In what is shaping up to be a battle of epic proportions we have Minecraft Pocket Edition vs. Angry Birds in this year's APP Bowl. Will the ground game of the app from Mojang be able to chip away at Rovio Entertainment's speedy air game?
Will the crafty Miners be able to hold off the Murderous Birds (I'm looking at you Ray Lewis)?
If you would like to bet on Minecraft Pocket Edition ($6.99 iPad/iPhone) or take your chances on the the crowd favorite Angry Birds ($2.99 iPad or $.99 iPhone), place your bets on one of the squares below:
For an in-depth analysis of this match-up and expert color commentary we turn to veteran crafter and pig killer Kyle Goodman who had this to say about this year's game:
"The 40Miners strength is definitely in their ground game. They have axes, picks, shovels, swords and hoes (not that kind of 'ho). These guys really know how to survive and have built a solid foundation to be ready for any attack. It's going to take more than a creeper to stymie their offense.
The Mad Ravens expanded their payroll and really upgraded in the off-season with the in-app acquisition of greater size, super slingshots, eagle eye aim and their all important secret weapon -- earthquakes. Nothing puts fear into the Crafty 40Miners more a major quake."
