App Review No. 10 Angry Birds Rio

Strong Points: 
Still keeps the great Angry Birds formula while giving it a new spin
Boss battles are a great and different feature
New birds are good

Weak Points:
The movie tie in enemies aren't as good as the Pigs! 
Levels aren't as good as the first two games

In-depth Review:

Release Dates:
World Wide: March 22, 2011

This is the third instalment of the six part Angry Birds week and it is a movie tie in. This movie is the Dreamworks animated film Rio. The film happens to be about birds so I guess the tie in made sense.

Out of all of them though I think this is my least favourite, this is due to a few reasons.
1) Being based on a movie there isn't as much freedom for Rovio to work with.
2) Updates are good but advertise an old film that isn't showing anymore. We need Rio 2 levels!
3) The pigs were more recognisable and funny than the monkeys. Perhaps they should team up?

Although I say all this it is still a brilliant game and definitely worth playing. Some of the new features are great and paved the way for future Angry Birds such as boss battles. There are seven boss battles which are Blue and Jewel Fortress; Nigel; Beach Ball Fortress; Mauro; Rio Skydiving Tours Plane; Tough Nigel and Tough Mauro and Marmosets.    
There are 8 level packs which is actually the same as the first game even though this is a movie tie in which is impressive. 
The two new birds (Blue (called Blu in-film) and Jewels, the leading members of the film) are great and bring a difference to the normal Birds.
Blue and Jewels: when the screen is tapped, Jewels flies forward dragging Blue with her.
Blue: when he hits an object, he shakes around dealing more damage.

Overall the game is great but not as good as a certain other movie tie in...

Rating: 87%

Update: make a big splash into the newest Rio adventure! A new move that enables you to dive underwater has become available and good thing too, as you now need to help Brazilian River dolphins as well as birds.
