Angry Birds Transformers trailer demonstrates why Rovio's new game will make me homeless

Angry Birds Transformers trailer demonstrates why Rovio's new game will make me homeless

If you're lucky enough to be attending San Diego Comic-Con then you might have already seen the new trailer for Angry Birds Transformers. If you're stuck at home, at school, or even worse, at work, then never fear, because you can see the new video here. The video shows off a CGI render of various Angry Birds as Transformers, running through the environment and battling piggy enemies. Astrotrain, Optimus Prime, and Megatron all make an appearance, and they seem to be fighting on the same side too, which is neat. What's not so neat is that this new trailer also shows off the new TelePods, which you'll be able to scan and subsequently bring new characters into your game. Since I'm a gigan…


Hands-on with Angry Birds Go!'s Multiplayer Update 1, in which all is not quite what it seems

Hands-on with Angry Birds Go!'s Multiplayer Update 1, in which all is not quite what it seems

I've always said I like Angry Birds Go!, even when it's meant receiving death threats. It's a great kart racer, and though it has its faults, they're minimal. However, even I was wondering why multiplayer wasn't included when it was originally released back in December 2013. Rovio is fixing that with the first part of its big multiplayer update for the game, meaning that races with real people are now possible in Angry Birds Go!. Or are they...? It's not quite as black and white as that, as I explain below...…

The Angry Birds are going to South Hamerica in the latest Seasons update

Those Angry Birds are at it again, this time with another huge update to Angry Birds Seasons. This latest embiggening of the aggressive avian’s adventures sends the flock to South Hamerica to take on 24 new levels. These new missions have you firing your birds over mountains to try and stop the evil piggies from stealing treasure. The mountain range - probably called the Hamdes - is filled with ancient statues, relics, and rope bridges for you to smash your way through as you attempt to bring down the savage swine by solving the game’s physics-based puzzles. The 24 standard levels are accompanied by three bonus stages, providing you are skilled enough to unlock them. Angry…


Angry Bird Transformers will have you looking for robots in the skies

Angry Bird Transformers will have you looking for robots in the skies

With a new movie on the horizon, Transformers fever is about to strike again. To really make the most of this Hasbro has joined forces with Rovio to create Angry Birds Transformers. This partnership means that - like Angry Birds Star Wars - Angry Birds Transformers will be both a game and a toy line.  In keeping with this Hasbro has revealed its line of ‘Telepod’ toys, due for release later this year. These will take a similar path to Activision’s Skylanders series, letting you transport your toys into the game. However, whether Angry Birds Transformers will operate using similar near field communication technology and if it will require an additional peripher…


Angry Birds Epic Review

Review Rovio Entertainment Ltd By Alex Beech, 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Angry Birds Epic Review

At this point the Angry Birds are more than just feathery projectiles in a physics puzzler. They have become icons that can leap into any medium they choose. Like Mario before them, their first step was into the world of kart racing, and now they have progressed to a strategy RPG with the turn-based Angry Birds Epic. To keep things easy for genre first-timers, Epic does away with exploration of similar titles. Instead it adopts a map that will be familiar to free-to-play fans, with fi…

Rovio's avian RPG Angry Birds Epic will fly onto iPhone and iPad this Thursday

Rovio's avian RPG Angry Birds Epic will fly onto iPhone and iPad this Thursday

Feather-filled RPG spin-off Angry Birds Epic was soft-launched in Canada and New Zealand back in March. Now, three months later, it is set to arrive on App Stores worldwide this Thursday. Angry Birds Epic takes Rovio’s iconic cast of irate avians and thrusts them into a tactical turn-based game reminiscent of a JRPG. Think Final Fowl-tasy, and you are on the right track. The birds have all been redesigned to suit the game’s medieval world, and act as a shorthand for their combat abilities. The red bird is covered in armour to show its new role as a powerful knight, while the yellow bird dons a pointy hat to demonstrate its magical abilities. Individual battles are…

Collect 1,000 coins in the Angry Birds Star Wars II Galactic Giveaway

Angry Birds Star Wars II has just received the new Galactic Giveaway update, scattering 1,000 coins of in-game currency throughout the game. The coins have been hidden throughout Angry Birds Star Wars II’s existing levels, so you're going to have to revisit stages if you want to find all 1,000. Once collected, the coins can be used to permanently unlock more of the game's cast from the store. The inclusion of a collectable currency actually solves one of the few complaints we had about Angry Birds Star Wars II, when we reviewed it last year, by easing its reliance on in-app purchases. This Galactic Giveaway is not limited to coins, however. Carbonite Rewards add another w…
