(AFK Article) Mini Game Review – Angry Birds Halloween

I know you do it, don’t worry, I do it too.

There is something so appealing about taking a multi colored bird, putting them on a slingshot, and firing them on unsuspecting green piggies with chaotic results.

And just when you think you nailed every pig up to the boss hog, scored three stars on every stage, and captured all the elusive golden eggs, Rovio releases the latest chapter in the on going struggle of pork v poultry – Angry Birds Halloween.

Now granted I don’t know if this is an official sequel but really I don’t care – it a new Angry Birds game!

All the gang is back but now in a spooky, cartoony, Halloween-like setting.

The birds maybe angry but smart… Well, they got fooled by a pig in a blanket (seriously – he was dressed as a ghost) and made off with their eggs again. Once they realized they’ve been had it doesn’t take them long to set up the sling and let loose the birds of war!

Everything from the first game makes a return in this game: from the birds with their own special abilities such and multiplication and self-detonation to those greedy pigs with their quasi cleaver defenses next to TNT crates and very steep ledges. However this time around the pigs employed pumpkins, bell towers, and costumes to keep the eggs all to themselves. While these new tricks will put players to the test, they also give them new opportunities for high scores. Each pumpkin destroyed offer a plethora of points (depending on the size of the pumpkins themselves), the bell towers too plus they themselves are very good crushing implements. Timing, distance, and luck applies to this game as it did the first; so expect even more of your time destroyed, family shunned, and arthritis acting up.

Well Rovio’s done it again! 45 bone quaking levels, more secret golden eggs to collect, even more comical chaos with the colorful cast (birds & pigs), and all under a buck yet again. This hot property is definitely going places: first the original, then Halloween, and since turkey month almost over (a missed opportunity) the next on should be ‘Christmas Ham’ Angry Birds, then ‘Birds in Space’, heck I can totally see a Bird, Pig, team up against the true threat – The EASTER BUNNY (he takes eggs and makes you eat ham)!!! Ok, maybe not; but still I said it once and I’ll say it again: if you want a simple and addicting game for your idevice, for a dollar, Angry Birds (Halloween) is your only choice.
