Elizabeth Marek makes things out of fondant. She does it out of love and awesomeness. She also does it to make a living. She makes all kinds of pretty cakes for weddings, birthdays and other occasions. They are covered in this pretty sugary icing called fondant. Lately, she's been making Angry Birds out of fondant. She even tells you how to make your own. I'm a little bit in love.
Microsoft has given the most detailed look yet into Mango, the newest version of Windows Phone, at its annual show for Web and phone developers, Mix11. Microsoft's Joe Belfiore also assured us all that the rocky start that Microsoft has had in the phone platform is now behind it, and this new OS will be rolled out without glitches. Read more about the details of Mango after the cut.
We had just mentioned that Rovio is working on a project to allow the Angry Birds game to sync across all platforms, and now we can definitively add to that the Windows Phone 7 platform. Despite some bad blood between Microsoft and Rovio previously, the two companies have reconciled and promised an Angry Birds version to hit WP7 very soon. Today, Microsoft confirmed the game will be arriving on May 25th.
Angry Birds parent company Rovio announced via Twitter today that they are in the works to make the hugely popular game sync-able across all platforms. This is awesome news for all you Angry Birds addicts out there because this means you no longer have to start the game from scratch if you switch devices.
There was a huge Angry Birds event at SXSW Interactive Festival and part of that was to celebrate the launch of "Angry Birds Rio," a spin-off from the original hit and is tied in with the upcoming "Rio" 3D animated film. A video has surfaced that gives a first taste of the game featuring completely refreshed visual style.
Angry Birds has reached the status where any minor tweak and fans take notice. So with last night's update for Angry Birds HD, which inserted advertising into the game, you can imagine the commotion. The update brought fifteen new levels, a new golden egg, and advertisements wrapped up nicely in the “news section.”
Lest you suspect Amazon was treating its new Amazon Appstore as a hobby, the company has announced an exclusive deal with Angry Birds developer Rovio to release the new Angry Birds Rio title through the new Android marketplace. Ditching GetJar and shifting over to Amazon's new system, Rovio will also be offering ad-free versions of its existing Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons for Android games for the first time.
As with any introduction of a new Apple product, accessories will be flooding the market so consumers can deck out their devices in their own way. Gear4 has unveiled three Angry Birds designed iPad 2 cases today to coincide with the launch of Apple’s new tablet. The game is popular across all generations and it wouldn’t be surprising to see a five-year old and a fifty-five year old playing Angry Birds at the same time.
Angry Birds addict? Fingers almost worn through the glass of whatever smartphone you play it on? Rovio has just the teaser for you, a preview video - which you can see after the cut - of the new St. Patricks Day "Go Green, Get Lucky" special levels for Angry Birds Seasons.
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.
