I saw it on the main page of GameSalad.com. It quickly got more than 100,000 plays. Perhaps GameSalad is turning a corner.

    i dont really like the game. it is too similar to angry birds and i dont like angry birds. the programmer and artist did an awesome job though. it would make a great angry birds template.

    I thought the same thing as well. The arts great and everything but it seems like its trying to be exactly like angry birds except changing up the characters.

    I can name so many gs games right now off the top of my head that deserve to be on the front page more then that does

    I personally was surprised its Even allowed to be listed as its an obvious rip off of angry birds but apparently According to GameSalad its not Copyright infringement because its a political satire and thats protected from copyright laws. So long story short, if you want to skate by with a rip off add in some politics and your good to go.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    I think the point is being missed — GameSalad is getting some good press for a change.

    Hey guys I was watching some Indian news channels and there was one show where they are reading the newspapers. Angry Anna is in the newspapers!! Sadly there isn't anything about GameSalad.

    I just played for like 5 minutes and found a lot of bugs with it. Seems like someone didn't really play-test this much. Otherwise, I guess it's cool.

    i get glitches when playing it. sometimes the screen doesn't scroll toward the target and u just stare at the slingshot. sometimes the level just freezes after you've hit all the targets.

    and not a glitch, just noticed that the heads seem to casually move down behind that stone thing below the slingshot. im guessing ur not meant to notice that lol

    Interesting... the plays seems to have dropped in half. That's disappointing, the game was close to half-a-million plays.

    I think this is because they have updated with a version 2, and the play count has reset.

    For gameplay count, We reported it to GS Tech support. They told us "We discovered a glitch in the play counting system. This was not discovered until shortly before our press release went out. It turns out the counter was not tallying plays correctly, and was actually overcounting. For some reason, the counter was actually counting number of visits to the page (or any page with Angry Anna embedded on it PLUS the actual number of plays. This means, that if someone loaded the pages with the game, but never clicked the "play" button, it would count as 1 on the play counter. If they loaded the page AND clicked the "play" button, it counted as 2 on the play counter."

    It is still a more than respectable play count. Well done. And a pm sent.

    cheers kipper
