Angry Birds is a huge hit and Rovio has spun off a series of sequels. And then, you’ve got the knockoffs like Angry Turds. Well, there doesn’t much more turd-slinging than in the square circle of professional wrestling, so we somehow find ourselves looking at WWE Superstar Slingshot for the iPhone.
The app, as you can imagine, is pretty much Angry Birds, except the birds and pigs have been replaced with guys in tights. Developer Genera Interactive have included ten superstars from the WWE to feature in the game: Big Show, Edge, John Cena, Kane, Kofi Kingston, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, The Miz, Triple H and Undertaker.
There are 15 levels and 135 matches in all, including several that are named after popular WWE properties and pay-per-views. You can go to the Royal Rumble, for example, or participate in the Hell in a Cell. At least, that’s supposed to be the appeal.
But really, it’s Angry Birds with sweaty guys. Pick it up in the App Store for $1.99 if you really can’t wait for yet another Rovio stage pack.[iTunes]
