Last week, I started playing the game Angry Birds by Rovio Mobile Ltd. I wanted to know why a lot of people are crazy about it.
The mechanics are quite simple, free the birds on the right side using placing the birds on the left on the slingshot. Drag the mouse to aim and bham! Check if your bird broke any cages or what have yous because your score depends on that and aim for the other birds.
It's a cute game actually.
When I was starting to play, I enjoyed the wishi-hhaaha-wakak--heeeheeee sounds that those birds make. But as I went thru the more difficult changes, I started to appreciate the thinking process involved just to clear a stage. It's not just a cute game of throwing birds into air but it is a puzzle!
Sometimes, I get frustrated with the stages because I know they are so difficult to complete and sometimes I would wish I would have twenty birds to shoot/throw to break all the stones/wood and ice just so I could clear the stage and get a new high score.
Anyway, I'm now on Level 16 of the Might Hoax Stage (PC version) and I'd have to end this blog so I could get back to work so that by lunch time, I would have spare time for my angry birds.
