Ever thought of wanting to take care of birds as pets? Well, with Lil’ Birds, you now have your opportunity to do so! This game allows you to hatch birds, take care of them, gift them, and even sell them to bird collectors.
Lil’ Birds is one of those progressive games where you slowly but surely level up by completing different goals and tasks at hand. Build nests and breed them from eggs and watch them grow inside your ever-growing aviary. You can edit your birds’ names (I’ve been naming them after KPOP idols), have them breed with other birds to get different color birds, and even go into the Lost Forest to play a game of hide-and-seek (though hopefully, your birds won’t get lost after this little adventure).
You can also send your birds to what’s known as the Daily Guest and your neighbors. There, you can pet them and give them treats and watch their happiness meter skyrocket through the roof. Happy birds mean more money and better birds. And with over 5,000 lil’ and cute birds to collect, you’ll never tire of the game.
Each level has different goals to achieve, some of which appear during the level and at the end of the level. Complete the different goals the game has for you and you get some nice rewards, such as “dollar cash”, which can be used to buy better items, feathers (helps you to build nests), and even birds and eggs. Free presents are just so much fun, but of course, because there is no such thing as a free lunch, you have to exert some effort into completing the tasks.
Of course, there is some luck involved. For example, one of the goals for Level 5 states that you must be able to breed an Elegant Red-Yellow Bird and have it in your aviary. Well, that seems easy to do: I just have to breed the Elegant Red-Pink and Elegant Pink-Yellow birds together. That’s where you’re wrong: the hint already tells you that you’ll need to experiment, meaning that you won’t get the color you want on the first go, unless you’re super lucky. It took me a while to pass this stage. Luck indeed. I had none, which only made the process just that more aggravating.
In addition, another task has you petting the bird to make it happy. Well, in order to do so, you need to touch its belly. And it’s quite a chore when you discover that touching its belly isn’t quite easy. I’d be touching the belly with my finger to no avail for a minute or two. No easy touch or anything? Bummer.
The game is on the slow side, so for those itching for some action or adventure, this game isn’t for you. The music is peaceful and the art so cute and chic that you’ll probably fall asleep if you’re not paying attention. By the way, even though there is an option to buy items in the game, I would suggest against it. You can easily get to the higher levels without having to buy anything. But if you’re looking for a free game to play, count your eggs and get hatchin’!
