What's it about?

Like other match-3 puzzle games, ANGRY BIRDS MATCH doesn't have a story. Instead, you're just trying to line up three or more of the same icons in a row. Though like all Angry Birds games, this has a persistent pro-bird, anti-pig bias.

Is it any good?

Though it's far removed from the original game, this match-3 puzzle spin-off still manages to be fun whether you're a bird lover or militantly pro-pig. At its core, Angry Birds Match is a fairly typical match-3 puzzle game. You have to move different pieces one space so that there are three or more of them in a row, which causes all of them to disappear. Also, if you match four or more in a row, you get a power-up. The difference being that here, those power-ups are annoyed avians who, depending on how many pieces you match, can be sent running in different directions, or multiple ones, taking out everything in their path. That includes (and this is important) any pigs who are just standing around doing nothing. Otherwise, though, this is a fairly straightforward match-3 puzzle game, with everything that kind of gameplay implies. It gets increasingly clever, and difficult, and will give you hours of problem-solving fun before you get bored or so supremely stuck that you quit in a huff. Which means you'll still be playing Angry Birds Match in six months when Rovio releases yet another spin-off with those foul-tempered fowl.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about animal cruelty. In this game, our feathered friends knock the pigs off the board, but do you think the pigs enjoy this? Does this make you want to be nicer to pigs?

  • Talk about eating right. In some of the levels, you have to match cakes and donuts, but does the game make you hungry? Why do you think that is?

  • Discuss money management. While you can spend money on this game to keep playing, you can also just wait, so does it make sense to spend a lot of money on a game like this?
