It was the must-play game of of the late 2000s, that saw players around the world launching cartoon birds at pigs.
Now, almost 10 years after the original version launched, Angry Birds is back.
Rovio and Resolution Games have launched a new augmented reality version of the game, called Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs.
Kati Levoranta, CEO at Rovio Entertainment, said: “We’ve received a great reaction following the announcement of Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs.
“Now that the game is available globally, we’re excited to see how fans react once they get their hands on it and experience how seamlessly Angry Birds slingshot gameplay translates to augmented reality.”
Like Pokemon Go, the augmented reality features bring the cartoon characters into the real world.
The game is set on the Isle of Pigs – a remote vacation spot full of the infamous green pigs.
Over 50 levels, players are tasked with bombarding the island’s beaches, cliffs and snowy slopes with birds, to destroy the pigs’ structures.
A statement about the game explained: “Viewing the 3D levels through an iPhone or iPad, players can walk 360-degrees around levels to find weaknesses and hidden items, and when they are ready, line up the perfect shot with intuitive onscreen controls – walking in close to get precise, or stepping back to gain a better view of the destruction.”
Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs is free to download now from the App Store. It remains unclear when, or if, its developers plan to launch a version for Android.
