Angry Birds Epic now available for free on Windows Phone
Rovio's latest instalment in the Angry Birds franchise is an RPG, which is quite different from the physics-based gameplay that has made the series an international hit. Called Angry Birds Epic, the game was soft-launched in Canada, Australia and New Zealand earlier this year, but is available globally now.
Angry Birds Epic follows a free-to-play model that is becoming increasingly popular with mobile game studios. The game follows a turn-based RPG format which sees players battling pigs with a team of birds. Along the way, players can acquire and upgrade weapons, potions and armor, level up and unlock new characters. Users also have access to a crafting engine that allows them to create new parts for use in battle scenarios.

The above two reasons are enough for me to support the game. It being an RPG helps too.
Look at their business model. They pit players against eachother in an online world, then continuously offer to sell both sides more powerful weapons to beat the other guy. MANY FREEMIUM SOFTWARE COMPANIES ARE ARMS DEALERS THAT SELL TO BOTH SIDES!
