Angry Birds 2

Did you see this video? Where they made a real life angry Birds? It’s hilarious. They build a huge set that looks exactly in the game out of some styrofoam. It really looked like the real thing, and was freakishly big. Once they were done building it they let real players play against each other. It was fun to watch. Real life Angry Birds. Like Takeshi’s Castle. I would have loved to be one of the contestants.


Angry Birds has been one of my favorite mobile games for years, so when I found out that Rovio was coming out with a sequel to the infamous slingshot adventure, I knew I had to download Angry Birds 2.

Rovio has outdone themselves by including some fairly impressive additions to the sequel of their famous Angry Birds game. There are fun new backgrounds and themes in each level, and plenty of new surprises to be found as you progress through the game.

Stick around and I'll tell you all about the newness that has been added to the game and why you need to download Angry Birds 2 on your phone or tablet.


New Birds

The addition of new birds was enough to sell me on the game, even though you don't have to pay a dime to download the title. I couldn't help but laugh when I saw the giant version of Red that seems to lazily roll into the little pigs who try to hide in their minor defenses.

One of my favorite new birds, however, is the tiny pink bird that blows bubblegum bubbles that lift and separate pig structures to weaken the defenses of the enemy.

There are several new birds in the game and each one comes with its own character dialogue and development, so you can really get to know the creatures. Each bird will, of course, have their own unique talents as well, but you'll have to play Angry Birds 2 to find out more.


Level Up

One feature I can't believe wasn't included in the classic version of Angry Birds is the ability to level up the birds. The more you progress through the game, the higher the level each of your birds will become. The stronger the birds become, the more easily they will be able to take down the structures built by the pigs.

I love that Rovio gave players the ability to level up the birds in the game. I truly feel that it adds another factor of playability to an already extensively replayable title. It seems that the more time Rovio puts into the franchise the more successful each title becomes.


Believe You Can Fly!

Ok, so let's be honest with each other; it's weird that these birds can't just fly over to the pigs, right? Well, the developers at Rovio have come up with a way for you to soar through the sky with your favorite birds, by including mini-games that strap jetpacks on to fly around and collect coins. However, be careful that you don't hit any of the walls or obstacles or you'll start plummeting out of the sky!

Having these little mini-games to break up the gameplay, not only gives the game another element of gameplay but it also helps to break up the monotony of aiming and firing the birds over and over.

If you're anything like me, then I'm sure you've had those moments when you've failed a level so many times that you nearly chuck your phone against the wall. Having these little breaks makes sure that players don't get too frustrated with the game when the going gets tough!


Overall, I would say that I enjoy Angry Birds 2 even more than I did the classic version of the game. If I had to find a complaint about the title it might be the pressure Rovio seems to press on players to spend money on gems by constantly advertising flash sales. Although without microtransactions, we might have to pay to play Angry Birds 2, so I suppose I appreciate those players who choose to spend the cash on the game!
