With racing games like Angry Birds Go! There is that much chaos raging on the track that at first it can be hard to get into, so some tips would be nice. The first few hours of the game will be getting used to the controls and practice with the power-ups and finding the best way to defeat your enemies. So the first tip has to be practice.
At its heart Angry Bird Go! is a Mario Kart clone and that does give us a start on how it plays. We can’t just assume that everything that would work in Mario Kart will work in this though so don’t go in too confident or you’ll be made to pay. These style of racing games always have one thing in common though, the best way to win is to get to the front and be ready to dodge the barrage or bombs that will be thrown your way.
Catapulted into the Race
A difference in Angry Birds Go! is that in Angry Birds you are catapulted onto the track. You have the choice when to release yourself into the race but you have to be careful because if you go without being allowed to you you’ll pick up a penalty which means your little trick won’t have pulled off and you’ll end up with problems. Instead trust your reflexes and release the catapult as soon as you are given the go ahead.
In Mario Kart one of the beauties of the game was taking the corners so close to the edge that you risked crashing, knowing you could get even closer and save some time was something that kept you going until you perfected the track (oh and won the race too). In Angry Birds Go! you don’t have to worry about this, if you want to cut a corner just do it, you’ll find that there is no slowdown anyway.
Another part of Mario Kart that is always memorable are the power-ups. They came around often and were fun to use. Angry Birds Go! does have them but they use a different method in replacing ones you have used so you have to use them wisely. If you can be sure that you can use them with some effect then take the shot (or raise the shield) but trust your instincts, if it doesn’t feel right then don’t use it at that point.
For the main part you’ll find that you build up your own strategy for the races and find your own way to success. Throughout all of this you’ll also find the in-app purchases pop up now and again, and if you decide to use them to quicken the game up it’ll save you having to wait for sleeping Angry Birds or getting the latest needed upgrade for your car. If you can get past them then you are making progress in the game.
