Last week, Rovio teased an image that lead us to believe there would be some type of Star Wars and Angry Birds themed goodness. This morning, we now know it is a full game and there will be a host of other swag such as animations and toys for kids. Set for November 8, Angry Birds Star Wars could possibly let players choose between the Rebellion and the Empire. Naturally, everything has some sort of bird or pig reference tied in. (more…)
This morning, Rovio is has many folks excited with the above image they released to their Twitter feed. As you can see, that bird is carrying a light saber, the favored weapon of the Jedi whom exist in the world of Star Wars. In the tweet, Rovio links to their Tumblr, which gives instructions for people to meet at Toys R Us at Times Square in New York on October 8th.
So, could Rovio be just making a toy line? I wouldn’t see them stopping there, as it wouldn’t shock me to see an add-on to Angry Birds Space, or possibly a whole new game called Angry Birds Star Wars. That would sell. We’re just days away fom Oct. 8, so we’ll keep you posted.
It’s official. News of the century. This morning, Rovio has announced that the spin off of Angry Birds called, Bad Piggies, will launch on multiple platforms including Android on September 27. I have a good feeling about this game. I am hoping that instead of sending the pigs smashing through things, that we get to build structures that can withstand a bird barrage. That would be a nice change of pace.
NASA and Rovio have become best buddies with the launch of Angry Birds Space, and with the latest update, NASA is looking to the Birds to save the Mars Curiosity Rover from those pesky pigs. The update, now live in the Play Store, adds 20 levels of the Birds flying around the Red Planet looking to get the rover back from the evil pigs.
The game also adds volcanos and meteors as things to avoid on your way to smashing up pigs, adding to the already diverse maps in the game. There are even hidden rovers and landers for you to find on the red planet that unlock special levels and help to “discover more about the NASA missions.” If you are a die-hard Angry Birds fan, don’t miss this new region of space to play in.
The NFL just took a wacky turn for the crazier this year. Teams have fallen apart, come together with trades and draft picks have been flying everywhere. Now that we’re into the training camp stage of the off-season, teams are looking to sure up their rosters for the year ahead and the Philadelphia Eagles have just made an unprecedented move, signing 5 undrafted free agents. Press conference video after the break. (more…)
Fans of Angry Birds can go pick up the newest Seasons update which features the awesome Piglantis levels. What’s neat about Piglantis is the addition of the water levels that add a new sense of physics, just like Angry Birds Space. You dive the birds into the water where they become weightless, and as they near the surface, they pick up speed and come flying out of the water. It’s a really neat update which is good way to freshen up your AB skills. Go grab it. (more…)
The OG version of Angry Birds has just received an update to add 15 brand spanking new levels. They are called the “surf & turf” levels, so expect to see some sand castles and bring your sun screen. On a separate note, did Angry Birds Space make anyone happy? I thought it was actually pretty intriguing and look forward to future updates for that game.
