This is a very simple game where you throw a frisby from a cliff and it bounces along the water. Try to get it as far as possible!

The game requires quick reflexes and you must press SPACEBAR when it will perform the optimal effect.

STAGE 1: Press SPACEBAR when the blue bar is at its biggest as it will give you more air time.
STAGE 2: Press SPACEBAR every time the frisby hits the water. Timing is important and you must hit it quickly to make it bounce the furthest.

My records 1264, what's yours?

This was pretty fun, to an extent.
Its very short, and overly simple.
My best was 182

Yes, it is.

I can't get much better than 600 but I hate it I think.

So bad it's good?

I just got over 1100 but because of a glitch where you can send the stone flying up in the air again

Although I agree with others who say there's not much to this app, it's still enjoyable and is an excellent casual, pick-up game to waste a little time. Since it's easy to start over again, I find myself playing it over and over again quite easily. Trying to make a high score keeps you playing. Image



It reminds me of the frisbee minigame in the old sports title "California Games" by Epyx long, long ago, on the COmmodore 64. Next time, make sure you have some sort of background: coulds, birds, waves on the sea, etc. to break up the monotony. You could also add in targets that the player can hit for extra points...maybe a floating harbor buoy?

EDIT: and I've also encountered the "frisbee shooting up into the air" at the last minute before it drops off the bottom of the screen. If you're frantically mashing the spacebar, it'll happen on rare occasions.

I agree with s-m-r . There is not much to it but it keeps the attention for a few minutes which i suspect is the aim of the game. Some birds or people would be nice.

Also I found the delay between pressing the space bar once and the guy throwing the frisbee a little long - can it not be made instant?

All in all, its alright and keeps your attention for a few turns
