Office Jerk iPhone, thumbnail 1
Working in a cubicle is boring. This simple fact has created wonderful pastimes like waste basket basketball. The classic Paper Toss perfected the sport on the mobile.

Office Jerk attempts to update Paper Toss, but ultimately falls flat. As in Paper Toss, you throw a wad of paper by sliding your finger up the touchscreen. The toss has to be adjusted based on the 'wind' created by a fan.

Office Jerk brings only two changes to the Paper Toss theme. First, instead of a waste basket you’re aiming for the back of a nerd’s head. Second, beyond paper you can toss staplers, erasers, and other office items.

Revenge of the nerd

Unfortunately, the changes are merely cosmetic. It’s funny watching the nerd get mad at you when he gets hit in the head, but that gets old quickly. Worse, the size and weight of the different objects seem to have no effect on the toss.

Office Jerk gets boring pretty quickly, but it's free to download in its basic state so it won't cost you anything to see for yourself.

If you find the draw of throwing projectiles at a nerd irresistible and wish to experience it without ads you have to pay 59p for the privilege. An 'ACME' pack of additional projectiles is also available for £1.19. 

Only a die-hard lover of nerd-baiting is likely to get much pleasure from these extra missiles, or from Office Jerk generally. While the gameplay is fundamentally solid (inevitably, given that it's so close to Paper Toss), Office Jerk is funnier than it is fun. And it's not all that funny.

While the theme is fun and the graphics are nice, Office Jerk is a poor-man's Paper Toss
