Rovio is all set to launch Angry Birds Star Wars later this week (November 8 to be specific), but before it does, it has one last trailer to push out the door. Last week we given a brief look at the title's gameplay, and today we're getting a longer one. That's right - if you've ever wanted to see what Chewbacca looks like in Angry Birds form, now's your chance.
Rovio took famous clips from the movies and inserted its famous birds into them. Some of them were cute, others were silly, but now its time to cut out the funny business and get down to the nitty gritty: it's time for gameplay, baby!
the scene from A New Hope where Han tells Luke and Obi-Wan about his famous Kessel run, whereas this time, we have Princess Leia asking about the stature of a curious-looking Stormtrooper.
Angry Birds players out there who haven't yet moved onto Bad Piggies, Rovio's latest game, but the studio is trying its hardest to get those fans to pick up the new game. The latest Angry Birds update adds 15 new levels inspired by Bad Piggies, tasking the players with destroying various contraptions like the ones the pigs build in their own game. If you're not familiar with Bad Piggies yet, you will be by the time you're finished playing through the update.
Rovio announced that it will release Angry Birds Star Wars to almost every mobile platform, including our beloved Android devices. According to Rovio, this game will feature gameplay similar to Angry Birds and Angry Birds Space, but with a Star Wars theme. Rovio believes that this is the best Angry Birds game they have ever made. In a line that someone had to say, Peter Vesterbacka, CMO of Rovio said, "The force is definitely strong with this one." Cheesy, but necessary. "People seem to instinctively know what to do when handed a lightsaber or a bird in a slingshot, so this is a natural combination," said Colum Slevin, Vice President and Head of Studio Operations for Lucasfilm. I did not know it was encoded in our DNA to shoot birds out of slingshots, but apparently that is the case. Joking aside, this game is going to sell like crazy. It seems like everything Rovio makes is an instant success, and we expect this to be no exception. Of course, Rovio has also revealed that there will plenty of other merchandise to go along with the game, so if you are looking for a Luke Skywalker Angry Bird plush toy, they will be available soon enough.
Rovio, it looks like it won't be long before the focus is back on Angry Birds. Yesterday, Rovio tweeted a rather dark image of a hooded bird, and at the time, it wasn't immediately apparent what was being teased. Today, Rovio shared a GIF on the Angry Birds Tumblr that cleared everything up.
Google. On the other side of the fence, Apple is still getting a ton of grief for its new Maps app and even apologized for how awful their mapping service is. All we have to say is that it's great to be an Android user right about now.
Just as the prophecies foretold, Bad Piggies is now available on the Google Play Store. The latest game from Rovio gives a new spin on the mind-numbingly popular Angry Birds series, letting players take on the role of the bad guys this time around. Instead of playing as the birds and taking back your stolen eggs from some very stupid pigs, you'll be playing as the pigs, stealing as many eggs as you can while you make your way through 60 different levels.
Rovio's latest creation and the sequel to Angry Birds will be called Bad Piggies. The game will focus on the viewpoint of the evil pigs that we all loathed in previous Angry Bird installments. However, it seems the infamous Angry Birds won't be anywhere to be found. Instead, Bad Piggies will be all about building vehicles and trying to get them from point A to point B with the pigs on board. It's a trial-and-error puzzle game that looks to be on par with Rovio's Amazing Alex.
