Editor's Review

Our testers loved the idea of a block-building game with the Angry Birds theme. Unfortuantely, they found the structures a little too fragile to build up easily, and the launchers weren't the greatest - which made the game frustratingly slow to play, especially compared to the APP. It was our youngest testers who enjoyed this game most, but they also faced the biggest frustrations with blocks that are tricky to stack and disappointing catapults. 

Tester Reviews

I love playing the angry birds game, its the same as mommys tab. Its hard to knock over the pigs, but you have to keep trying and then all the wood falls down, too. I build my own towers because its faster like that, but you have to do it carefully or they all fall down. I love the slingshot, sometimes I shoot the bird way too far. I want to play this game with my friends because i will beat them! Blaze (M5)

I like playing this game, but if I had a choice, I would choose the Ipod game, it's much faster. Sometimes we spend a lot of time making the structure and the other person doesn't even touch it, so we changed the rule and made it the first person who shoots the structure to gets the point.

Connor (7), Kierra (5) and Hailee (3) all enjoy playing with the Angry Birds game. The instructions are easy to follow, but initially, the kids found it difficult to get the aim right and had a hard time building the structures. After playing a few times they got the hang of building and hitting the structures. The kids all love playing with the birds, pigs and making structures without keeping score. Hailee especially loves to play games with the pigs and birds. I like how the kids can use their imagination and play this game individually with their own rules. This game was out in the family room for a while and the kids played often but the novelty has now worn off and there doesn't seem to be any interest. Jo McGillivray, Parent
