You know that noise you heard last night? Well that was the collective sound of rejoicing iPhone gamers worldwide. They were geeking out, doing the “Happy Happy Joy Joy” dance over the highly anticipated release of Gameloft’s Brothers In Arms 2. And of course today, every freaking iPhone game review blog will put in their two cents about how Brothers In Arms 2, built specifically for the iPhone, is utterly orgasmic.
Meh! Screw Gameloft and their state of the art first-person shooter 3D game. The real gaming news from last night was the EPIC release of Hungry Hungry Hippo!
Originally introduced as a board game in 1978 by Hasbro, the objective of Hungry Hungry Hippos is simple … whoever can spaz out the hardest and collect the most white marbles by slamming the crap out of their hippo over and over again, WINS! This mindless game is loud, obnoxious and is an effective form of birth control for any parents considering additional offspring. See for yourself … check out this Hungry Hungry Hippos commercial from the early ‘80s … and be amazed how fast those hippos go from eating the marbles to excreting them.
“I WIN” … oh yes you will with this stunningly awesome release from Matchy Games. And although there are no worries about losing an eye from real flying marbles … we must warn you … Hungry Hungry Hippo for iPhone might induce a seizure due to the frantic gameplay and strobing rotating psychedelic backgrounds within the app.
So think about it … why would you drop eight dollars on what should prove to be one of the best iPhone game releases of the year, Brothers In Arms 2, when you can spaz out like Amy Winehouse in a mental hospital with Hungry Hungry Hippo for iPhone. Oh and did we mention this method of birth control is FREE [iTunes]?
