Game Review - Fling Smash

About the Game
The game FlingSmash™ combines the hands-on fun of tennis with the nonstop action and instant gratification of pinball. When tropical Suthon Island is invaded by the evil Omminus, the ball-shaped hero, Zip, is summoned to save the day. Using a Wii Remote™ Plus controller, which comes bundled with the game, you’ll fling Zip at targets to smash your way across eight colorful worlds. Swing the Wii Remote Plus controller like a racket and watch Zip bounce around like a pinball to smash through oncoming barriers and enemies in this action sidescroller.


  • Use the included Wii Remote Plus controller to precisely fling and smash your way through enemies and past barriers with a fun combination of racket motions and pinball game play. The game can also be played using an original Wii Remote controller with a Wii MotionPlus™ accessory (sold separately).
  • Hit Zip and watch as he bounces around like a pinball, smashing everything in his path.
  • A second player can join the action using an additional Wii Remote Plus or Wii Remote / Wii MotionPlus combo (sold separately) to control Zip’s friend, Pip.
  • During the game, Zip and Pip travel through eight fast-action side-scrolling worlds, each culminating in a boss battle. Each level offers a unique challenge as Zip might be shrunk down, fattened up or turned into a heavy steel ball. Other levels turn the action on its head to scroll vertically instead of horizontally.
  • The vividly colored worlds include sandy beaches, lush tropical treetops and even underwater grottos.
  • FlingSmash has eight unlockable mini-games and eight extra levels – all playable by one or two players.
My Take on the GameThis was a fun and exciting game. It was so much fun to be able to simply send the characters at things to destroy. What I came to find was that the game was not monotonous and instead each section in the game was different than another, but this difference was so much fun. I have now played the game for a few hours and have to say that I love it thus far. I also got my eldest daughter involved in the game and she wanted to keep playing even when we had to call it quits.

I also liked the two player mode which allowed me to play the game with my daughter. It was a lot of fun and we were able to go along flinging things left and right.

I also liked the Wii Remote Plus that came with the game. I have been needing a new remote control and this was a great addition to our system.

Overall though, this game was worth the money and the additional controller added was a great benefit as well. I would highly recommend this game as I know you will love the game as much as we did as well as the game is a great one to pull your family together.

If you would like this game for your family you can find it on Amazon!
