Ximad has released a super addicting PlayBook game called Throw the Knife. Even as I was gathering screenshots for this article I couldn’t put the game down. The premise is simple. Throw knives, shurikens, battle axes, and even forks at pesky bugs landing on a spinning yellow doll.
The games gets addicting because of the star collecting. There are mosquitoes that fly across the screen. If you hit one, you get 5 stars. With stars, you can buy crazier weapons, wacky outfits, different targets and more health.
The other part of the game that keeps me coming back is the smooth gameplay and accuracy. Knives can be thrown from any angle by swiping from anywhere. The important part is when and where you release your finger or thumb.
Check out more screenshots below and go grab Throw the Knife for your PlayBook. I’m only seeing the free, ad supported version on App World on my PlayBook, so just search for it there. The premium ad free version is $1.99 and you can get it by clicking here.
The picture below is Hit The Target game mode which I don’t think compares to Arcade. You only have 3 misses then it’s game over.
What’s your high score on arcade mode? Think you can beat my 794? Ya, you probably can.
