- Single game play
- Realistic approach
- Physics based
A simple scenario with greatest difficulty I have seen in a single game. Paper toss is a great example of how such 1 level simple graphic, having no story line can be so interesting to play. Obviously, as you can judge from the name, you just need to throw a paper bowl into the basket placed in front of you. But believe me it’s not that simple as it sounds.
There is a table fan beside the paper bowl which will blow air at a specific speed and speed will change with the change in your score. By keeping in view the wind speed, you have to make an estimate of the angel at which you want to throw the paper bowl so it can land into the basket. If there isn’t any wind blowing you must throw it in an erected line, while in case of blowing air throw the paper in a curve towards the direction of fan.
An amazing simple arcade game you can have for free. But keep in mind that it is highly addictive, therefore be aware while playing it.
