The Game of Life

Violent video games and birding are not things one generally thinks of at the same time—until now!

This little game has it all: Action! Gore! Cheesy circa-1985-arcade-game music! And an unavoidable reminder of the vulnerability of migrating birds.

Don't expect World of Warcraft-level graphics or animation here—but as you maneuver your flock of geese (I think that's what they're supposed to be) through the gauntlet that is the natural and manmade world, you'll be thankful you're not a migrating bird.

Haha! I just played it.....oh those poor migrating birds! My husband and I were just talking about the fact there were no action-packed birder games out there. Now there is... I'm forwarding your post to him!

Hi Kelly,

Birding IS an action-packed game on its own! But little games like this are a great way to sell birding to non-birders.

Ali,

I bet you got one or more of those bonus golden geese (or whatever they're called). Glad you enjoyed it!
