After what seemed like forever of hyping and trailer releases, it’s November 8, 2012. That can only mean one thing for Android fans – it’s Angry Birds Star Wars Day! I’ve played through a few of the levels already and I have to say, I am happy. The soundtrack is exactly what I was hoping for. There are plenty of lightsaber “woosh” sounds and the overall look of the game pays mighty homage to the series that I love so very much. Now the only problem is how do I convince Kellex that I’m sick and watch the movies instead of work? (more…)
This will be the last time we talk about Angry Birds Star Wars until it launches, I promise you that. This morning, Rovio released the officially official launch trailer for the game that is set to release on November 8. They have hyped this game more than any other game I can remember, releasing teaser trailer, after gameplay trailer, after more gameplay trailers. (more…)
The moment we have all been waiting for – gameplay from Angry Birds Star Wars! Not to sound too delusional, but for the first time in some 3 years, I find myself at least slightly interested in an Angry Birds game. Wookiee bird? Lightsabers? 4-legged walkers? If that poster above isn’t enough to get you worked up, then at least give the clip below a shot. (more…)
We’ll be some of the first to admit that the Angry Birds series has lost its luster. There are too many variations of it, too many tie-ins to mainstream products, and too much in-your-faceness for our liking. Our feelings may have changed slightly when we saw the teaser for Angry Birds Star Wars, though. A part of us (Tim mostly) became instantly excited again. There’s just something about Star Wars combined with a silly cartoon or children’s product that amounts to pure gold. (Look at Legos?)
In today’s teaser, the Millennium Falcon makes its first appearance, equipped with a slingshot. How can that not get you excited for its November 8 release?
If you still have the original Angry Birds game installed on your device, you can pick up the newest update that brings a bit of Bad Piggies to the game. Included in the update is a pack of 15 piggy-inspired levels as well as power ups. These power ups have their own unique abilites such as Sling Scope, King Sling, and Super Seeds, and more.
As for me, I’m waiting on Angry Birds Star Wars.
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.
