A new game hoping to capture Angry Birds’ momentum launched today involving not pigs, but pooping birds and humans. Raging Birds has players trying to protect their eggs from a young prankster by defecating on his head. Really.
In Raging Birds, a happy little red bird was living in peace and waiting excitedly for its baby birds to be born when a rambunctious boy came along with some rocks and his slingshot. You know what happened next: the boy attacked the bird’s precious eggs, leaving it up to the player to protect the eggs from the nasty boy by pooping on his head to chase him away.
Players must also dodge the boy’s flying rocks and collect falling leaves to unlock different helping birds to defeat their foe, but really, the poop’s the highlight, right?
Raging Birds also includes a special way for players to stop the youngster by tapping on the “Grandma” icon to have her appear. This makes the prankster improve his behavior temporarily while granny’s around, buying players some time to setup their defenses or make their next move. Doing so, however, removes 10 leaf points from the player’s coffer each time Grandma shows up.
Raging Birds has simple cartoon graphics and lets the player control an army of birds with different specialized abilities to help protect their eggs. All the damage they do to the prankster, though, can potentially be healed by his pet dog, who licks the boy’s wounds.
Raging Birds requires an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad running iOS 3.2 or later. The application is 12.2 MB in size and costs $0.99.
