Angry Birds Rio
Looks like Rovio and their supercalifragilisticexpialidocious game Angry Birds has teamed up with 20th Century Fox to give us “Angry Birds Rio.” This partnership meshes the popular Angry Birds game with an upcoming animated feature film Rio.
In Angry Birds Rio, the original Angry Birds are kidnapped and taken to the magical city of Rio, where they eventually escape their captors and set out to to save their friends, Blu and Jewel – two rare macaws and the stars of the upcoming Fox motion picture, Rio. Angry Birds Rio will pair the physics-based gameplay of the original game with unique twists based on the highly-anticipated film.
Angry Birds Rio will launch with 45 dedicated levels and will regularly add new levels via app updates. The game will be available for download on smart phones and tablets worldwide.
Angry Birds Rio is set to launch sometime this March, while the 20th Century Fox animated film Rio is set to hit theaters April 15th. Rio should make for an interesting addition to the Angry Birds game series and I’m still hoping our angry friends will make a cameo in the actual film (but that’s yet to be seen). I was going to insert another Angry Birds/Productivity reference here but I think we’ve grown past that. Enjoy!
It seems some worms crawled their way into the Android Market courtesy of EA Mobile. The classic turn-based strategy game “Worms” has been “optimized” (whatever that means) and released for Android. Command your worm platoons as you try to annihilate the opposing team. Enjoy classic weapons like the Banana Bomb and Super Sheep along with the familiar and comical “Worms” dialog.
Worms by EA Mobile is available for $2.99 in the Android Market. For some reason it’s not showing up when I search AppBrain but I did find it on Androlib and the Android Market. It also appears the release was experiencing many problems especially with the Droid X so try to keep a look out in the Market comments to see if, or how, it may affect your device before downloading. Now go get your worm on!
