"Angry Brides" strikes back at the man.

Unlike Angry Birds, Angry Brides gives players a chance to strike at chauvinist pigs. The game protests the (long outlawed) dowry in Indian culture.

“The Angry Brides game is our way of throwing a spotlight on the nuisance of dowry,” said Ram Bhamidi, senior vice president and head of online marketing for Shaadi.com, a matrimonial website with two million members.

“According to a 2007 study … there is a dowry-related death every four hours in India. We condemn this menace and have consistently run campaigns on social media to help create awareness of the issue.”

The monetary damage accrued by players is added to a total “Anti-dowry fund”. You can try the game on facebook here
