All was well in ‘bird’-land. The 5 mystical birds had laid a couple of eggs. These birds, much like human mothers, cherished their eggs, so much so that even if a mosquito sat on it, they would squish it. One day, in their locality, a pig was eating. It did not like its food, so suddenly the pig became a non-vegetarian and wanted to eat the eggs. So the king-pig and his goons steal it and attempt to fry it. Here, began the fable of angry birds. Birds who would give their all to get the eggs back no matter what the cost. Well, though it somehow messes with the food chain, hence becoming otherworldly, it still succeeds to capture the interest of humans with no exceptions.
The birds are angry and want payback. Play the game, as these fiery birds went it out on the pigs, breaking wooden planks, glass and sometimes even stones. Every level, as they kill the pig and win, they get one step closer to redemption.
The birds are of 5 types:
The Red one: This bird doesn’t really have any special powers. It is with us the whole game right from level 1. It just goes in a projectile and breaks everything in its path, that it is capable of breaking.
The Blue one: This is the next bird that we are able to avail in the game. This bird has the capability of splitting in mid air if you were to tap it. This will be able to break 3 as many things while compromising on the force of collision.
The Yellow One: This bird is capable of increasing its speed in a burst mid air. It hence collides with the obstacles with razor sharp speed.
The Black one: it’s a bomb! No less, no more. It just reaches the target, while acting like the red bird then after it stops rolling, it bursts after a couple of seconds delay.
The White one: This bird when tapped drops an egg which acts as the force provider, the better the projectile, the more the force.
The game has 4 levels which act like a continuous story line. The names of the levels are “Poached Eggs”; “Mighty Hoax”; “Danger Above” and “The Pig Setup”. Advance in the story line, break castles, kill pigs and receive retribution. Additionally, Rovio Inc has been kind enough to add an extra ‘fun’ level called “The Golden Eggs”. All in all, a fun filled game that makes a test of your knowledge of game dynamics while testing your patience in many instances. It also puts to test, your physics as you attempt to get the correct projectile that will win you the game. What’s more, there is a scoring system. The more the score, the more the stars you receive. Besides, each bird that is remaining on your side of the field after you are done killing the pigs gets you 10000 more points. Classy, huh?
All in all, this is an exemplary work by Rovio Inc, made essentially for iPhone, which then was replicated in Android and Symbian operating systems due to their rising and overwhelming popularity. The birds get angrier later in their next instalments Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio.
