Angry Birds is a franchise (developed by Rovio Mobile) which started with one game and took over the entire smartphone gaming market by storm. Not only was the original one of the most (or actually ‘the most’!) popular games for Android, it also appeared on other major mobile platforms. Since then there have been several new versions which have seen even more success (the latest announced entry is Angry Birds Transformers). Fortunately for Android users, all Angry Birds games listed here are available for free, so download them on your phone or tablet and knock down some piggies!
#1. Angry Birds
This is the original Angry Birds game which was released back in 2009 (on iOS) and went on to become an iconic title thanks to it’s simple game mechanics, clean graphics and addictive gameplay. The game is still tons of fun to play today and you get a good variety of birds to smash those greedy piggies.
#2. Angry Birds Seasons
This is actually one of my favorite versions of the franchise. In Angry Birds Seasons you get to play with the same birdies but the game is regularly updated with new levels to go with upcoming events or ‘seasons’ from around the globe. The latest update (in October 2014) added the NBA Ham Dunk episode.
#3. Angry Birds Rio
Angry Birds Rio is another fun iteration with some great background music. This game is tied to the animated movie Rio and Rio 2, so you’ll be freeing trapped birds rather than smashing pigs in this one.
#4. Angry Birds Space
Angry Birds Space was a great direction for the franchise as it introduced the concept of planets and space bodies with their own gravitational fields. I personally loved this game and it really does bring a fresh perspective to the same mechanics.
#5. Angry Birds Star Wars
A natural progression for the series after entering space, Angry Birds Star Wars built on the same great gameplay from the previous iteration and introduced the Star Wars branding, which has its own cult following among sci-fi fans. In this version you get to fight the evil empire (pigs) with your own rebels (birds).
#6. Angry Birds Friends
A multiplayer Angry Birds version of sorts, Angry Birds Friends was initially a Facebook app but later made its way to the mobile platform. There are new levels every week and you can compete against your friends for high scores and achievements.
#7. Angry Birds Star Wars II
If you liked the idea behind the first Star Wars game, you’re going to love Angry Birds Star Wars II. In this game you can even switch sides and play with the pigs to take down the birdies. The game has about two dozen new levels and around 30 different characters you can play with.
#8. Angry Birds Go!
Angry Birds Go is basically a racing game featuring the same birds and pigs, except this time the competition takes place on racing tracks. This is another great version if you’re a fan of the franchise and allows you to once again, play as both the birds and the pigs.
#9. Angry Birds Epic
If you’re familiar with turn-based role playing games, you’ll find Angry Birds Epic to be quite enjoyable. This is another new direction for the series, allowing you to craft items, explore islands and engage in turn-based battles with the piggies.
#10. Angry Birds Stella
While not exactly part of the original Angry Birds franchise, Angry Birds Stella uses the same gameplay mechanics to tell a different story. The game is most probably developed with a female target audience in mind and does deliver the same great experience with its level design and graphics.
#11. Angry Birds Transformers
Angry Birds Transformers was a big leap for the franchise. The game is different from what you’ve come to expect from Angry Birds, and is more of a free runner with both elements from the old cartoon series and the game itself. Nevertheless, it is fun and definitely worth a shot, since it’s available for free on Android
#12. Angry Birds Stella POP!
Angry Birds Stella POP! is the latest offering by Rovio and continues with the female Angry Birds but this time you’ll get a bubble shooter instead of the typical game play. The game is available for free on the Play Store but also has in-app purchases. If you’re a female fan of the franchise who enjoys match-three and bubble shooters, you’ll probably love Angry Birds Stella Pop!
#13. Angry Birds 2
Sequel to the record-breaking original, Angry Birds 2 for Android brings the same addictive gameplay with tweaks like better graphics, multi-level stages, spells and boss fights.
An arena mode is also there for some multiplayer fun and the game has received lots of downloads from fans around the world.
