Lives

Lives in Angry Birds 2

Lives are a fundamental element in the Korean version of Angry Birds, Angry Birds POP!, Angry Birds 2, Angry Birds Evolution, Angry Birds Blast!, Angry Birds Match, Angry Birds Dream Blast, Angry Birds POP Blast, and Angry Birds Journey. They can potentially be the most hated element in Angry Birds games. They appear on the top left side of any game. The maximum possible lives without having infinite lives are 5. You can earn unlimited lives for two hours by getting a special offer after making an in-app purchase.

If you have one or more lives, you can play the level. If you fail the level or press the quit button (doesn't happen on Angry Birds 2 and Angry Birds POP! before shooting the first bird/bubble), a life is lost. When you run out of lives, you are not able to play any level and the “Get more lives” message will show up.

Running out of lives

One of the biggest issues almost every Angry Birds game player face is running out of lives. No need to panic, because the following shows several ways to get your lives restored. When you run out of lives, there are some ways to get more lives.

  • Buying more lives. You can buy/refill lives for the required price.
  • Waiting. The basic way to get more lives. Each game you have to wait for 30 minutes to recharge each life. You can get the full set of lives after 2 hours and 30 minutes. In the web version of Angry Birds POP!, the lives are synchronized with the mobile version, so if you have no lives left on the mobile version, there are also none of them on the web.
  • Ask friends. You can ask your friends for more lives.
  • Watch Video. Some games you can claim the offer by watching a short video for one additional live.

However, the players don't want to wait, so there is another way to get lives.

  • Move the device clock forward. You can set your device clock forward to get an instant set of lives. This does not work anymore.

Buying Lives

No matter how many lives you have, you have to spend the same amount of coins/gems/ or golds to refill lives.

Other Appearances

In the Angry Birds Star Wars Weekly Tournament on Facebook the player has five heart-shaped crystals to play tournament levels. In the December 15, 2012 update, you have five crystals, which have the same method as ones in Candy Crush Saga. However, each crystal requires 12 minutes to recharge. The player can spend credits to buy more of them. Note: You can store more than five crystals at a time. You can spend ABSWFCredit × 100 for OldCrystal × 10, and ABSWFCredit × 400 for OldCrystal × 50, or ask friend for one crystal for 24 hours each friend.

However, on April 2, 2013, the crystals are adjusted. Now you have 15 of them instead of 5 and each refills every six minutes, but every game costs one. The player can also send one crystal to the same friend every hour instead of 24 hours. In the shop, you can get a double amount of crystals each purchase.

In Angry Birds Evolution

ABEvolution HP5

In Angry Birds Evolution, Lives return, but as health that is always filled in each level. In order to get more health, the player needs to add birds that have a determined number of health, which is seen in their stats, adding stronger birds will grant more health for the level, specially levels with boss pigs, various enemies or Huge Pigs.

The health is a green bar with a heart symbol on the left, it gets red when the birds are injured and a green part goes away.

The pigs also have health, which is displayed below them when they get injured.

Reception

Due to them limiting the number of tries available which was unseen in previous games, lives have gained negative reception. Justin Davis of IGN.com criticized the need to either pay or wait for lives to regenerate, stating it as one of the numerous steps backward for the series. [1] Erik Kain of Forbes also expressed dissatisfaction with the need to pay to reduce waiting time, stating it as a failure of implementing a paying option in a free-to-play game. [2]
