Angry Birds Space
Rovio Entertainment is attempting to freshen up their popular Angry Birds franchise by releasing Bad Piggies on September 27. The new game for iOS, Android and Mac devices tells the other side of the Angry Birds' story by allowing fans to play as the pigs.
"There's a lot of empathy towards the lovable enemies from the Angry Birds games, and we've been constantly asked: what about the pigs' side of the story?" said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. "Bad Piggies gives you the chance to play as the second-most-loved characters in the Angry Birds universe, and explore this rich world through their green eyes."
Rovio Mobile Ltd. released the teaser trailer for the next Angry Birds game on Friday. Angry Birds Red Planet is the follow-up to Angry Birds Space which was released earlier this year.
Rovio is also working on a new pig based game in hopes to freshen up the Angry Birds franchise, which surpassed the 1 billion download mark back in May. According to Pocket-Lint, the new game will be played through the perspective of the pigs, rather than the birds. Players will be tasked with defending their eggs from a catapult assault. The game will feature pig and Angry Bird characters with different strengths and skill sets. Angry Birds Space: Red Planet is expected be avilable sometime this fall, and the new pig-based came is expected to land on iOS devices sometime before Christmas.
The not-so-friendly iPhone app Ugly Meter has climbed its way to the top of the app charts recently. It's unknown why the face rating app is so popular, but it's currently listed as the third best selling app after Angry Birds Space and Flick Home Run in the iTunes App Store.
The application scans a persons face before dishing out a 1 to 10 "ugly" rating along with nasty comments like: "Wow you're ugly, is your doctor a vet?". The Daily Mail tested the app's ugly rating ability by using celebrities like Cheryl Cole and Angelina Jolie. Cole scored a 4.2 while Jolie scored a 2.0 along with the positive comment: "You're so hot you make the sun jealous." However, David Cameron (7.0) scored slightly better than Brad Pitt (8.0).
Rovio Mobile Ltd. has released Angry Birds Space version 1.1.0 with 10 new levels of pig popping action! iOS users will receive 20 free space eagles with the update and one additional space eagle for each daily log in. Version 1.1.0 also fixes crash issues in older devices.
Angry Birds Space version 1.1.0 is available now for the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation) and most Android devices (no free eagles for Android users!). The number one mobile game of all time is only $0.99 in the iTunes App Store.
