Review – Angry Birds Blast on Android

Angry Birds Blast

Rovio are certainly keeping the Angry Birds license alive and active in the gaming world. We saw quite a bit of saturation with the original, physics based, model and we are seeing more branching out now. The Angry Birds group has gotten around alright, from downhill racing to Bust-A-Move style puzzlers to Clickomania style ones, they are on the move. Speaking of Clickomania style games, that brings me to Angry Birds Blast. This is a new genre for the feathered heroes to conquer.

If you have never played Clickomania then you probably played a clone of it. Often titled “something Same Game” in the homebrew and independent developer world, the object is the same. The object is simple: the screen fills with many colored objects randomly scattered around and you can only make a move when there are two or more of the same color touching (up/down or left/right).

Sounds simple, but it is complicated in unique ways in Angry Birds Blast.

The levels are anything but simple squares and rectangles. The levels are often misshapen masses of bubbles that you must click. Then, on top of that, you have a quota on each level. This quota is what makes things even harder, not helped at all by the moves limit you have to work within. Each color corresponds to a bird from the popular franchise. Later levels introduce the pigs and their ill-designed structures to the game.

If you are sick of seeing colored birds causing havoc, then Angry Birds Blast will probably not be a game for you. Puzzle game fans will feel right at home with this one. Rovio have done for Same Game/Clickomania games what Candy Crush Saga did for Bejeweled clones. Take that as you will.
