You can play in single-player mode or against a friend, requiring players to slingshot discs into the rival’s court. Featuring various discs with unique powers and boards that evolve with obstacles, Disky is a fresh take on the classic game of air hockey for mobile devices. The game can also become the life of your next party with gameplay perfect for tournaments.
