Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Bird & Beans is an entertaining casual game best enjoyed in short spurts. The controls are very simple to pick up. The four-way directional pad moves Pyoro, while a button shoots out his tongue. Since the overall goal is reaching the highest score possible, there's always incentive to come back and top your previous endeavours. Keep in mind this is not a game meant for long hours of play. Bird & Beans can grow a bit tiresome after about 20 to 30 minutes. However, at $2, it's an incredible value.
