When Rovio was first founded back in 2003, few would have believed that their Angry Birds franchise would become as popular as it is today.
They have come along way since then and, with the release of Angry Birds: Star Wars yesterday, check out how Rovio stack up against competitor casual gaming giant Zynga with this fun infographic.
It’s been a while since we have seen a full game from Rovio on our mobile phones. The last game that was a full release was Angry Birds Rio which was a based of the movie released at the time called “Rio”. But one cannot say that Rovio does not keep their games updated as seasons practically becomes a new game every time a holiday runs around and we are introduced to a new bird every couple of months. But now Rovio has announced the new game that will keep you glued to your phone for a hours which is Angry Birds Space! Part of the angry birds website has teased at this game with a slingshot in space which makes it pretty obvious, not to mention the image above. We can only hope that Wheatley is the next angry bird…
This year’s Gadget Show Live Gaming Zone was in a whole other hall to accommodate for the extra space, as well as the food hall, but there was still plenty to see.
The part the GTN crew found most interesting was the 18+ zone, which was hidden away in a big white tent, and was also where the Duke was hiding. Inside the mysterious tent, you could not only actually get to play a small piece of Duke Nukem Forever, but you were also able to get free exclusive T-shirts and badges.
As a game, it was quite fun, but wasn’t really enough to come up with a verdict and there wasn’t really anything that you won’t have already seen on YouTube, but it was still something to play the game if just to know for sure that it’s real – and trust me, it IS real.
