This is a fairly basic side scroller game that is a little tricky to learn, but the bonus is that the Wii Motion Plus Controller which is now required for some other games comes included in the package. Flingsmash itself is fairly simple - you smack a pingpong type character around to reach targets before you run out of time. The controller comes with a silicon protective cover too.

The game is about a bouncing ball. For an adult I found it not so interesting, but my kids enjoy it a lot. I just bought the game because I wanted the remote: if you look it that way, you get a free game for the remote, so it is a good business! The remote you get is identical as if you bought it alone.

Bought this combo as I was looking for a second remote for our new Wii. I had read the reviews and decided that this was probably an ok game for my kids, as they are quite young. Well, we've had it for 2 days now, and my 2.5 year old is much better at it than her 4 year old brother. If you are looking for a game that you can get everyone involved, it's great. You mostly only need to hold the remote, not many buttons to push. (at least in the first few levels)
Again, not much to it, but still, my little girl thinks she's the life of the party when she gets to play this game.

The remote is the Nintendo standard remote Plus with wii motion inside, comes with the rubber cover.

Good buy, especially considering that at the moment this combo is $5 cheaper than the remote itself!

Came for the controller, stayed for the game. Nov. 16 2010
By David Monroe - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Fun:   
The main reason I bought this package is I just got my limited Edition Red Wii. I actually ordered this to go along with it before my Wii arrived.

I've noticed that when it comes to packaged together Wii stuff, occasionally the Game+Control combo packs are exactly the same price as a control alone (occasionally cheaper), or in this case a small amount more. I needed a second Wii Remote Plus to go with the red one that came with my Wii. I figured I could gamble an extra $10 to try this game out.

So far I'm pleased.

This game is sort of a puzzle game - even though so far I haven't actually found any real puzzles to solve - but action enough to not be one. I have a feeling this game is going to be a hit with my casual gaming family and friends. I haven't played it in two player mode yet, but I expect it to work out quite well and I expect the above mentioned people to love it. I'll report back if I find out otherwise.

Both left and right hand modes are selectable, I don't know how that will work with a righty and lefty trying to play together, but I assume one is going to have to bite the bullet and hold the Wii Remote in the wrong hand.

Verdict - yes it was worth the extra $10 on top of the Wii Remote Plus. It's better to think of this as "Wii Remote Plus with Bonus Fling Smash" than it is to think of it as "Fling Smash with bonus Wii Remote Plus" as it's sold. Base your purchase decision on the price of the remote not the game itself unless you've already played the game.

If you don't need the extra Wii Remote Plus I really can't recommend spending this amount of money for the game alone unless these types of games are your thing. The game itself feels like a really well done mobile phone game adapted to the big screen. Not worth the full price, but well worth the extra $10.

---Update----
I played Fling Smash nearly all the way through this past weekend with my daughter. My seven year old loves it, she requested it repeatedly this past weekend. She fully grasped how to play it, it's very simple, I'm sure a kid younger than her could grasp it just as well.

I stand by what I said earlier, don't expect a lot of depth, it's just a fun simple one or two player game. Still worth the $10 extra, but not a whole lot more.

---Another Update---
I was babysitting last week, the boy I was babysitting loved the game. We made it all the way through in a couple of hours. My daughter still loves playing it. Right now this is the most requested Wii game in my home for the 12 and under crowd. Again, I still don't consider it a "serious game" for serious gamers.

Now that this combo is cheaper than the remote alone there's no reason to buy a black Wii Remote Plus any other way.

As many state, the Wii Remote's a plus, the game's...well.... Nov. 22 2010
By romevi - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Fun:   
The accuracy of the Wii Remote Plus is on par with the standalone MotionPlus. Because I wanted to get the black Wii Remote Plus to replace my older Wii Remote and MotionPlus Bundle, I opted to get this set with the game. Hey, it was only $10 more for the bundle. I expected to be pleasantly surprised with other game and controller bundles, a la Mario Kart and Wii Play (tanks is still a great game after all these years), but I was let down.

---WII REMOTE PLUS---
The Wii Remote Plus comes with a silicone jacket, and everything looks like the previous black Wii remote model did, except for the fact that the MotionPlus is built in and the words "Wii MotionPlus INSIDE" are stamped on the bottom front. The back is still a soft, non-glossy surface, whilst the front is a fingerprint-magnet gloss. Also, I'm not sure if it's just my specific controller or black models in general, but the buttons are more clicky, which I like. I checked the buttons on the white and red Wii Remote Plus, but found they were the same as previous models.
On to the game.

