While writing this Angry Birds review, something occurred to me. Why are there frying pans flying around on the title screen? Is it for the pigs to fry the eggs?
Anyway. If you’ve never played Angry Birds before, you’re in for a treat. It’s the best selling paid application for the iPhone and is even awesomer on the iPad.
It’s a simple sort of game. Some evil pigs have stolen your eggs (you’re a bird by the way) and you must recover them.
How you do this is part of the charm of this delightful game…
You fire your angry birds from a giant slingshot and smash into the pigs and their defenses. Haha, sound silly? Well, it is, and huge amounts of fun.
The most important part of any angry birds review, is a discussion of the birds themselves.
As you progress through over 100 levels of pig smashing chaos you’ll get different type of birds that are added to your arsenal. Each with their own unique ability…
The small red birds – They are your basic ‘smash into things and knock them down’ type of bird. Nothing special and the first bird you get to use
The pointy yellow birds – They can supercharge and fly at great speed. Especially useful for plowing through planks of wood.
Tiny blue birds – They split into 3 and are awesome at smashing glass; the little devils!
Fat black birds – My favourite. They smash through nearly anything and then you can make them explode, causing massive damage to everything in its radius.
Fat white birds – Drop explosive eggs. I find these a little annoying actually as it’s difficult to perfectly place your bomb and they’re stupid-lookin’.
Giant red birds – You get these in the later levels and they are like big red battering rams.
While all this may sound like a totally ridiculous idea for a game, it works really well, and this angry birds review was the most fun I’ve had with an iPad.. If you haven’t tried it yet, you can play the trial version and then upgrade for a couple of bucks to the extra levels.
