Review: Discover the Fun of ‘Angry Birds’ on Your Mobile Device
Since it was released in 2009, Angry Birds has become an international sensation, and you can now enjoy its unique gameplay on your mobile device. The classic physics-based puzzler puts your strategic skills to the test as you launch birds at the green pigs that have stolen your eggs.
The mobile version of Angry Birds is just as much fun as the original. You still get to use the slingshot to launch birds across the screen. The goal is to use the birds to knock down the structures the pigs are hiding in and, ultimately, take out the pigs themselves. It’s a simple, yet challenging, game that can provide hours of entertainment.
What’s great about Angry Birds is that it requires a lot more skill than it appears. You have to take into consideration the trajectory of the birds, the strength of the slingshot and the strengths and weaknesses of different bird types. Knowing when to use a certain bird and which pitfalls you need to avoid is key to getting a high score.
Aside from the actual gameplay, Angry Birds has some great presentation. The graphics are colorful and the sound effects add to the experience. The game is easy to learn and the levels get harder as you progress. There’s even a special anger meter that increases each time you suffer a setback.
The mobile version of Angry Birds also has a few features that are unique to the devices. For starters, you can make in-app purchases to get upgrades. There are also special daily challenges and tournaments that add to the fun. And if you are looking for an even bigger challenge, special golden eggs with special levels for you to complete.
If you haven’t played Angry Birds yet, now is the time. The game is available for both iOS and Android and is fun for all ages. Give this classic puzzler a try and you’ll be hooked.
