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

Posted by on December 11th, 2014
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

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.

You Can Grab Hearthstone’s First Expansion, Goblins vs Gnomes, Right Now

Posted by on December 9th, 2014
iPad Only App - Designed for iPad

Hearthstone is, well, kind of popular. So it’s a bit of a surprise that it took as long as it did for the first expansion to roll out. Still, Goblins vs Gnomes is a welcome sight all the same.

The expansion centers around the titular groups of diminutive tinkerers, and it adds (what else?) a fair number of new cards – including the brand new “Mech” minion type, which can apparently be quite powerful when you use several of them together. These new cards are available to draft in the Arena, or you can buy them in packs from the shop. A new appropriately-themed board is also available, and Spectator Mode is finally up and running for those times when you’d rather study other players’ techniques instead of watching your Murlocks get squashed (for a change).

The Goblins vs Gnomes expansion is live now, and you can download Hearthstone for free whenever you feel like checking it out. And we both know you feel like checking it out.

The weather outside is turning frightful, and it’s not faring much better in whatever land Carcassonne is set in. But the indigenous meeples’ loss is our gain as TheCodingMonkeys plan to release Carcassonne Winter Edition this month.

The expansion includes a secretive new character (maybe a yeti? I’ll go with yeti. I know the image file is called “gingerbreadman.” I’m still calling it a yeti), new cards, a “new gameplay mechanic” (most likely tied in with what I’ll continue to assume is a yeti), and tons of snow. Seriously, there’s snow everywhere in the Winter Edition. Even on the buttons and menus.

We don’t know how much the Winter Edition expansion will cost, but if previous expansions are any indication it’s probably going to be between $0.99 and $2.99. Carcassonne Winter Edition will be available as an in-app purchase on December 17.
