The eleventh Angry Birds game developed by Rovio Entertainment. Just as in the original Angry Birds, players use a slingshot to launch birds at nearby structures but they got to choose which bird to shoot.

The player loses if there is no card left for popping pigs. Spells are also available as extra cards and can be used just like birds. Spells include raining rubber ducks, summoning blizzards, chilis, and more. Some levels include boss fights, that has the player using the environment to defeat the boss, which has a health bar.
