Misunderstood Pigs: A Different Take On Angry Birds

It’s about time someone challenged the story behind the hit mobile game: Angry Birds. Pigs are peaceful animals- why would they ever start a conflict with birds? (Obviously in order to rise to fame with a hit game). Look how clueless the pigs in the Rovio Mobile game seem; maybe the birds need anger management counselling and are just displaying anti-social behaviour.

Gordon Hempton, the developer of the new iOS game: Misunderstood Pigs, has taken the side of the pigs. He describes the game as “the inverse of Angry Birds“. Having played the game, I can confirm that it’s exactly that. You get the dotted line which shows you the projectile of the incoming bird and the aim is to use objects to protect the pigs from the impact of the bird. Being the inverse, the simplicity of it is brilliant and the gameplay is quite fun.

The game isn’t as developed as its counter part: There is a lack of music and a lot of annoying ads. But then again, the game is free on the iTunes App store. So if you have the time and space on your iDevice, you can go download it before it becomes a big hit and gets a price tag. Click here to be linked to Misunderstood Pigs on the iTunes App store.

If you downloaded and played the game, what do you think about it? If you didn’t, what do you think about the idea? Please leave any comments below.
