Reviews

"You’re going to play Offspring Fling at least twice. Actually, you’re going to play it a lot more than that, but twice – to completion – is your absolute minimum."
5/5 – Hookshot Inc.

"Content that appeals both to average gamers and the elite of titles like Super Meat Boy."
9/10 – Game Zone

"It's not a gimmicky concept stretched until breaking point over a handful of levels, but a fully fleshed-out offering that milks admirable variety from the core idea of throwing chicks around a room."
Rock Paper Shotgun

Quick on the go puzzles in extremely cute 2D visuals with equally cheery string soundtrack. Puzzles vary for both reflexes and thinking. Totally perfect for a relaxing yet challenging time now and then. Again: So cute.

This is one of those simple games that I cannot stop playing. It's just the right level of difficult: It may take a few tries to beat a level, but I'm not ripping my hair out with frustration. I'm also willing to replay levels immediately after completing them in order to get a better score because I feel capable of achieving the goal times; they aren't unrealistic amounts.

The art style is simple and cute. It reminds me of pokemon and others bits of my childhood. When I'm not trying to cut down on my time, I like messing with the environment, mostly destroying dandelions. I feel like there should be an achievement for destroying x amount of dandelions. The first time I died, I laughed at the explosion animation; it was perfect. I also enjoy the sound effects.

Overall, this a a perfect not-too-hard, not-too-easy game. I can keep track of time with the "shadow" of my previous play. The countdown doesn't start until I press a key, so I have time to strategize. I highly recommend this game.

A Fling, a fling, a one time thing.

Offspring Fling is one of those unfortunate cases where a great art style, catchy music, and interesting concept (speed running x puzzle solving x tending to your flock) come together in a game bogged down by floaty, imprecise character movement and poor controller implementation. The real challenge here is getting the character to do what you want consistently.

Typically, one might be expected to adapt to the controls over time, but since the player is tasked with performing actions within a very narrow window, every second you're left fighting them, is time lost in your attempt to achieve the goal. The result is a very frustrating experience.

The inclusion of a level editor is a welcome surprise since this leads to an unlimited amount of extra content (stages) you could potentially create for yourself, or share with others online.

Graphics options are sparse, ranging from two preset windowed options to two preset fullscreen options. They serve their purpose but it's nothing fancy.

Bottomline: Unless you're proficient with just the keyboard itself, or prepared to configure a controller through third party software such as joytokey, I'd say pass on this for now (although there is potential for things to be fixed in the future).

edit: Join the beta branch for a build of this game with better controls that actually make the game enjoyable (although proper menu navigation is still lacking, you're at least able to control character movement with the dpad).

If you ever sit at the computer, re-watching your favorite tv series, or chatting with your friends, and you need a game that will occupy you, but won't take all of your concentration, this is it.

I used to play minesweeper or free-cell on days like that. Now I play Offspring Fling!

It's a simple platformer, with numerous levels, puzzles, and a variety of obstacles. The goal? You are a small, furry creature, whose offspring (and a lot of it) got scattered all over. You need to find your babies, and transport them to safety (on your head, or by throwing them around). It's super cute, and the levels can get super difficult. It requires a lot of thinking and skill, and timing. But it's a small, simple game that you can pause at any second, so it doesn't take up your whole mind. I usually play it while skyping with someone, or chatting on facebook.

Plus it's super duper cheap. Or at least it was, when I got it.

The graphics are old school 16 bit. And there are OVER 100 levels. The soundtrack? As adorable as the game.

So if you're looking for something small, simple, and fun to do while you're waiting for a video to buffer, or something. Go for it.
