Amazing Alex is a FAIL! Bad Piggies and Angry Birds is a SUCCESS! The Croods? I don't know!

I know I'll get downvoted for this, but I never understood how Angry Birds became so popular. It's just a slingshot game but using birds as shots. The idea behind the gameplay is hardly original, although it's a very polished game. Then again, how hard is it to polish something so simple? Just as movies like Cast Away and Passion of the Christ saw huge sales compared to the puny production costs, I'll bet Angry Birds saw returns thousandfold in a similar vein.

original angry maybe not fun now but angry birds space where more than one element in the game is involved than just slinging a slinging shot and that idea wasn't original at the time it came out :/ and also bad piggies is a win

Rovio is an extremely clever company, they have been able to create such a huge brand from a little $1 app. Angry Birds Soap, Toys, Animations, Comics, Clothing, Accesories, etc. Marketing at some of its best.
