Finger Sling is the latest game to be published by Pocket Monkey Games, and it should be hitting the App Store pretty soon. Let me tell you, this game is quite addicting. There is a white ball in the center of the screen which you must protect. Your only weapon is an off-white ball attached to a pale disk via an elastic chord. Brown balls will roll towards the center of the screen from all directions, and you must deflect them before they hit the white ball in the center. To do this you flick the pale disk around the screen with your finger, and the off-white ball will follow when the chord constricts.
When you come into contact with the brown balls you will hopefully knock them off course until they finally roll off the screen. As you successfully knock the brown balls off screen you’ll earn points, and at the end of each level you can upgrade some facet of your offense or defense. You keep advancing through levels until the white ball is knocked free of a circle in the center of the playing area. The visuals have a clean, simple look to them, sound is minimal, and music consists of whatever you have in your iTunes collection. It seems pretty basic, but in the end it has “one more try” written all over it. This is definitely one to keep your eye on when it rolls into the App Store later this year.
