Angry Birds is BACK! AR versions of popular game starts in the App Store



It was a game that had to be played at the end of 2000, and which saw players around the world launching cartoon birds on pigs.

Now, almost 10 years after starting the original version, Angry Birds is back.

Rovio and Resolution Games launched a new version of the game, called Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs.

Kati Levoranta, CEO of Rovio Entertainment, said: "After announcing the angry birds AR: Isle of Pigs, we received a great response.

"Now that the game is available around the world, we are thrilled to see how fans react when they get into their hands and experience how smoothly playing Angry Birds brings the game into augmented reality."

Like Pokemon Go, enhanced reality features bring cartoon characters to the real world.

The game takes place on the Isle of Pigs – a remote empty spot full of infamous green pigs.

Over 50 levels, players are tasked with bombing island beaches, cliffs and snowy slopes with birds, destroying pig structures.

The game statement explained: "Viewing 3D levels via iPhone or iPad, players can walk 360 degrees around levels to find weaknesses and hidden items, and when they're ready, put together the perfect shot with intuitive on-screen controls – walking in close proximity, to get accurate information, or to retreat to get a better view of destruction. "

Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs is now free to download from the App Store. It remains unclear when, or if, its developers are planning to run the Android version.
