Back in October, Rovio announced their latest installment in the Angry Birds series, Angry Birds Go and promised it's arrival in December. Here we are now, eleven days in an the game has arrived in BlackBerry World for BlackBerry 10. This one however, takes a new twist on the franchise and doesn't have you slinging birds across the screen. Instead, it's more a throwback to Mario Kart in the fact that you race birds and piggies down a race track at breakneck speeds.

  • FIRST-EVER 3D ANGRY BIRDS WORLD! See the birds and pigs from every angle as Piggy Island comes alive in this rich and colorful 3D world!
  • RACE AS THE BIRDS OR PIGS! Jump behind the wheel and race as Red, Chuck, Terence, Stella, King Pig, Moustache Pig and many other favorites!
  • MASTER THE TRACKS! Plenty of racetracks, stunt roads, air courses and off-road races – each throwing big and unexpected challenges your way!
  • AWESOME SPECIAL POWERS! Smash your opponents off the road and take that winning position thanks to unique special powers for each character!
  • MANY GAME MODES! Test your skills with super-fun and surprising game modes: Race, Time Boom, Fruit Splat, Champion Chase and Mega Match!
  • UPGRADE YOUR RIDE! From a homemade soapbox car to a super-fly supercar, with tons of karts and awesome ways to upgrade – yours to earn or purchase!
  • MUCH MORE TO COME! The race has only just begun – so look out for many more fun things coming your way!
  • TELEPODS! A groundbreaking new way to play! Now teleport your favorite characters into the race by placing your Angry Birds Go! TELEPODS figures on your device's camera!
  • ToonsTV READY TO GO! The home of the hugely popular Angry Birds Toons animated series, plus many other top-quality videos!

Angry Birds Go is a free download from BlackBerry World but it does have some in app purchases. Actually it probably has a lot of them and likely borderlines abuse of the IAP system to a point where it's insanely frustrating to people who just want to play the game, so keep that in mind.

Also, it's only available for the Z10, Z30 and P'9982 so Q10 and Q5 owners are left out of this one sadly. We'll get a hands on with the game up soon enough but for now if you're looking to get in on the action hit the link below or search for it in BlackBerry World

Perfect :) :) and Playbook no going?

Free version only? It means ads and data transfer, doesn't it?

I dunno, the BlackBerry versions don't usually have ads, it could be a nice promotion like Angry Birds Space for making us pay like 3$ in the past on PlayBook versions....

I like big BlackBerrys and I can't lie!

Chanlion

It's not as bad as Android advertising. From the 1 hour play experience. I actually don't think I've run into an ad yet.

scrapmetal58

Nice, is this at the same time as Android and iOS?

You're sad it's at the same time? You should be happy it's not 2 years later for once. No pleasing people these days.. lol

The amount of crying that has popped up on this site is entertaining and saddening all at once.

I hate having the q10 sometimes haha, its not often I want to play games but this one actually looks pretty fun

Prem WatsApp

I have a Q for biz and productivity,

then grabbed a cheap Z10 at bargain price for games and fun. No regrets, just battery life is no match.

My name is Prem, I'm using BBM ... from my QuZe10 ...whatarhyme...

TranceRomance

I did the same thing. Q10 by far!

Posted via CB10 with my BlackBerry Q10...SON!

sk8er_tor

I think buying a Q10, you would expect some games to not be on it.

Pearllover95

Yeah i guess I had just never thought about the q10 not getting games because I never really care for games. This one just looked awesome, especially if they had online! Also I had a z10 before my q10, the q10 is a beast!

TranceRomance

Yezziir!!

You can hardly play good games on such a small screen
On my Q10

Kalpesh, Q 10

PJLips

Great news!

Sadly I'm using a Q10 as a daily driver. Asphalt 7 & Real Racing 3 work just fine on the small screen, so why not this game?

Ah well, I'll install it on my Z10.

sk8er_tor

It may come at a later time; the game probably has to get optimized for the 1:1 screen.

axllebeer

That they do. Looks like I won't be playing this bird game on my Q. Awe well, that's why I have a cheap Samsung tab for lol.

Posted Via CB10 using the power of "Q"

Taigatrommel

It was more or less known from the very bbeginning of BB10 that botth QWERTY devices will get less games compared to the full-touch counterparts. The odd resolution in combination with the rather small screens are the problems here. Honestly I tried quite some games on my Q10 and only found a very few of them somewhat enjoyable, because neither the 1:1 ratio,Nor the small screen were showstoppers.
On the bright side to all QWERTY fans: The gaming situation still is much much better than it was on legacy devices!

zensen

It's a shame there's no option to allow this but beam it to the TV or tablet screen and use the q19 as the controller.

The q10 is a great device that should have options like this for games far better suited on larger screens

It must be Christmas time! A cool game for free =D thanks for the heads up Crackberry

sjsavva

Brilliant! Would be nice to know how much each 'extra' costs before being taken to the payment page though...

Posted via CB10

MultiDoc

Exactly.
I hate developers/apps that don't tell you what it actually costs until you're in the payment screen

Posted via CB10

Anthony Giunta

Free is free was not taken to payment page so lighten up

Posted via CB10

whatsever

just delete it because after playing a game my mobile is almost crashed and it goes very slow. Did a reset and mobile is working normal . Start the game again same problem (lag) .

Use a Blackberry Z30 OS 10.2.0.429 - No GO 4 me

ITGuyinTO

Turn off sounds will fix all the lag

Lack of multiplayer makes it sad.

I'd rather pay for an app than put up with ads and in-app purchases. They can get really annoying.

nerdydaddyo

Finally! We are getting more mainstream apps everyday. Netflix and Spotify are probably tooling away in their workshop on something native for us trying to not look stupid for taking too long to get with the program.

I used my Z10 to create this CrackBerry madness!

Good question. I can't figure out either.

According to Rovio, the account feature is not available for all devices. So if you don't see an "account icon" on the main screen, then tough cookies. Sucks, I know - I too am irked. http://www.rovio.com/en/support/faq&support_category_id=117

Chanlion

I was expecting this to be a paid app but I'm wrong.

This is bullshit

Some Scoreloop integration would be nice..

Shame you can't set the steering by tilting the phone. Instead you have to touch the screen

Posted via CB10

asiayeah

Yeah. Is it just for BlackBerry 10 version? The game feels more natural to control by steering.

Posted via CB10

vespajet

That's why I'll stick to playing it on my Nexus 7 (in which the option is there), as if other racing driving games for BB10 can do steering by tilting the device, why can't the BB10 version of this app?

Great game, only issue is energy recharge time... But it is easy to fix it, so try it everyone)

Makes no sense that there are many other racing games out there for the Q series that work absolutely fine on the device, but developers still feel the need to segregate and blacklist Q users when developing their software. I highly doubt that ant Zed user can say that any software that is written for the 10 OS was not available for their device. This is quite annoying to say the least. Just wanted to voice my own opinion on the state of the app offerings we Q users are subjected to.

On BlackBerry 10 before kindle fire, iPhone 4 or older and before nexus and Samsung galaxy tab.

Very good sign.

Anthony Roberts5

The game is great however missing a lot of stuff compared to android.....No toonstv....no register with rovio button....its not in HD graphics are poor....They gave us a dumb down version of it compared to iOS Android and Windows......come Rovio release an update soon to improve the graphics....its look horrible compared to Android.....

I turned off the sound and it's perfect, must be a problem with the android runtime in 10.2.1. Same thing happens with some other android sideloads
