Imitation is always the best form of flattery. WWE honchos probably got dollar-envy so much from the gazillions that Rovio earned from their Angry Birds game. WWE, Inc. has released a physics-based game patterned after Angry Birds for Android mobile phones. It’s called WWE Superstar Slingshot and it sells for $1.99 on iTunes.
Instead of launching angry avian avengers, in WWE Superstar Slingshot, you launch very angry wrestlers! The evil Steve McMahon has stripped you off your world wrestling championship belt and you must seek your vengeance. Use the wrestling ring’s ropes, pull it and catapult a big-muscled wrestler into an opposing wrestler!
This cheap iPhone game app is in my opinion a lot more fun than Angry Birds. Wrestling on TV maybe fake and obviously scripted but WWE Superstar Slingshot’s physics programming is definitely unpredictable. It takes a lot of practice to do a critical bulls-eye catapult hit! The developers of this game obviously copied Angry Birds but they wrote a much more in-depth storyline and gave this genre a more challenging game play.
There are 10 playable WWE superstars. You can choose your catapult ammo from John Cena, Big Show, Triple H, Undertaker, The Miz, Kane, Edge, Randy Orton, or Rey Mysterio. The objective of this game is for you to win your world wrestling championship belt again. You will have to hurdle many levels that’s based on 15 WWE Events.
The graphics of WWE Superstar Slingshot is tastefully comics-styled. It’s cartoonish and easy on the eyes and your phone’s processor. It plays smoothly on iPod Touch, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 even on older iOS versions (down to iOS 3.0). No fancy 3D graphics here, but the roaring audience of this game is a lot more fun than Angry Birds boring soundtrack! Well, that’s just me.
I’m definitely buying this game. I am a fan of WWE! If I can’t be like those sculpted giants prancing on TV, at least I can satisfy my bloated ego by tearing the adonis-like body of John Cena into a pile of steel girders and oil barrels!
