Product Description
Fling!
Fling!
Fling!

Fling! offers a challenging yet cute puzzle game with territorial yet cuddly contenders. Facing a field of colorful, dough-eyed furballs, fling one into another until only one victorious furball remains. Don't get too confident; plan your moves carefully, or you're sure to share the board with other furballs and no more moves.

Becoming King Furball

Imagine your field as a grid. Fling furballs along a line into other furballs, causing the targeted furball to roll off the board. Furballs who are side-by-side cannot fling the other off of the board. They must be separated by at least one space. Furballs cannot be flung off the board unless knocked off. Use the undo and hint buttons when you get stuck.

It's a Furball Frenzy

Enjoy Fling! in four game modes: Free Play, Arcade, Challenge, and Frenzy. Freeplay mode allows you to solve puzzles at your own pace, and at any level of difficulty you choose. Unlock harder difficulty levels for a greater challenge. Arcade mode is a race against the clock as you solve puzzles of increasing difficulty before the clock runs out. Challenge mode requires you to solve sets of puzzles within a specific time frame, while trying to beat your personal best. Frenzy mode is a total fling-fest! Keep the board from filling up by flinging same-colored furballs from the board.

Fling! features 100,000 unique puzzles, so you will never encounter two puzzles that are the same. The puzzles are categorized into 35 levels of increased difficulty. Each puzzle has a single, unique solution.

Key Features

• Use hints and undos

• Listen to game music or your own soundtrack

• Compete for local and global high scores

• Begin where you left off with automatic game saves

• Switch themes and play with marbles or fruits

• Watch the informative tutorial and practice

**UPDATE** Please read the comment section of this review to see what the Co-Founder of Candycane Apps, Michael Bevin, had to say today to the Amazon customers when he posted comments to my review here, as well as other reviews, and just how untrustworthy this developer truly is. Read the comments he wrote and my responses to them, and you'll see why the lack of trust we had in this developer for any future sneaky add-ons was SPOT ON. For pretending to be a customer, and referring to himself in the third-person, and insulting the customers, he just lost another star. I'm trying to scrub off the last star, because it doesn't even deserve ONE at this point, but Amazon won't seem to let me.....
------------------------------------------------------------

First, it needs to be said that this app was an INCREDIBLE offender on what it harbors as far as permissions and add-ons. It's a FUN app, but was ridiculous in the spyware department.

TODAY, and ONLY TODAY, do you see a "cleaner" version of this app on Amazon as the FAOTD. One only needs to take a quick look on Google Play for both the free and paid versions of this to see the UNBELIEVABLE number of permissions those versions have -- the "regular" versions (see below).

Today's description on Amazon includes things that NOW do NOT RESIDE IN THIS APP. The only add-on is the Amazon Licensing. The only permissions UPON DOWNLOAD TODAY are the internet sockets, phone state and ID, network state, and preventing the phone from going into sleep mode. AND THAT'S IT. I'm not too keen on the phone state and ID coupled with the internet, but LOOK at what was REMOVED for this Amazon version: Feint and a boatload of permissions (again, see below).

As of 3pm Eastern Time, it has come to my attention that OpenFeint has been REMOVED from THIS VERSION on the Amazon App Store ONLY ! This still requires CAUTION for anyone that choses or has chosen to download this app. Is this a temporary ploy to appease leary customers, only to slip the unwanted data mback in at a later date when the dust settles ? Personally, I find it curiously suspicious that it was removed just for THIS version..therefore, FUTURE UPDATES COULD, possibly include adding OpenFeint back into this app.

***UPDATE***
If you go to the last page of the Comments section below, you can see for yourself just how deceitful the developer of CandyCane Apps really is! Then decide for yourselves if you can or want to take a chance in downloading this app.****

**ORIGINAL REVIEW **
I was so excited to play this game as soon as I saw the red Chuzzle looking fluffball in the app store tab on my Kindle Fire. Before I could start flinging some fur, I first needed to take the usual trip over to the Android Market for a little one on one comparison.

I mentally crossed my fingers as I checked out the Permissions. They were excessive. NOT a good sign. I can feel my heart beginning to sink... I'd have to look into those further but, quickly moved on in the hopes I'd find a reasonably honest explanation to the questionable permissions. That's when I found the evidence I was so desperately praying I would not find under the tab, "What's New" of their app. At that moment, not only did my heart completely sink to the bottom of my stomach, it rose back up into my throat, suddenly making me feel quite ill. The 3rd & last "new fix" explains the excessive Permissions in this app.

What's New in this version:

5.0 out of 5 stars Huh? I can't find OpenFeint on this app. March 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
No matter how hard I try and what tricks I use to make it reveal itself, I can't find OpenFeint anywhere on this app. I don't get the standard "No, Thank You. I don't like to have fun" splash screen. There are no OpenFeint junk files dropped on my SD card. I even turned off my internet connection trying to get the OpenFeint offline message. There is an in-app High Score Leaderboard (hence the need for the Network Permissions), but it appears to be a legit programmed part of the app, not an OpenFeint add-on.

Don't get me wrong--I'm very glad I can't find it--I hate OpenFeint. My only concern is that they are getting so sneaky about it that it can be invisible to the user. However, I doubt very much that that's the case. I'm wondering if the developers saw the start of the onslaught of OpenFeint complaints and quickly replaced it with a non-OpenFeint version.

Is everyone else besides me being hit with that crappy OpenFeint? If so, I wonder why I'm so lucky not to be--maybe I should play the Mega-Million Lotto today--it's over 540 million. LOL

As far as the game play goes, it's very good. I've played other versions of this type of puzzle game before and I've always enjoyed them. The pluses of this app are: smoother and brighter graphics, different modes of play (Free Play, Arcade, Challenge, Frenzy), and the number of puzzles (it's says 100,000 over 35 levels). All these features were lacking in the other apps I've played.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fling! is one of my all-time favorite apps! March 30, 2012
By Kimber
Verified Purchase
I already own this app, and Fling! quickly became one of my all-time favorite apps. Time seems to fly by when I'm playing, and there are so many things I like about the game. Great graphics, great gameplay, and I love the "undo" feature where you can step back one step at a time and re-think out your moves and where you went wrong - not to mention that the fluffy little game characters are so cute! If the fluffy game characters aren't for you, you can always use one of the other themes provided. This app is a definite recommend! I know I actually paid full price for this one, but it's been well worth the money. If you like logic puzzles, I'd definitely recommend you try this one!

Cute graphics will hold your attention for a while, but like a lot of puzzle games, after a time the game just gets too repetitive.
