Review: Angry Birds Games | My Reviews 16 JUN 2011

My goodness, what an additively fun game on any mobile platform!

Developed by Finnish software house Rovio, Angry Birds is somewhat of a phenomenon in the world of casual gaming, having easily captured the lion’s share of the mobile casual games market from 2010 onwards. It has become so ubiquitous that by now one is pretty hard pressed to find somebody who hasn’t heard of it before, a true testament to its popularity and uptake by all segments of the gaming market.

The game itself is a simple enough concept. Some nasty green pigs have stolen a group of birds’ eggs, making them very angry indeed. And these wingless birds are not past throwing themselves into structures in order to cause the escaping pigs harm and thus track down their missing eggs.

The gameplay is pretty straightforward. Each stage has a number of pigs strategically placed throughout, often protected by structures of various types of materials like wood, stone and ice. You are given a certain number of birds, of differing types, to hurl from a slingshot in order to either hit the pigs directly and make them explode, or cause the structures around them to fall down in such away that they strike the pigs.

As for the different types of birds, each bird is a unique color and has a unique strength and ability. This is what makes the game so tactical and frustrating as a puzzler, as you need to plan your shots carefully in order to knock out all of the pigs, all of which leads to a VERY addictive gaming experience that is suitable for all types of gamers, young and old.

If you have a mobile device then I HIGHLY recommend you pick this colorful and entertaining trajectory puzzler up, because you’ll kick yourself if you never get around to trying this one out! :)

Oh, and did I mention its free?
