Review for: Angry Birds Rio on PC
'Angry Birds Rio' Review - An Unexpectedly Fantastic 'Angry Birds' Pseudo-Sequel
I'll be the first to admit that when I first caught wind of Angry Birds Rio I didn't expect much. Video games based on movies are almost always universally terrible, and this seemed like a prime situation for Rovio do to a quick cash-in on Rio, with hype around the movie and Angry Birds in general making the game sell well anyway. Oddly enough, Angry Birds Rio is anything but a quick cash-in.
At this point I'd think it's safe to assume that anyone reading TouchArcade is familiar with Angry Birds, but if not, here's the gist- Angry Birds is a catapult game where you fling birds at forts which are cobbled together with various materials, all precariously stacked. Levels are complete when you fling the birds in to these forts to kill all the pigs. It's graded on a three star scale with hidden golden eggs which can also be collected.
Instead of killing pigs, you've got to break fellow birds free from cages in the first world. Then in the second world you're defeating monkeys. The 60th level has a boss fight of sorts where you've got to fling birds at Nigel, the bad guy of the movie. You even get to fling Blu and Jewel, the two main character birds of Rio. It's all really well done, and any fans of Angry Birds will have a fantastic time playing through Angry Birds Rio.
