The human capacity for making a game out of whatever's at hand certainly extends to the office, more often than not resulting in the infamous Paper Toss Challenge. How many times consecutively can you sink a wadded up sheet of paper into the trash can? What if we move it across the room, and obstruct the flight path with a fan? Sure, it's wasting time, but it's also physics in action.
The Paper Toss app brings the experience of mindless office fun to the palm of your hand. There are various environments in which you can play, but it essentially boils down to flicking digital paper into a can over and over again. The ever-present fan changes direction and intensity, meaning you'll have to adjust your flicks accordingly. Once you get the hang of what numbers correspond to what angle of flick, it's fairly easy to rack up many consecutive baskets, which are recorded on your own personal high score board.
The free version of this app comes with plenty of ads, but they don't significantly obstruct gameplay.
Whether you're playing it in real life or through the app, Paper Toss is a simple, reliable game. Whether or not it has much replay value all depends on you - just how fun is it to throw paper into the bin, anyway?Developer's original description available here
