"It's pig popping season"
Tagline

Angry Birds Seasons, formerly known as Angry Birds Halloween, is a video game that is part of the Angry Birds series. It was developed and published by Rovio Entertainment. It was published as Angry Birds Halloween in October 2010, and as Angry Birds Seasons in December of that year.

In 2019, all remaining Angry Birds games that were released before Angry Birds Transformers (aside from Angry Birds Friends), including Angry Birds Seasons, were removed from the App Store and Google Play in every country except Zimbabwe (though Bad Piggies would be added back worldwide in early 2020).

Gameplay

An example of Angry Birds Seasons gameplay in Trick or Treat, the first episode added to the game.

Angry Birds Seasons is a puzzle video game with similar gameplay to that from previous Angry Birds games. In the game, the player takes control of a limited group of birds, who can be launched anywhere by the use of a slingshot. All levels have a series of pigs the player must pop by the use of their characters. These pigs normally appear sheltered inside of structures made of wood, glass, and/or stone, in addition of some additional objects, such as TNT. If the player fails to pop all the pigs in the levels, they will get a Level Failed screen, encouraging them to try again. If they manage to do so however, they will win and pass to the next level. Upon completing each level, the player will receive one, two, or three stars depending on the score received.

As with other Angry Birds games, Angry Birds Seasons is composed on several episodes; in this game, episodes are based on differents holidays celebrated throughout the world. The Android version also has a "Continue Playing!" option in the main menu which takes the player to the last level they played. Most episodes have exclusive features used to celebrate the holidays they are based off; for example, Go Green, Get Lucky makes use of caludrons filled with money, while Halloween-themed episodes often have jack-o-lanterns. Nevertheless, some episodes may have elements that were taken from past episodes, such as Ski or Squeal and Ragnahog making use of Tony, a character that first appeared in On Finn Ice.

Like other Angry Birds games, Angry Birds Seasons makes use of powerups, which are optional booster items the player can use to get a temporal advantage to beat the level with more ease. These powerups are limited and cannot be used if the player runs out of them; to compensate this, Angry Birds Seasons also makes use of Bird Coins, the game's currency, which allow the player to buy more powerups and unlock extra episodes. While Bird Coins can be obtained by collecting stars or by watching ads, the player is also encouraged to use real money to buy more Bird Coins with real money to use in gameplay.

In December 2010, the game would be updated as Angry Birds Seasons due to the adding of another episode, Season's Greedings, though the Halloween levels were kept in an episode called Trick or Treat. Angry Birds Seasons would also receive a free release on Android and Symbian devices, though with ads included in it. The game would continue receiving updates with new episodes that celebrated the seasons and festivities of the years, until 2016 with the addition of Ragnahog, an episode made to celebrate Christmas, set in a Nordic theme.

Music

Cover of Angry Birds Seasons (Original Game Soundtrack).

In 2018, all music tracks from Angry Birds Seasons would be released in the form of Angry Birds Seasons (Original Game Soundtrack).

Angry Birds Seasons is the first Angry Birds game to have songs in its soundtrack. There are a total of four songs released for the game: "Peace Song 2011", "Peace Song 2012: Fly Me Home Tonight", "Peace Song 2013: Ode to Snow", and "Peace Song 2014: Santamental Me".

Reception

Both Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Halloween received generally positive reviews both by critics and fan alike. In Metacritic, it holds an user score of 6.9 for the iOS version based on twenty-two ratings;[1] a 4.3 score for the HD version of the game released on the same platform based on nineteen ratings;[2] and a score of 7.8 based on twenty-two ratings for the PC version.[3]

Reviewing the Halloween version of the game, one reviewer at Slide to Play said that the game was hard, and that they "wondered why the game was not an in-app purchase for the original game". When the game was updated to Angry Birds Seasons in December, he said that he liked the idea of the Season's Greetings levels being like an advent calendar, with one kevel being added per day. He concluded saying that the game was a "Must Have" and that people who liked the original Angry Birds will be "pleased with Angry Birds Seasons".[4] Similarly, Chris Buffa from Modojo rated the game 5/5 and wrote that "Angry Birds Seasons is both addictive and challenging, and you'd be crazy not to pony up the cash and download it ASAP".[5]

Trivia

  • Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's Day are the only three holidays to be represented in Angry Birds Seasons more than once. The summer holiday has appeared more than once, but it is in completely different settings from a picnic to Atlantis, to a continent, a volcano island and then a camp, while Spring events also differ (Go Green, Get Lucky, Easter Eggs, Cherry Blossom, Abra-ca-Bacon and finally Marie Hamtoinette).
  • Season 2013 is the shortest season that has 2 episodes, Abra-Ca-Bacon and Arctic Eggspedition.
  • Since Haunted Hogs, every "Level Failed" screen has a different screen. The only exceptions are South Hamerica (with Ham Dunk's) and Fairy Hogmother (with Marie Hamtoinette's). Pig Days' Level Failed screen shares the same one as the level's backgorund the level has.
  • The Ham Dunk update was the last version to have an icon featuring the classic designs. Starting with On Finn Ice, the designs from Angry Birds Toons would be used instead.
    • However, Marie Hamtoinette, Summer Camp and the two Piggywood Studios updates would have the designs from the Angry Birds Movie on the app icons.
  • The Arctic Eggspedition update was the last one to feature the characters in their classic style on the loading screens. Starting with South Hamerica, they would have their designs from Angry Birds Toons on the loading screens, however only Marie Hamtoinette, Summer Camp and the Piggywood Studios updates would use the designs from The Angry Birds Movie.
