Not like the previous games
Angry Birds Casual is one of many games from the series that involves flinging different birds with their own unique abilities at destructible structures in an attempt to free all the caged chicks.
No more pigs
Angry Birds Casual is another game in the famous series about slingshotting birds into collapsible structures.
The Angry Birds series involves launching birds to topple towers made from stone, wood, and glass. In the past, these structures have had green pigs placed on them. However, the developers have changed that to have cages of birds that need to fall to break free.
The graphics from this game are cuter than the standard ones used in previous titles from the series. This change is reflective in the move to remove the classic green pigs as enemies and replace them with birds in need of being released.
The game still feels natural as you pull the slingshot back to aim it. However, there is a major difference with the bird’s abilities as you can no longer decide when to trigger them. The special abilities will activate automatically during their flight, taking away a fun aspect of the game.
There are hundreds of levels for you to play, but unlike in previous games, you will not be able to visit these levels after completing them. In the original games, you could complete a level to attempt to earn all three stars. This game has no stars and no repeatability.
As you level up by completing levels, you’ll earn a handful of coins that can later purchase extra shots. However, this system feels unrewarding as you’ll need multiple levels for a single extra move.
Where can you run this program?
Angry Birds Casual is available on iOS 12.0 or later.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes. There is a wide selection of other games from the series such as Angry Birds 2 that have better gameplay and fair progression that will keep you playing even while you replay old levels.
Angry Birds Casual is not as great as other titles from the series but will provide plenty of entertainment for die-hard fans and players looking to spend money on the game.
