As of this writing, the popular game Angry Birds is only available as a mobile app. It is said to be in development for game consoles such as Wii, XBox, and PS3, but if you want to play the game on your computer, you’re out of luck.
Fortunately, there are a number of games similar to Angry Birds that can be played online for free. The six listed here are some of the best of those available. Enjoy!
1. Crush the Castle 2
This game plays very much like Angry Birds, but instead of flinging birds with a slingshot, you’re flinging various types of ammo with a catapult. Instead of destroying pigs, you’re destroying enemy kings and their friends. Each level is successively more challenging, and you gain new types of ammo as you go.
2. All Rabbits Must Die
Jack and his brothers were having a picnic when the rabbits showed up and stole all their food. Now it’s payback time! The concept of this game is very similar to Angry Birds. Exact revenge by tossing the brothers at the rabbits, who have set up different types of barriers to protect themselves.
Yet another physics-based puzzle game in the same style as Angry Birds, except this time you’re an angry mob with a cannon which you must fire at the invading monsters. Dazzling graphics alone make this game worth checking out.
4. Old Cannon
The game play of this one is not quite as much like Angry Birds as the above three games, but you’re still shooting at stuff to knock it over. The object of this game is to aim your cannon at strategic points on a structure to bring it tumbling down. You only have three shots per round, though you can easily restart each round if you fail. Some levels are quite challenging, and it’s surprisingly addicting.
From the same developers as Crush the Castle comes a game with a similar concept, but again, the game play of this one isn’t quite as much like Angry Birds, though it is similar. Rather than fling your ammo, you click at strategic points on the castle, which causes your ammo to hit those spots. You get more types of ammo, which cause different kinds of damage, as you go through the levels. The goal is to destroy all the enemies and preserve any hostages, and to do it in as few shots as possible.
6. Cannibal Casserole
This one is comparable to Angry Birds in that you fling an object at a target, and often there are obstacles to deal with. Basically, you must use ragdolls which you catapult, usually at things, to accomplish your goal. That goal is to eventually land one of the ragdolls into each of the cooking pots in the level. The game’s graphics, colorful and fun, are probably the most similar to Angry Birds of any of the games on this list. It can be quite addicting, since each level offers a unique challenge to keep things interesting.
