Angry Birds Epic for Windows Phone hands-on, plays on 512MB of RAM
Angry Birds Epic for Windows Phone is the latest game from Rovio and brings a RPG gaming twist to the world of Red, Chuck, Bomb and the other heroes as they face King Pig, Wiz Pig and Prince Porky in this turn-based battle game. We’ve got it on our 512MB of RAM smartphones, the Nokia Lumia and Nokia Lumia 520.
Angry Birds Epic for Windows Phone is a free RPG (Role Playing Game) that mixes adventure, turn-based action and plenty of weapons magic, bad guys and silly hats! The game play may be different but the graphics are sharp and in keeping with previous games.
Across the course of the game you get to explore a fantasy Piggy Island with everything from tribal villages and frosty mountains to tropical beaches and mysterious caves!
Once you start playing you’ll find that while there are RPG elements to it, in so much as you can progress your character with upgrades and create some truly bizarre weapons, the game does move along quite familiar lines.
For example, it’s still very much level based with the aim of collecting three stars the highest score and progressing onto the next level. However, the turn-based combat is new, as are the host of new ways to play.
Fortunately, there are plenty of in-game aids to help you get up to speed. Epic is free to download and play but you will find in-app purchases to help you progress more swiftly through the game, along with adverts for other Rovio products.
We’ve been checking the game out on our Nokia Lumia 630 for Windows Phone 8.1 and the Nokia Lumia 520 running Windows Phone, both of which come with 512MB of RAM and are happy to report that the game loads and runs smoothly and quickly. So, no matter which Nokia Lumia running Windows Phone 8 you have you’ll be able to play this great new game.
Angry Birds Epic nicely moves the franchise on into new areas, no doubt taking hordes of fans along with it. We love the classic Angry Birds look, feel and sound to the game but with a bolder vision than previous games that could well give them another classic.
Angry Birds Epic is a free 60MB download from the Windows Phone Store.
