There is a game for the iPad/iPod/Droid/etc. that is incredibly difficult at times, but I love it because of its humor, and the satisfaction I feel when I finally beat a level. That game? Angry Birds.
Yes, I'm late to the party, I know. However, when I started playing Angry Birds on the iPad and seasons for free on my Droid phone, well, I was straight-up addicted. This game is just seriously fun.
What is the point? Well, it seems some green pigs have stolen the eggs of various species of birds that have unique skills and the best way to remedy this injustice is for the birds to fling themselves at the pigs and their weakly-constructed barriers. Yeah, the plot doesn't make sense, but that isn't the point. No, the point is to have fun trying to beat the levels and then get a high score. It is utter madness but it is insanely fun.
This game is great and while difficult, enjoyable. Apparently it will soon by on Facebook too so that should be interesting for sure. I'd recommend getting a copy for whatever mobile device you have and giving at least the free version a shot--or if it is an Android phone, it seems to all be free--snazzy. Yes, these birds are angry, and they are also a hoot (no pun intended, as owls don't appear in the game). 4.5 out of 5 stars.
