Shrouded in a carnival-style atmosphere, Knife Toss challenges players to toss knives (imagine that) at balloons mounted on a spinning wheel. Unfortunately for him, a skinny clown happens to be mounted to that same wheel. Pop the balloons and avoid the clown for maximum points and for the chance to progress. Each level contains a number of balloons needing to be disposed of in a prescribed amount of time. The accelerometer controls crosshairs which the player must aim correctly.
