Angry Birds has finally come to Android phones. The popular iApp can now be downloaded via the Market for free (with ad support). An ad free version is planned for some point in the future.
So is it worth all the hype?
The pigs have stolen the birds' eggs and they're angry. How angry? Angry enough to set up a giant slingshot and hurl themselves at the pigs. The pigs for their part are smart enough to set up some walls made of various items (glass, wood, rock, TNT, etc.).
So the game is basically pulling back, getting the right angle for your bird in the slingshot and let it fly into a wall or pig. The goal is to take out all the pigs on that level, oh and there are 120 levels.
There are five different birds that you'll be using. Normal: Just aim and shoot. Splitter: Aim, shoot and at a certain point hit the screen to make it split into three birds. Bomb: Aim, shoot and it'll explode. Egg dropper: Aim, shoot and when you hit the screen it'll drop an egg for extra damage. Bird boost: Aim, shoot and when you touch the screen again it'll get a short boost to make it fly farther.
That's it in a nutshell. The game is well done and fun to play, nothing too addicting but challenging enough to have you coming back. The free ad support isn't intrusive to the game so I can recommend you get it. Once they release the ad free version there will have to be more than no ads to make me purchase. We'll see. Till then I'm stuck on a level right now... grrr... stupid pigs.
