Summary

Fling To The Finish is a brilliant game to test anyone’s friendship level. You are tied together by bungee rope and have to navigate these beautiful levels full of triple ard bastard traps and obstacles. No matter what you can guarantee there will be swearing, there will be screaming but most of all there will be fun! It may take you a while to get to grips with it especially if you go all Micro Machines on the Megadrive with it and share a controller, it’s just another way for this game to be mental. They have added in extra modes on the levels so it gives the much-needed variation and unpredictability the genre craves. Streamers and viewers will love the random chaotic bullshit it brings whereas families will like a new way to keep the kids screaming and hating each other, Fling To The Finish is still in early access but it is already worth the price of admission, brilliant fun.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
