Bird Strike

Bird Strike

This game offers the same approachability,  intuitive controls, and replayabitlity as some of the best casual games, with the added bonus of some delightful artwork. If you are a fan of games like Scoops or Doodle Jump, this is really worth checking out. The graphics are top-notch and loaded with character. It starts off as a simple Winter Bells clone, but soon diverges from the formula by adding different powerups and obstacles. The best part, though, is when you reach the maximum sky height, by grabbing rocket powerups, you encounter a UFO that blasts you back down through the vertical level at top speed. It’s even more fun on the way back, because you score big for destroying any of the obstacles that you originally had to avoid. At the very bottom, if you tilt your little blue bird perfectly, he plummets down through an open sewer lid to grab even more goodies. Great stuff here, for the most part, but the end-game can sometimes degenerate into an un-winnable state, if you overuse your rockets. Once you play through all the levels, you either return to compete more on the OpenFeint leaderboards or simply delete it with a satisfied feeling.
