Fling Theory is a positive physics-based puzzler

Published by at

Fling Theory is an exclusive physics-based puzzle from indie developer Coding Jar Studios for Windows Phone 8. Described as "Angry Birds Space where you have to actually think", the game sees you solve physics based puzzles by manipulating atoms and destroying obstacles. This is done by "firing" an electron at various objects and taking advantage of various effects (e.g. repulsion, attraction, reactions) to move through a level.

The game is one of the first Windows Phone 8 titles to be powered by the Unity gaming engine and was ported from the Windows 8 version "in a matter of days" according to developer Jodon Karlik and is one of a number of indie titles being showcased by Microsoft at the annual Game Developers Conference in San Fransisco.

Fling Theory is a brilliantly inventive title, put together with great attention to detail, with a core game concept that's both addictive and fun. The game is free to download and comes with 23 levels, but there are in-game purchases for turning off ads ($0.79) and unlocking extra levels ($0.79). Currently there's a special, limited time, offer combing both of these extras for $0.79.

Cosing Jar Studios is a two-man, Vancouver based, gaming studio startup, which was formed after the collpase of Disney's Propoganda Games studio by industry vetran Jodon Karlik. Fling Tehory on Windows Phone was sponsored by AppCampus, a joint Nokia and Microsoft initiative aimed at bringing high quality games and apps to Windows Phone and other Nokia platforms.
