I suppose you could call this game more of a race and kill game, along the lines of Twisted Metal, if you know what I mean - does it sound like the kind of game you'd be seeing birds flying around in? Heck no! That's why we found it utterly baffling when @Rovio spoke of "Mighty Eagle" aka the pay-for-help element in the original Angry Birds game appearing here in this new game for iOS, a remake of the 1996 original, Death Rally GDC 2011. Thusly your humble narrator inquired on what the heck was going on, to which we received word that Angry Birds wouldn't be appearing in the game, but that Mighty Eagle would, aiding players in their tasks at hand. Oh eagle! Why weren't you around when I was trying to beat Final Fantasy 7!? Not even born yet.
Rovio has announced that its immensely popular Angry Birds game is coming to Facebook. A version made for the social networking site should be released within a month’s time and be ready in April. There will be a few new changes to the game, but no details were given out except that the pigs will have a more prominent role on the Facebook version.
I bet that there are a lot of you out there that love Angry birds. If you really like the game and have wished you could play it on your computer at home or in the office, the game has now hit the Intel AppUp store. This is the store for Windows computers where you can buy little download games directly from Intel.
BlackBerry users don't have many options for games, but today's new addition should bring joy for some while making others cringe. Smarter Apps has developed Angry Farms, a knock-off of the enormously popular Angry Birds game.
We have another entry in the line of Angry Birds cakes and this one hails from across the pond in the U.K. This cake sets itself apart from previous versions because it actually lets you play the Angry Birds game on the actual cake. Video of the carnage after the jump.
Rovio, the company behind the popular Angry Birds game, has just confirmed that it is working on a Windows Phone 7 version. On top of that, they confirm plans to develop a 3D version for the slew of 3D devices on the way.
