Monty Python’s Cow Tossing HD is a new game for the iPad that looks like a blend of Angry Birds style gameplay with a healthy does of Monty Python zaniness.
Oh boy does this look fun. I saw a preview writeup on it at Macgasm recently and I’ve been looking forward to seeing more ever since. Hell, even the App Store description is good entertainment in its own right. I love the opening line:
Epic, historic…and totally inaccurate. Arthur and his knights, charged by God on a sacred quest to seek the Holy Grail, find a castle inhabited by you, merry and mischievous French barbarians whose master claims to "already have one".
Defend your Citadel with an adjustable catapult against those English types who feel enraged by your outrageous accent, using a variety of projectiles that belong more in the farmyard than 10 feet up in the air. Fling chickens, cows, European and African swallows, and even the kitchen sink to keep those knights out before you have to fart in their general direction.
Tell that silly king to boil his own bottom and claim his mother was a hamster, and build up your arrogance meter to unlock other animals and taunt that silly king a second time.
– 80 Levels of English invasion!
– 6 different types of animal to throw
– Your catapult gets better as you go
– Power-ups mid-flight! Watch out for the Holy Grail when it appears
– Clips from the movie you can unlock
– Game Center-enabled!!
I can’t wait to try this one out.
