Angry Birds is a puzzle video game developed by Finnish computer game developer Rovio Mobile. Inspired primarily by a sketch of stylized wingless birds, the game was first released for Apple's iOS in December 2009. Since that time, over 12 million copies of the game (as of 2011) have been purchased from Apple's App Store.
In the game, players use a slingshot to launch birds at pigs stationed on or within various structures, with the intent of destroying all the pigs on the playfield. As players advance through the game, new birds appear, some with special abilities that can be activated by the player.
My daughters got me hooked on the game and I won three stars in all levels with no 'eagle' or cheating. Then they told me about Angry Birds Rio - now I have to start all over again :D
