you keep moving up, the levels get harder and trickier. It’s not really easy to control the Frisbee, as you have to maintain the speed and angle as well, if you don’t, the Frisbee crashes and Game Over!! It’s all in how you tilt your iOS device, tilt too much and you’re off course, tilt too less and you go hit the loop instead of passing through it. Throughout the games you’ll need to collect Stars so that you can move on to the next levels and also buy yourself a brand new Frisbee.

That’s pretty much how the game is, seen in the above screenshots, fun and tricky as you make your way to the top and become a Frisbee Forever master. It’s available for free in the App Store, but is a little heavy weighing in at about 60MB. Free up some space on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad and awaken the little kid inside you.

Tiny Wings for Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad: Game Review

When it comes to gaming on the iPhone, iPod Touch or the iPad, people are very selective. Some like puzzle games, some word games, some action and so on, but not all of them stay on your device for long. One either gets bored of it or completes the game and moves on to something else. There are certain games, that in spite of being small, are really very addictive and seldom get you bored. Today, I’ll be reviewing one such game, which I’m sure most of you will soon get addicted to. It’s titled as Tiny Wings, is developed by Andreas Illiger and is one of the most downloaded and featured games on iTunes.

Tiny Wings is based on a little bird with rather small wings that is striving to fly as high as it can with some help from you. It’s a real simple game, but is very challenging and fun to play when you are bored or just need a break. There isn’t much to do either, as all you have to do is make the little bird fly across mountains and islands using gravity and other items provided in game. When you touch the screen, the bird closes it’s wings and when you let go it starts flapping.

There is a catch however, and that is what makes this game very challenging and addictive. There are 11 islands to cross, but you’ll have to do it before nightfall, this is quite difficult because once you reach island 6 the night starts approaching very quickly; one mistake and your tiny winged bird will nest for the night and it starts all over again. The starting over can at times be a little annoying, but the game sounds tend to get you back in the mood for some more Tiny Wings action. Below are few screenshots that you might want to check out before downloading this game:

Tiny Wings Gameplay

You have always dreamed of flying – but your wings are tiny. Luckily the world is full of beautiful hills. Use the hills as jumps – slide down, flap your wings and fly! At least for a moment – until this annoying gravity brings you back down to earth. But the next hill is waiting for you already. Watch out for the night and fly as fast as you can. Otherwise flying will only be a dream once again.

Overall, the games does succeed in getting you addicted to the game and also saves you from boredom. Tiny Wings is a really nice arcade game for people who like challenges and I bet not many of you can reach the 11th island, heck it’s very difficult to reach even the 6th island. Gameplay is fairly easy, as all you’ll ever have to do is make the bird fly. It however requires proper timing and concentration, as once you lose speed and height, the game is as good as over. To make the bird fly higher you’ll require to get more speed when coming down a mountain, and release once at the tip. Get good at doing that and you might even make it to the 11th island.

Tiny Wings for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad only costs $0.99 and is worth the money. You can download this game from the Apple App Store, it requires iOS 4.1 and above. After Angry Birds this is one of the best bird games to be ever made. Go grab it now.
