Day 168/365: Angry Birds vs Swine Flu!

June 17, 2011

My night time routine while waiting for my daughter to sleep, as she listens to the angry birds sounds. Really a cool addicting game, and looking forward to watch an “Angry Birds Movie” soon!

Types of Birds:

Red Bird

Red Bird is the most basic type of Angry Birds, a kind of plain old projectile birds. Generally, you can unlock the Red Bird from beginning. It breaks easily through glass, but it stopped by thicker construction materials.

Blue Bird

The Blue Bird will be unlocked from World 1, Level 10. This scattershot bird possesses a super-fast replicative cycle that splits into three small projectiles when the screen is tapped. These Blue Birds are especially good at breaking the glass planks.

Yellow Bird

Unlocked from World 1, Level 16, the dreaded triangular Yellow Bird truly specializes in long distances with super speeds when the screen is tapped. The Yellow Bird also can rip through wood like its wet paper, allowing players to quickly attack enemies buried deep within a structure. But it won’t do much damage on materials like stone and glass.

Black Bird

Unlocked from World 2, Level 5, Black Bird is the heaviest birds in the game, and can be used to topple structures even destroy a large chunk of stone in just one hit, in addition to the explosion it generates once settling. Launch the bird at a super steep angle and allow it to bust to the bottom of large structures for massive damage.

White Bird

There are two different ways to use the most prolific White Bird, unlocked fromWorld 2, Level 14. First, it can drop a large explosive egg when players tap the screen, but the original bird still flies forward. These eggs also can be dropped as projectile weapons on unfortuante targets as well!

Boomerang Bird

Unlocked fromWorld 6, Level 5, the Boomerang Bird can turn around and fly backwards at roughly double the speed when the screen is tapped, and deal intense damage. Keep in mind that, however, once the Boomerang Bird has touched a structure it can no longer activate its boomerang function.

Big Brother Bird

Unlocked fromWorld 9, Level 1, the Big Brother Bird is the game’s final poultry-type, offering up enormous power. This bird can eat its vitamins, and has the destructive power of the black bomb bird, just without the explosive finale.

The Opponent:

The radical swine (pig) inspired by the Swine Flu Epidemic when it was being developed and the color “green” means sickly pig.

Day 167/365: Angry Birds vs Swine

My conclusion:

It seems the game was really inspired to fight the pandemic flu! Birds Flu, Swine Flu and even the Angry Birds Rio – Monkey- Kawasaki disease and even AIDS.
