Angry Birds was one of the first viral games of all time. Originally released on the iPhone more than a decade ago, the game was later adapted for Android and almost any existing platform. Now, the classic is back in the news.
If you’ve ever liked Angry Birds, but haven’t been a big fan of modern iterations loaded with microtransactions and pseudo-3D sets, the creators of the original game have relaunched it “as it once was.” Unfortunately, in order to be compatible with the latest devices and look flawless on the high-resolution screens of 2022, the game was recreated from scratch, and that process is reflected in a purchase price.
The first Angry Birds, a classic at a good price
For 4.99 lei in Romania or 0.99 euros or dollars in other parts of the world, you can experience the first title in the long series Angry Birds by Rovio. Who knows, after you play it, maybe you will see through different eyes the two animated feature films released over the years under the same brand.
Whether you’ve played it or want to remember it or have never experienced it, but you want to know what it’s all about, it’s important to remember that although it looks the same as the original, the new Angry Birds released under Rovio Classic was created from scratch.
“Today’s mobile technology and video game space have evolved into a place where it was no longer sustainable to provide technical support for them,” Rovio officials said as an argument for relaunching the first Angry Birds, instead of update the old one. Additional mentions also came to argue the removal of the original games from the AppStore and Google Play.
In any case, if you have a curiosity on the subject and do not shy away from spending 5 lei for many hours of relaxation in front of the small screen, you can find Rovio Classics: Angry Birds in the Apple App Store and Google Play, without any microtransactions or in-app purchases. The game is as complete as it gets. It even includes the Mighty Eagle.
