There may be a twist in the tail for the Angry Birds saga later this year – flipping the bird and putting play in the POV of those pesky porkers!
Fellow tech site Pocket-lint dropped the bombshell that sometime before Christmas Rovio will release its next Angry Birds game and for the first time we get to aid the plight of the pigs getting involved in their egg stealing ways. The game sounds like it will be a mirror of the familiar games we’re already addicted to on Android smartphone and tablets, Apple iPhone and iPad, as well as BlackBerry devices – and will put the pigs in the ‘pult.
Just like the nippy yellow bird, the big red bird and the black bomber bird, each pig will have its own unique strength and abilities to topple the structures and platforms which this time will be protecting the birds themselves for a bacon bashing!
Strategy puzzle game Angry Birds has huge worldwide appeal with over one-billion apps downloaded across mobile platforms in just over two years – and how could we ignore the massive crossover media assault into the social web, the toy market with a movie and animated series on the way. Can we really imagine similar success for a pig-based spin-off?
Will you sympathise with the peevish Pigs – or do your allegiances lie with the Angry Birds?
