FlingSmash Review

VideoGamer.com
31 January 2011
  • Excerpt: FlingSmash doesn't so much sound like a game, but a child's toy designed to cause havoc around the house. You can imagine it being sold alongside Nerf guns as a way to inflict mild pain on your siblings, and in many ways that would be more entertaining than this Wii-exclusive, MotionPlus-enabled,...

FlingSmash

Family Friendly Gaming
22 December 2010
  • Excerpt: FlingSmash is a side scrolling action adventure platformer that has one unique key feature. That unique key feature is your hero is a ball like creature that is almost always in motion. I used a Wii Motion Plus controller (editor: which came in the purchased package) to bat him around the screen.

  • Summary: A solid game that definitely has an audience. Might lack replay value, could be too short or there are some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun. How we score: The Destructoid Reviews Guide

Game Revolution
7 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Flung... and smashed... The backstory of FlingSmash is muddled... something about an evil presence descending on a peaceful island. The bad guys start wreaking havoc and the island king is forced to unlock an ancient chest where our hero sleeps.
  • Pros: Low cost, Wii Potion Plus controller, Predictable boss battles, Boring mini-games, Repetitive controls

  • Conclusion: FlingSmash is an interesting title that is at once uninspired yet unpredictable. Harking back to the gimmick-heavy games that clogged the Wii’s shelves during the console’s tentative steps, it’s a title that fulfils its mission statement but does little to justify its pricing as a full release (Wii...

FlingSmash Review

Eurogamer
18 November 2010
  • Conclusion: According to the PR blurb, FlingSmash apparently "combines the hands-on fun of tennis with the non-stop action of pinball", but it's more like the arm-knack of the former coupled with the infuriating randomness of the latter.

Official Nintendo Magazine
18 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Fling. Smash. Like Ronseal Five Year Woodstain, the clue is right there in the name. In FlingSmash you use the Wii MotionPlus controller to "fling" Zip, a sort of Pacman meets the ball from Breakout, so that he "smashes" blocks. You do the flinging. He does the smashing.

FlingSmash Review

Itchy Thumbs
17 November 2010
  • Conclusion: FlingSmash is simply too good to be considered just another piece of shovelware. While all of it’s basic elements are fairly simple, they combine to create a thoroughly addictive and entertaining Wii experience.
