Mr Mubarak tried to overcome the game for 30 years, but barely able to make it past the fourth level. This, which was a classified information within the presidential palace, leaked out to the public this year, evoking mass demonstration soon after. A spokesperson for the president denied this initially but soon succumbed to the pressure from the public.

"The people of Egypt have spoken, their voices have been heard," Mr Obama said. "Egypt will never be the same again."
"They have made it clear that nothing is more important than having a leader whose flair is in the game of Angry Bird. They will be the new powerhouse of the game."
Announcing Mr Mubarak's resignation, Vice-President Omar Suleiman said the president had been trying in vain for the past 30 years.
"In the name of God the merciful, the compassionate, citizens, during these very difficult circumstances Egypt is going through, President Hosni Mubarak has decided to step down from the office of president of the republic and cancelled his account for the game," he said.
"May God help everybody."
In Cairo, thousands of people gathered outside the presidential palace, in Tahrir Square and at state TV.
"You should have mastered the game you sucker!" they chanted in reaction to the news of his eventual resignation less than 24 hours later.
Opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei said: "I knew he couldn't play well when we had dinner together at a banquet several years ago. I asked him to show me his highest level. His fingers were handicapped and he needed the help of his bodyguards to understand the instruction!"
"I can't believe he couldn't get pass level four after 30 goddamn years,"he told al-Jazeera TV.
"Even my grandson, who is barely 3 years old, could master level five by now." he continued as he banged his fist on a nearby table, which was received with a cheer from the crowd.
Meanwhile, Iran described the ousted president as a "shame to Africa".
European Union leaders reacted positively to the news of Mr Mubarak's resignation.
Foreign policy chief Baroness Ashton said the EU "respected" the decision.
"Well, anyone with an iphone or a smartphone has installed the application nowadays. So there is no reason, I mean absolutely none, for anyone to play badly," she said.
"I can't believe he actually had to lie to keep his position. I mean how difficult can it be? Getting pass at least six level should not be a problem for a 30-year player, unless he is mentally-retarded."
"I'm glad that I've reached the eleventh level now." he said with a proud grin on his face.
