"Bird Flinging Fun"
Why fix something that isn’t broken? No need to alter an amazing game too much, just update and enhance it. After playing Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons, it’s easy to see why it isn’t necessary to completely reinvent the game. With the same bird-flinging action, and endless amounts of time passing by unnoticed, this game franchise is always good fun.
- The Rio theme has been incorporated, but the gameplay is unchanged -
With only a few changes made, this game is more clean and crisp than ever. The layout is slightly different but much more appealing. Rovio did a great job of capturing the look and flavor of Rio through the vibrant, puzzling levels. Everything is enhanced, including the graphics, sound, and even small details.
One of the biggest differences in this game from the other Angry Birds installments is that the bad guys aren’t pigs. When the game begins, the angry birds are captured and whisked away to Rio de Janeiro. But, these tough birds escape their captors before the game starts. They set out to save their friends, Blu and Jewel, who just so happen to be two rare macaws and stars of the hit movie by Dreamworks Animation, Rio.
The simple gameplay hasn’t changed and continues to be fun and easy for everyone. In the first episode, called smuggler’s den, the birds must avoid chains and lights hanging from the ceiling which can get in the way of victory if you’re not careful. In true Angry Birds fashion, they are flung across the screen to save their caged friends. After completing the warehouse levels, you set the two blue macaws free. A fun comic strip between each level explains what’s going on. In the second episode, the jungle, you must fend off expressive monkeys who will laugh at you if you lose. The final level is a boss battle with a cockatoo. It isn't so hard as to anger, but it is difficult enough to challenge.
- Monkey business Angry Birds style -
The game is full of hidden fruit, star ratings, and achievements, and it includes two episodes and sixty levels. As you progress, you get new birds, each equipped with their special features. New level packs aren’t released until May, July, October, and November.
The only negative thing I can say about this game is that it is extremely addictive, and it will drain your battery! Regardless, if you’re a fan of the other installments, or even a newcomer, this game is one you should absolutely pick up. Find out what happens when everyone’s favorite birds are shipped to Rio. For just a few bucks, Angry Birds Rio will bring you hours of fun.
