After conquering the charts in both the Android and iPhone app stores, Angry Birds has now landed on the Symbian plartform.
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 impenetrable, 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 four birds per turn, and if you don't destroy every pig then you'll have to start the level again. There are just six levels to play in this free version of Angry Birds, but you'll find more than 100 levels across three worlds, in the full game.
As well as being great fun to play, Angry Birds looks the part too. Graphics are colorful and fun on Angry Birds, and the bird noises and sound effects are hilarious.
One of the few criticisms we have of Angry Birds is that it gets a bit too repetitive. It would be nice if you could create your own levels or characters, for example.
Overall though, Angry Birds Lite is enjoyable enough to put a smile on the face of even the most sullen mobile gamer.
