David Haye's Knockout Topples Angry Birds and Tops the Charts
May 27, 2012 in Games
[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Claiming the number one spot in the Games and Sports Charts and knocking the globally dominant 'Angry Birds' from the number one Arcade Chart position, independent one-man studio, Grubby Hands, is thrilled with their over-night success and the ever-growing popularity of 'David Haye's Knockout'.
'David Haye's Knockout' features the British boxer David 'The Hayemaker' Haye in action against an array of heavyweight opponents, including the big lump of lard 'D. Boy', strong and sharp 'Big Bro' and the hard as nails 'Little Bro'. This time round, Haye shows no remorse as he throws rapidly skilful combinations and a barrage of taunts to goad and overwhelm his foes and he even unveils a secret weapon when his opponents are almost out for the count!
"I'm delighted with the way the game has sold, and am pleased everybody seems to love the game play," said Haye. "We released the first version of the game last summer, but this one is unquestionably an improvement in all areas.
"Also, it's clear to me that people are attracted to the game because it's a little edgy and controversial, and far angrier than 'Angry Birds'. There aren't many other games out there that can be ended by a smashed bottle across the face. Whether we like it or not, controversy sells, and I'm no stranger to controversy.
"My next fight against Dereck Chisora on July 14 is a controversial event, and over 40,000 people will be in attendance on the night. Over a million others will be watching the fight at home. Fans want to see a proper fight and they want to see controversy, and this fight on July 14 delivers both."
Grubby Hands Company Director, Dr Danny Pearce added: "Earlier this week we climbed above 'Angry Birds' in the chart, and that game's sales exceed a billion. It is widely known as one of the bestselling games out there. To topple that game, even for a short period of time, is a tremendous achievement and goes to show how popular David Haye is right now."
