The goal is to hit the target in as few shots as possible. With over 80 levels spread across 9 different courses, there is plenty of not golfing to do.

Feed the Birds is a game all about lining birds up with their favorite fruits. You control four toucans with brightly colored beaks.

As the toucans fly through the air, it’s your job to slide them up or down to line them up with the correct fruit. If you miss a fruit or the wrong bird eats it, the game is over.
