Angry Birds started as a application made for mobile devices which have a touch screen. But the game created by Finnish computer game developer Rovio Mobile has become something of a sensation, with fans all over the world and one of the only games made for phones to become a household name spawning merchandise of every kind possible.
Angry Birds movie
It was not long ago when it was revealed that the game would be turned into a movie, the question on everyone’s lips was, how? This was a fair if concise question, especially when the game is a simple arcade style puzzle game. However, with all the big budget movies made from video games which have a deep back story maybe the simplicity of the game would mean the Angry Birds movie could be more entertaining and interesting than people would give credit.
But it seems the developers have bigger plans for the game which seems to be taking the world by storm, as it has been revealed that a new cookbook is on the cards.
It is safe to say that it could be a solid contender for cookbook of the year once it makes its appearance in bookshops everywhere. The book will be a collection of egg recipes from the maker of the computer game.
‘Bad Piggies’ Egg Recipes’ which will be released later this month will start simple and work as a teaching tool in how to make scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, fried eggs, and omelettes. After dealing with the simpler recipes it pushes the boat out with recipes for aioli saice (“Gallic Garlic”) sorbet (“Ice, Ice Baby”) and even noodle-crusted quiche (“Noodle-di-doo”).
All instructions in the book come with illustrations of hungry looking pigs, and to avoid confusion the publisher and the games developer have made a note to that ‘all recipes in this book are based on the use of regular chicken eggs’ rather than Angry Bird eggs.
Firing birds at pigs
The game itself is as simple to play and understand as the classics such as Tetris, Pac-Man, Asteroids and even Centipede, but with moves forward in technology the game is made even simpler for those new to video games since it makes use of touch screen devices. Players will fire birds at pigs using a slingshot, and according to figures released by Rovio the game has been downloaded 500 million times.
“Go ahead, crack an egg or two and fling your awesome self to new levels of egg-cellence,” says Rovio.
