Angry Birds Go! is a 3D cart racing game set in Angry Birds universe. The game has a humorous tone and arcade-style gameplay with super-powers, TNT crates lying on the race tracks and so on. The game is divided into four worlds, each consisting of several opponents to beat. Once you beat an opponent three times, it is recruited in the player racing team. Eventually the player will have a team of twelve birds and pigs familiar from Angry Birds games and the animated show, each with their unique super powers. To beat an opponent three times the players will need to buy upgrades for their cart with gold that can be obtained by participating in other racing events which include: Race (a simple race to the finish line against several other racers), Time Boom (a solo race against the clock), Fruit Splat (a solo race or race against opponents in which the player has to hit a number of fruits lying on the race track), Versus (a race against a random racer). After beating a racing event five times the challenge mode for that event is unlocked.
Angry Birds Go! is free-to-play, which means a player can beat the game without paying a penny, however this will require participating in the same races over and over to get enough gold for cart upgrades that will allow access to new races. Moreover, a bird (or a pig) can only race several times in a row, after that it gets tired and needs to rest for some time (from several minutes to about an hour). However, anything in the game can be bought for real money, from gold and gems to unique upgraded carts and super-powers. There's also a special game mode Jenga, which resembles classic Angry Birds gameplay in full 3D, this mode is only available via a secret code or for a fee.
Like in Angry Birds: Star Wars II, players can use Hasbro Telepod technology with their Android/iPod/iPhone cameras to scan a QR code that allows them to teleport a cart into a level.
