Angry Birds changes things up a fair bit in its latest iteration, Angry Birds Evolution. The familiar sling-shot physics mechanics are still there, but the game now features team-based gameplay, RPG elements, and a new top-down view.
With all of the new changes, you'll really have to step up your game. Don't worry -- we're here for you. Here are a few beginner's tips to help you along.
Attack the bigger pigs first
The larger pigs pack quite a punch, so try your best to knock them out early on. The smaller pigs will be much more manageable when your not taking globs of damage from a single opponent every turn.
Take time to line up your shot
Your aim is of the utmost importance, so don't rush through it. Use the dotted lines that appear on the map to see which piggies you can kill with a one-hit KO. It's also a good idea to use the debris on the battlefield to send pigs crashing into each other and, better still, explosives.
Use power ups at every opportunity
Power ups appear on the battle field every now and then. Aim your bird at them to scoop them up and gain temporary powerful abilities that will improve your piggie-slaying powers. They're incredibly helpful, especially in a pinch.
Choose your team members carefully
Angry Birds' new team mechanics means each bird you send into battle has its own strengths and weaknesses. Pairing the right birds together in the same team can make all of the difference. Learn what each bird excels at and experiment with different team setups to get the best result.
