What parents need to know

Ease of play

The courses start off simple and become very difficult. There are two modes of control (touch or tilt), and most players are likely to find one or the other a more natural fit for themselves.

This is an official Frisbee game, licensed by the Wham-O company. Also, this is a game with optional in-app purchases of extra "star coins," which cost real money. You use the star coins to purchase new in-game Frisbee discs.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Frisbee Forever features in-app purchases, as players can spend real money to buy extra "star coins." However, the star coins are only used to earn new Frisbee discs or other decorative elements for the game. You can earn stars coins each time you play a round, though, so if you're patient enough to let them accumulate, you should be able to get any of the special items you want without spending any real money.

QUALITY
 

FOREVER FRISBEE may have a prominent marketing aspect, as it highlights an officially licensed toy, but it's much more than that. It's a really fun, exciting, and well-made flying game. Using either touch or tilt controls, you steer a soaring Frisbee through a series of floating hoops in vibrant, colorful environments. And there are over a hundred courses to keep the action fresh and interesting. Collecting stars along the way will earn you a higher score and more "star coins" that you can use to buy new, interestingly decorated Frisbee discs. The option exists to buy more "star coins" with real money, but unlike many "velvet rope" games (games that start off free, but entice you to spend money once you start playing), there's never any real need to do so. You'll earn plenty of coins just by playing (even by replaying the same easy levels if you want), which is a nice change of pace.
