Angry Birds 2 is the biggest game so far in the biggest iOS franchise to date. Mashable has a great list of tips to get you know your birds, know your levels and know your spells. It’s also got some great advice for maximizing your playtime while avoiding in-app purchases. You can see the full list of tricks here. One recommendation is to save your spells for special occasions:

“Spells are a very limited, very valuable resource. Use them sparingly, and never on your first run through a level. Wait until you’re really stumped and tired of throwing yourself at a particular challenge. Once you know what you’re up against, you’re better prepared to trot out the best spell for that situation.”

It’s also worth noting that there’s a secondary way to kill a boss:

“Fans are typically placed in a way that forces you to rethink the way you’re tossing your birds, but they can be especially helpful during boss levels. Remember: you can knock a boss off the screen as an alternative to chipping away at its health. Fans facilitate that.”
