I’ve been playing video computer games since roughly 1983. I go back to Pong as well as Pac Man and also L. A. Swat for the C-64. I haven’t discovered an activity that’s more insidious, a great deal more devious, or more enjoyable than this particular online game where you throw shot birds into green, diseased- and demented-looking pigs in order to keep them from taking and eating your eggs.
This online game is written and published by a company named Rovio. Rovio is a mobile games publisher launched in the year 2003. Angry Birds, released in 2010, has now gotten to the stage where it’s been downloaded over 30,000,000 times and, according to an article posted on CNN’s web site, will soon be making over US $ 1M every month off of simply advertisement revenue on the Android platform. This doesn’t count anything it gets from its sales of plush Angry Birds from its web page or any cash generated from Apple’s various products. If this doesn’t convince you of exactly how sizzling the overall game is, well, I’m not sure that anything at all will.
This online game itself starts innocently enough: You have a 2-3 red birds who look quite angry due to the fact a group of green pigs has just ripped off your eggs. They’ve set up in a protective position and your job will be to launch your birds from a pre-built catapult directly into the pigs’ structure and kill every one of the pigs. The red birds themselves do not have unique powers, and that means you just aim, launch, and hope. As you advance through level after level, you discover new birds with assorted capabilities as well as new different types of pigs (I love the Adolf Hitler pig!). The difficulty of each and every level slowly and gradually heightens until finally you look up and recognise you’ve been on the same blasted level for eighty seven minutes and your family members can’t determine the reason why your face looks just like you’re having a heart attack!
