There is some good news for those who felt sad for those poor defenseless piggies, who suffered the wrath of ‘Angry Birds’. Yesterday Rovio, the maker of Angry Birds has turned the tables with its new Game ‘Bad Piggies’ and now it’s time for the piggies to take revenge.
Rovio Asia senior vice president said in the prolific launch ceremony in the Taiwanese capital Taipei, “We decided to choose Taipei as the place for the first global launch as it is one of the cities where ‘Angry Birds’ has been widely downloaded,” he said.
‘ Angry Birds’ is one of the most famous game app. This addictive game involves using slingshots to launch birds at the pigs. Till date 13 levels of the game have been launched, are all very popular amongst the users.
The launch of ‘Bad piggies’ was attended by Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin who described himself as a fan and offered a brief demonstration.
It was in July, a new game called Amazing Alex was launched by the company which rose to become number one in Top App charts but lost its popularity very soon.
Analysts are hoping that”Bad Piggies” could help renew interest in the Rovie by extending the original game’s universe.
“‘Bad Piggies’ will make ‘Angry Birds’ more than just a game. It will create stories for fans and give depth to the popular app,” said IC Jan, from Taipei-based venture capital company App Works Venture.
“Bad Piggies” has been launched on iOS, Android and Mac and versions for Windows Phone, Windows 8 and PCs are still to follow.
