For the first time in six years, Rovio has launched a sequel to its incredibly popular Angry Birds title, which incidentally surpassed 500,000,000 downloads last year. The new game goes by the name of Angry Birds 2 and bundles a plethora of new levels, characters and tournaments for us to enjoy.
Rovio has flown a new game onto the Google Play Store, Angry Birds Fight!, which was originally only available in Asian markets. The new title is a “match-3 frenzy” puzzle game, where you can challenge strangers and friends in real-time.
There’s a pretty good chance that you’ve probably played at least one game in the Angry Birds franchise, whether it was on your smartphone, tablet, Roku, Xbox, Playstation, smart TV, I could go on, but I’m sure you get the picture already. Angry Birds is available on almost any platform you could wish. Never one to stand still, Rovio has shown off an Angry Birds demo on Samsung’s Gear VR headset at the Rock in Rio festival that was recently held in Las Vegas.
Angry Birds Fight has just ventured into the Play Store for Asia Pacific countries. The game was initially limited to Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, so it’s good to know that Rovio is expanding availability to other regions as well. Read more
Rovio’s addictive Angry Birds Go has now received a new update which brings forth a Party Mode feature, allowing multiple users to connect and play the game together. This can be done between two devices that are connected to the same WiFi network. Read more
The Angry Birds franchise is one that just runs and runs, with no end in sight to the amount of punishment dished out to the dastardly piggies by the fearsome birds. This time, Rovio is dipping into the bubble shooter genre, with the return of Stella and her friends in Angry Birds Stella Pop! We have more details, a gallery, press release, video and download link after the break.
Rovio is once again celebrating the Chinese New Year with a variety of new additions to several of their game titles. Just in China, Angry Birds has seen close to a half billion downloads, so it should be no surprise that Rovio wants to join in celebrating the Year of the Goat. According to Rovio’s SVP and COO of Games, David Byrne,
“Rovio has been a great fan of Chinese New Year since 2012 when we developed a Year of the Dragon update for Angry Birds Seasons. We enjoy seeing fans around the world partake of a unique celebration that has its origins in China.”
The Angry Birds franchise will never fade away. Why? Because just when there seem to be no ideas left, Rovio shows that there is more. The latest game is done with the Transformers franchise. Angry Birds Transformers unleashes Autobirds onto your device to protect Piggy Island from the EggBots. Fortunately, the Deceptihogs join forces with players to fight the EggBots. The game is full of animated chaos. And for the first time ever, the arms and legs are featured because it is necessary when transforming.
So Angry Birds meets Transformers. Are you excited? It is certainly an entertaining combination.

Today, the Angry Birds franchise takes a step into a new direction. In the Play Store and Amazon Appstore, Rovio’s new Angry Birds Stella is ready to be downloaded. Stella and her friends Dahlia, Poppy, Willow and Luca all set out to protect Golden Island as Bad Princess Gale and her pigs attempt to take control. Each of these characters have their own unique abilities to take advantage of across more than 120 levels.
Later this year, a plethora of Angry Birds Stella content will arrive. ToonsTV will carry a television series with thirteen episodes. This series will directly relate to this game. Books and other products from Hasbro will take things even further to merge digital and physical experiences.
Angry Birds Stella is completely free to play and enjoy, but there are in-app purchases to enhance the experience.
