A terrible fiend from beyond the stars has cast a curse on humanity, turning everyone into talking candies! It is up to you to set things right by teaming up with super-powered sweets in this highly innovative, match-three puzzle adventure!

Make sure to deplete the enemies’ health before they deplete yours!

There are more than a dozen level to beat as you fight your way closer towards the space demon himself. Many rewards and more heroes can be encountered along the way, allowing you to muster up enough power to undo this cosmic curse. Now, step forward hero! It is time to fire up that cannon and show the evils of the universe your sweet brand of justice!

▲ A dark force has cursed mankind, turning everyone into candies!

▲ Align the gems and unleash the power of your candy heroes as you fire away.

▲ Collect an all-star cast and use their abilities to turn the tide of every battle.

What makes an Angry Bird even angrier? Being trapped inside a balloon by those dastardly green pigs! Steady your mind and ready that prodding finger as you aim to release the birds from their latex chamber with timely taps and powerful power-ups!

The number and type of birds you need to free in the level is shown on the top-left: tap two or more balloons with matching colors to burst them and add them to the tally. The amount of remaining moves is shown at the top of the screen, so be sure to reach your bird quota before it runs out or else you will have to start again!

▲ Combine boosters to create carnage, help you max out your score, and reach the coveted three stars!

▲ Plan ahead to shatter the glass shapes and punch those pigs in the levels they appear in order to reach the quota.

▲ Tap the pen and paper icon from the map screen to access quests that offer rewards for reaching certain levels or finding hatchlings hidden within various stages.

Make use of power-up boosters, created by matching five or more balloons at once, to clear levels quicker. Matching five balloons grants you a rocket that bursts a line of balloons with a tap, seven creates a bomb that eliminates all in the surrounding area, and nine creates a laser gun that pops all balloons with the same color. You can even combine boosters by tapping them when they are next to each other to create killer combos!

As the levels progress, those repulsive pigs will start making cameos: match balloons next to them twice to smack them into submission. Further on, glass tiles will appear that need to be shattered in order to access the balloons or pigs beside them. Skillfully strategize your pops and stay under the limit while you maneuver your moves to rescue those birds!
