Online game in India called 'Angry Brides' wages war on illegal dowry demands

NEW DELHI (AFP) - A new online game in India called 'Angry Brides' which seeks to highlight the problem of illegal dowry demands for women has attracted more than 270,000 fans. The game by online matchmaker shaadi.com - inspired by the hugely popular 'Angry Birds' game - sees players attack prospective grooms greedy for dowry with a variety of weapons, from a brick-red stiletto to a broomstick. The three grooms - an engineer, a doctor and a pilot - dodge the attacks while demanding dowries starting at 1.5 million rupees (S$38,016). Each time a player hits a groom, he or she wins money towards a virtual anti-dowry fund. The game, available as a free application on Facebook, has already attracted more than 272,000 'likes'.
