Angry birds started with a few sketches of wingless birds. The company at that time were doing their usual brainstorming of possible games that will be popular to the market.

Playing Angry Birds For Beginners

So the first question, why are the birds angry at the birds? The simple answer is that they've stolen their eggs. So these birds are now on a mission to kill all these pigs.

So basically, the object of the game is to destroy the pigs structures and kill the pigs.


There is a slingshot/catapult that hurls the birds towards the pigs' structure. Sounds very easy, doesn't it? But all the different birds have different powers and in playing the game, you need to be aware of these powers so you can use it to your advantage.


Each bird can destroy and kill in different ways. There's a lot of physics involved in it which is probably where the whole addiction to the game starts from. It's the fact that it looks deceptively easy but once you start it, you realize that it actually challenges you as well.

The Angry Birds Community

With millions of fans worldwide, you can only expect that there are lots of fans who regularly share tips and ideas on how best to play Angry birds.
