Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs App Store was released just recently, as the Resolution Games and Rovio gave the official green light for this mega-popular title. This first AR Angry Birds mobile game was made possible with Apple’s ARKit tech. This game features all the classic, familiar characters but with a much wider spectrum of possibilities.
Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs App Store release date: 29th April 2019
So, a few days ago, Resolution Games and Rovio have brought this iconic title in its first AR rendition to mobile phones, iOS primarily. The AR side of things makes it much more than just a slingshot game, for augmented reality has given the developers so much other possibilities to explore.
The players will get a closer look into the infamous vacation spot with green pigs. All our favorite and familiar Angry Birds characters are here, like Chuck, Bomb, Red, and Blues. They need to again bombard their enemy, meaning in this case they need to level this exotic island to nothing but sand.
Over 50 new levels await for players eager to do damage and fight the green pigs, which is as the developers say – just the beginning. 3D levels viewed through your iPad or iPhone will enable the players to have a 360° view of their environment, find hidden items, weaknesses in the enemy lines, and steady up for the perfect shot. The onscreen controls are as intuitive as they always were, as now the position of the player is also a factor in the game, meaning you can either walk up close to your mark or try a long shot – all up to you.
The CEO of Rovio Entertainment, Kati Levoranta, said:
”We’ve received a great reaction following the announcement of Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs. Now that the game is available globally, we’re excited to see how fans react once they get their hands on it and experience how seamlessly Angry Birds slingshot gameplay translates to augmented reality.
