Let's face it: Monty Python and the Holy Grail has a special place in my heart. And the scene where King Arthur and his knights approach a French-occupied castle only to be insulted, pelted with objects and then have a rather large cow hurtled at them, only more so.
Thus it stands to reason that an iOS game centered around both the attack and hurling a very large animals to repel the attack would come into existence. Enter Monty Python's Cow Tossing HD, a title in which you take control of the French catapult and must fling assorted animals at King Arthur's forces before their battering ram destroys your gate and the invasion is complete.
Some writer's opinions here notwithstanding, Angry Birds is clearly a gaming phenomenon. While Plants v. Zombies, Peggle, and other app store hits may have their loyal fan base, the avian slingshot game has spawned toys, has been parodied as a Michael Bay film, is being used as inspiration by Ohio union members fighting for their jobs, and copied to death endlessly by app after app after app.
So if you've grown tired of the birds, if you've finished every level and await thirstily for an update, or if you're interested in twists on what is clearly destined to go down as a classic, come fly with us.
For some Monty Python fans this is a dream 35 years in the making. It may not seem like the most likely subject for a video game, but developer Zed Worldwide has reimagined the livestock catapult from the classic comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail as an Angry Birds-esque physics puzzle game.
