ROVIO UNVEILS ANGRY BIRDS FOR PALM PRE

Finland– August 24, 2010– After hearing the demand from Palm fans worldwide for Angry Birds, Rovio decided to introduce the most popular mobile game on the planet for Palm. From today, Palm Pre owners have access to endlessly entertaining bird mayhem in the App Catalog.

The most successful mobile game in the recent memory, Angry Birds has become the mobile gaming phenomenon of 2010. Angry Birds has reached the rank of number one paid app in 69 countries, with more than 6.5 million users having downloaded the game to their smartphones.

Angry Birds puts you in charge of a quirky flock of birds, whose natural tendencies towards love and nurture of their young are surpassed only by their limitless anger, when they discover a group of hungry pigs have stolen their eggs.

In an attempt to reclaim the eggs, you lead the birds to an intense assault on the strongholds of the pigs. Using a slingshot, you send the Angry Birds soaring through the air to smash the pigs and their puzzling hideouts. Angry Birds pairs smooth physics modeling with appealing cartoon visuals and audio to provide a fresh and gripping experience for everyone.

A high amount of attention has been paid to every detail in the design of the game characters and environments. The unique characters and the simple but surprising gameplay create an unlimited variety of outcomes for every scenario. The controls are easy to learn, and the steadily rising difficulty level makes Angry Birds easy to learn and rewarding to master.

Rovio is pleased to provide Palm fans with an opportunity for hours of pig popping action with Angry Birds– a growing phenomenon that shows no signs of slowing down.
