FlingSmash on Wii

FlingSmash Screen Shots

FlingSmash is a Platforming game available on the Wii. It can be played in Competitive Sharedscreen modes.

FlingSmash is a Platforming game. Platform games task you with getting from point A to point B. The world you journey through is usually based on different levels, and populated with enemies, switches and lifts to be negotiated. As you work through each level you pick up various collectables that accrue score, special abilities and access to hidden areas.

FlingSmash can be played in a Competitive mode. Competitive Multiplayer games provide experiences where players compete against each other and the computer. Obviously lending itself to sports and team games, these competitive engagements have also dominated the shooting and fighting genres because of the direct combat and expertise involved in each. Although these games were originally played in a split screen style, more recently they are played online via services such as PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and the Nintendo Wireless Connection.

FlingSmash can be played in a Sharedscreen mode. Shared Screen Multiplayer games create a multiplayer experience where players all share the same screen space. Rather than splitting the screen into portions for each player the game scales to fit each player in view even when they are a long way apart. Football and fighting games often take this approach as the shared view doesn't impede the players ability to take part in the action.


Fling Smash

FlingSmash creates an all age platform game with Pinball and Tennis sensibilities.

In FlingSmash you control the ball by apply whipped force through a MotionPlus enabled Wii-mote. The result is a real sensation of flinging your character around the various levels.

Domestic Gamer review Tue, 23 Nov 2010

FlingSmash may confound hardcore gamers, but for my family it worked great. Simple controls, a free Wii-mote, and bright visuals were more than enough to overcome the fiddly aiming and annoying bosses.

Although I like quite a few Wii game, my husband maintains that I'm not a real gamer because most of these are exercise or educational titles. I guess it is true that I usually have an ulterior motive for setting the Wii up, nothing wrong in that though.
