According to Eurogamer:

Figure was annouced by games developer, Dong Nguyen in an interview with The Verge.

But yeah its selling tons, people are playing it, its the 'new' Angry Birds/Tiny Wings type of basic game which everyone seems to be playing - depressing !
Now you know how us Wii owners feel when we're trying to explain to people how good games like Xenoblade Chronicles and Tatsunoko vs Capcom are, and everybody's going 'but the Wii's only for Wii Sports and mini games and waving your arms all over the place!' :lol:

Had a go earlier on as everybody seems to be talking about it at the moment.

Load of crap, didn't hold my interest for very long (scored 19 points after playing it on and off for about 15 mins). I can see why a lot of people like it as a quick time waster though.

Tried it after reading this thread. Scored 4 but deleted it after 20 mins. Fair play if some are enjoying it but I just found it too annoying *shrug*

I don't think people will be playing candy crush and flappy bird in 20 years time.
