Like Father Like Son

The kids love playing games on their tablets, Angry Birds having been a particular favourite (even I was addicted to it for a while). My eldest (now 11) has been a fan for years, collecting all the games, play sets and plush toy characters for as long as I can remember.

But lately Angry birds Friends on Facebook has been the only game of the series in which we partake with any great frequency, it's a competitive game played out in leagues with a promotion and relegation system and rewards for performance to help your scores along. Each tournament contains 6 levels, with 2 tournaments a week, so enough to keep the interest going.

Late last year they invited players to submit ideas for new levels, with the best ones being made up into a 'Designed by You' tournament sometime in the new year. Sprog1 drew up a level and I submitted it, but with over 500 replies I played down his chances of success.

However, a few weeks back I logged onto the tournament, not realising it was the Designed by You week, and reaching level 5 I thought it looked familiar, then it dawned on me that the Boy's design had been made into an actual level :-O

The Boy's design :
King Pigs Secret Bunker

How it looked (with a few modifications) on actual gameplay 

Top of the League

Sprog1 was well chuffed (as was I) and we played on it all evening (as unfortunately I didn't log on until the last day of the tournament) but we both ensured we got top scores in our respective leagues, it was an absolute treat to play his own design, and like I say, only 12 designs were picked from well over 500. Well done 'The Boy'.  :-)
