How to Play the Game
The Angry Birds: Knock on Wood game follows the very same concept used in the computer application. The birds are taking revenge on the green pigs who have just stolen their eggs. Hence, players build structures and take turns on launching the angry birds through the slingshot, aiming for the green pigs. The more structures and pigs are knocked down, the more points are earned.
A lot of parents are impressed with the game’s concept. The Angry Birds: Knock on Wood Game has given their kids the opportunity to get out of their computer chairs and to engage in an actual game – which is a much healthier option.
One thing we noticed was that pieces of the structures tend to be scattered everywhere and can easily get lost. Thus, you need to find wide open spaces for playing. Some product users also commented that the materials making out the birds, the pigs and the structures were very sturdy – which is very important.
The rules of Angry Birds are very simple and everyone on the family can participate and have fun with it. Parents highly recommend this game as it helps cultivate their kid’s creativity, problem-solving skills and patience.
As mentioned before, tidying up after the game can be very tedious. The pieces can be scattered everywhere and could even get lost, if you are not too careful. Apart from that, the structures shown on the mission cards can be quite challenging to make with the actual blocks. Building the structures can take up most of the players’ time and can be very challenging for the younger ones who might want to play the game, too.
Many product users also commented that the game levels – which are supposed to be grouped according to levels of difficulty, are not done so. There are some structures that may be a bit hard to build at level one. Catapulting the angry birds and aiming them at the right target may take a lot of practice and getting used to as well and is harder to do than in the computer game application.
In spite of the many challenges, moms have rated this is as one good buy for their kids. It definitely makes a great Christmas gifts. The game is relatively safe to play, it is educational, challenging and is something that the whole family can do as well.
