From Resident Evil Revelations to Beat The Beat Rhythm Paradise and Nintendo Land, there have been some brilliant games released on all formats this year. You won't read about them here. For here are the worst games of 2012! Hope you haven't had the misfortune to play any of these.
10. Angry Birds Trilogy (3DS)
What is it? The premise is simplicity itself: some birds have their eggs stolen by green pigs (natch) who then secret themselves in precarious structures made of building site waste. The birds fulfil their titular destiny by getting furious and, with the help of your stylus or Circle Pad, slingshot themselves to death against walls in order to kill the pigs and get their potential offspring back. Each puzzle is a case of using the provided birds - each species has a separate ability - to destroy the pig resistance as quickly as possible, using direct hits and the scenery itself to complete your goal.
What we said: It's a pleasing enough action-puzzler - but we will say
you're making a fool of yourself if you do. It's £30. THIRTY! The equivalent package is under £2 on a phone. Need we say more?
