Perhaps like millions of other Nokia N900 users the world over, my favorite game to play on my phone is Rovio's Angry Birds.
Why do I like it? I guess it's the whole package; the totally cute birds and admittedly cuddly-looking pigs, the smooth graphics, the accuracy in the trajectory of flying birds, the ear-catching and borderline-annoying sound effects, the way the birds explode into a flurry of feathers a few seconds after hitting something solid, everything. I really don't think there's a single bad or misplaced element in the game; Angry Birds, as a whole, is plain amazing.
For other Angry Birds fans out there, I'd like to share with you a GigaOM video of Mikael Hed and Peter Vesterbacka of Rovio in Finland discussing how Angry Birds came about and where the company intends to take the game --
Angry Birds Movie?! Why not?!
