Autobirds Roll Out! Rovio has Announced an Angry Birds/Transormers Crossover

Posted by Jessica Fisher on June 16th, 2014

Rovio Entertainment and Hasbro, Inc. are combining one of the most downloaded games world-wide with one of the most cherished 80s cartoon classics. Angry Birds Transformers roll out! The Autobirds will face-off against the insidious Deceptihogs. From the video it looks like we can look forward to seeing characters like Redimus Prime and Chucklebee.

Blanca Juti, Chief Marketing Officer of Rovio, said “We’re really excited to combine the iconic Transformers universe with the quirky world of Angry Birds. This mash-up is going to appeal to those who grew up with the brand in the 80s, as well as fans of the brand today. People are going to love it!”

Later this year they will also be introducing Angry Birds Transformers TELEPODS. The toys will allow players to add characters and upgrade powers in the game.

Look out for these ro-birds in disguise later this year.

Rovio Announces Angry Birds Stella - and That's Pretty Much it

Posted by Rob Rich on February 13th, 2014

Today Rovio has pulled the curtain back on their latest project to reveal... another curtain. Angry Birds Stella is going to be a game set in some area of the Angry Birds world we've yet to see, and it's going to be spread out over several different forms of media. We're talking games, cartoons, toys, etc.

About the only other bit of info that can be gleaned from the announcement is that Rovio is trying to up the serious in this one. “Angry Birds Stella is breaking the mold by introducing strong, passionate characters who really stand for something, while adding plenty of action and reality into the mix," says Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio Entertainment, in the press release.

I dunno, it sounds kind of like The Real World: Angry Birds to me.

Amidst all the holiday sales and out-of-nowhere releases, it's important to remember that the App Store still picks one app or game out of the crowd to be featured as its App of the Week. And to get a price drop to zero dollars for the duration. This week, they've chosen Angry Birds Star Wars II.

In his review back in September, our own Blake Grundman said, "The Force is strong with this one. This IS the game we’re looking for." Seems like more than enough of a reason to check it out for free, right?

Posted by Rob Rich on October 15th, 2013

The birds are back (again)! Not content with simply hurtling avian critters into pork-filled structures, Rovio has changed things up significantly for their next offering. Angry Birds Go! is a fully 3D kart racer featuring a bunch of recognizable series characters, loads of special powers, and upgradable vehicles. Yes, you read that correctly; it's a kart racer.
