Nov 08, 2014 Angry Birds Transformers - get it for free on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone
55 Comments
Peek

If you're thinking "Oh, just another Angry Birds game" then think again as Angry Birds Transformers is very much different to the original Angry Birds and it's many sequels.

This one doesn't focus on the classic catapult action that we're so used to with Angry Birds, which I think is a nice move from developers Rovio. If you ever played Major Mayhem, that we featured back in August 2013, there is a strong resemblance. That's a good thing as Mayor Mayhem kicked butt on all mobile platforms and now Angry Birds Transformers is free to download from the Amazon Appstore!

If you checked out the above video you would have seen that things appear fairly basic. I only got a few levels in before deciding to shoot the quick demo, but as you can see from the full list of features below, there is a ton of variation within the game.

Features include:

  • COLLECT! Unlock a roster of heroes (and villains) with unique attacks and abilities!

  • DESTROY! Leave the slingshot at home – this time you have some SERIOUS firepower!

  • VEHICLES! Oh, yes! Car, truck, tank or plane – transform to dodge falling hazards!

  • UPGRADES! Get stronger weapons and new abilities for every Transformer!

  • TAG TEAM! Borrow a friend's character to unleash a devastating two-bot assault!

  • TELEPODs! Scan 'em to unlock, revive or boost your bots!

If you are lucky enough to have the BlackBerry Passport or P'9983 then you'll have the Amazon Appstore pre-loaded. If you are new to BlackBerry 10 we have full instructions in the following link:

Mar 17, 2014 Rovio launching new RPG called Angry Birds Epic, mum's the word on a BlackBerry 10 release though
44 Comments
Peek

The folks at Rovio have been busy it seems working on the next game for their insanely profitable Angry Birds franchise. This time around it's not a racing game but instead it's going to be a brand new RPG game dubbed Angry Birds Epic.

Angry Birds Epic is an adventure role-playing game set in a fantasy version of Piggy Island. It offers an awesome storyline, turn-based combat, a gripping campaign with a challenging end game, a rich system of crafting weapons, armour and potions with resources the players can collect or purchase, and much more.

Rather than rolling out the game globally, Rovio has decided to first do soft launch of sorts on iOS in Australia, New Zealand and Canada before a wider launch in late Spring. There's no official word on whether or not it will be released for BlackBerry 10 but at the same time there's no release date for Android either. Guess we'll have to wait and see if it arrives on BlackBerry 10 like all their other releases in the franchise.

Yesterday they teased it and today it was unveiled to the world — the next title in the Angry Birds line will be Stella. The upcoming title looks very female-oriented and shows Stella joined by five of her besties for what will surely be plenty of grand adventure.

We're not quite sure just what it is, or when we'll see it go live (the name and other details will be revealed tomorrow) but Rovio is teasing an all-new Angry Birds release on Twitter. Their last offering, Angry Birds Go, landed on BlackBerry 10 the same day as other platforms, so here's to hoping that this one will be the same. We know what a debacle it was to get the original titles on BB10 so hopefully we won't have to endure that process again.

When we wrote up two days ago that Angry Birds Star Wars for BlackBerry 10 is available in BlackBerry World, the price was 99 cents. That said, with the BlackBerry Z10 officially on sale now in the UK and going on sale in Canada next week, the price has already taken a drop to the low low price of FREE.

     Angry Birds Star Wars How important is it to have Angry Birds on BlackBerry 10 at launch?

    Yesterday Rovio once again dropped a huge announcement. Angry Birds Star Wars will be hitting the world in about a months time on November 8th, destined to take over phones and tablets everywhere. While there was the obvious note of iOS and Android, there was nothing said about the BlackBerry PlayBook. We know that it took quite a while to see the original Angry Birds first come to the PlayBook, but in the case of Angry Birds Space, the gap wasn't too long between launch and the time we saw it available for download. While it's doubtful that we'll see Angry Birds Star Wars hit the PlayBook on November 8th, we're hopeful that we'll see it on BlackBerry 10 devices and going ahead from there, titles like this will include BB10 in their launch. 

