Angry Birds is a game that challenges you to throw different birds against forts and structures made by little pigs. The objective is to take down all the pigs and cause as much destruction as possible in the process.
You can throw the birds as if you were using a catapult. In fact, the gameplay is reminiscent of an older genre in which you had to break down castles with stones. (Yes, it did exist before Angry Birds.) You'll have to aim well, calculating the strength of the shot and then releasing the bird. With some help from gravity, it will fall down on the structure and take down some of the enemy pigs.
In Angry Birds, you have different types of birds to throw. The classic red one doesn't have anything special, but the blackbird will explode, the green bird can come back like a boomerang, among many others.
Angry Birds offers hundreds of different levels in which you have to use your brain and skills. The scoring is based on a three-star system that keeps you wanting to play the same levels until you get all three stars.
Angry Birds is a simple game, and it is fun and has lots of charm. It's no surprise that it began one of the most important video game sagas for smartphones. It has a gameplay that is perfectly suited for short and quick games.
