So here are the games that come highly recommended by N8Geeks;
Angry Birds – Strategy
What? A game involving birds? What on earth! In this game you literally use small, large and positively very angry birds as your choice of weapon to defeat the arch enemies – the green pigs. The enemy has stolen your eggs and it’s your mission to reclaim them using your various artillery (or should I say birds).
You fire your birds from the left side of the screen into various structures with the aim of the game to kill each and every green pig that is on your screen in order to progress to the next level.
Compete against thousands upon thousands of other people with online leader boards, or if you’re anything like me, even compete against your friends to see who’s the best Angry Bird-ee. This game will give you many hours of fun, strategic planning and tonnes of excitement – all for free.
This particular version is only a small, free version – which has with it 6 unique and fun levels. The full game is due to be released soon on the Nokia N8, so keep your eyes peeled.
