Rovio Hosting $0.99 Sale on HD Titles Through Google Play

angry birds star wars

Today, you can go grab the HD versions of three big titles from Rovio, including Angry Birds Star Wars, Angry Birds Space, and Amazing Alex. With HD, you will notice a few more details here and there in terms of looks and overall aesthetics of the gameplay. No telling how long the sale will last, so if you have to buy these games, I guess now would be the time.

Anyone loving the new levels on Star Wars?

    Anyone know if the AB Star Wars HD version allows the in game purchase of ad removal like the free version? From reviews it sounds like the HD version used to be ad free, so maybe it is a bug with the last update that ads are showing? I finally started playing ABSW and was going to buy the ad removal in the free version but I could deal with the extra $1 to do HD + ad removal. I’m not paying $1 to find out if it allows that purchase though.

      Ok, not sure where people are seeing ads. On Free, I get ads as soon as I load the game. Picked up HD and there is no ad-free option in purchases, but I also didn’t get hit with an ad when it loaded or I loaded a level. If you’re talking about when you hit the three dots “menu” key, they’ve always had ads in that spot, pay versions or not, on their other titles.

    I really like the Angry Birds series of games, but I hate how Rovio puts them on the Market. I already own and have Angry Birds Space Premium on my tablet and it looks great. Now they have Angry Birds Space HD for sale. Is the HD version Premium? You would think that the HD version would be bigger, but looking at the package sizes in the market it says that the Premium one is 47M and the HD one is 27M. I am half tempted to buy the HD one just to save 20M on my Nexus 7, or does it actually use separate downloadable content and end up taking more space? Someone please explain this to me.

    Is the HD version any/much better than the “premium” or “free” versions? I know the HD still has the Ads but is screen resolution really that noticeable? I’ve installed the non-HD versions on my GNote 10.1 tablet and to be honest they look fine.

    Any way to make StarWars HD
    compatible with Moto Razr?

    • JoshGroff

      I doubt it, their HD versions are made for tablets IIRC.

      • BSweetness

        No they’re not. They work on many phones as well.

        • JoshGroff

          Yeah, I just checked, the G-nex can play the HD version of Star wars, but not space, but the Rezound can’t play either. I don’t know what their reasoning for including some phones is, but whatever.

    Awesome. I’m in.. because I wasn’t before!

    Too bad their HD version of Angry Birds Star Wars won’t play on a phone that is actually HD (Droid DNA)….

    • Curtis

      That upset me too. DNA has such a sexy ‘HD’ screen. I still bought it for my Transformer tab though.

      • http://twitter.com/GutterIsATool Chilli

        Yeah. Same here. I’ll still put it on my Transformer.

    • Derek Duncan

      it’ll play on my Note 2

    Sounds like even though you are paying for it, there are still ads. No thanks, rovio.

    • DB Evans

      These aren’t just any ads. You are paying for the privilege of receiving ads that are delivered by Rovio. No other product can offer that exclusivity, only Rovio software can do that!
