''Angry Birds'' is an [[ArtilleryGame artillery simulator]][=/=]PuzzleGame created by Finnish video game developer Rovio Entertainment in 2009. The premise of the game is that some evil, egg-munching pigs have raided the nests of some birds who mean to get their eggs back, whatever it takes. Said egg retrieving involves launching the birds from a slingshot at the pigs, who are protected behind elaborate obstacles of wood, ice and stone. It's a simple concept, but the execution is often [[NintendoHard anything but easy]].
