At the beginning of 2019, there was a double whammy of immersive Angry Birds content from Rovio Entertainment and Resolution Games, Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs and Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs. The latter only came to iOS devices at the time. Today, that changes with an Android version due to be released today.
Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs is still very much the same experience iOS users have known for the past six months, utilising the power of AR so that players can physically walk around those pig structures looking for weaknesses. Android players can also rely on the same trusty characters like Red and his mates, offering different strategic bonuses.
It’s worth remembering that as an AR videogame, Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs can be resized to suit a players environment. Only have a small tabletop, no problem, enjoy a tiny game of Angry Birds AR. Have a whole living room or more, why not scale things up. As you’ll probably know, structures can hide various goodies that aren’t always plainly obvious on first glance. Those green pigs can be hidden and so can useful TNT boxes. Being able to fully explore these 3D buildings at any size and angle should help to uncover their secrets.
Android players will have 78 levels to challenge them, making their way up to party city through the island’s jungle, desert, and frosty hideout areas. “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,” said Sami Ronkainen, Creative Director, Extended Reality at Rovio Entertainment in a statement.
“Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs really illustrates the beauty of AR, allowing players to bring their favourite feathered friends into their own environments,” adds 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.”
