Quirky App Of The Day: Take A Spin On The Wheel Of Misfortune

July 26, 2013

Wheel of Mis-Fortune (Free) by DartFrog llc is a game that lets you punish the various jerks that you come in contact with. Maybe your next door neighbor keeps borrowing tools and doesn’t return them. If he does return them, they’re rusted and ruined. Your coworker continues to show off your work to the boss and claims that he did it himself. Shameless. Perhaps you haven’t entered the workforce yet, and you’re forced to deal with the kid at school who hasn’t cleaned out his locker since freshmen year. His mold experiments are starting to creep into your personal locker space. Revolting.

What do you do when you feel like you’re surrounded by jerks? Is there any justice? Is there any hope? Probably not. These people tend to live life while oblivious to how much they affect others. However, you can silently punish them on your wheel of misfortune.

I’m not advocating that you build a giant wheel in your basement, kidnap these jerks, and throw real darts at them to vent your frustrations. That would make you a violent sociopath. You can, however, carry out this plan virtually. No laws will be broken, no one actually gets hurt, and your psychiatric record stays squeaky clean.

Throw the darts at the wheel while it spins to earn points. Each dart that hits the target is worth 300 points, but each bullseye is worth 500. When you’ve cleared all the targets on the wheel, you move on to the next level.

I know it might be tempting to actually throw the darts at the people strapped to your torture device, but that’s not the point of the game. I won’t judge you if a few darts happen to find their way to the head or stomach of your victim. However, your goal is to miss the poor sap.

You have five lives. Each time you hit your victim, you lose a life. The wheel spins faster for each level that you clear. It becomes harder to miss the limbs that are stretched out across the wheel.

This game offers only one in-app purchase. You can choose to have the ads removed for $0.99.

Everyone needs to vent their frustration in one way or another. Rather than resorting to violence or vandalism to cope with the inconsiderate nature of your fellow human beings, you can punish them virtually where no one but you will ever know.

Wheel Of Misfortune is a universal app, and it’s available in the App Store for FREE!
