Angry Birds Are Invading Other Genres Again. This Time it's Match-3 With Angry Birds Fight!

Posted by Rob Rich on June 12th, 2015
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Oh Angry Birds. You're quite possibly the most tenacious flock of oddly-shaped avians the world has ever known. The series has been branching out into things that don't involve hurtling tiny feathered animals into pigs wuite a bit lately, and now Angry Birds Fight! has hit (punf absolutely intended) the match-3 genre.

Angry Birds Fight! looks to be inspired by combat-centric puzzlers akin to Puzzle & Dragons and the quite recent You Must Build a Boat. In other words, rather than matching stuff to earn a high score, you're matching stuff in order to charge up attacks and pluck the tail feathers of your opponents. Fights earn experience, new items, and coins that can be used to buy new items - all in the name of unlocking more birds and customizing your own personal flock. Whether it's in solo challenges or against other players in real time multiplayer, you'll be able to dive in and start puzzle-brawling.

If this somewhat odd departure for the series sounds like your cup of tea, you can download Angry Birds Fight! right now for free.
