Fling a Thing iPhone released by the makers of Burn the Rope

September 29 , 2010 - London, Ontario – Big Blue Bubble Inc. is excited to announce the release of their latest game, F ling a Thing, for iPhone and iPod Touch.

Fling a Thing allows the player to stretch and fling cute little ‘Things’ into the air trying to collect bubbles and clear the screen. The player progresses through levels, climbs higher, and interacts with a lot of bizarre objects. But beware, there’s a limited amount of shots the player can take so the more accurate they are the higher a score they will achieve.

The ‘Things’ are incredibly adorable little creatures with suction cups for mouths that cling on to platforms and suck in bubbles as they go. With 5 different characters and 3 different worlds, the player can unlock upgrades to help them achieve a higher score. Fling a Thing is appropriate for any age, the controls are so simple even a three year old can play, yet it’s still challenging for any age.

Big Blue Bubble is excited to be releasing this game both in Flash and iOS formats as they are the perfect platforms to highlight the fluid controls and physics of Fling a Thing. Android users, have no fear! The Android version will be released very soon.

Fling a Thing is something you just have to try out for yourself. Be one of the first to grab this next big hit!
