Gangnam Style Massacre
In case you haven’t already heard of the new Gangnam Style dance, it came from a k-pop single by a South Korean music artist named PSY. The song was released this summer as a lead single in PSY’s sixth studio album. In the music video, the artist does a dance that has come to be called the Gangnam Style dance. This music video has been watched over 820 MILLION times on YouTube, which is currently the most watched video on the entire site! Before November 25, 2012, Justin Bieber’s “Baby” was at the number one spot! If you haven’t yet seen the most watched video on YouTube, it’s definitely a must.
Only because I love the new dance, I downloaded Gangnam Style Massacre. At the time, the app was ranking as the 17th top free app in the app store. I figured it had to be decent, but boy, was I ever wrong! I’ll tell you a little about the game, before I get into exactly what it is I don’t like about it. First of all, the game is pretty simple. Your only job is to take your bow and arrows and shoot them to hit as many vases off the top of your friend’s head, as you can. Aim too high, your shot is a waste. Aim too low, you kill your friend, and the game ends. This is the entire object of the game! That’s all there is to it! It has to be one of the most stupid games I’ve ever downloaded, not to mention that it’s actually very hard to hit the vase! You use both of your thumbs to aim your bow and arrow. If you beat a level (which is done by shooting the vase off of the guy’s head numerous times), you start the next level by doing it all over again! No, thanks! The only reason Gangnam Style Massacre got any hype at all is because the title of the game has the words “Gangnam Style” in it! Even though the app is free, don’t download it. You’ll delete it within minutes.
