Finnish app-developer Rovio, which ruled markets and hearts with its iconic game franchise Angry Birds, is to launch worldwide its latest game Angry Birds Go! this year on December 11th, and that too for free! This game involves all the popular Angry Birds characters go-kart-racing against each other (imagine Mario Kart with all these ‘angry’ birdies, and you nailed it!)
The creators have posted a trailer of the game on their blog, and this is what they’ve said- “It’s a complete first for the Angry Birds series, featuring high-octane downhill racing, upgradable karts, tons of characters with unique special powers and a fully rendered 3D world. In Angry Birds Go!, you can feel the rush as you fling down the track and go head-to-head in a fast and furious race to the finish line! Look out for treacherous roads, mischievous opponents and unique special powers to put the race leader behind the pack. Plus you can go from homemade soapbox car to a super-fly car by upgrading your ride. It’s all there, along with crazy stunt and air tracks, and many fun and surprising game modes.”
Gamers are also offered the ability to transport Hasbro’s Telepods LIVE karts to the game, like in Angry Birds Star Wars II. It’s an augmented reality based feature where players scan live figures via the camera attached and then transport the figure to the game. The game-app shall be available on all major platforms like Android, iOS, BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone 8.
