The description of Angry Birds 2

One of the first mobile gaming hits, Angry Birds in 2009 gave start to the whole series of crossovers and add-ons, but the real sequel with reworked gameplay followed in 2015. Still based on birds-versus-pigs confrontation and slingshot mechanics, this game has a lot of innovations to its players.

Narrative 8/10

The story of pigs stealing the eggs and the birds trying to get them back is as ridiculous as can be; yet no game has even been retarded by a healthy dose of absurd. Still, we see the green pigs as a breed of engineers, building houses and castles, and the birds shooting each other from a slingshot to smash the pigs’ defense down. That’s the basis; but over it, there’s a lot reworked.

First of all, the card system is implied in the sequel. Now you select the cards with the birds you want to use before each new level, as you unlock more than three of them. Spells are here to assist you with harder levels. Success brings you fevers you need to collect in order to upgrade your birds. Oh, the slingshot is upgradable too now.

To unlock a new card with a new bird or a new spell, you need to fill the destruct-o-meter on your screen by smashing pig castles effectively. The more destruction you bring, the faster it will be filled.

The game also utilizes energy system; if you lose a life, you can restore it by waiting for 30 minutes, by watching an ad or by purchasing it for gems. So if you don’t want to pay, just wait for 150 minutes for your lives to refill.

Visuals 10/10

Still strictly 2D, the game now features more spectacular destruction, more elaborate backgrounds, and more beautiful animation. The key characters look almost the same, being already cult objects. But the rest is remade completely, from levels transition to the game map. The game looks great on both budget low-resolution devices and newest 2K tablets and smartphones.

The response is fast, there’s nothing to say. The game doesn’t heat up devices and doesn’t require top performance, because of the modest graphical part. And still, its physics is great for a 2D game. So all we loved about the first installment is still here.

General Impressions 9/10

Not as revolutionary as the first installment, Angry Birds 2 feels like return to a familiar hood you haven’t seen for several years, with some new buildings and boards surrounded by the same backgrounds and inhabited by the same people. Familiar and kind of new, Angry Birds 2 reveals its difference only after playing for an hour or more.

The same controls, the same attempts to get the maximum score at harder levels, the same looking birds bring quite a different feeling. Now it’s no revelation; it’s just another game, but based on what has once been a touchscreen miracle.

Great

It’s a decent sequel to the cult game. The developers did the hardest work of not spoiling what we love. The birds and the pigs are still here, and all the innovations are drawn upon the same firm base. This time it’s free, though full of in-game purchases. So it’s a good option to have some cult classics on your device.
