FlickBuddies has a cheeky name that resembles another word if you glance at it quickly. The game does provide good, clean fun, though it still is a casual encounter.

Two people can play this 99-cent iPhone game (even four on some of its 12 boards) but for large groups the iPad version (which costs a dollar more but comes in high-def) is probably preferable. The goal is simple - flick your character at the scoring target, and the most scores in a minute wins.

It is never as simple as a straight shot, however; there's nearly always an obstacle or a bumper, or your opponent's buddy, in the way, making the action somewhat random but still an amusing time killer.
