In December 2010, one year after its launch, the popular bird and pig slingshot game Angry Birds was the year's most downloaded game. And why wouldn't it be? It's the perfect mix of cute characters; a slingshot mechanic that anyone from age 7 to 70 can understand; and tons of challenging levels that make you want to go back for that perfect 3-star rating.
There have been several new versions featuring new characters and new holiday themes, and there's even been a "Star Wars" version. They've all spent time on the top-10 list and continue to be some of the top downloaded games to this day.
