The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

On the surface, the game is easy to play -- simply pick an object to toss and flick it toward the "office jerk." But the strategy comes in with the direction and strength of the wind caused by the fan. Still, the game is quite simple.


The game has you throw items at an office employee who is sitting at his desk. This ranges from small items like paper and pencils, to medium-sized objects like staplers and pies, to exploding TNT. The "jerk" has various animated reactions to whatever is tossed at him, including his face blown up in a cartoon way (think black gun powder like a Bugs Bunny cartoon).


The name of the game is Office Jerk, which might offend some right off the bat, but there is no other controversial language.


Banner ads appear at the top of the screen, where gamers will also see ads telling them they can pay for an ad-free version or purchase extra items to toss at the hapless employee.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Office Jerk is a lighthearted -- but violent -- game that aims to annoy, antagonize, and assault an office worker -- just because he's a "know-it-all overachiever" as it says in the press materials. This doesn't send a good message to kids, of course, as devoted and hardworking people should be rewarded and not berated or bullied. However, this game was meant to be a fun digital diversion for those who can get the humor but understand that it's for entertainment purposes only and not something to emulate. You can throw erasers, eggs, pies, and even dynamite at the worker and cause some damage to his desk environment, too.

Is it any good?

There's one in every office: that know-it-all overachiever who comes in early, stays late, and kisses up to the boss. OFFICE JERK lets you exact some revenge by harassing "that guy" on your iOS device. Your goal? Throw as many office supplies at the "office jerk" as you can without missing. Similar in concept to the popular Paper Toss games, you'll need to see which side of the office the fan is blowing –- and at what velocity -- and you'll adjust your flicks so that your "weapons" land on the bespectacled employee. You'll see your high score on the screen – such as 23 successive throws. Office Jerk is free to play, but an in-app purchase gives you the "ACME Pack" ($1.99) with funnier weapons (including the TNT), plus the "Remove Ads Pack" costs $.99 cents to rid the game of banner ads. While not deep, the sheer silliness of this game should serve as a fun time-waster for older kids who understand that such taunting is not OK in real life.
