9+ cert, Booyah Inc ,iOS The early bird catches the worm, though in this case the early bird also has to com­plete some chal­lenges and land on the ap­pro­pri­ate tar­get to catch the worm, mak­ing it a slightly more dif­fi­cult task than you’d think. At the heart of it, Early Bird is a sim­ple touch-en­abled game. You swipe to make the bird move, col­lect­ing bees on your way and hopefully land­ing on the tar­get. The closer you get to the cen­tre, the more points you score. Plus those bees help bump up your score. To make things a lit­tle more dif­fi­cult, you have a lim­ited num­ber of swipes per level – when you run out be­fore com­plet­ing the level you’re faced with a sob­bing car­toon bird. If you get the an­gle wrong, you won’t clear the ob­sta­cles prop­erly, leav­ing you too far away from the tar­get to hope that a few bird-hops will get you there. There’s more than 160 lev­els in this colour­ful car­toon style game - more than enough to keep you en­ter­tained for short bursts.
