Angry Birds creators new game Amazing Alex hits the Play Store

In case you haven't heard, Rovio Mobile is wandering into other aspects of gaming and leaving the flying birds and angry pigs behind. Today they've released their first game without those Angry Birds and it's called Amazing Alex. With a similar physics-based gameplay this puzzle game has some huge potential, although I doubt we'll see Amazing Alex plush toys for sale like we do those Angry Birds -- but who knows.

Angry Birds theme park set to open in UK this summer

This extremely popular and hit mobile game is also a popular movie, in space, and now a theme park. Angry Birds are everywhere and in the UK it's about to get even bigger. This will actually be the second of its kind, but later this summer the UK will be opening their very own Angry Birds theme park. It will even offer exclusive levels for all the fans. Can Temple Run be next please?

The birds are back in town: Angry Birds Heikki landing in June

The Angry Birds are back (from outer Space) or at least they will be come June 18th. That's the day Rovio has pegged for "Angry Birds Heikki", another themed version of the ever-popular mobile game. The birds are once again dipping into the sponsorship pool, as the title references Formula 1 race car driver Heikki Kovalainen from Finland. Rovio is based in Finland, so naturally they're expressing some national pride.

Angry Birds Space breaks records with 50 million downloads

Angry Birds Space is popular. That statement is something akin to "rock is hard" on the scale of most obvious things ever said, but a little specificity is useful: Rovio claims that the sequel to the smash hit Angry Birds has been downloaded 50 million times since it was released last month. That makes Angry Birds Space the fastest-growing ("selling" isn't really appropriate here) mobile game of all time. The stat takes into account downloads on Android and iOS.

Angry Birds Space adds ten levels – Simpsons could be next

Angry Birds fanatics, check the Google Play Store for an update today - Angry Birds Space has added ten new levels to its ice-themed "Fry Me To The Moon" zone. That's great, but there's something more interesting in the update - a glimpse at the next zone. The unraveling package shows one of the pigs munching on a galactic donut - one that looks remarkably like the one featured in the marketing for The Simpsons Movie back in 2007.

Angry Birds Space downloaded 10 million times in just three days

If you haven't heard that Rovio's released an update to its Angry Birds franchise yet, congratulations: you've managed to avoid online, print, television (both cable and local) and word-of-mouth news for the last few days. And you haven't been to Seattle. But just about everyone else knows that Angry Birds Space is now available for download, because they've been playing with zero-gravity avians all weekend. Across iOS and Android platforms, the game has been downloaded an incredible 10 million times already.

Angry Birds hang with NASA astronaut for a Space physics lesson

If you haven't heard the first true sequel to Rovio's smash hit Angry Birds is coming later this month, you must have been hiding inside a exogorth. To explain the physics behind the new Angry Birds Space, Rovio employed the assistance of someone who ought to know: NASA astronaut Don Pettit, currently living on the International Space Station. With the help of an Angry Birds keychain, a green balloon, a bungie cord and no gravity, he explains some of the features we're likely to see in Angry Birds Space when it launches on March 22nd.
