Angry Birds is a puzzle video game developed by Rovio Mobile from Finland. In the game there are wingless birds. The player uses a slingshot to launch them at pigs that are on or in different structures. The player has to destroy all the pigs in the map to unlock another level. A spin off game, in which you play as the pigs, was also released called Bad Piggies.

Game[change | edit source]

There are several kinds of wingless birds and green pigs in Angry Birds:

There are pigs with and without helmets, small and big pigs, pigs with and without moustaches, and the pig’s king. They are all green.

Rovio Mobile has supported their games with many free updates that add more features and levels. There are 7 themed groups of levels. Every group has a simple story, the pigs stole the birds’ eggs so they try to get them back.The birds eventually get the eggs back in every part.

Characters[change | edit source]

Types of Birds:

  • Red Bird - Does nothing but does make various battle cries when tapped and does great at popping pigs.
  • Blue Bird - Splits into three smaller birds. Works best against glass.
  • Yellow Bird - Picks up speed and distance when tapped. Best against wood.
  • Black Bird - Explodes when tapped or shortly upon inpact. Best against stone.
  • White Bird - Drops an egg bomb that explodes on impact when tapped and does great on wood.
  • Boomerang Bird - Comes back like a boomerang when tapped and does great on wood and glass.
  • Big Brother Bird - No special abilities when tapped, but destroys materials with ease.
  • Orange Bird - Inflates to huge size like a balloon when tapped or upon impact, then deflates a little later. Best against wood.
  • Pink Bird (Appearing only in Angry Birds Seasons at the time) - When tapped makes a bubble around her, and lifts up objects like blocks and pigs. The bubbles last for about 3 seconds.
  • Mighty Eagle - You first launch sardines and when it hits the ground, the Mighty Eagle will come down, destroy everything in his path hit the ground and cause an earthquake, popping all pigs he missed, then come back up, while also destroying everything in his path; kind of like a V but wider. He must be purchased in-game for 99 cents to use him. He has unlimited use, except for Angry Birds Friends.

  • King Pig
  • Moustache Pigs
  • Helmet Pig
  • Large Pig
  • Medium Pig
  • Small Pig

Versions[change | edit source]

The first version of this game was released in December 2009 for Apple’s mobile operating system iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch). That release was a huge success so they decided to make versions for other mobile platforms (Maemo, webOS, Android, Symbian, Series 40 and Windows Phone). They also made versions even for computer operating systems (Mac OS, Windows) and gaming consoles (PlayStation, Xbox 360). There is also a version for Google’s social network Google Plus.

Because so many people liked this game, Rovio Mobile released special editions of Angry Birds called Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Magic. The special versions are basically the same game with some differences. In Angry Birds Seasons there are levels inspired by holidays or seasons. Angry Birds Rio is set in Rio de Janeiro and instead of pigs and wingless birds there are monkeys and birds from the movie Rio. Angry Birds Magic is just a special edition for Nokia and for more levels you have to use NFC.
