While there's no story and the gameplay can be somewhat short, the incredibly accessible play and the tons of user-made created content is lots of fun to explore. Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs assumes that you, like virtually everyone else on the planet, understands the plot of the franchise. So it completely ignores including a story, and instead tosses you directly into the action. That's fine, because it's simple to use your left hand to aim your slingshot and your right hand to launch birds at your targets. You'll be hurling the birds in seconds, hopping from virtual perch to perch as you bring pig houses tumbling down. You do have to be a bit more cautious than the previous games in the series, because you only have three birds per stage, and they only have a limited number of abilities. But that makes it easier to focus on how to clear the stages that are presented, which aren't the hardest things to do.

In fact, you'll probably find yourself clearing your way through the four worlds of the initial game in about an hour and a half, or three hours to fully clear the spooky level versions. That might seem incredibly short and unimpressive, but that's actually okay as well, because the included level editor is where the majority of gameplay comes from. There's a very active community building levels and uploading them on a regular basis, giving players con constant amount of stages on a weekly level to test your aim and puzzle solving skills. It's also incredibly easy to create these stages, so you'll probably find that as you're rolling through submitted levels, you're getting ideas of how to create your own. It's not hard to find yourself playing multiple rounds of these submitted levels and finding that you've spent hours shattering platforms with your birds. The levels may be short, but they're surprisingly replayable, and for a VR title based on this popular franchise, Isle of Pigs feels like an enjoyable way to spend some virtual time.