    Our question today is this: How important is it to have Angry Birds on BlackBerry 10? We're kind of singling out one title here as it could apply to any "big name" games/apps, but there is no denying it's a pretty mainstream game at this point. Let us know what you think in the poll above, then sound off in the comments. Keep reading to check out the teaser video.

In the update you will find not only a new pink bird, but Rovio has also added in two more levels for your bird flinging pleasures. The first is Piglantis with some interesting twists involving water, and the second is Back To School with all the elements you remember from the schoolyard and classroom. The new levels join the other Seasons levels which include Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Moon Festival and more!

    It may be Monday and you may have the blues, but if you own Angry Birds for the BlackBerry PlayBook you will want to check App World as there is an update to version 2.2.0 available. The update brings us fifteen new tropical levels - enough to cheer me up at least. 

    With BlackBerry PlayBook sales growing steadily it is encouraging that we continue to see big name developers not forgetting us BlackBerry users. We are still some months away from BlackBerry 10 but I see this as a great sign that the platform will see many of the well loved apps that our friends on iOS and Android currently have that we don't. The future is bright for Team BlackBerry and don't let anyone tell you it is not!

    "Lemme tell ya, these ain't no ordinary finches we're talkin' about. These here are the Angry Birds, the ones that's gonna kick you in the 'nads. And they're the ones on your side. They must be from Galapadapados, or sumptin'." - Col. Angus, Bird Expert.

    The piggies continue their beach vacation with fifteen new tropical levels - but the vacation's gonna end when the birds show up!

    Go grab it while it's hot.

    Though just released for the BlackBerry PlayBook a little over 2 weeks ago, Angry Birds Space has already received an update. Version 1.1 adds a new level called Fry Me To the Moon which will be a welcome addition for those of us that have already played through the first 2 levels. This update also includes a couple of minor changes to the layout of the menu, namely rearranging the planets and unveiling a bit more of the teaser image marked "Coming Soon".

    Rumor has it that maybe the Simpsons will somehow tie into a new Angry Birds game, and we can't help but think of Homer when we see that pink frosted donut poking out of the brown wrapper in that teaser image. What do you guys think? Coincidence, or a fairly obvious hint? Let us know in the comments below, and if you don't already have Angry Birds Space on your PlayBook, you can grab it at the link below for just $2.99. Thanks to everyone that sent this in!

    Today Rovio has updated Angry Birds Seasons to version 2.3. The new version brings the levels up to par with the other platforms which include Cherry Blossom, Year of the Dragon, Wreck the Halls, Ham'o'ween and many others. The download should be available in BlackBerry App World, but if not remember it can take up to 24 hours to go across all the servers. If you have not downloaded this version, or any of the Angry Birds games, I suggest doing so. They're quite addictive.

    Pandas vs Ninjas! You won't even miss those birds and pigs, we've got Pandas vs Ninjas! The pandas need to defend their home land from the ninja invaders, destroying their camps and taking back what's theirs. Will you help the Pandas win the war?

    XIMAD has brought their popular WP7/Android game to BlackBerry, and it is just what you want it to be. Multiple levels, each with a different style, as well as pandas with different abilities, ensure that gameplay is entertaining and challenging. The graphics are sharp and detailed, the game plays without lag (tested on my Bold 9700), and there are plenty of levels to keep you happy for quite some time.

    Pandas vs Ninjas is available for $2.99 and is compatible with BlackBerry smartphones on OS 5.0 and higher. Hopefully XIMAD will port this game for the BlackBerry PlayBook too!

Here we are, now in May and during todays Keynote Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-Chief Executive Officer Research In Motion made sure everyone knew Angry Birds was indeed, coming to the BlackBerry PlayBook. No announcement came directly from Rovio as of yet but we're expecting as we get closer to release we'll start to hear more. Only fair to note -- no mention was made about a transition to BlackBerry 7 enabled devices but it's still a possibility, especially now that it seems Rovio and RIM have been working together plus there, is still Angry Farm for us all.

That being the case, I was obviously very excited to see the folks at Smarter Apps release Angry Farm for BlackBerry Smartphones, a game that has a LOT of similiarities to Angry Birds...
