Angry Birds 2

Rovio Entertainment's official sequel to Angry Birds is now available on the Apple App Store. Angry Birds 2 arrives several years after the original Angry Birds turned the mobile gaming world on its head in 2009. The sequel promises to deliver a "new era of addictive slingshot gameplay with stunning graphics, challenging multi-stage levels, scheming boss pigs and even more destruction".

Rovio has given players the ability to choose which bird they want to fling, adding an extra layer of strategy to the game. Players must choose each bird based on their characteristics to battle through new multi-level stages with harder towers to topple. Players can also use a variety of spells to help them crush the piggies, earn extra birds with the Destruct-O-Meter and call on the Mighty Eagle when they are really stuck.

Other features include improved graphics, multi-stage levels, top-of-the-line animations, an Arena mode to challenge friends, Facebook support and more.

Angry Birds 2 is available for free, with in-app purchases, on the App Store. It supports all devices running iOS 7.0 or later but it is recommended for iPhone 5, iPad 3, iPad mini 2 and iPod Touch 5G or newer.
