"They've conquered smartphones and social networks. Next up for the Angry Birds? The final frontier. We've got the exclusive scoop on the next official game in Rovio's blockbuster, bird-flinging franchise: "Angry Birds Space." The game is due to smash into mobile devices on March 22."

The latest installment of the Angry Birds franchise is launching March 22! It will feature space themed game play complete with planets, zero gravity and, of course, birds - including new birds! Are you excited for the newest Angry Birds game?

"Rovio have been working on a little project, well actually it is a big undertaking, which will have all their Angry Birds game sync up to users devices."

Rovio has plans to release a cool new feature by summer for all you Angry Birds fans. They will allow for game synchronization across all your different platforms which means no more starting your game over if you install it on another device. And the synchronization will not only apply to Android but to all the platforms that Angry Birds is available on. So no starting over if you currently play on an iPad and switch to your super awesome Google Tab!

Angry Birds Paid Editions to Launch Exclusively in Amazon's App Store

Posted by Kevin Jackson in "Android Software" @ 09:00 AM

"Angry Birds Rio is coming to Android soon, but not the Android Market. The next installment of one of the best Android games will launch exclusively in the Amazon Appstore . . . . Exactly when that launch takes place is unknown. Amazon says only that the Amazon Appstore will open “very soon.” Considering that the Angry Birds Rio animated movie hits theaters April 15, I’m guessing early April would be great for a movie tie-in promotion."

This is quite a coup for the Amazon Appstore. Angry Birds is one of the most popular apps out there, with over 100 million downloads on all platforms and 30 million on Android, alone. This also hints at a possible release date for the Appstore itself, which has been a source of speculation for some weeks now.
According to an update to the linked article, it looks like we'll also be seeing paid versions of the original Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons in addition to the new Rio edition, all exclusive to the Appstore. Does this mean that Android users will finally have access to the Mighty Eagle enhancement, as well? It will be interesting to see what the conversion rate is for users switching to the paid version of the currently free, ad-support versions of the first two games.
So, two bits of exciting news here; a new Angry Birds app and the Amazon Appstore launching soon. Are you excited about this? What will a competitor to the Android Market mean for Android users? Is this proof of the fragmentation of the Android world, or proof of its openness? Will you hardcore Angry Birds users be updating to the paid version of the app? Let us know at the "Discuss" link.


UPDATE: An update on Rovio's Twitter account says that the Rio edition will be launching on March 22nd. It looks like we won't have much longer to wait for the Amazon Appstore.

Angry Birds Seasons Goes Green

"Peter Vesterbacka, the "Mighty Eagle" at Rovio just announced during their GDC panel that Angry Birds St. Patricks Day is coming soon as part of Angry Birds Seasons."

Green is coming to Angry Birds Seasons! And I don't mean the eco-friendly movement (although that would be nice), but instead that the game will be adding a St. Patrick theme to their ever changing addictive wonder just in time for the green themed holiday. So go grab yourself a green beer and get destroying!

"The ever popular puzzle game Angry Birds just got updated to version 1.51, and it seems to be a pretty major new release from the folks at Rovio Mobile in snowy Finland, Scandinavia."

Rovio has released an update for their super popular Angry Birds game. The 1.5 version includes 30 new levels, a toggle for lower end devices, and a wild west themed portion. Hopefully with this new update, users with less graphic intensive devices can enjoy the game as well. And watch for the Angry Birds commercial during the Super Bowl!
