Sequel to 2009's hit app features new characters, gameplay.
The game retains the much-loved slingshot format of the original, but with visuals and gameplay that have been overhauled including multiple stages in each level and new spells such as blizzards, magic ducks and hot chili peppers. Fans also can challenge other gamers worldwide and, for the first time, choose their own fowl to fling.
“Design technology has evolved dramatically since the original game launched in 2009,” says Niklas Hed, co-founder, Rovio. “With 'Angry Birds 2' we wanted to bring a level of expressive depth and detail seen previously only in a console game or animated series and create a new game that kids and adults alike won’t be able to put down.”
Alongside returning characters Red, Chuck, Bomb and King Pig, joining the flock is Silver, a young bird rescued from Pig City. Growing up in pig captivity,she has acquired porcine habits and an odd sense of humor.
“'Angry Birds 2' doubles down on the core tenets of the original that our fans loved: destruction and more destruction,” says Patrick Liu, creative director, "Angry Birds 2." “At the same time it adds a whole new layer of emergent strategy gameplay for both old and new fans to master.”
"Angry Birds 2" is available now in the Apple App Store and Google Play.
