FlingSmash Review

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,...

  • 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.

  • 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.

12 October 2010
  • 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...

11 August 2010
  • Summary: FlingSmash introduces you to the varicolored world of Zip, a curious little critter who looks like a cross between a tropical fruit and a tennis ball. When his home, Suthon Island, is assaulted by the foreboding villain Omminus, it’s up to you to use the Wii Remote and Wii Motion Plus to smack,...

Game People
3 June 2011
  • Excerpt: 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...
