Paper Toss is an extremely simple but still fairly addictive game that simulates the time-honored office pastime of tossing crumpled pieces of paper into a trash can. In the game's interface, you hold your iPhone or iPod Touch vertically as you flick a wad of paper toward the target can, attempting to account for a blowing fan when you calculate your trajectory. The fan changes sides and speed for each shot, and Paper Toss features three levels of difficulty, with the trash can at varying distances.
Where this game really shines, though, is in its production values: the crisp visuals, believable physics, realistic sound effects, and ambient office noise (including annoyed co-workers who complain about your off-target shots) combine to make this the premier office paper-tossing simulator. We would like to see more improvements (like different environments, and the ability to control the force of shots and not just the direction), but overall this is a fun, free, download-worthy game.
Have you ever been bored at work, crumpled up a piece of paper and counted how many times you can make it in a small trash can? Has your boss ever gone out for a quick bite while you and your coworkers see how far you can move the trash can away and still make the paper shot? Have you ever brought in electric fans to make the shot even harder.
This game is oddly satisfying much like tossing a real ball of crumpled paper into a metal trash basket. So realistic, you will think you are stuck in an office killing time.
