Angry Birds is the biggest games phenomenon to emerge in recent years.
The mobile phone game has been downloaded over 500m times since it first hit the iOS App Store in December 2009. On Christmas Day alone it was downloaded 6.5m times.
Now Focus Multimedia is bringing the second Angry Birds game to retail – Angry Birds Seasons. The publisher has already released the original game, as well as Rio. The former topped the GfK?Chart-Track PC?budget charts upon release.
This new special edition takes the birds across several seasons as they hope to thwart the evil egg-stealing pigs. Like other Angry Birds games, players must catapult their cartoon birds from the left side of the screen in order to smash the pigs’ fortresses on the right. It’s the same addictive strategy puzzle gameplay but with fresh new levels and styles.
Angry Birds Seasons includes over 200 levels taking place across a variety of themed stages based on holidays and festivals such as Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, St.Patrick’s Day, Easter and Moon Festival. It promises users hours of addictive gaming.
Seasons also has an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 on the Android marketplace, out of almost half a million ratings.
With the Angry Birds name and a budget SRP of just £10.20, Seasons is sure to be another retail success for Focus Multimedia and Rovio.
