Thomas McDermott: "Even though a lot of people were more than happy to say a huge number of things - both good and bad - about the original Angry Birds, it was a game that never got much emotion out of me. It was neither the most impressive mobile game I'd seen, nor was it the harbinger of the gaming apocalypse some believed it to be. It was simply a good time waster to have at hand. It was a mindless game to play when waiting. Whether it be waiting in a car, waiting at the doctors, or waiting for a TV show to start, Angry Birds was there the few times I needed it. Then, when something moderately more important would happen, I would not give the game a second thought for the day."
