David Cameron is, it seems, a big fan of Angry Birds, which has also ensnared footballer Gazza, though we don't know if either of them has opted for the Eagle. The Prime Ministerial news was tweeted by Andy Payne, chairman of the UK Interactive Entertainment Association, though Number 10 has yet to confirm that virtual pig …
"now that the Prime Minister is doing it, mobile gaming obviously isn't cool any more. "
This reminds me of a story I heard years ago.
A member of Steps (the dance pop band for kiddies) wore a Gap shirt on Top of the Pops.
The Gap released an immediate apology to customers and offered an unconditional refund to anyone returning the offending shirt.
Shouldn't he be playing Zynga's latest extension to the Farmville franchise, "toffs and oiks"?
Senseless and tedious game
Anyone who likes it must have a head full of feathers.
"Gazza, on the other hand, reportedly bought an iPad specifically in order to be able to play the game - which fits given that it will also run on an iPhone, an N900 or any other Symbian^3."
He he he he.....
Oh it's just some tale about a game on a toy computer.
I was expecting a story about certain people being keen on irate ladies.
Bugger that! I am off to play GTA IV on my PC..... Something you wont see Mr Cameron playing publicly - just think of the headlines lol
Why is this news?
Oh, wait. It's not.
Did he expense the game though?
I tried the Android beta, and whilst it's good, it's not exactly new.
I remember playing Gorilla.bas on MS-DOS 5 or something like that. PS3 (and I believe PSP) has PAIN, which is infinitely better....
Has to be Fragger! Far more fun, especially when you bounce the grenades of the same bonce several times and the suspects go red and become very irate!
How can this title not be about some mobe-throwing model?
Its the touch interface, stupid!
free the mice ;-)
how much bigger a splash Worms would have made, if mobile phones* were around back then.
*well ok, technically they were around, but nothing even vaguely like a modern phone.
Gazza plays it, and you say it's a "puzzle game"?
Better than Blair
At least this PM can use a computer.
Blair was famously technophobic, probably why so many government websites were IE only to start with, no clue of how to implement web access for all. He just asked the most famous person in IT he could think of for help.
So obviously if you ask Bill Gates to come over and advise on web sites, obviously you're going to end up with Windows/IE only websites.
"The Eagle is a new feature, by which players can pay extra for a free pass to the level,"
How can it be a free pass if you're paying for it?
