Throwy Circus, a blast of a time waster and a Windows Phone HERO App

Throwy Circus is a fun, simply laid out and challenging Windows Phone game that comes to our attention as today's AdDuplex HERO App. It's a target game that offers up 40 different targets to hit and only ten seconds to do so.

Being a HERO App, Throwy Circus joins a promotional campaign for Windows Phone and Windows developers on the AdDuplex Network. The campaign partners AdDuplex with AppDeals, TechRewards{.nofollow} and Windows Central to deliver a host of benefits to the top apps and games each month. Our role in the HERO App campaign is to offer a little exposure to these titles by sharing them with you, our readers. Such is the case today with Throwy Circus.

There isn't much to Throwy Circus, with a primary menu that offers up links to the game's social sites, access to your gaming achievements, access to the game's settings, and, of course, the option to actually play the game. Settings cover options for muting the sound and turning on or off the gaming commentary, tutorial and vibrations.

Throwy Circus presents you with forty targets that range from your garden variety of three-ring targets to moving cow heads. Your job is to hurl fruit and other objects at the target and hit as many as possible before the game timer hits zero.

Each game begins with ten seconds on the timer and with each target you hit a small amount of time is added to the timer. The mechanics have the object you are throwing appearing at the bottom of the screen and your target randomly placed on the display. To throw the object at your target, tap/hold on the object and slide your finger to aim your throw.

Your projectiles range from a slice of pizza to an apple to a piece of cake. Again, some targets are stationary while others move in circles, straight lines or in a zig-zag pattern. I have to say that the variety of targets gives Throwy Circus a nice edge with respect to challenge.

Graphics have a slight pixelated appearance and plenty of color. The challenge of gameplay will keep you on your toes and the duration of gameplay makes Throwy Circus perfect for those times you only have a few minutes to waste on gaming. There is a slight addictive pull to Throwy Circus the helps the free game hold up to longer gaming sessions as the need arises.

Throwy Circus

Overall, Throwy Circus is an entertaining gaming title well worth a spot in your Windows Phone gaming library.
