Description

Posed as part of Shell Oil's catastrophic ArcticReady.com campaign for Arctic oil drilling (but actually masterminded by Greenpeace and The Yes Men), this game puts the player in charge of an offshore oil rig under assault by swarms of calved glacier icebergs (or bergs) resulting from the climate change produced by, yes, carbon emissions caused by human petrochemical use.

The player's goal is to click the mouse on every glacier set on a collision course with the stationary derrick before they crash together and release massive amounts of toxic crude sludge into the fragile Arctic ecosystem. The longer play goes on, however, the more bergs swarm the drilling platform (in a berg rush?) until their chance encounter together becomes inevitable. The game, then, is played for high scores, with a full game of mere seconds being rewarded with a score represented by a ludicrously high monetary value.

Trivia

Title

Earlier in 2012, comedian Conan O'Brien also derived the same punny name from Angry Birds but with a different angle: rather than being about ICEbergs, his comedic game proposal (from the Wed, Apr 4th, 2012 episode of his TV show) involved catapulting Jessie Eisenberg, Andy Samberg, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Michael Bloomberg at pigs in shacks.
