The Birdcage 2

Magical Creatures

VIEW

Solve puzzles, free birds. Like its predecessor, The Birdcage 2 turns a heartwarming premise into mind-bending fun.

Each level starts with a bird locked inside a metal cage. Want the key to set it loose? You’ll need to figure out a few conundrums.

The next step in this phoenix puzzle: Raise each column using the buttons shown in the shape chart (upper left).

Freeing an owl early on is as easy as arranging tiles, sliding levers, and stacking blocks in the right order. An elegant hint system shows you the answer to any puzzle in the game, so you can’t get stuck.

You’ll find plenty of challenges later on, though, especially in The Birdcage 2’s multiple expansion packs. These add tons of intricate mazes and devious number puzzles—even swapping avian captives with wee dragons.

To see hidden objects, just cast a Reveal spell with your handy wand.

For a closer look at these critters, hop into augmented reality mode at any time. Walking around a cage sitting in your kitchen makes all those buttons and dials feel larger-than-life—and it’s that much sweeter when you open a door and a prisoner flies free.
