Angry Birds Are Invading Other Genres Again. This Time it's Match-3 With Angry Birds Fight!

Posted by Rob Rich on June 12th, 2015

Oh Angry Birds. You're quite possibly the most tenacious flock of oddly-shaped avians the world has ever known. The series has been branching out into things that don't involve hurtling tiny feathered animals into pigs wuite a bit lately, and now Angry Birds Fight! has hit (punf absolutely intended) the match-3 genre.

Angry Birds Fight! looks to be inspired by combat-centric puzzlers akin to Puzzle & Dragons and the quite recent You Must Build a Boat. In other words, rather than matching stuff to earn a high score, you're matching stuff in order to charge up attacks and pluck the tail feathers of your opponents. Fights earn experience, new items, and coins that can be used to buy new items - all in the name of unlocking more birds and customizing your own personal flock. Whether it's in solo challenges or against other players in real time multiplayer, you'll be able to dive in and start puzzle-brawling.

If this somewhat odd departure for the series sounds like your cup of tea, you can download Angry Birds Fight! right now for free.

Angry Birds is Officially Five Years Old Today, and Gets a New User-Created Episode to Celebrate

Angry Birds, the unassuming (at the time) little physics game that later went on to become an empire, has turned five today. And after five years of a somewhat obscene amount of spin-offs and merchandising, and a reported 600+ billion birds being tossed at rickety structures, Rovio is celebrating with a new episode, titled Play the Next Level.

What makes Play the Next Level special is that each of the levels has been created by series fans. Rovio pulled the best of the best from the thousands of entries to give us all 30 all-new stages to enjoy.

They're also celebrating in the real world by hosting a party for a couple thousand local children, and will be giving all babies born in Finland on 12/11 a special edition baby Flock outfit. Because, you know, why not?

If you don't live in Finland you're out of luck with regards to the party and special edition jammies, but you can check out the new Play the Next Level "BirdDay" (ugh) episode right now.

The Weird and Wacky World of Angry Birds Merchandise

Posted by Jennifer Allen on December 4th, 2014

Angry Birds has been around for 5 years this month. The original game has spawned many successful spin-offs - not only via mobile gaming but also on games consoles and PCs. It’s been a phenomenal success story; the kind that few could have accurately predicted. It’s spawned more than just games, though. It’s also given us so many different pieces of merchandise. You could probably fill a house with the stuff. There’s stationery, quilt covers, cuddly toys, and so many other Angry Birds related bits and pieces, both official and unofficial. We take a look at some of the more unusual things you can buy to satisfy your Angry Birds loving needs.

Mmmm, Tasty - Having the Angry Birds for Thanksgiving Dinner

Posted by Nadia Oxford on November 26th, 2014

The very first Angry Birds debuted on iOS back in 2009. When you sit back and tally up the number of Angry Birds games out there and the impact they've had on pop culture as a whole, you just need to ask yourself: "How would the birds taste following a three-hour engagement with a broiler?"

No, seriously. The anniversary of the Angry Birds and American Thanksgiving are in the same neighborhood, date-wise. And while not everyone eats fowl for Thanksgiving (or meat in general, for that matter), Thanksgiving is still synonymous with roasted bird-meat. So let's sit back, loosen our belts, and have a solemn conversation about how the Angry Birds would fare as a main course this holiday season.

Come on, it's worth considering. There are no wings to contend with, no drumsticks - not even any bones if the way they fling themselves around is any indication. The Angry Birds are just big buttery balls of white meat. That said, some probably make for better eating than others. Let's get on with this vital holiday breakdown.
