Angry Birds is an application for the iOS, Windows Phone, Bada, Symbian, webOS, Android and Maemo mobile operating systems. It was released by Rovio Entertainment and made in Helsinki, Finland. The objective of the game is to eliminate pigs and destroy their buildings and structures at the same time. This is done by the birds launching themselves out of a giant slingshot and hitting the pigs' various constructs, henceforth eliminating them. Each level allots the player a certain number of birds, which must be used in the order provided.
Each bird has a different ability, such as being able to boomerang back, splitting into three, or exploding. These abilities are activated by tapping or clicking the screen while the bird is flying. Below is the list of birds along with their real names that have been revealed.

Power-Ups are limited, and if you run out, you must purchase more to have more with these exceptions.
- Slot Machine: In Angry Birds Classic, you can play any level daily to receive a free daily Power-Up from the "Angry Birds Power-Up Slot Machine". Whatever Power-Up you get three in a row in the Slot Machine, that'll be the Power-Up you'll receive. For example, get three Birdquakes in a row in the Slot Machine, you'll receive a Birdquake. Be aware that the Slot Machine goes only ONCE every day, so once you received your free daily Power-Up, you'll have to wait until the next day to receive another Power-Up from the Slot Machine. Unlike the Space Eagles from Angry Birds Space, which are recieved normally after the hour you received one, when the next day comes, if you start any level, the Slot Machine appears anytime.
