As usual, the App of the Week doesn’t disappoint. Bird Zapper brings a completely redesigned form of the classical match-three game, which can keep you occupied for hours.
Our friend Mr. Squirrel can’t watch his favorite TV show because of some birds messing around the electric line. Help him get the power back by eliminating the birds, rather cruelly, I must add. Unleash you electrocution skills and let those feathered meddlers zap at your finger tip.
The gameplay in Bird Zapper is similar to other match three games but the environment is undoubtedly fresh and unique. We have set of birds including parrots, owls, crows and swans arranged on three electric wires. These birds keep sliding in rows and in different rates. Swipe across adjacent birds of a flock to shock them. Unlike other games, there is no time to scan carefully as you’ve to act quick before they slide out of site. Match the most you can in a glance and continue till the battery runs out.
As the game progress, the number of lines increase to four and five and new birds are introduced. Things are made further difficult when the pace starts to rise. Helping you are various special birds, who can freeze the flow, explode TNT, snipe out birds, be the joker and more. Occasional egg-laying, fleeing birds and sparkling of wire adds to the excitement.
Bird Zapper sports a Survival mode, Blitz mode, Race mode and a Zen mode. Besides, quick play and multiplayer are also present.
The gameplay is immensely addictive. It is colorful, quick and pleasing. Starting from the minor sound effects till the exclamational comments, everything seems to be in perfect place. Go grab Bird Zapper.
