Flingers

Flingers is a simple, casual real-time/action Flower Defense game for Android. You fling pellets at the bugs that are trying to eat your flowers.

To fling pellets, you drag on the touch screen to operate a rubbery slingshot.

The game is playable but is not yet very polished.

Getting The Game

If you have an Android phone (e.g. T-Mobile G1), open the Market app, select Games, and look for Flingers.

If you don't have a phone but are intensely curious, you can install the Android SDK and run the game on the emulator. Here's the app package: Flingers.apk

TODO

The main TODO is to make the game deeper and more fun to replay. My current thoughts include:

A secondary TODO is to make the game more attractive. I don't want to spend too much time on this until the gameplay is better though. Plans include:

I am kind of liking the procedural animation and the antialiased vector shapes and the high frame rate, so I may resist the temptation to add much in the way of bitmapped graphics.