---FLINGSMASH---
The game comes more than just a puzzle. Trying to add a story, your characters pretty much have to collect items in order to progress, and the premise lies in saving an island from an evil power.
I had been quietly looking forward to this since seeing pre-release demos and exuberant first impressions from online gaming sites. If this had been a game alone I probably wouldn't have ordered it. Anyway, my nine-year-old sister had played it first and found it to be very fun; since I knew some reviewers complained about control issues, I asked her if the controls were hard. "Yeah, they're a little hard," she replied. I then proceeded to play a two-player round with her, and, initially, found it a blast. A few levels in, though, I swallowed my thoughts.

What blows the game are the controls. Go figure; a game touting the use of the MotionPlus fails in actually utilizing it. The sensitivity is too great, and I found myself propelling my character where I didn't intend. It's not like it's glitchy; I realized I was actually moving the character all over the place, but my movements were natural rather than sporadic. I was using the same jolts I'd used with previous MotionPlus titles, but this game is far too sensitive. The A button allows you to stop in midair, but many players will tell you it's much too cumbersome to utilize that feature.
Once I "fling" my character in one direction, it's hard to tell when he'll stop, so I try to "fling" him the other way, but he either hasn't finished his first fling, or he goes too far. Furthermore, say I was swinging him left. As a rightie, I'm not going to keep my arm left after swinging the remote, so I'll bring my arm back to its natural position and continue to fling him left. However, the game reads my moving my arm back to the right as actually flinging the character to the right--which I didn't intend.

It's a shame because the game has a lot of charm and presents what could've been another big Nintendo character (new Smash Bros. character?), and the levels have a ton of great puzzles. But because of the MotionPlus' sensitivity, mastering the controls proves futile.

I gave up after a while, and my sister was left to her frustrations when confronting a boss.
"Why aren't you helping me?" she asked.
I hesitantly replied, "It's too hard." Then I waited till she finished so I could take over the Wii.

Kids love it Dec 10 2010
By val - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Fun:   
Totally bought this for the wiimote & hoped my 7yr old would like the game for a couple of minutes at least. He loves it & will play it for ridiculous stretches of time, if allowed. Best part is that his 3yr old sister can play at the same time as the pony-tailed girlie character. This is the only game she CAN play, since her wild arm flailing seems to be an asset here.

I bought it package for the free Wii remote controller plus. My husband and I don't like the silly game at all. But my kids love it (under 5 years old). They play it excitingly for more than 30 minutes each time.

Well.... Nov. 16 2010
By C. L. Hanson - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
I bought Flingsmash based on Nintendo's usually reliable track record of providing fun games with their first party controllers and periphials (Wii Sports Resort, Mario Kart Wii), with my decision also influenced by a July E3 preview on IGN.com where this game was called "Span Smasher" and sounded like the sleeper hit of the year. The fact that it came with the new Remote Plus made it also appear to be a great value.

That being said...if you gamble, sooner or later, you'll lose. Nintendo took a gamble that Artoon (developer of Yoshi's Island DS) could make a game to showcase the Remote Plus' abilities. I took a gamble that the game would be the hit that IGN said it would be. We both lost. Flingsmash simply does not work as intended, and could very well be the most disappointing purchase I've made for the Wii yet. The fact that Nintendo packaged this turd with it's Remote Plus makes me disappointed with them for not pushing themselves and Artoon harder to create a better gaming experience.

The premise is simple: you use the Remote Plus to smack the "hero" into boulders, prizes and enemies across a pre-determined course, trying to keep the character moving, as a 3 headed "Hydracoil" (dragon) is behind you. Collect 3 special coins scattered about the board, which transform into a pearl when you reach the end. Collect enough pearls and you face the "Boss" at the end of each stage and advance. As you progress, new action items appear such as cannons, spinners, tunnels...etc, and while it all sounds like a great amount of fun, it should be noted that the character seldom goes exactly where you want to smack him. This is not because I am "holding the controller wrong", or based on skill. I've played my fair share of Wii Sports tennis and other games where you hit objects and they go where intended.

As if graphics matter at this point, they are OK, showing a style reminiscent from Artoon's Yoshi's Island DS. The music and sound effects are by and large forgettable. The storyline is just there to give the character/game a purpose. Nintendo has made plenty of games with outside developers since the NES days, with silly storylines but solid gameplay. A good example was RARE's "Cobra Triangle". The most bizarre storyline ever, but a fun game. The only difference between "Cobra Triangle" and Flingsmash is that "Cobra Triangle" was fun.

If you need a new Remote Plus, this game is basically free. Without the Remote Plus, this game would most likely find good company in the discount bin.

Oh, and by the way, IGN changed their tune and ended up giving this game a poor rating as well. What happened since July?
