Shoot the Birds is an extremely addicting game where it’s your mission to grab the crossbow and shoot down all kinds of birds in mid-flight. To draw your crossbow, slide your finger downwards on the screen (for more power, slide further). To aim, slide your finger left/right and then release your finger to fire.
This Android game’s graphics are incredible, easily some of the best in the Android Market. The shadows, colors, and movement of objects give the scenes an almost 3-D effect.
Each round of the game has three objectives that you must complete before moving on to the next. For example, the third round requires your shoot 5 pink birds, get a 4 bird shish-kebab (4 birds with a single arrow), and to be in Fury Mode 5 times. Other requirements define specific scores you must achieve, a streak of consecutive birds shot, etc.
Your score is based on a few different factors. First, certain birds are worth different amounts of feathers (points) depending on their size and speed. Big, slow birds are worth the least while fast, small birds are worth the most. Second, each round has a time limit which is influenced by your performance. Shoot a bird, add time. Miss a bird, lose time. Third, score multipliers will run up your total score quickly. A couple different ways to earn these multipliers are to build a streak of consecutive shots without a miss or create a shish-kebab with multiple birds (3 birds = 3x multiplier).
