What It Is
Apptivity Angry Birds is an app toy for iPad that includes a figure of King Pig (a green pig from the Angry Birds game) that when placed on an iPad, unlocks four new ways to play Angry Birds. The Apptivity toy features conductive points that, when placed on an iPad, allow kids to interact with the Angry Birds game.
Why It’s Fun
The Apptivity toy unlocks four new modes in Angry Birds: King Pig mode turns the pigs into eggs and the birds into pigs; Material Mix-Up changes the materials that construct the Pig's structures; Bird Frenzy gives you unlimited birds to launch at the pigs but a short time to do it; and finally, Total Destruction challenges you to destroy the pig structures by swiping the King Pig figure or you finger across the screen. Each new mode is a creative spin on the classic Angry Birds game-play, where you try to knock the pigs off their structure with as few birds as possible.
Who It’s For
Bird Frenzy and Total Destruction make the Angry Birds game much easier to play, which is perfect for little gamers who might usually find Angry Birds too difficult to enjoy.
What To Be Aware Of
In addition to purchasing the Apptivity toy, you must also download the free Angry Birds game app from the iTunes App Store.
Once the Apptivity toy unlocks any of the new modes, the game can be played without the toy being held on the iPad.
