Puzzling levels will keep you wrapped up for hours.
Addictive gameplay with multiple solutions for each level will have you playing for hours.
Avoid flying knives, fire cannons and of course the evil bats.
Collect or purchase butterflies to unlock later levels or provide hints to help you on your adventure.
Visit the bird sanctuary to see the cute baby birds you have rescued.
Drag a length of rope through a series of gears, and attach it to the cage to release your friends. Pesky enemies, fire, and other rope-wrecking obstacles threaten feathered freedom. Collect butterflies on the way for special bonuses, and try use as little rope as possible for maximum points.
Let me start off by saying this game is beautifully designed. The graphics are outstanding and the sound track and effects are good. The game play is cute and somewhat unique and it is fun to play.
Now to IAP games. It is obvious that you have to play perfectly and not use any hints and collect all of the bonuses to open the final level. Since the game is supposed to sell for $2.99 what is the point of paying $2.99 if you can't finish the game with reasonable skill?
If In App Purchases are such a great deal, why not tell the consumer what the in app purchases are for and how much they cost on the web site before they buy the game? Why not say something like, "The game includes 60 levels and for $1.99 you can purchase an additional 30 levels." (For example) Clearly state that if you play the game perfectly you can unlock the top level and get the 30 games for free.
App developers don't say this because they know that you either won't play the game because it costs more or that you will try to get perfect scores on every level and they won't make any more money. How do we even know that you can even earn a perfect score as the game assigns the score and the feathers? As the developer you can assign the winning score to each level to have us achieve whatever final result you want.
We have come to a sad point in game development where the game developers are losing 50% of their potential customers with a marketing and pricing ploy that seems unscrupulous and turns off the potential buyers. This is a good game that could have been better without this option. I'll play through the free levels and then quit. No IAP options will entice me to spend more money. I am in the 50% of the people who will not pay more.
This game seems decent. New concept and challenging levels. Some of the levels don't make much sense, but I'm sure they're solvable, somehow. The problem I have is with the hint system. If you even THINK about a level too much, the game will hound you with how you can access hints. Unfortunately, the hints are basically a pay-per-use system, though you won't know that until much later in the game when you need all your butterflies to unlock the last level. This fact alone is obnoxious. Combined with the fact that the game costs three dollars to begin with means that this game isn't even worth your time. Just move along and find another app (or three) to spend your money on and save yourself the frustration.
How low can you go?? There's like dozens of reviews all from last week on this version and the free version, all the same people. The free app was out for a month with zero reviews for 3 weeks. Then an onslaught of reviews just this week before FAOD hits. Then they lie over on the free version saying they actually bought the free version today!!! Really??? They got the paid version for free today then went over to the free one and bought that too and reviewed it??? Dev really thinks we're a bunch of idiots to fall for so many fake reviews, it's pathetic. Then the same people come here and insult the amazon reviewing customers on so many one star reviews. Tsk, tsk!!!!
They are just an arrogant bunch of creeps getting angry because they now realize the IAP scam is exposed and all the lashing out in the world, the phony planted reviews, the onslaught of insults, and this supposed fun game all isn't enough to blindsiding the customers. Too bad as the game didn't look half bad if they would have sold it ALL, without IAP, for the overinflated price they actually want for this app. No app that's a birdie game should be 2.99 and ALSO have IAP!!! Get real, dev!!! This is NOT Angry Birds!!! It's a generic little birdie and rope combo game, obviously created to try to combine Cut the Rope and Angry Birds components together, two top apps, thinking they're going to make a killing on it. But there they go, killing the app right from the start with the greedy business model, ruining their reputation. Just create a great game, sell it for one price, and see what happens!!
Count up all the phony reviews, then minus the kiddie comments given because they were asked to rate the app while playing because they always think a freebie bonus in the game is coming if they review it (it happens often in apps), and then see what is left - At best, a 2-1/2 star app.
A logic reasoning puzzle game with great graphics and yet still the required bit of "coolness" so everyone will play it. Appreciate the free full version given on 7/6/12 and will look at other games by this company. Con depending on your abilities if playing on kindle fire or smaller I'm going to use stylus (as soon ad I find mine) some parts hard to see whet is whet with fingers in the way. But I'm old so that might nit count for the Kidd lol
I am one of the folks who got this as a FAOTD, and I never had any intention of paying anything extra, as for me free means just that. Several people have mentioned that you can't play the last level without paying an additional fee if you have not been able to achieve near perfect performance, and they seem to be quite angry about it.
I have not gone far enough in the game to confirm that you can't complete the game without paying more, but for me the solution is simple, when I hit the area that requires additional money, game over! It was, after all, a free game, so if I stop playing after 6 levels, than I got a 6 level game, that is enjoyable, for free! Certainly nothing to be angry about, unless I had paid for a game that required me to pay more to finish it, in which case I would be pissed.
Bought the full version. The program is defective. Half way through the program turns upside down. Try flipping the tablet and for 2 seconds is straight then it flips upside down again. Loved the game, hate the program errors.
