There’s not much we can say about Angry Birds 2 without sounding too repetitive! We've extensively covered the release of Rovio's newest game. Nonetheless, we wanted to recommend the fun game as our Game of the Day. What better timing than to do so in the app’s release week. The sequel to the first Angry Birds installment is Rovio’s fifteenth game in the series. While I felt lukewarm about the title before it came out – simply because it was yet another game in the Angry Birds franchise – I was quite surprised at how much I liked it.
Angry Birds 2 follows the original title’s gameplay. Your colorful birds hop into the big slingshot, allowing you to shoot them across each map to destroy the Bad Piggies’ fortresses. Each bird has a different special ability. Red creates a small force field in front of him, Chuck can gain speed in mid-flight, and Matilda drops an egg-bomb on your opponents. This allows for a lot of tactical freedom, especially since you get to choose which bird will be shot when. Angry Birds 2 also features various spells that can be shot in the slingshot. These will summon blizzards or let rubber ducks rain down on the Piggies. It is recommendable to wreak a lot of havoc, as damage fills the Destruct-O-Meter which earns you an extra card once it is filled.
Overall, Angry Birds 2 is just a great casual game that is optimal for any situation. It’s casual enough to play on the go, but it’s challenging enough to never get boring! That is why the app had to be our Game of the Day.
