Can you believe that it has been 10 years since the first Angry Birds game was released by Rovio? As more and more versions of the game popped up, the Angry Birds soon became a marketing juggernaut with the easily recognizable characters found on cartoons, clothing, board games, television sets, and even on movie screens where they starred in two full-length motion pictures.
Original Angry Birds game returns to App Store and Google Play Store
“Angry Birds has touched so many people and has been a large presence in mobile gaming,” the executive noted. “After hearing the outcry from our fans, we just had to find a way to bring Angry Birds back.” The game has been rebuilt from the bottom up allowing owners of newer devices to play while still able to have the original 2012 experience.
Rovio is tossing in for free that swine-destroying foul fowl Mighty Eagle which used to cost 99 cents as an in-app purchase back in the day. If you want to take a nostalgic trip back in time to those carefree days, install the appropriate app and shell out 99 cents, which is how much the game costs. And if you missed the Angry Birds craze when it happened the first time, here is your chance to see what the fuss was all about.
The next bird craze was Flappy Bird
The object of the game is to use the slingshot on the screen to propel one of the birds toward the pigs. The goal in each level is to hit and destroy all of the pigs who are protected by materials such as wood, glass, stone, and other materials. Your attack birds need to destroy the protective structures that the pigs hide behind.
After a while, you’ll get a feel for aiming the slingshot and be able to hit the pigs and their protective materials. And of course, there are plenty of other Angry Birds games in the App Store or Google Play Store including:
The popularity of Flappy Bird was never in doubt. After the game was removed from the Play Store, some Ebay merchants were offering phones with the Flappy Bird game pre-installed for prices as high as $1,499. Bids ran as high as $90,000 for these handsets. Ebay quickly took down all listings of phones that had Flappy Bird pre-installed.
