With the release of Angry Birds Space just a few days away, now would be a good time to catch up on the phenomenon that is Angry Birds.
First released back in the waning months of 2009 under Chillingo's Clickgamer label, Angry Birds was initially met with warmth from critics such as Pocket Gamer for being a slick and well-made little physics-puzzler.
A few months later, the game exploded. Now you can't walk into a shop without seeing one of those Angry Birds plushies, get through a week without Peter "Mighty Eagle" Vesterbacka saying something ludicrously boastful, or open up the App Store without seeing another half-hearted attempt at dethroning the king.
If you're new to the series, or you're just a fan looking for a way to pass the time until Angry Birds Space comes out (midnight tomorrow, fact fans), we've got you covered.
