Angry Birds is arguably one of the best online and mobile device games developed in the recent times. The popularity of this game can be attributed to its simplicity in playing yet complexity of the many levels one has to progress to and the comical story and characters. Every now and then, Rovio, the developers of Angry Birds game, release different themes of the game but the gameplay is often the same – birds, albeit different kinds of birds, against pigs. Today though, Rovio is teasing a new kind of game still involving birds, but this time a racing game dubbed Angry Birds GO!
We have no solid information regarding the new game but based on the less-than-10-second teaser released by Rovio, this may just be a perfect time killing game that adds a twist to the popular catapult game. If the new game will present the same comical story and characters as the original Angry Birds then it may just be the next big game especially on mobile devices including tablets and smartphones. Angry Birds GO! will be the 6th game in the series after Original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, Space, Star Wars and Angry Birds Friends.
According to Guardian online, Rovio is working on the new game and will be releasing it ‘later in 2013’. We can speculate on what the game will be about based on an entry on Rovio’s blog that ‘birds and piggies are getting ready for their most thrilling and action-packed game yet’. Now we know the new game will most likely feature the same characters in the current Angry Birds – perhaps with a few modifications and additions. The post further reads ‘All your favorite characters are returning for a brand new title that will bring you closer to piggy island than ever before. It is Angry Birds, but not as you know it’.
