Angry Birds Unblocked is a puzzle slingshot game developed by Rovio Entertainment in 2009 for IOS and 2010 for Android. The gameplay revolves around players using a slingshot to launch the birds at green pigs stationed in or around various structures, with the intent of destroying all the pigs on the playing field.
As players advance through the game, new types of birds become available (some with special abilities that can be activated by the player). Rovio Mobile has supported Angry Birds with numerous free updates that add additional game content, and the company has also released stand-alone holiday and promotional versions of the game.
Angry Birds Unblocked Gameplay
In Angry Birds Unblocked, to play the game, the player needs to press the Episodes button, that will show the episodes. The player starts with the Poached Eggs episode.
Each episode has its set of levels, which each time unlocked, has only one level available. When the player clicks the level button, the game will open the level. In the level, the player starts with a pre-determined set of birds, and a determined structure with pigs.
In order to beat the level, the player has to defeat all of the pigs in the level. In order to defeat pigs, the player needs to hit them with birds, which can be done by using the slingshot.
The player can sling a bird by pressing the slingshot and holding while dragging the rubber. The longer the rubber is dragged, the farther the bird will fly. The rubber can be dragged to all sides, except in the middle. Leaving the bird in the middle will cancel the launch.
