iPhone App Review: Go Wild Birds

iPhone App Review: Go Wild Birds

November 23rd, 2010 by

I’m not sure what it is, but the iPhone somehow seems to draw birds and destruction together.

The game Go Wild Birds by Massimo Croce is a physics puzzler with a strange title, in which you must guide the hapless fowl to the ground by destroying the planks and blocks on which they stand. If they fall too far they get hurt and you must start the level over. It’s a simple idea that’s been done before, but isn’t that true of most iOS games on the app store anyway?

The real question then is how well do the developers of Go Wild Birds execute their vision of the game?


  • Physics – the gravity in the game is a little on the light side, but you can reasonably predict where something will fall based on your knowledge of everyday physics.
  • Graphics – the graphics here are fairly simplistic but get the job done. There are nice touches however with falling autumn leaves and snow on some of the levels.
  • Control – you simply touch something to break it. One nice addition to this game over others in its category is that you can nudge the birds in one direction or the other with a swipe of your finger. This gives you options to complete each level beyond what the initial layout implies.


  • Sound – the game lacks any real sound design. There are basically just sound effects applied to each action, plus some clucking chickens (though not all of the birds are chickens). The one I have a real issue with is the “Yeah!” you hear when a bird reaches the ground safely. Rather than sounding like an overjoyed bird it sounds more like a frat boy watching a football game.
  • Levels – the game is very short, with only ten levels to start. This could conceivably be added to with an update.


Go Wild Birds is a fun, simple physics puzzle game that can keep you entertained for some time. The price is about right at $.99, but more levels would be welcome.
