    Angry Birds didn't become one of the most popular titles in the App Store for nothing. It's a very simple, physics-based formula, but it's a lot deeper than one might think. Strategic, rich thanks to the different types of birds to throw, blocks to shatter, and pigs to destroy in the process, Angry Birds may puzzle your brain a lot more than expected at first if you want to get all three stars for each level. And its price is as low as ever for hundreds of levels of fun. A definitive must-have of the App Store and Android Market.

    With 105 levels to conquer, new types of bad guys later on, and a built-in trophy system, it's unlikely you'll want for variety.

    Angry Birds is a delight to play, watch, and listen to, and the endless replay potential for mastering the 60+ levels makes the introductory $1 selling price seem way too low when compared to similar titles, so act now and get this game while it's still half-price.

    I cannot think of a single thing you could buy for that money that would give you as much entertainment and sheer fun as this title.

    The best part of Angry Birds, however, isn't just that it's inexpensive and offers hours upon hours of fun and puzzle-solving - it's that the game is still being built, and that your $1 investment will continue to pay off as more and more levels become available.

    Title arguments aside, there's no doubt Rovio have created one of the best games in the App Store to date.

    Plump and ripe for roasting, Angry Birds is as addictive as any puzzler gets with light-hearted gameplay that flies with the best of the flock.

    Angry Birds is incredibly addicting, loaded with personality, and is a tremendous value.

    Kudos to everyone involved for making one of the best games on the iPhone. Now please give us more levels ASAP.

    Angry Birds successfully captures the spirit of Boom Blox using a 2D viewpoint, a compliment that should make this game an automatic purchase for many.

    Yes, I'd like to see some more content, but it's a good game nonetheless. If you like castle-destruction at all, be sure to give it a try.

    Destructive physics help make this a very charming puzzler, but we still feel there are areas for improvement.

    Angry Birds has a lot going for it, but is fundamentally flawed in execution.

    AB's main focus is to waste your time and it succeeds completely in fulfilling this need. I think that's why they went to the stock market. Angrybirds must be the most lame game in history. They are "the" only one in their category "strategic non-action" ...impressive! Full Review »

    Angry Birds is an unoriginal game, taking elements from Crush the Castle and more. Its poor execution hinders the fun. When the Screaming Eagle (or whatever it was, I don't have the app anymore) was released, I immediately was disappointed with Rovio. Making us pay 1 dollar for a cheat showed that Rovio was being a sellout. The hype around it is too much for the game's quality, and its ubiquity is fairly annoying. It doesn't live up to the expectations. Like other reviews have said, it is repetitive as you go on and has little replay value after a while, unlike other games on iOS. Full Review »

    Let's make a game about finding a specific pixel and shoot to win. Let's also dumb down crush the castle and make the gameplay slower, but let's also include some retarded birds. We'll make millions! Full Review »
