thumbnail Angry Birds Go review: Another iOS game bogged down by in-game purchases
Jan 10th 2014, 16:24, by Yishian Yao

Angry Birds Go starts off strong with a familiar character, a basic go kart, and a fun course with polished visuals. Despite the solid start to this racing game, this is one of those free-to-play games that quickly gets bogged down by in-game purchases.

The different racetracks are fun, particularly the ones that involve great leaps and flying, and various types of races are included to spice up the the game. One involves collecting a certain amount of fruit by driving into them, while another requires you to quickly maneuver around ice, rock and wood obstacles before the timer runs out and a bomb explodes. 

Unfortunately, purchases and sponsored ads are constantly dangled in front of you, interfering with your enjoyment of the game. This is a case where unless you make the in-game purchases, the the races quickly become tedious.

In order to unlock different tracks and characters, you must first pass all the levels of your current racing course. To successfully complete those levels, kart upgrades that cost gold coins are required. These coins must be collected from the track and earned by successfully completing challenges and then repeating races over and over again, unless you pay for them or the upgraded karts themselves.
