The makers of the sensational Angry Birds title have released a sequel to their acclaimed game called Angry Birds Rio. In a collaboration between Rovio and 20th Century Fox, Angry Birds Rio has been released in the App Store prior to the movie release of “Rio.”

Angry Birds Seasons has already been available in the App Store, and Angry Birds Rio is essentially the same gameplay with a plot based on the upcoming movie. 60 new playable levels are offered in the Rio edition of Angry Birds, and Rovio promises more to come in future updates.

Official description:

“What happens when everybody’s favourite fierce fowl get caged and shipped to Rio? They get very angry!

In Angry Birds Rio, the original Angry Birds are kidnapped and taken to the magical city of Rio de Janeiro, where they eventually escape their captors and set out to to save their friends, Blu and Jewel – two rare macaws and the stars of the upcoming Fox motion picture, Rio. Angry Birds Rio will pair the physics-based gameplay of the original game with unique twists based on the film.

What do you think of Angry Birds Rio? What about the movie? It’s pretty cool that an iPhone game has been successful enough to get a movie deal.

    Pretty much the same game but somehow it manages to still be really really fun

    I’ve always been an angry bird fan made a vid and posted it last night so to spread the word

    This was released 17th of march bit slow on the news

    Incredible graphics, with better details and greater physics – Rovio has done it again. Better than the original!

  • William

    They improved everything, but the revamped music is my favorite part.

  • I’m a great fan of angry birds and this one seems best yet characters and backgrounds animate gameplay is smoother, no lag on white birds bombs (for me at least) the hidden fruit are an interesting take on the golden eggs, and a nice challenge (some elements of levels move as puzzle pieces eg swinging lights in the warehouse) the monkeys in episode 2 are very animated and crawl about for their survival if they teeter on the edge of a falling block. Great audio through music and effects make this feels like it could be ‘angry birds 2’ and it’s great. So worth the 59p cheaper than a can of soda
