To bring you a bit of Thanksgiving cheer, we’ve selected an App of the Week that combines quirky baby turkeys with the popular match-3 game genre. As the official app of the Free Birds movie, Baby Turkey Trouble is a family-friendly holiday game that stars Tuff Puffs, adorable baby turkeys from the feature film.
When these helpless baby birds get stuck in an oak tree, they need your help to make it to safety. Use your finger to swap the location of birds on a grid and create matches of three or more to score points and unlock power-ups. The more matches you create, the higher your score and the more silly sound effects you’ll enjoy.
By far, the most endearing element of the game was Reel FX’s incorporation of characters’ sound snippets from the movie, voiced by Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson, George Takei and Amy Poehler. If you’re curious to learn more, you can read about the making of Baby Turkey Trouble in last week’s guest piece by Dan Ferguson, head of the digital/interactive group at Reel FX.
