This 168 MB free download from the Google Play Store is by publisher Rovio Mobile Ltd. and features the same angry bird characters that one is so familiar with from the Angry Birds franchise. Basically the theme is kart racing and specifically downhill racing on Piggy Island. This game is different from the other Angry Birds game in that it shows the Angry Birds universe in 3D. The racing track has many twists and turns and in addition there are many sub-plots to get the leader off the track. Now you can race either as the Angry Birds themselves or as the Piggies.
GAMEPLAY :: THE PLOT :
The characters to race include Red, Chuck, Terence, Stella, King Pig, Moustache Pig and others. And you can race in a homemade soapbox car or a super fly supercar with tons of karts and awesome ways to upgrade which can either be earned via game play or purchased. There are also special powers for every character that you choose. There are several game modes such as Race, Time Boom, Fruit Splat, Champion Chase and Versus Mode. There is also a new way to play using the ground breaking Telepods figures on your device’s camera, please consult the Hasbro website to see if your device is compatible. With a plethora of racetracks, stunt roads, air courses and off road races, Angry Birds Go is sure to keep one and all enthralled.
To start the race one needs to pull a kart on their slingshot and let go into the track and you will do only one lap in each challenge. The tracks are short and you might get a sense of deja vu at times as things seem repetitive. Each bird has five points of energy. Each race uses up one point of energy and there is a twenty minute waiting period for each recharge point to occur once you exhaust the energy limit or you can shell out premium currency. Also every time you use the special powers that the birds possess will cost you in premium currency so better disable your In App Purchases setting on your Android phone, or the bills will soon ratchet up especially if the game is given to an Angry Bird fan toddler. So all in all, it is a very simple game with simple controls; however the monetization does seem to hurt a bit as also the repetition of tracks.
