Angry Birds Go! launched worldwide today, several months after the game's scannable toy line hit stores. Since no one keeps instructions for that long, here's how Hasbro's plastic and Rovio's mobile go-kart game get along.
Now that fans of mobile gaming's most furious fowl have had time to collect all of Hasbro's Angry Birds Go! Telepods figures, Rovio has finally released the 3D kart racing game that goes along with them. The free-to-play Angry Birds Go! is out today for Android and iOS.
It's still a couple of weeks before the Angry Birds kart racing game hits mobile devices in North America, but it's on New Zealand's iTunes right now, and I've played it long enough to get very angry with it. Energy meters? Really?
Now that the toy tie-ins are on store shelves and we've got an official December 11 release date, we're finally getting a look Angry Birds Go! gameplay. Wow.
Our first official look at Angry Birds Go! comes not from a trailer or in-game screenshots, but from Hasbro's upcoming line of Telepods and Jenga toys based on the kart-based spin-off. Strange.
The next Angry Birds game is a kart racer. Huh. That'll quiet the folks who complain Rovio only releases the same sort of game over and over again, I guess. And they've hooked up with Red Bull, which explains all the Go-ing.
No, it's not what you say every time you see a new Angry Birds post — it's a new game being teased by Rovio over at Go.AngryBirds.Com. Looks like it could be a fowled-up endless runner, or maybe a racer? Either way, it's coming. Grab some paper towels.
