The first Angry Birds mobile game in augmented reality is now available for free in the Google Play Store
Angry Birds fans, rejoice! The popular mobile augmented reality (AR) game by Rovio Entertainment (ROVIO) and Resolution Games, Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs, is available starting today in the Google Play Store. Now fans can join Red, Chuck, Bomb and the Blues to save the stolen eggs from the greedy green pigs on Android devices!
The game – previously released on iOS – allows fans to mix realities of their physical environment and that of the world of Angry Birds, taking the power of the Angry Birds slingshot into their hands like never before. The game debuts on Android with 78 levels of gameplay, allowing players to see the incredibly realistic characters and entire game overlaid onto a player’s actual environment.
Through the power of AR, players can physically walk around structures overlaid onto objects in their own environment to find weak elements and identify different angles for the best accuracy, as well as uncover hidden surprises in order to take on the green pigs, earn more points and unlock more content. Players can even make the game large or small to fit their space and customize their experience. In the gameplay, players make their way up to party city through the island’s jungle, desert, and frosty hideout, destroying their structures in the most spectacular way to earn maximum stars and retrieve the stolen eggs.
Sami Ronkainen, Creative Director, Extended Reality at Rovio Entertainment, commented: “In this special 10th anniversary year for Angry Birds, it’s awesome that we can offer fans novel ways to enjoy our classic slingshot gameplay. We’re delighted to now make this game available for Android users.”
“Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs really illustrates the beauty of AR, allowing players to bring their favorite feathered friends into their own environments,” said Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games. “Whether they’re at home on a rainy day or at the park or bus stop, players can take the Angry Birds with them wherever they go.”
The game can be downloaded here and is now supported on Android for Google ARCore compatible devices as well as iOS Apple ARKit compatible devices.
