Navigate through tricky obstacle courses to nab stars in this imaginative effort.
It's hardly a novelty any more that you can pick up great games for pennies, but few free games have ever been as good as Frisbee Forever.
As if to thumb its nose at the old-fashioned notion of charging $40 or more for the likes of Pilotwings, Kiloo Games has come up with a game every bit as entertaining using the usually hateful 'Freemium' model.
The first hour or so of content comes completely free of charge as you steer your frisbee through a series of progressively tricky courses, collecting stars and spinning through speed-boosting hoops and loop-the-loops en route to the goal.
Played via the responsive tilt controls, it's a perfectly balanced obstacle course that has you dodging and weaving between relentless trees.
The key to progress is collecting stars, and the more stars you collect, the more courses and miscellaneous upgrades you can exchange. Before long, you'll either have to go back and grind previous courses to collect all the stars you missed or shortcut the process by buying stars in packs.
Fortunately, most of that is optional, and if you object to paying to unlock most of the 90 courses, then you can just continue to grind away.
With production values that smell of money and brow-furrowing challenges, Frisbee Forever is an essential download. All you have to decide is whether to shovel some coinage up the developers' willing cash pipe.
