I just recently got the game and it is addicting as, well, something very addicting. There's minor violence, as the birds blast through building materials to flatten pigs and when debris falls on them and they aren't flattened, they will have black eyes and such. There's also a powerup that literally crushes them, but there's no blood or anything. There are in-app purchases and ads galore too. Overall, the game is about trial and error. It's pretty easy to play because all you really have to do is pull back and fire. There are some minor tapping like with the yellow bird, which goes forward when you tap it, but other than that it's simple. I recommend this game to anyone 6 and up, but parents: it will be hard to pull them away from their screens.
