Angry Birds Fight claws its way to the Play Store
Complete with dramatic cut-scenes and bird vs pig mayhem, Angry Birds Fight is yet another chapter in Rovio’s seemingly never-ending Angry Birds saga. This time, Rovio took inspiration from games such as Candy Crush Saga, as well as RPGs and fighters, to create a unique gameplay style.
Angry Birds Fight has already been seen in the Asia Pacific region and has garnered over 3 million downloads. Now it has been released worldwide on Android and iOS, raking up over a million downloads on the Google Play Store.
As for how the game works? You are presented with your fighter bird, which is then matched up against another players’ bird. Next, you are shown the classic Candy Crush grid, except the candies are birds. You have 30 seconds to match as many bird trios as possible, and for every set you make, your bird gets buffed. For sets of four and five birds, there are also other cool powers. Once the time hits 0, the birds begin to duel, and you don’t have any further influence on how your bird does.
The winner is chosen when the other bird has no more health. If you have won the duel, then you may be presented with a variety of items, like a pencil or a hat, which you can equip to give your bird an extra boost in the next battle.
After playing Angry Birds Fight for a little while, part of me wanted to uninstall it because it seems like a cruel mashup of Candy Crush, an RPG, and a fighter game. Another part of me wanted to keep playing. It does need more work, but I feel it has the potential to not be terrible. Go ahead and give it a try, then let us know what your feelings are about the game down in the comments.
