Took me long to write about this one. These days, whenever one has an iTouch, iPhone or iPad and talks about games, Angry Birds comes to mind right away. I was so curious that I just had to download it right away to see why all the fuss about this game.
While my wife did get addicted to it, I would have to say … not me. This game is nothing new. I already played this kind of game before and that was South Park. The good thing about this game is that there are so many levels that buying it is really worth it. That is all I can say.
Addicting? That depends on your preference. I am not so in to this kind of game play. As I said, my wife likes it but me? Not quite to the point of getting addicted to it. There are many other games way better than this. But kudos to Rovio for creating this when they were about to go bankrupt.
So what is Angry Birds all about? These are a group of birds out on revenge against green pigs who stole the their eggs. You use the unique destructive powers of the different to lay waste to the pigs’ fortified castles. Angry Birds features hours of gameplay, challenging physics-based castle demolition, and lots of replay value. Each of the 240 levels requires logic, skill and brute force to crush the enemy.
You drag each bird using a sort of sling shot and try to destroy the green pigs’ with as few birds as possible. The lesser number of birds that you use, the more bonus points you get. That is all there is to it. But, with so many levels to play, this is where the game keeps you glued to it for many hours, just as it did with my wife.
I still recommend this game to you if you have a new Apple device. After all, a few dollars and so many levels is a good combo for a good game.
