If you haven't tried the addictive and mega popular Angry Birds HD game on your iPad yet, then it's about time you did.
Your mission in Angry Birds HD is to destroy all the green pigs by catapulting birds at them. This wouldn't be too difficult, except for the fact the hogs are holed up inside fortified castles which you need to smash into in order to enter. As the levels progress, these fortresses become ever more impenetrable, so Angry Birds HD requires a bit of lateral thinking as well as a steady aim.
To fire a bird you simply pull back on the catapult, adjust the trajectory, then release your finger. You can shoot four birds per turn, and if you don't destroy every pig then you'll have to start the level again. There are dozens of levels spread across several worlds, so it'll be a long time before you get bored of Angry Birds HD.
As well as being great fun to play, Angry Birds HD looks the part too. Graphics are colorful and fun, and the bird noises and sound effects are hilarious.
One of the few criticisms I have of Angry Birds HD is that you're left waiting too long for the level to load again when you retry.
Overall though, Angry Birds HD is enjoyable enough to put a smile on the face of even the most sullen iPhone gamer.
