Catch Up on the News and Chuck a few Eggs in Breaking News! for Android

by On September 29, 2012

Some people love the news while others hate it, and almost everyone’s wanted to chuck something (sports scores)at the TV during a news story they didn’t like. Breaking News! From Harebrained Schemes gives you the chance to chuck quite a few things during the news as it’s part flinging game and part news app. Breaking News! is an Android app that brings you the news from 4 different areas including Politics, Sports, Tech, and Entertainment. When you click a category you’ll see a picture appear on some monitors with a headline going across a ticker at the top of the screens. If you like a story you can flick a thumbs up at the screen, and if you hate it you can nail it with a thumbs down. If you get tired of flinging hands at the screen there are a lot of other things you can throw and if you actually want to read the news you can click on the screens to get the full scoop. There’s also a little animated newsman on the screen you can assault with everything from rats and roses to trashcans and rocks. Breaking News! is a fun little flicking app and a very interesting way to catch up on the news. There’s a lot more to it than I briefly covered, and it will be interesting to see what the developers do with it from here. With the elections looming this would definitely be a fun little app to have on hand if you feel like tossing a few things at the screen. If you’d like to give it a look you can pick up Harebrained Schemes Breaking News! for free on  Google Play.
