For football fans that have had enough of the noisy vuvuzela horns at the World Cup, can now get an iPhone app to silence the horns in a virtual way. Vuvuzaga 1.0 is a game that lets players roam through a virtual stadium silencing the long noisy horns.
Around a million vuvuzelas have been sold so far in the build up to the World Cup, and have come in for some criticism from certain quarters. Protests from several teams and some broadcasters raising complaints against the horns were rejected by FIFA.
Japan defender Tulio Marcus Tanaka complained that “You can’t hear what your team-mates are saying from two meters away”. The game is easy to use and suitable for all ages to enjoy. Players take control of some fun characters such as “Chav, WAG, and Fat Banker” as they roam around silencing the vuvuzelas.
Vuvuzaga 1.0 is on the App Store for only $0.99. Requires iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch with OS 3.1.3 or later.
