ungrateful birds 3-usq7jdgb.png

What empowers a thankless hero? The will to do good despite having rocks dropped on them? A desire to see all go free even if they're going to try to kill them once they're free of their cages? Either way, you'll need to hold onto that drive as you free caged birds in Ungrateful Birds, as the jerks sure make life difficult considering you're only trying to help.

Maybe the birds really like their cages. Maybe they get roughed up when you break their cage open with a thrown rock. I don't know, but it doesn't matter. Your job in Ungrateful Birds is to bust birds out of their cages with thrown rocks, and those birds really, really don't appreciate it. Every freed bird quickly turns on you, grabbing the nearest rock and trying to drop it on your head. This is not good for your health, but your love of free birds will keep you going.

Every stage gets a little bit more hectic with every freed bird, so you'll eventually have to be very careful in your approach to keep your skull from being split by these unhappy birds. Still, don't let their mean nature get you down. A bird is meant to fly free, even if it does want to bash your brains out with a rock, right?

Maybe?
