Robin Hood’s generosity à la 2020
Robin Hood: Shifting Riches Touch® was one of the mobile games launched during the big lockdown in 2020, 9 years after the launch of its desktop version. It was during this period we learned that a virus didn’t see the difference between rich and poor and during a surreal time, the world started to equalize! The world economy got a drastic hit and it was soon enough that the rich started to feel it in their big wallets. If a group of people was supported by a government, it was the less fortunate. The dream of every Robin Hood in this world with a big heart and lack of greediness.
This obviously is an extremely simple version of the situation as consequences of a world on lockdown are too complicated to explain in a mobile slot review, but you might get my point already. It was during this period that the world’s wealth started to shift, a consequence that totally fits the Robin Hood: Shifting Riches Touch®, although nobody was actually stealing from the rich as it was all due to a virus that originated at a wild animal market in China.
If Robin Hood existed, he would have been thrilled to see that the rich were losing ground while, in many countries, the less fortunate were supported by the governments. Robin Hood’s intentions were basically the same, but he was an outlaw stealing from the rich. According to legend, Robin Hood was a highly skilled archer and swordsman, and he is said to have robbed from the rich. Usually not acceptable, the legend also tells that after the robbing, he shared his profits with the poor.
We will never be sure if the legend is based on true facts or if the story is completely fictional. True or not, one with a kind heart will see the point of the story. We have to wait a while to find out if the big lockdown in 2020 truly caused a shift in wealth à la Robin Hood, but one thing’s for sure, the virus didn’t make a difference between the rich and the poor!
