You can’t talk about the concept of casual gaming without mentioning Angry Birds in the same breath. It’s the ultimate modern-day casual game series. Hand your smartphone to a toddler with Angry Birds loaded up and watch what happens.
If you’re one of the dozen or so people who have never played the game, the premise is as follows: pigs steal the birds’ eggs and hide in poorly constructed shelters, which the birds — who can’t fly, for some reason — slam themselves into via a giant slingshot. You pull the slingshot back with your finger, adjust the angle, and let ‘er rip. Three hours later, you’re cursing yourself for not going to bed at a reasonable time.
If game has been downloaded a bajillion times (12+ million to be more precise) and is available on just about any device that has a touchscreen and can connect to the internet — even a few without touchscreens, too.
