After hearing about Angry Birds on every radio station morning show, I finally got to play it not too long ago on a friend's ... um ... fancy phone.
I don't know whether it was a Droid or an iPhone ... but I have to admit, that game is fun. It's probably a good thing I don't have a fancy phone because I probably wouldn't get much done, like, ever.
Today a new version called Angry Birds Rio was released, a tie-in to an upcoming animated movie "Rio." According to Hollywood Reporter, "Rio" premieres tonight in Rio de Janeiro, which is why the app was also released today.
From the article: Angry Bird Rio pairs the gameplay of the original game with unique twists based on the film. In Angry Birds Rio, animal smugglers have kidnapped the Angry Birds and taken them to Rio, where they escape their captors and set out to save their friends, Blu and Jewel.
Never miss a local story.
