Start building some bridges, and help the Fat Birds get back home!
The Fat Birds have gotten themselves into some serious trouble. At first, they utterly disregarded their flying lessons, and now the evil mastermind Mad Hamster managed to destroy their airship! How can you help the Fat Birds? You simply have to build some bridges, that are substantial enough to withstand the birds’ weight! This is the only means of overcoming all this hazardous wilderness together. You’re about to embark on a trip to the Red Desert, the Caverns of the Eternal Night, the World of Snow, the Caves of Ice, and last but not least — the Everburning Tropics. All the best of luck!
The game features:
- 60 unique levels
- 5 separate worlds to traverse
- Realistic representation of the principles of physics involved in bridge construction
- Construction strength calculated in real time
- An easy to use interface
- Different music score for every world
- Integration with the Game Center
- Integration with the iCloud
So pump up those building skills, and give the Fat Birds a helping hand!

Pretty Good, but Buggy
The game is engaging. Some levels are much more difficult than others, with some levels requiring the birds to navigate wobbly bridges or drop from a height in order to get three stars.
For game play, perhaps the physics of the bridge pieces are consistent, but they're not always logical. Some tricks you can use to get three stars would not work with real world physics. Sometimes the birds will treat a bridge piece as a railing instead of as a platform, no matter what the player intends. Sometimes bridge pieces will simply fall off, even though they are properly connected to other pieces.
This could be a much better game after some thorough debugging.
Bugs add to difficulty
Don't be fooled by its child-like appearance. This is a difficult game. Building bridges with a limited number of nodes and trusses is very hard and very fun. However, the bugs in the game make it even more difficult.
The build/destroy toggle is frustrating, too. Why have two buttons if they're just a toggle? That is a usability problem.
Being able to draw a truss onto the land and not being able to connect to that node is another annoying bug. The destruction of a node without explanation may be an as-designed functionality, but it's annoying and, if I were beta testing this app, I would label it a bug.
It's also irritating to have the app ask you to write a review, you do, then the app asks immediately for you to write a review. Even if you select "don't ask again", it asks again. Repeatedly.
Can the developers tell me why I can build a bridge with fewer than the maximum nodes, and doesn't even wiggle, how I'm getting 1 star for that level?
I love it!!
This game is so funny! It's a great time waster, and easy to get addicted to! The fat birds (what are those things? I think they are birds) are so cute. It's a great twist on bridge building games. The physics is not complex- there are other games out there for that. Instead the game is fun and not intense. That does not mean it's easy. I have to play many levels over again, but it's never frustrating. It is addictive and perfectly challenging. And the characters are great!
