Angry Birds is a puzzle video game developed by Rovio, a developer based in Finland. Since its release for Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch devices, over 6.5 million copies of the game have been purchased, and versions have appeared for other touchscreen-based smartphones.

In Angry Birds, players take control of a flock of birds that are attempting to retrieve eggs that have been stolen by a group of evil pigs. The pigs have taken refuge on or within structures made of various materials, including wood, glass and stone, and the object of the game is to eliminate all the pigs in the level.

Using a slingshot, players launch the birds at the structure, with the intent of either hitting the pigs directly or damaging the structure, which would cause it to collapse onto the pigs. If all of the pigs are defeated by the time the last bird is used, the level is completed and the next level is unlocked. Players may re-attempt levels as many times as they wish, and may also replay completed levels in an attempt to boost their score.edit your birds pigs and levels

From the creators of Angry Birds, Bad Piggies is a puzzle game from the PIGS’ point of view!

The Bad Piggies have finally found a map to the eggs, but now it’s in pieces all over Piggy Island! But that won’t stop the King Pig, who orders his loyal minions to recover the map wherever it is, even from the top of a mountain or the bottom of a cave!

Those tricky pigs have a few objects they can use - umbrellas, wings, bottle rockets, balloons, engines, and much more - but they need your help to turn it into the perfect transportation! Can you create the ultimate flying machine and steer them safely to their destination?

With more than 60 levels and free updates, you have hours of pig-crashing, exploding, and flying fun! Get three stars on every level to unlock 30 more puzzles!

And if you want to stretch your creativity, there are 4 sandbox levels, where you can design more crazy rolling and flying contraptions!
