How To Play
Your goal is to get items from your desk to a trashcan on the other side of the room. Making things more difficult, a fan will push the items off to the side. The fan changes speed and direction after each shot, with speed values going between 0.00 (off) and 6.00. In order to make it into the basket, you'll have to thrown the object into the wind, so it arcs into the basket. Simply put your finger on the item and flick it in the direction you want it to go.
- 0.00 - 1.00: Fairly trivial for heavier items, but lightweight items can still be pushed out of the way.
- 1.01 - 2.50: Still fairly easy to make the basket, but you'll have to throw off to the side, especially for lightweight items.
- 2.51-4.50: At these speeds, even the heavy objects will have to be thrown in a wide arc.
4.51 - 6.00: The lightest objects can border on impossible to get into the basket, and even the heavy ones will need to be thrown towards the corners of the screen to get them into the baskets.
As you get consecutive shots into the basket, you'll earn score multipliers. Every four shots boosts your multiplier by 1, to a maximum of 6. Missing a shot resets your multiplier to 1x.
- 2x: 2 consecutive shots
- 3x: 3 more consecutive shots, 5 total
- 4x: 4 more consecutive shots, 9 total
- 5x: 5 more consecutive shots, 14 total
- 6x: 6 more consecutive shots, 20 total
The easy way to get shots is to look at the menu bar on the top and figure out what spot on the bar you have to aim at for each wind speed. This will change depending on the item and mode, so just practice until you can get shots in regularly.
All modes are more or less the same, though the difficulty varies greatly, as do the points earned by making a shot. The bigger the level, the more precise your shot has to be in order to get it into the basket.
|Cubicle||Small||+1||You can hit your co-worker with items. You earn +20 by getting an item into the coffee cup (only small objects can fit).|
|Intern||Small||+5||An intern carries the basket back and forth.|
|Warehouse||Medium||+10||You can blow up the left wall to reveal another basket.|
Paper points can be exchanged for "stuff", which falls into two categories: items, which are alternate projectiles, and power-ups, which are single use cheats.
Items are what you throw into the baskets to earn Paper Points. Differences in items are not merely cosmetic; they vary in weight, size, and whether or not they bounce. These will force you to readjust your aim for each item.
- Weight: Heavier objects aren't blown as hard by the fan, so you don't have to throw as wide. Very light objects are near impossible to get into the basket at 5+ speeds.
- Size: The larger the object, the more precise your aim has to be to get it into the basket.
- Bounces: Non-bouncy objects will burst upon impact, including the rim of the basket.
- Extra: Special abilities.
|Paper Ball||0||The original. Accept no substitutes.||Very light||Small||Yes||Default|
|Tomato||25||Who throws a tomato? Honestly!||Light||Small||No||-|
|Crushed Can||250||Be sure to recycle.||Light||Small||Yes||-|
|Banana||500||This is bananas!||Light||Small||Yes||-|
|Football||750||Tossin' the old pigskin.||Medium||Medium||Yes||-|
|Cola||1000||Now that's refreshing.||Light||Small||Yes||-|
|Stapler||1500||Nobody touches my stapler.||Medium||Small||Yes||The best for making shots until you can get the Eight Ball|
|Watermelon||2000||This is going to get messy...||Heavy||Large||No||-|
|Flying Saucer||2500||Straight from outer space!||Very light||Medium||Yes||Floats further than normal when coming down|
|Super Bouncy Ball||5000||Bouncin' around!||Light||Small||Yes||Bounces very high|
|Burning Ball||7500||Do you guys smell something burning?||Light||Small||Yes||Can set some things on fire|
|Eight Ball||10000||You sure you wanna make this shot?||Heavy||Small||Yes||The easiest to make shots with|
|Grenade||12500||Boom goes the dynamite!||Heavy||Small||No||Can blow up some objects|
|Pudge Ragdoll||50000||Twice the size, twice the points!||Medium||Large||Yes||Double points on all shots|
For the most part, the stapler and Eight Ball are the best items for racking up points as they are small, but heavy and don't explode on impact. That said, you will need to use all of the items if you want all of the achievements.
Power-ups can be purchased at any time, and are activated as soon as they are purchased. Due to the high cost, they aren't that useful for earning points. What they are good for is earning achievements since you can compensate for difficult shots or undo a mistake.

When the win condition for an achievement is met, a message will appear at the top of the screen, but play is not interrupted. Achievements can be viewed by clicking on the trophy icon on the main menu.
Achievements fall into one of several categories:
- Make a certain number of shots with each item
- Earn a 6x multiplier (20 consecutive shots) on each mode
- Make a certain number of consecutive shots on each mode with any item
- Hit background objects with certain items

- Earn a lot of paper points before trying these so you can use Rewind if you miss one. For the Multiplier Master bonuses, you can use Multiplier Boosts to get yourself up to 6x and then make a single shot to get the achievement.
- The 100, 10000, and 1000000 paper point and shot achievements are totals earned, counting points spent on items.
- Make X shots with item Y achievements do not have to consecutive and count across all modes.
In addition to Paper Toss 2.0, there is the original Paper Toss and Paper Toss: World Tour. If you want points, but don't feel like earning them, you can purchase them with real world money.
