Clickgamer's Angry Birds [99¢ / Free] has been one of my favorite games since it was first launched in December of last year. We thought the game was great in our review, and since then, Angry Birds has only gotten better with the surprising amount of extra content that has been added to the game via updates.

Angry Birds is a game that could easily be described with any number of cliches such as "easy to play, difficult to master", "polished", "addictive", and others. When it comes down to it, what makes Angry Birds great is how incredibly accessible the game is to everyone, even non-gamers. Gameplay amounts to a number of different birds, each with different abilities, loading themselves in to a slingshot. You then use a single finger to fling them at a fort filled with smug, smiling pigs.

There isn't really any quick reaction elements to the game, or really anything that requires more than just intelligently analyzing the weaknesses in the pigs' fortresses and aiming at them with your birds. Levels are scored and stars are awarded based on performance. Completionists can shoot for three stars, perfecting every level, and gamers just looking to have fun can generally clear levels with one star without too much trouble.

A previous update added Chillingo's Crystal for all kinds of online scoring, achievements, and all that fun stuff along with 40 new levels. The last update added a new bird and 15 additional levels. This update adds another 15 levels and a new level theme. The amount of content in Angry Birds when it first launched was more than enough, but after all these updates, you really need to pick this game up if you haven't already.

    Please correct the title. It is ''angrier'' and not ''more angry''. It makes this site look like a joke and you guys are professionals.

    • Adams Immersive

      I think it’s just a pun, meant to use the word from the title.

      I’m buying this now when I previously had no interest. Crush the Castle sold me on the genre :)

      • Adams Immersive

        Oops—I see it has a separate HD version. My current policy for non-Universal apps is to wait until I get an iPad. (And then I’ll never leave my couch.) Still, I will buy it in the end!

      You stupid shit. Adjectives with 2 syllables and "Y" take -er in comparative form.

      Happier. Messier, Smellier ..... But other words with 2 sylabels like "stupid" take 'more' For example; you are more stupid than you think.

      You are a d**k! I bet you are American. There si nothing wrong with saying "more angry". You Air are the joke, not this website.

    can you write more concisely please?

    there is only one sentence in the entire article that is useful and it is in the last paragraph:

    "This update adds another 15 levels and a new level theme."

  • guy

    either angrier or more angry are correct, it's just a matter of preference that they chose the latter.

    • Mikey

      Either angrier or more angry IS correct. "Either" uses the singular, not the plural.

      You enjoy being corrected, right?

    Did the devs forget they have an iPad version? There's been two content updates for the iphone version and none for the iPad yet it's 5x the price. What gives?

    • Cory

      Yea, I feel pretty stupid for paying for the HD version instead of the iPhone version, when it cost 5x more and doesn't seem to be getting updates. I was fine paying for the graphic update, but I assumed at the very least the more expensive version would have the same amount of content as the cheaper version.

      • DaverJ

        +1... Maybe someday?

    These angry birds frighten me. They are like Japanese Kamikaze pilots of WWII, or islamic terrorists who blow themselves up or fly planes into buildings.

    I know that the pigs should not have made themselves an omelet without paying for breakfast, but still...Imagine if chickens behaved in this enraged manner every time somebody bought a dozen eggs at the supermarket.....

    • Machnolee

      Indeed.

    I can't get the new levels to load. Is there something I need to do besides upgrade?

    • HI

      Same here, why won't the new levels load I have downloaded update

      • Amanda

        I had to power cycle mine a few times in order for the new levels to show up. Its also set up a little different than before.

        I didn't make it too far! Can't seem to get past 7-3 though.

    Can you boycott lame videos that show nothing of actual gameplay? They just waste my time and get me angry at the devs for taking me for a fool.

    • rich_952000

      It's not Rovio's fault, it is the gentleman who wrote the article who chose that particular video. The video is one Rovio made as an added bonus of sorts to access direct from the game. There are plenty of gameplay videos out there, simply type "Angry Birds" into a search on YouTube.
