After dominating the Apple App Store charts and amassing millions of downloads, Angry Birds has finally arrived on Android. The beta build of the Lite version has just been released, and should become available in all Android Markets by the end of the day.
Angry Birds is a puzzle game from Rovio, which has sold more than 6.5 million copies and might be made into a movie. Like most brilliant games, the objective of Angry Birds is simple – in each level you are supplied with some angry birds that have had their eggs stolen by evil pigs. There are five different kinds of birds, each with its own traits. You have to launch the birds at an appropriate angle using a catapult to eliminate the pigs.
Techie Buzz Verdict
Angry Birds is an incredibly addictive game. It simply grabs you by the collar and pulls you in. Once you get hooked, you will find yourself wasting hours trying to destroy the evil little pigs and their castles. While dumb luck might get you through a few levels, you will need to employ solid logic and planning to master the game.
Angry Bird Lite for Android is currently in beta. I experienced occasional crashes while launching the game. However, in general the game worked well. There were no unexpected frame rate drops or other hitches during the gameplay. Go ahead and download it from the market right now. This game is a winner.
