This cracked me up today. The following comments come from Shigeru Miyamoto.
“There aren’t many games that I’ve played recently that have been truly convincing to me. But that said, I have very much enjoyed Angry Birds, especially the way in which it combines traditional and new game elements in exciting ways. Angry Birds is a very simple idea but it’s one of those games that I immediately appreciated when I first started playing, before wishing that I had been the one to come up with the idea first. I mean, obviously I want to be the one creating the most convincing, surprising game ideas.
In particular the control scheme is excellent. When you analyze it, the controls are actually quite fuzzy in terms of the way that it works. It takes a little while to get used to the controls, I think, but once you’ve mastered them, you have a lot of precision. To make it the interface and controls work that well and intuitively… well, I think a lot of work went into getting that right.
Obviously, if the developer had created the game for Nintendo DS the controls would have been even better, but what can you do?”
All right all you little piggies and birds out there,
Here’s a little story for you.
Please remember, it’s December,
Now listen piggies and birds here’s the thing.
Let’s tell a story, that’s not so gory,
Turn your sling shots into swings…
While I was writing E3 posts, a new update for Angry Birds Rio was released. It has added 15 new Samba themed levels (with 15 more in the Samba section coming soon). Also, this update adds a new bird, Blue! Blue fly’s solo in this update (previously him and Jewel flew together) and he has a new ability! Whenever he lands (or you tap the screen) he freaks out and flaps his wings wildly and then falls to the ground.
Once again, it’s a free update. Angry Birds rules!
