-Create wacky inventions with Grug to open and explore new areas!

-Decorate your pre-historic world with the latest in caveman fashion accessories!

-Meet your favorite characters from the feature animation film from DreamWorks Animation!

I've seen the trailer just a few times, and I'm already sick of the movie.
Looks like a mashup of dumb-is-supposed-to-be-funny plus "caveman snark."

Movie looks terrible. DLed this for my 9 year old. More importantly though. I think this marks Rovio's first Universal App. Thanks for not making have to DL an HD version of the exact same game!

The pics and the sales pitch make it look like another NounVille. "Play" the "game" by spending real money and/or getting help from "friends".

Moving along . . .

So this gets posted a week ago as "X is going to be released soon" and the consensus was "this is a giant advertisement for what looks to be a crappy game," so MR thought an "X got released" would make a good article? Really?
