Mobile gaming giant Rovio has launched its latest title on Android and iOS today. Anry Birds Go is a free “kart” racer based in the Angry Birds universe, featuring feathered friends from the popular artillery shooter. If you’ve played Mario Kart or any similar titles you’ll know what to expect here — fast-paced 3D racing with a focus on power-ups and weapons, featuring familiar characters (birds and pigs, in this case.) There’s a variety of game modes to choose from besides a straight-up race to the finish, including Time Boom, Fruit Splat, Champion Chase and Mega Match.
Naturally you can also upgrade your vehicles by earning points in-game or buying them through in-app purchases — and you can add more characters to the game by capturing Rovio “Telepod” toys with your devie’s camera. The base game itself, however, is completely free, and it’s available now at the Google Play link above.
Angry Birds Go! has been confirmed to feature the first 3D world in the Angry Birds universe, so players will now be able to see the birds and pigs from every angle. Android, iOS and BlackBerry fans of the franchise will be able to race as Red, Chuck, Terence, Stella, King Pig, Moustache Pic and many other famous characters in the game. The game includes several modes meant to offer more variety, such as Race, Time Boom, Fruit Splat, Champion Chase and Mega Match.
TELEPODS support is included as well, so players can teleport their favorite character into the race by simply placing their Angry Birds Go! figurine on the device’s camera. “With one million Angry Birds Star Wars TELEPODS figures sold within a month of becoming available, the TELEPODS line is one of the hottest toys for the holidays and Hasbro continues to deliver a seamless physical to digital play experience with the new Angry Birds Go! TELEPODS line.
“Rovio has developed a fantastic new property with Angry Birds Go! and we look forward to fans enjoying the new TELEPODS line as well as the Angry Birds Go! JENGA games,” said John Frascotti, chief marketing officer, Hasbro, Inc.
