Angry Birds Rio
It's name is Rio and it throws birds in the wind
Angry Birds Rio Review
by on April 7, 2011
Angry Birds has been something of a milestone around the neck of games developers everywhere. While its makers Rovio are at this moment diving into vats of gold Scrooge McDuck style, other games companies are looking at the success and scratching their heads, confused about how to emulate such riches.
But the formula is pretty simple: create an addictive game, update it for free and repeat steps one and two.
Angry Birds Rio is the latest instalment of the franchise and nothing has changed in terms of playability. It’s not a sequel as such to Angry Birds but a spin-off to celebrate the animated film Rio,
Regardless of its pedigree, it is still a cracking game – using simple physics and achingly cute graphics to entice gamers of all ages in.
Interestingly, pigs don’t make an appearance in this game. Swine murdering has been replaced by the much nicer idea of sending birds through the air to release other birds from their cages.
There’s loads of collectible items (pineapples) to get through the levels and there is also much replay to be had in the whole ‘let’s get three stars before I tear my eyes out’ fun.
It may not reach the 100 million downloads that its predecessor did but for a free game – yes you do have to deal with those pesky ads – that comprises 60 levels it’s a must-have.
