Angry Birds is a puzzle video game developed by Rovio Entertainment from Finland.

Premise[edit]

In the original game, there are wingless semi-anthropomorphic birds that the player uses a slingshot to launch them at quasi-anthropomorphic pigs that are on or in different structures. The player has to destroy all the pigs on the map to unlock another level. A spin-off game, in which you play as the pigs, was also released called Bad Piggies on September 27, 2012.[1]

Game[edit]

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 mustaches, 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 seven 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[edit]

Birds[edit]

The pigs
  • Red Bird - Does nothing but does make various battle cries when tapped and does great at popping pigs.
  • The Blues - Splits into three smaller birds. Works best against glass.
  • Chuck - Picks up speed and distance when tapped. Best against wood.
  • Bomb - Explodes when tapped or shortly upon impact. Best against stone.
  • Matilda - Drops an egg bomb that explodes on impact when tapped and does great on wood and stone.
  • Hal - Comes back like a boomerang when tapped and does great on wood and glass.
  • Terence - No special abilities when tapped, but destroys materials with ease.
  • Bubbles - Inflates to huge size like a balloon when tapped or upon impact, then deflates a little later. Best against wood.
  • Stella - (Appearing in Angry Birds Seasons in the Back to School Update.) - 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.
