Bored At The Office? Paper Toss on The iPhone
June 16, 2009 by Ryan Ray
It’s only a matter of hours before the iPhone 3.0 software is released. Full of great features like MMS, copy and paste, etc.. so what are we going to do to pass the time? Well being iPhone nuts, we are going to pass the time by playing games on our iPhones until 3.0 is available. By the way, I’ve got a copy of the 3.0 software and will be reviewing it so when it’s officially out tomorrow you guys will know all the tricks and new feaures, inside and out. It’s going to be a great week to be an iPhone owner, especially if it’s your first iPhone.
This game has been great to play and I’m glad I found it sitting at the top of the app store. I say that because it belongs there and should be downloaded by everyone. The game is called Paper Toss, and like the name says you toss (actually it’s more like flick, not toss on the iPhone) paper into a trash can at 3 different distances away. Closest is obviously easiest, medium puts the can in the middle, and the hardest level puts the trash can as far away as it can go. The setting of Paper Toss is in an office, with the developers saying that this is often a game played by many in an office setting. Now I can’t say that’s true as I’ve never worked in an office, but I have played this game in the classroom. Sometimes it was played with a paper ball, other times with a paper airplane.
The whole point of the game like I said is simple. Flick a paper ball off of the desk and into the trash can. Once you’ve got the hang of that, try and see how many times in a row you can do that. My personal best is on Medium at 17 times in a row. You might be thinking right now, well that sounds easy. Flick it the same every time and your score could be endless, right? Actually you are wrong. The part of the game that makes this very interesting is the fan. At each attempt to make the paper ball in the trash you have a fan blowing from either left or right, and with that the fan has different strengths as you can see below. Since it’s only at 0.19 in the shot below you barely have to aim to the right, but if you come across the strength at 5 or above (it doesn’t go to six) then you almost have to flick the ball behind the fan.
The game is best explained through video, so that’s exactly what I’ve done. In short this game is FREE, fun and fantastic, I’d highly recommend it to you as one of those games you keep around on a special spot on your home screen. At least I’m keeping it there for awhile, or until the next best thing comes a long and is worthy of taking it’s spot. Show the game to your friends and see how many times you or your friends can make it. Who will set the record, I’m at 17 so far on Medium anyone beat that yet? Haha, thanks for reading and enjoy
