Well, the title couldn't be any more accurate. In FlingSmash, you fling your hero into things and he smashes them. But it's all incredibly fun to do. The simplicity of the controls makes this a pick-up-and-play game for anyone. But as the game progresses and levels get more and more challenging, you'll realize that you need to practice and build up your flinging skills in order to excel. Zip makes for a cute and likable hero, and the colorful cartoony environments are very enjoyable to bounce through. FlingSmash feels a lot like old-school Nintendo games of yore -- and in that way, does have a way of inducing deja vu (which you may or may not think of as a good thing) -- but the way you play feels very fresh and new.
