Angry Birds is an addictive bird-flinging casual game for S40 phones, which has proved to be one of the most popular mobile games of all time.
Your mission in this raucous game is to destroy all the green pigs by catapulting birds at them. This wouldn't be too difficult, except for the fact the hogs are holed up inside fortified castles which you need to smash into in order to enter. As the levels progress, these fortresses become ever more hard to break down, so Angry Birds requires a bit of lateral thinking as well as a steady aim.
To fire a bird you simply pull back on the catapult, adjust the trajectory, then release your finger. You can shoot several birds per turn, and if you don't destroy every pig then you'll have to start the level again. There are dozens of levels, so it'll be a long time before you get bored of Angry Birds.
As well as being great fun to play, Angry Birds looks the part too. Graphics are colorful and fun, and the bird noises and sound effects are hilarious.
As you'd expect this Series 40 version of Angry Birds isn't as polished as the
One of the few criticisms we have of Angry Birds is that it's very repetitive. It would be nice if there were an option to customize levels or characters, for example.
If you feel like playing the game on a larger screen, why not download Angry Birds for PC and play it in Windows?
Overall though, Angry Birds is enjoyable enough to put a smile on the face of even the most sullen Series 40 gamer.
