Ah yes… Angry Birds. Most people are familiar with this phenomenon of a game, but here’s a very quick synopsis for the uninitiated. The storyline of Angry Birds is fairly simple, telling the story of a seemingly endless battle between birds and pigs. The pigs have stolen the birds eggs (hence the ‘angry’ part), and the game follows the birds quest to recover the eggs from the pigs. To do so, the birds must defeat the pigs who are hiding in many different well-protected structures, which the birds must penetrate and destroy to be victorious.
