You know what really grinds my gears? Angry Birds.
I downloaded this beast of a game this last December and it's had me mesmerized ever since. The game has great control, especially for a touch-based game, interesting concept, and is easily accessible for anybody. Plus, it's 99 cents on the iTunes App Store, so how can you resist?
What I wasn't prepared for was the incredibly addicting gameplay. Who would've thought that slinging birds at green pigs in a variety of structures would be so addicting? You all know the story: green pigs steal a bunch of birds' eggs. The birds, these "angry birds", go after the pigs by getting a giant slingshot and firing themselves at the pigs until all pigs are exterminated.
This game is as memorable for being addicting as it is for being annoying, and it leaves many more questions than answers.
I'll try to answer these best I can.
The game begs to be played until perfection, until every golden star is acquired. In addition, there are a bunch of golden eggs hidden throughout the worlds, which unlock fun and whimsical levels, like a bunch of pigs squished together like sardines, or a large structure where you have to set off dynamite to kill all the pigs like a giant Rube Goldberg machine. And if you don't get all those stars, or all those eggs, then prepare for an onslaught that would scare even Alfred Hitchcock...
The game doesn't know when to quit either. Every so often, it updates itself, giving itself more levels and angry birds, forcing you to play for all eternity...
And that, people, is what really grinds my gears.
