The Angry Birds Phenomenon
Yes, the Angry Birds craze is still on! This mobile game from Rovio has become hugely popular among mobile users – and is one of the best selling iOS apps of all time. It is also now available for PC users and just recently announced that Mattel was turning it into a board game.
Lego wizard, Tsang Yiu Keung has made his lego version of the Angry Birds game. It’s totally something to be amazed by and you can view more of the pictures on his Facebook page.
And now we got to know that Rovio will be bringing the Angry Birds phenomenon into the Television industry. :)
“We have been looking at [TV] for quite a while, and that is definitely one of my personal big focus areas right now – to work on broadcast content for ‘Angry Birds,’ ” Rovio CEO Mikael Hed told the TV site C21media.net, according to the New York Post. He added that the Angry Birds cartoon is now ready for production, which could mean that the program will hit screens sometime this year.
At the end of last year, Rovio announced that it would create an in-game mobile payment system called Bad Piggy Bank. This will allow users to upgrade and purchase new items on the game without using a credit card as the charges will apply to the users mobile phone bill.
