Both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game are able to be played with motion controls along with the traditional controllers.

This compilation includes exclusive levels that cannot be found on the original games. The game also contains biographies of each bird, except for Hal (green bird), Bubbles (orange bird), and Stella (pink bird). To ensure that the compilation is considerably up to date with more recent versions of the originally released games, Rovio released downloadable content packs, such as the Anger Management Pack and the Fowl Temper Pack, on select platforms. Anger Management Pack available on December 18, 2012. Fowl Tempered Pack available on March 8, 2013.
In Angry Birds Trilogy the player controls a flock of multi-colored birds that are attempting to retrieve their eggs, which have been stolen by a group of hungry green pigs (on the Angry Birds Rio levels, the birds are trying to get back to their eggs). On each level, the pigs (in Rio, caged birds or marmosets) are sheltered by structures made of various materials such as wood, glass, and stone, and the objective of the game is to eliminate them on the level. Using a slingshot, players launch the birds with the intent of either hitting the pigs directly or damaging the structures, causing them to collapse and kill the pigs. In various stages of the game, additional objects such as explosive crates and rocks are found in the structures, and may be used in conjunction with the birds to kill hard-to-reach pigs.
Most versions of Trilogy support motion controls (or require them, as in the Wii and Wii U versions), where players can use a pointer-based motion control system (such as the Move's Orb or the Kinect sensor's hand tracker) or a touch screen to operate and aim the slingshot. If motion controls are not preferred, the slingshot is instead controlled with an analog stick.
In all versions, except the Wii and Nintendo 3DS versions, it is possible to quickly reset a level by holding down a certain controller button for two seconds.
