Angry Birds Review

By Gus McZeal |

At over a billion downloads, Finnish developer Rovio’s Angry Birds is currently the most successful downloadable title of all time, which is quite an achievement for a game that has little story to speak of. A flock of rather charmless multicoloured birds are pissed that they managed to let a drove of green, limbless, and apparently brainless pigs steal their precious eggs. Just what the pigs want to do with the eggs is left unexplained, but the birds are angry enough about it that they’re willing to perform acts of suicidal terrorism to get revenge. Just who will look after the stolen baby birds when they hatch? I don’t think we should dwell on this potentially tragic question for too long…

Angry Birds’ gameplay is extremely simple. In the left corner, our furious fowl perch next to a crudely built slingshot—perhaps I’m being overly critical of the device’s engineering given that the birds have no arms and presumably rather small brains. On the right side of the screen the game’s villainous thieving pigs squat amongst teetering constructions of rock, ice and wood that could only come from the minds of swine. As the player, you’ll launch birds in deadly arcs across the map by tracing your finger across the touchscreen and releasing when you’ve found the appropriate angle of attack. It’s a simple but addictive premise, and surprisingly satisfying when you succeed in crushing the pigs beneath their perverse monuments. Your score depends on the number of birds you use: the more pigs you can kill with each launched bird and the more birds you have left at the end of the round, the higher your score will be.

The Angry Birds themselves come in several varieties, which are activated either upon impact with a physical object or pre-emptively when the player touches their device’s screen. The standard red bird—the one appearing on all the merchandise for whatever reason—has no special abilities, although supposedly it is responsible for engineering that ghetto-ass slingshot. Uh, good for you, buddy. The blue “scatter-shot” bird can split into three smaller birds; I’ve yet to find a truly good use for this poor creature, but I’m assuming there must be one. The triangular yellow birds demonstrate a particular fury when they see their piggy nemeses, and are capable of launching themselves at high speeds at their targets. White birds can dump eggs on the pigs, and black birds are living time bombs that can blow up the walls behind which the enemy swine are smugly ensconced. The gameplay is extremely addictive, encouraging you to find new strategies to take out the pigs so you can get the highest score.

With 120 levels, multiple challenges, almost infinite replayability, a ton of downloadable content and a bunch of wacky Hollywood tie-ins with franchises like Rio and Star Wars, it’s clear that Angry Birds has become the killer app for mobile gaming, and is here to stay. I’ll be interested to see how the franchise develops and sustains itself in the future. Hopefully Rovio won’t have to resort to swine and bird-flu tie-ins anytime soon. Angry Birds gets a Z-Score of 88%. It’s only a dollar. Buy it already.
