Who misses local multiplayer? You? And board games, are those to your liking?
Whether or not you fit into the board game luvvie category is, to a certain degree, irrelevant when it comes to the mobile gaming space, mainly because setting up a Monopoly board on a train isn’t exactly the most user-friendly of exercises. Simply put, then, sitting around a table, pitting one’s wits against one’s peers and exchanging memories past just doesn’t tend to work when you’re on the go. And ain’t that just a crying shame?
Enter Moo Yu’s Ring Fling.
Fast paced, frantic and pretty darn addictive-looking, Ring Fling serves up the almost unique premise of four-player, same-screen multiplayer on a portable iOS device. Each player must use the touch-screen interface to thrust coloured circles into their opponent’s scoring zones, all whilst keeping an eye on their own scoring areas in an attempt to avoid meeting a similar fate. And if nothing else, the game looks as though it’s set to be a bastion of repetitive strain injury and shattered relationships, but that’s not exactly our problem. Well, not until the lawyers come calling now that we’ve officially endorsed it, anyway.
