First at all, don't expect to download, install and play. Once you install it you have to start an additional heavy update download that can take fairly ten or twenty minutes via wifi. You are forewarned.
In exchange, when we thought that it'd be rather difficult to give Angry Birds any more significant twist, here there's Princess Punt. Mechanics are similar to the Birds' about angle and strength, but enemies and scenarios are more varied and there's a simple RPG element that really improves the gaming experience. As you advance stage over stage, you have to equip your hero with new weapons and learn new abilities. Somewhen not too often, massive final bosses show themselves and, if you defeat them there'll be a nice treasure to be looted. If you were defeated you should choose between restarting the whole level or purchase a new chance keeping the items obtained and the damage dealt.
There are even more features that make Princess Punt different from its competitor. Every single stage has five difficulty levels to choose among, you can select the order your teammates are kicked and every of them has a special ability, you can play coins in a slot machine in order to earn gold and prizes, hints are shown every time you move between menu screens and stages and you can share specific feats achieved. All of this makes that this game also incorporates crucial strategy elements.
On the other hand, translation is a little bit odd, gameplay is slow, asks for sharing too often and 'nowloadings' (as are ironically called) are too long. Game's too heavy and though there are hints everywhere, gameplay can be somewhat misleading in the early stages of game.
It's a great game, with many many options, humor, chance, bravery, a lot of stages, tactics, items, cannibal acorns and awesome bosses...the only big, main flaw are those heavy, cumbersome and extremely bothering loadings every time you tap anything before or after each battle.
