2010 TiPb Award for Favorite Addictive Game goes to...!

Your votes have been counted, your voices have been heard, and we're proud to announce the 2010 TiPb Readers Choice Award for Favorite Addictive iPhone/iPad Game goes to... Angry Birds!

Angry Birds is one of those rare games that electrifies a platform, becomes part of every conversation, gets downloaded onto every device and gets enjoyed by every iPhone and iPad user. You load up one of a variety of lethally enraged avians in a catapult and launch them at a bunch of fortified, thieving pigs. It sounds simple until you start playing and don't stop even when the sun goes down and the alarm sounds the next morning. That's what made it a phenomena and with word of a multiplayer option and a sequel in the works (from the pig's perspective no less!) it shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

We thank all readers of The iPhone Blog and every fan of Angry Birds for their continuing support," said Ville Heijari, VP of Public Relations at Rovio. "We've worked hard to deliver the best possible game experience on the iPhone, and nothing is more rewarding than the positive feedback we get from our incredible fan community. We will carry on making Angry Birds an even greater game in the future, and rest assured - you have only seen a tiny glimpse of the Angry Birds world!"

Congratulations to Angry Birds on their 2010 TiPb Readers Choice Award!

2010 TiPb Award for Favorite Addictive Game goes to...!


That game has been the #1 paid app for 99% of the time over the past several months. It was a no brainer

I don't really get the constant and continuous appeal of this game. I enjoyed it for about 3 days then deleted it.

Great game. But they've let it slip on iOS as they've concentrated on other platforms. I have a feeling it's not going to get as much success with any new versions.

Don't understand how the concept of peashooter is making so much money. I played this stuff on my Apple II.

I don't get why this game is so insanely popular. Really I don't. Not that I think it's lousy. Quite the contrary. I just don't get what it is that sets it so much apart in people's minds from every other game of its type.

Since when is 2010 over???? Surely several games will be released in the next months. One high profile one was released today/yesterday...

How many times have I lied down for bed and decided to play Angry Birds "for just a few minutes," only to realize I stopped played 2 hours later? Too many too count.
