Angry Birds Go, the long-awaited installment of the widely popular Angry Birds saga, is finally in our palms. At last, the time has come when Rovio decides to finally leave the original concept for a while and works on something new and exciting. They tried with Bad Piggies, which was either a hit or miss. Now with Angry Birds Go they aim for the stars and our thoughts are, they have every right to do so.
Angry Birds Go, as by now you may be familiar, is a new karting game featuring our beloved Angry Birds characters. Taking the same steps as some other popular game publishers, Rovio decided it’s time to freshen the still-actual franchise with a new title worthy enough to put the stakes even higher and from our perspective they have done just that. Angry Birds Go is very exciting, addictive, easy to play and features some very nice graphics and audio effects. Combine all of those mentioned above and you get an incredible racer that will keep you entertained for quite a while.
Let’s cover the basics to begin with: Angry Birds Go is a very feature-rich game featuring numerous diverse races organized in several level packs. The first race is followed by a brief tutorial which shows the key elements of the game: controls, rules and rewards. Controls are very simple and different layouts can be set from the settings menu. As for the gameplay, Angry Birds Go is not just about lapping a single circuit and coming in first: there is also a respectable amount of different race modes to complete. And, based on your position and on the in-race coins you collect and stunts you do, at the end of each race you’re awarded with a good number of coins and stars for level completion, just like in other casual Angry Birds Games.

At the end of each level you are awarded up to three stars for each and some coins
Angry Birds Go takes several cues from other Angry Birds as well. For starters, nearly all of the birds and pigs are present here. Then there’s the slingshot launch of the karts at the beginning of each race and lets not forget the special powers that are unique to each character. And, all of those are incorporated in such way the game feels quite fresh and one of a kind.
