Angry Birds Pop 2 takes the bubble shooter game, adds the Angry Birds characters, and updates them for the new Angry Birds movie.

Game play is typical for a bubble shooter: the player aims a colored bubble at a game board and shoots, trying to match their bubble with a same colored bubble on the board. Obstacles in this game pull from the original games by using materials like wood, ice, and stone.

The player also has assistants they can power-up for each level. At the start of the game they have only Red as an assistant. Through the course of successful game-play, the player can unlock new assistants. One of the new updates to this game is the addition of having pigs as possible allies in a level.

This game also has daily quests, piñatas, and the ability to unlock many different birds and pigs. It has in-game ads and purchases. The ESRB rated it E for Everyone and LW4K stands by this rating.


Angry Birds Pop 2 helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Angry Birds Pop 2Focus

Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.

A player needs to use their focus skills in two ways. First, they need to be able to focus on which bubble they want to use and where they are aiming it. If they do not ignore internal and external distractions they will end up bouncing at the wrong angle or not choosing the best placement. Second, they also have to stay focused on the goals of the level. If they don’t use their short-term focus skills to stay on-task, they will use up all their moves without having finished the level.

Self-Control

Managing our actions, feelings, and behaviors.

This game can be difficult when you have to start bouncing bubbles off of walls or choosing the appropriate place to use a special skill. It can also be frustrating when the player opens a piñata and doesn’t get points towards a new character. In both instances, the player is given a great chance to practice self-control. Letting anger or frustration control their emotions will cause them to make poor choices when playing the levels. Making poor choices will keep them from getting cards to spend on piñatas. Overall, if they don’t use their coping and self-control skills, their progress in the game will slow down and even halt.
