As with similar puzzle games, this tap-to-match game manages to remain addictive and fun while becoming progressively more challenging. Whereas previous Angry Birds games had you testing your skills as a "physics-ian," Angry Birds Blast is a deceptively simple tap-to-match game where you have to tap a tile that's next to another tile of the same color -- except it's never that simple, is it? Later on, you have to deal with glass and wood structures, as well as other impediments, that need to be broken so you can get at those annoying pigs. On the flip side, tapping a tile next to a bunch of the same color will unlock such boosts as a rocket ship that takes out everything in its path. But while this may seem simple enough, this game gets progressively more clever and challenging, though never to the point of frustration. It's just too bad this also has so many advertisements and links to other games, which makes this seem rather money-grubby. If you can look past the blatant commercialism, though, you'll find that Angry Birds Blast is as fun and addictive as, well, every other Angry Birds game.
