For those who might be tired of purposeful, challenging or mind-stimulating games and are looking for a bit of mindless interaction to support a mental checkout, Fly Paper! for iPhone fits the bill. A simple time killer that pits the player’s ability to fling sticky orange goo in an effort to take out swarms of animated flies against a countdown timer, Fly Paper! is truly mindless entertainment. The only real goal is to score as many points as possible before the timer runs out – an action that requires very little thought, just simple touch and swipe.
Fly Paper! has a simple premise and pretty much fail-proof controls. Swiping from where the orange blob of fly paper starts to anywhere else on the screen will cause it to stretch out and stick to the new spot. The more flies it comes into contact with, the more points you earn. Insecticide point bonus and time boost power-ups randomly fall into view as does a buzzing bee that takes away time. The longer you can keep the timer running, the longer you can aimlessly fling goo.
