iPad App Review: Angry Birds HD

What’s so great about Angry Birds? How about “everything.” This is one of those games that will continue to nag at your sense of self-worth until you can beat a particular level — which may prove to be futile for some levels. Pick up this game and soon your dreams will be haunted by squawking birds, and the taunting grins of those green pigs that just will not die.

Things begin rather easily: You start with a few angry red birds that you sling at awaiting green pigs. The goal is to kill the pigs either by lampooning them with a bird dead-on, or craftily trying to topple bricks to crush them. In total, there are 105 different levels, each one more difficult than the last.

According to the blurb on the App Store listing, the eponymous angry birds are 'more malevolent than ever' in this HD outing. The game boasts optimised visuals and, of course, a larger playing area, which potentially takes care of the central issue we had with the original iPhone version - the randomness.

Available for $5 from Apple iTunes App Store
