Ah, Angry Birds... it seems like it was only yesterday that the beta version of AB landed in the Android Market. Those crazy birds have come so far in such a short amount of time, and now they're back again with the newest update to the series entitled Mine and Dine. We already showed you the teaser trailer for this update a little over a week ago, but it never hurts to see it again, so here it is:
This update takes to the underground to bring 15 all-new levels of bird-slinging action to your device.
Just when you thought you were sick and tired of Angry Birds news (I certainly was), Rovio Mobile has unveiled an intriguing new spin on the classic throw-the-birds-at-the-pigs gameplay, and it involves the much-ballyhooed NFC chip found in the Nexus S.
It's not available just yet, but it appears that in future releases of Angry Birds, you'll be able to utilize a previously Nokia-exclusive feature called "Magic." Simply bump your phone against a friend's to unlock new levels or share existing gameplay elements.
Sometimes, it's just not fun to be the good guy. Sometimes, you need to be a little bad. Sometimes, you just need to destroy everything that lays in your path with a fiery ball of fury.
Burn The City puts you in the shoes of a giant lizard/Godzilla/monster-thing who has hatched all alone and in a strange world. Clearly, the logical conclusion he reaches is to destroy everything around him.
Surprise, surprise - Rovio's about to issue the next major content update to Angry Birds Rio early! The Carnival update will be available on the Market shortly (exactly how long, we don't know), and we already have the basic changelog:
15 levels in new world named Carnival Upheaval
Blue, the Macaw, can now be used alone.
The new hidden fruits are papaya (thanks to everyone who helped us figure this out)
There's several iOS sites that are already reporting on the update, and Rovio stated 2 days ago that Carnival would be coming to Android at the same time as iOS:
So, you love Angry Birds, and you've already achieved a three-star rank on every available level in the original, Seasons, and Rio? Then we have some good news - Rovio Mobile announced that another episode is coming to the original Angry Birds, called Mine and Dine. This time, the pigs have taken to the underground in hopes of escaping with the delicious eggs once and for all. Naturally, those kamikaze birds are not about to let that happen, and they're hot on the piggie trail, determined to once again take back what is rightfully theirs.
Let's say you've got a problem of a scientific nature: you've got a group of rogue atoms wreaking havoc in your petri dish, and you need to get rid of them. They've managed to convert certain structures into deadly traps, and are content to just hang around like a college grad who just won't move out. Who do you send in to fix this problem?
If you answered "Pandas", I'd like you to get your head checked.
The newest update to Rovio Mobile's movie inspired version of Angry Birds hit the official Android Market this morning. The game was originally exclusive to the Amazon App Store, so naturally, it was the first to see the update.
The update brings 30 new levels as well as "hidden bonuses and juicy secrets" to the birdy-centric game, according to the official changelog. If you haven't already seen it, here's a video that shows the action:
As promised, from today the AT&T online store is offering the Samsung Infuse 4G for $199.99 with a 2-year contract. The contract requires you to additionally purchase a minimum data service which starts at $15/month. Alternatively, you can pick up the 4G device for $549.99 sans-contract. Oh and there is also free shipping.
Dubbed the "nation's thinnest 4G smartphone", this 8.99mm Android 2.2 device features a gigantic 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus display (it really does look enormous on such a thin profile), a 1.2GHz Hummingbird processor, an 8MP rear camera with 720p video capture, a 1.3MP front camera, and Samsung's proprietary Touchwiz UI.
If you've beaten all 456930 levels of all 3 flavors of Angry Birds and can't wait for 30 more that Rovio teased us with, take a deep breath and go in for the kill - the update to Rio just went live in the Amazon Market.
Beach Volley, the 3rd Rio stage, following the Smugglers' Den and Jungle Escape, brings 30 more levels full of birds (including Blu and Jewel tied at the feet), monkeys, and you guessed it - beach balls.
If you've had an Android phone for more than, say, 6 minutes, then there's a good chance that you have Angry Birds installed. Actually, there's a good chance that you all all three versions of Angry Birds installed - the original, Seasons, and the newest of the three: Rio (based on the movie of the same name).
The latter has an update coming next week, dubbed Beach Volley, that will bring about several new levels, but this time the setting is a beach, and you won't be killing pigs or freeing birds.
