- Bee Critters () (Every successful pop will bring in one bee into the playing field up to 3 bees. Missing one will lose one, and changes color every 3 successful pops. Drop a bubble onto it, and it will bounce to score points. The color changes in order ( )
The game features the slingshot lined up in the bottom center, and the player flings the bubble to pop bubbles at the top with a combination of three or more bubbles with the same color. Each level will be given a limited number of bubbles indicated beside the slingshot known as the bubble count. Sometimes, there are some obstacles and special blocks that appear at the top along with the bubbles. This game features a common live system that starts with 5 x . Each level attempt must have at least 1 life in order to play. When you run out of bubbles, there will be an option to continue by purchasing 12 x in exchange for 5 x and 1 x each time or to give up. When you give up, will lose one of the lives. Afterwards, you may retry or if available watch an advertisement video to earn free boost at the beginning of the next attempt. If you lost all the lives, you must get lives from friends () or purchase with 10 x to continue playing. The game originally featured the five characters that appear in Angry Birds Stella formerly, and after the Hamhock Holmes update, 5 characters from The Angry Birds Movie and various classic Angry Birds games (including Stella as she is remained) were added. Each character will have a special power that can be used when the Pop Meter is full to unlock powerful boosts from their powers like Stella's Power Pop, Bomb's Blast Pop and many more . To fill the Pop Meter (), you have to get Streaks, that means popping 6 times in a row without a single miss. The levels are in different modes and each of them marked as an icon and the level number (). Each kind of level has music in the game that distinguishes different types of gameplay. When the level is completed, the number of stars () and if Golden Feathers () were achieved, will be shown on the map (refer to gallery). Here we will show you a list of the kind of levels that have been known:

Each bird has a special pop when their streak meter is full.
Be careful when using a special pop against a powerup(s) as it will trigger the effects.
