App Creation #37 – Game Inspiration – Paper Toss 2


Screwing up a piece of paper is always the first part of a more invigorating challenge. It is rare for an office worker to then travel to the bin and carefully place it inside – in fact the more likely outcome is the inevitable lining up of the shot and throwing that paper ball into it’s waste bin target.

A short thrill rewards those skilful enough to succeed in this rubbish dunking exercise and extreme disappointment to those who miss in front of all their colleagues.

It’s Bin Fun

You can replicate this common office situation all from the comfort of your phone thanks to the wonderfully addictive Paper Toss.

Placed at your beck and call is an already prepared screwed up piece of paper, tempting you to toss the crumpled mess towards the point scoring bin.

If this wasn’t difficult enough, those devious developers have also added an additional problem. Placed one side or the other of your paper throwing trajectory is a standard office fan. With varying degrees of wind whooshing momentum, this will as you would expect push your well aimed throw off target unless you were paying attention and adjusted your path accordingly.

So there is no need to risk the wrath of the management, instead play in this virtual world of offices and other assorted paper tossing locations.
