Description

A mash-up between Angry Birds and Sid & Al's Incredible Toons, this game beefs up the basic premise of Angry Birds (plot a 2D ballistic trajectory to destroy the homes of pigs) but lays on it the traditional fable of the three little pigs, putting the player in the role of the Big Bad Wolf whose job it is to dine on pork hiding in houses made of straw, wood and brick. Aforementioned Wolf launches himself out of cannons, circus-style, after adjusting his angle, the shot power, and applying any special modifiers available (eg. setting himself on fire -- sure takes care of straw and wood walls!) Each cannon can only launch him so many times, but fortunately most levels contain many cannons, affording the Wolf his choice of angles from which to mount his assault against the pigs. Sometimes he just can't get a good angle on the pigs, but he can be shot into or against environmental objects, triggering them, Rube Goldberg-style, into somehow furthering his grim work against the pigs.

The levels (144 of them!) also offer bonuses for pickup and the scores rise with additional destruction -- though players are also rewarded at level completion for saving shots and making quick work of the pigs. Coins are earned upon level completion, which can be used to unlock certain levels (like the extensive, sprawling mansions) or take a spin on the Wheel of Cheating.
