Game: Angry Birds

Like a combination of PSN title Pain and, erm, some cartoon avians comes Angry Birds - a game that sees you flinging feathered maniacs at their egg-stealing, pig enemies.

It's a simple, yet addictive, formula of pulling a slingshot back and launching a bird into the swine's fortress. And as it's all physics-based, one carefully placed shot can set off a chain-reaction of piggy-death. 

The challenges become even more taxing as you're given birds with unique destructive capabilities, which ensures a varied experience throughout.

Speed birds accelerate when you tap the screen and can smash through wood with ease. Bomb birds explode and shatter structures made of stone and pretty much anything else. And there's even a little tweeter than can split itself into three to wreak havoc on a triple-threat basis amongst loads more. 

Angry Birds is a superb little game and will provide you with hours of fun. One of iPhone's best games, by far.

    I played this game for about 3 days straight, it's really hard but even more addicting.

    Looks fun for on the fly gaming. For a buck I may have to pick it up.

    I thought about this, but never really looked at it... until now. Keep this up, GR!

    I've no reason to comment except for my recaptcha, which, rather aptly, is "it swoops".
