Angry Birds Transformers is Now on Android

Temporarily exclusive to iOS, the latest in the Angry Birds franchise from game maker Rovio, Angry Birds Transformers, is now available on Android for free.

The game appears to be a side-scrolling, endless-runner-like blow-em-up affair, with Angry Birds characters being used as Transformers. There are vehicles, upgrades, an option to tag team with friends, and a roster of heroes with unique attacks and abilities that can be unlocked. If you read that a certain way, like I just did, that can only mean one thing – massive in-app purchases. And sure enough, the Google Play listing suggests that there are in-app purchases ranging from $4.99 to $99.  (more…)
