  • It was about time for a perspective change for Angry Birds and I strictly mean the camera angle here. Angry Birds Action brings that over the top view, but it also changes the game into a glorified pinball title. It’s available for free in the Play Store and can be seen as the tie in game with the Angry Birds Movie.

    We played it on the Gionee Marathon M5 Plus and had a bit of fun, when the energy/lives didn’t run out, like in any typical freemium title. Launched this spring, after spending quite a few months in soft launch, this game lets you pull back the birds and shoot them towards a ton of destructible objects, in an attempt to get candy or eggs.

    There are ricoches, rubbery objects to hit and then be projected into something else and TNT to blast. There’s a variety of birds, like Terrence, Chuck, Red and the whole gang and each of them is available in a limited number of units, so you can run out. 3D graphics are pretty good looking and both the level design and destructible objects look nice.

    I also noticed there’s a lot going on on the screen: wind is blowing, fans are blowing things away, objects are dropping from planes and things are always in motion. Powerups are also included, like one that makes everything turn to ice, the ability to go through walls and making the bird more bouncy. In the end it’s a pinball title first and foremost, that’s both addictive and repetitive in the end.

    You can ask friends for energy and this aspect may limit your play a bit, especially since some levels are hard and you’ll run out of lives fast. We give this game a 7.8 out of 10, simply because it can’t escape the fact it feels like a pinball clone.
