Angry Birds is the most likely candidate for dethroning Namco’s 30-year-old Pac-Man mascot as the most identifiable game and character. On Christmas Day alone, the game was downloaded six and a half million times.
Have you tried using pacman on touch screen phone. need i say more.
Yea and it works just fine, whats your point.
It actually does work fine. PacMan DX is sweet on my phone. Either way I thought Mario dethroned PacMan a Loooong time ago as the most identifiable.
I think this game has undeserving popularity. Angry Birds is pretty much a more colorful, visually appealing ripoff of the flash games Castle Clout and Crush the Castle. Popular games such as Pac-Man or Mario at least had originality.
It's not even a good game. It's a game designed to limit how much skill can affect the outcome of the game. The effect your shots have are far too random. Making the exact same shot over and over can have wildly different outcomes, so even when you know what needs to be done you just need to keep trying until it finally succeeds. Try it your self, use the bomb or balloon birds, on some levels you can fire them so that they roll to the same position every time before exploding/inflating, that way you know it's the same each time. It's about as much of game as a slot machine
if this is the future R.I.P life calls me
I play'd angry birds for the first time last week while i was bored at some family dinner. I got bored of playing it after 10 mins.
They do try so hard to give credit to these cellphone games. A free game is popular who wouldve thought?
Wife and daughter love this game. It's also the first game my wife has played that has shown her how addictive a game can be for me, since she's stayed up until 2am playing on the PS3 version of Angry Birds I got her. She went online and watched the little videos promoting the newer versions of the game and couldn't stop laughing at the little animation trailers and stories they'd made for Angry Birds. Yes, as a life-long gamer since the early 80's, it's almost a slap in the face to see such a simple game be so much more popular than everthing else in gaming. But I don't see regular gaming affected by the success of Angry Birds (though we'll see if 3DS and VITA sales are affected long-term soon enough), so it doesn't really bother me that this game is becoming such a national and global icon. I got bored playing it, but my wife has fun trying to blow up the little stages, so I can't say the game doesn't serve some kind of purpose.
