Flying disc fun

Frisbee Forever is a lot of fun both for the cartoonlike graphics and themed worlds, and for the smooth control system that makes it satisfying to complete levels.

Frisbee Forever is the fully licensed flying disc app that lets you guide a Frisbee disc through colorful obstacle courses. Against a cartoonlike 3D backdrop, you start by flicking your Frisbee onscreen, then guiding the disc through rings and around obstacles, all the while gathering stars as you go. You have the option to use onscreen control arrows, but I found the tilt controls to be much more fun. If you gather all the stars and make it through all the gates to the finish line, you'll be awarded a gold medal along with experience points and Star Coins. As you level up, you'll be able to win new Frisbee designs in bonus levels, or you can use your Star Coins to buy new designs in the in-app store.

Frisbee Forever is a lot of fun both for the cartoonlike graphics and themed worlds, and for the smooth control system that makes it satisfying to complete levels. Something about hitting the turns perfectly and gathering all available stars has its own draw--we found ourselves trying later levels again and again to try to get a perfect score. The themed worlds give your surroundings plenty of variation, and all the in-game 3D models are well detailed, letting you know that the developers made sure there was plenty to look at--even if you're locked in concentration on the obstacles at hand. All told, there are nine themed areas with 10 courses each and one bonus world with 10 courses you'll unlock as you play.

If you're not the patient type, you can buy Star Coins via the in-app store to get fancy Frisbee designs immediately, but it's not very hard to earn coins by playing to unlock the designs you want.

Overall, Frisbee Forever is a fun and quirky flying game with great-looking graphics, a solid control system, and plenty of courses to master, giving it a lot of replay value. Anyone who likes arcade flying games should check out this app.
