This is a physics game that will need you to think about your direction, power and strength of each and every fling of our heroes and with each Angry Bird possessing their own special ability, you will have to think wisely! Great examples of the abilities that you will have to your disposal is the fact that blue Angry Birds can split into three to inflict maximum damage, black Angry Birds have explosive power, literally, and white Angry Birds possesses the skill to drop explosive eggs where needed!
