Party games are a difficult fit on smartphones. Most of them need freedom of movement, huge peripherals, and large, obnoxious crowds of onlookers if they're really going to work.
Which makes Ring Fling a pleasant surprise. It takes the competitive, simple nature of the very best party games and squishes it down into a package small enough to fit in your pocket. Or in your bag, if you're playing the iPad version.
The game is a cross between an air hockey table and Hungry Hungry Hippos. Each player takes control of a neon-bordered section of the screen and eight rings. A number of jagged shapes appear in the centre of the screen, and it's up to you to flick your rings at them to force them into your opponent's areas.
Frantic, fast, and a little bit special, Ring Fling is a brilliant party game in your pocket
