Frisbee Forever 2 is a nice mashup of Frisbee quidditch and mini-golf. Your objective is to flick your Frisbee to collect stars as you guide your Frisbee through hoops or tunnels or other obstacles along the way.
You can choose to play Frisbee Forever 2 for iPhone and iPad by either pressing on the edges of the screen or by tilting your iOS device. I started with the tilt and then switched to the screen control. I’m not sure which I liked better, but tilting seems like such an instinctive way to play the game, even when I was using the screen controls I was tilting as well.
Each level begins with you flicking your Frisbee as far and as straight as you can. Like Sonic the Hedgehog, you follow the path of stars and pipes and slides and hoops and other obstacles that are on the designated path. But like any Frisbee throw, it eventually runs out of steam and falls back to the ground.
One of the parts of the game I liked the best was a clear list of objectives that needed to be completed. Whether you succeeded or failed, you were shown a screen stating that you needed to fly through more rings, collect more starts, or just fly further. The objectives changed frequently and it really helped to focus your efforts.
The sound effects were cool, but the background music was annoying. It was some sort of acoustical guitar that didn’t really fit a particular style. It was perky enough, but somehow it just didn’t fit the game for me. The graphics were bright and crisp and the in-game baubles were big and clear that they were you’re target.
This is an easy game to understand, just flick the disk and collect the obstacles. But it was challenging to accomplish the various objectives and required some serious concentration. Both the screen and tilt controls will take some practice to master. Frisbee Forever 2, though, is a solid game that will provide lots of reasons to keep coming back for more.[rating: 5/5]
