Angry Birds 2 Flies Into App Stores.

As promised, developer Rovio on Thursday launched Angry Birds 2, ushering in a “new era of addictive slingshot gameplay with stunning graphics, challenging multi-stage levels, scheming boss pigs, and even more destruction,” according to the game’s description. While the basic gameplay remains the same – essentially catapulting a variety of birds at a group of heavily armoured pigs – there are now multiple stages in each level and new spells, including “blizzards”, “magic ducks” and “hot chili peppers”.First released in December 2009, the hit game held the No. 1 spot for paid iOS apps longer than any other, according to mobile analytics company Sensor Tower.Since the first Angry Birds was released in 2009, its makers have released a huge range of updates, including Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Epic, as well as tie-ins with other franchises like Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Star Wars. The original Angry Birds game reached the top spot 311 times in the App Store—at one point for 80 days straight—since July 2010, the earliest data available from the firm.

Friends, family, and coworkers all excitedly asked whether you’ve played it yet, and you could barely leave your house without spotting some sort of Angry Birds merchandise. The new levels are “brimming with exotic plants, quirky details, fun animations, and plenty of peril.” The piggies have also learned a thing or two about building rock-solid towers that will stand up to your assaults, making things even more challenging. Rovio Entertainment, which makes the games, said that the new game adds the option to let players choose which bird they fling and when, adding an element of strategy. The company’s hoping its sequel to the original—and 15th overall game in the franchise—will revive sluggish merchandise sales and drive people to the theaters when The Angry Birds Movie comes out in 2016. Overall, 10 of the 14 Angry Birds games, including the spin-off Bad Piggies, ranked No. 1 in at least one of the following App Store categories: top free app, top paid app, top grossing app, top free game, top paid game, or top grossing game.

People are curious about this decision, so Patrick Liu, Rovio’s creative director, explained their reasoning: “This is such a big step forward in terms of the gameplay and how the game looks that it justified the name of number 2. So it wasn’t really planned like that, it just came naturally when we realized how big of a step it was forward.” Early reviews of the game have been positive, for the most part. They see it as a way for the company to just make more money (some seem quite surprised that they didn’t make the game simply to benefit the public).
