Paper Toss iOS icon
|Release||June 6, 2009|
Paper Toss is a casual mobile game developed originally for the operating system iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) by Backflip Studios, which has since been ported to Android. It uses multi-touch input, and is available in two versions: free ad-supported and paid ad-free. It has been downloaded over 50 million times
Paper Toss is set in an office. The player's objective is to flick a piece of paper into a bin. To make the game more challenging, there is a fan running in the space, thus the wind direction and speed are displayed, as they need to be accounted for when flicking the piece of paper. Players are scored on how many times they manage to toss the paper into the bin before missing. There are online leaderboards and 8 different levels: 3 office levels with small, medium and large distances away from the bin, an airport level to promote the sequel to Paper Toss, and Paper Toss: World Tour, a dimly lit basement level, and a restroom level, which are all in the office. There is also a pub level and a street level, both of which occur away from the office.
Paper Toss 2.0
Like its predecessor, Paper Toss 2.0 that released on December 8, 2011, follows the same objective. The newer version includes new locations, diverse objects to toss and special features. The new locations that appear in this game include a warehouse, the Boss' Office where a sleepy boss lies, and an airport terminal. The number items apart from the paper ball, that are available have also increased with the option of using various food items and household objects and grenades as well. The game also presents special new graphic features that were missing in the first version such as colleagues who can be hit with the paper balls or drawers, fish tanks and boxes that break open. Another speciality is the Intern level, where an intern carries the dustbin with himself as he slides across the office on his chair. Here, the player has to not only adjust the angle of the throw with the air current, but also time the intern's movement correctly to get the ball in. The game also features an achievement list which can be synced with Game Center.
