Order Up! is one of the best pick up and play titles I’ve experienced on a handheld in quite some time.

A temporary Angry Birds theme park has opened up in China as part of the Window of the World amusement park. The attraction was built as a part of a month-long stress reduction festival. Just as in the game, players use a catapult and launch their choice of bird to a structure containing those dastardly pigs–this time with a view of a scaled down Mount Rushmore.
Facebook is packed to the brim with casual game diversions like Farmville and Bejewelled Blitz, but the upcoming Dirty Dancing adds a dose of Grey, Swayze, and ’80s cheese to make an intriguing mix.
