iPhone App Review: Angry Birds

Multi-coloured exploding birds and pigs that are set to destroy the word, what’s not to like? Angry Birds has captured the imaginations of gamers all over the world, and the fact that it is one of the most popular iPhone applications ever is just a bonus. If you haven’t experienced the thrill of launching those angry little creatures at the pigs (which let’s face it, look a lot angrier than the birds), then you really haven’t lived yet. Well, that or you don’t have an iPhone. Either way, you are definitely missing out. So, what’s it all about?

Well, we start off this crazy adventure as an angry bird, obviously. The aim of the game is to destroy the pigs that are set on their path to world domination. Of course, it is not as simple as it sounds. These pigs are jammed in between, on top of, and next to different structures. These structures are made out of glass, wood and bricks. However, you have to correctly angle your bird in the catapult in order to make the structures collapse, thus destroying the pigs that are eager to stick around.

So, we’ve established that this is a good game to play, especially whilst on the move, but what are the things that really make this game excel in terms of portable gaming?  Well, first of all there is the fact that there are over two hundred frustratingly brilliant levels. With that amount of levels there is no way that you can ever get bored of this addictive game. Physics are incredibly boring, we all know that, so what better way to enjoy physics than to fling explosive poultry at things? Both educational and good for anger management!

Considering this is a review and all, it would only be fair to put in some of the negative things about the game. However, this is hard because there really aren’t any. OK, that’s probably not true. The game can often be very frustrating. If you lack patience then you don’t want to play Angry Birds because you will probably blow a fuse. The only other negative aspect of the game is the fact that the strategy is fairly limited and oftentimes it is a case of luck as opposed to skill, although the majority of us will claim to be some kind of Angry Birds Jedi. Well, I am, you’re not.

In all seriousness, Rovio Mobile truly has outdone themselves with this fantastic game. For those of you who are still having some doubts, just download Angry Birds Light, the free taster, and see for yourself. Once you have realised that this is a game that you absolutely have to have in your life then you can pay for the full version. With that, I will leave you with this. Angry Birds is a game that every single iPhone user all over the world absolutely has to own.
