Probably the cast of characters behind it. Or the absurdity of it.

As an aside, people are wondering why Touhou is so popular, even though very few people play the games seriously (or at all)

the vast majority of people are simple minded. and I think mostly kids play it.

and for your aside, how can you say something is popular, if no one plays it

I dont really understand the appeal for the game myself. I recently got a iphone and downloaded it due to "Everyone" enjoying it but never find myself playing it.

It's mostly one of those games that "kids" enjoy a lot because of the characters and the level of steady challenge. But at the same time adults get hooked for the same reasons. Also If you are bored in class or at work (privileges permitting) this is a mind boggling way to pass time! I mean your just like "ok one more level"!

I think it depends on the person playing it. I got it just because I wanted to see what the fuss was all about, played it for a while because it was fun, but after a few levels it stopped being fun, so I stopped playing it altogether, I barely play it now, the only reason I see for playing it is when I need to kill some time and there is nothing to do, but how many times does that happens? not much... time is money :D

its very fun...but too simple of a game to be a world wide hit?

Simple perhaps but it seems to have taken the world by storm, I mean you can walk down any shopping center, strip mall, or mall in general and see kids wearing the shirts, hats, belts etc. It's really amazing to see what things become cultural hits!

This cracked me up :lol:

One thing I would like to say is that what I don't like is that sometimes (and a lot of people do this) you just keep launching birds at random because it seems that some levels are not designed with a way to strategically beat it but with a cosmetic design instead. I have found myself beating hard levels by accident when my well though strategy doesn't work and I just start launching birds at random and BAM! ... perfect score. :roll:

Also, sometimes it's hard to accurately repeat one shot over and over unless you are playing it on a tablet (I'm talking about difficult shots)

To get to the addiction, you just have to look around. It's the smartphone in general and not the game itself.

I'm going to draw flames, but I don't care. I have an addictive personality and can't get addicted to dumb games. Weak minds seem to be in their phones (for the most part) far more than they should, and if they're distracted by a game then they're all over it just as easily. Look, if two people standing right beside each other text on their phone instead of turning their head and talking, then a dumb game is right up their alley.

FB and it's Zynga games shouldn't be ignored either. You have all this ability, and what you chose to do is this!? I'm not giving you a cowpie so you can level up or whatever and I don't care about the shitty steak you just broiled wrong. It's really a social problem. I know I'm the typical old man, but damnit...I grew up with a stick and it was everything to me. I also read books instead of watching cats on youtube to drain my brain. It's so easy now that you don't need to use the brain. Ever seen Mike Judge's Idiocracy? "Ouch my balls" is really the next reality show if we keep this up.

Tisk, we were such a progressive species. Ray Kurzweil's ideas just got fast-forwarded. The pigs win...

Dumb games are just that "DUMB" I would add angry birds to that list, but I have too played dumb games before, compared to what we have now.

Angry birds has a couple of fun levels then gets down right stupid. I am sure you have found at least one other game that cost more then $0.99 that was just as dumb?

As far as addiction, I would not call it that, just a fad that will fade away like all others.

Idiocracy is sadly moving to truth. But I most enjoyed the big screen TV that must have been at least a 80" flat screen. In front of the guy eating a tub of butter, and 90 percent of the screen was commercials (we are getting there with the BS that shows on the bottom of are screens now) Even with that huge 80" TV the screen "Ouch my balls" only was shown in a small 12" part that was left for watching that idiotic show. LOL
