FlingSmash: Chad's impressions

The last game I'll write about from the Experience Nintendo Tour will be FlingSmash. What an odd title to try and describe. I can most liken it to the Lottery Ball minigame from Raving Rabbids TV Party. Like that game, you control a spherical character and bounce them around the screen. With massive points, bricks to break, and combos to earn, FlingSmash is a frenetic experience.
Movements is a direct result of swinging your Wii MotionPlus enabled remote. It could get a little tiring because it's a couple minutes straight of waving your hand about. Every now and then it slows the action down for a bit of story or hitting numbered balls in sequential order.
FlingSmash is interesting to say the least. If the rumors are true and it's packaged with a Wii Remote with a built-in MotionPlus, you can't complain. Otherwise, it seems like a very simplistic game that might have a hard time holding the attention of serious gamers. Hopefully we'll get more details and features explained as we get closer to the November release date.
