Augmented reality meets one of mobile gaming's biggest franchises -- and it's a near perfect match. Angry Birds might not be as rabidly popular as it once was, but by folding in augmented reality and new gameplay hooks, Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs could launch a resurgence in popularity. The gameplay that's so familiar is tweaked by the ability to move around the pigs' structure and look for angles to aim at, causing a chain of destructive events. And often, you have to move in close to find things like hidden boxes of TNT that can result in higher scores.

That new gameplay style isn't as easy to learn as the original game, though, which might frustrate some players. There's a lot more trial and error this time, and earning three stars on levels is a lot harder. (That's notable, as those stars -- which are now coins -- need to be redeemed to advance to later levels.) Players may also experience more eyestrain than in a typical game of Angry Birds, since they're staring at the screen more intensely than before when targeting strikes. That likely won't prove too much of a dissuasion for many people, though, because Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs is still very entertaining, and will amuse players for quite some time.
