Hot off the press - the latest offering from Rovio is now in BlackBerry World so you Angry Birds addicts can enjoy the new saga, this time with Stella. I've not had the chance to play it as of yet so watch out for our review in the coming days. I think it's safe to say this one will be kick-ass though!

What's also rather impressive is that we've received the BlackBerry 10 edition the same time as our friends on iOS and Android.

Join Stella and her super adventurous friends in a quest to protect Golden Island from the greedy Bad Princess and her clueless piggies! Meet this fierce new bunch, master their amazing superpowers and play over 120 action-packed levels!

Stella has teamed up with Dahlia, Poppy, Willow and Luca – the newest flock on the block! These fearless pals have a strong bond but even stronger personalities. You could even say they're best friends forever... most of the time.

But now these brave birds need to pull together and fight to save the island from Gale, the Bad Princess who's stolen their scrapbook and is destroying their magical home. It's an all-new physics-based slingshot adventure – get ready to get fierce!

Features include:

  • PLAY OVER 120 LEVELS! Slingshot your way through the treetops of Golden Island!

  • MEET THE FIERCE FLOCK! Six fun birds with unique personalities!

  • MASTER THE MOVES! New kick-ass superpowers – tap and hold to target attacks!

  • STOP BAD PRINCESS! Her pesky piggies are wreaking havoc across the island!

  • COMPLETE YOUR SCRAPBOOK! Collect pics and wacky outfits to use in the game!

  • SEE FRIENDS' SCORES! Then try to beat them! (but don't fall out!)

  • SCAN YOUR TELEPODS! Bring extra-special birds into the game!

  • ENJOY LUSH GRAPHICS! Vivid visuals that put the "gold" in Golden Island!

Angry Birds Stella swoops onto BlackBerry 10

Not much of an Angry Birds guy so I don't follow these titles at all. Just wondering, how long has this title been on other platforms?

Posted from my z10

Well that's nice to know. Suggests that, at least with some companies, there are those willing to invest in native app production.

I didn't even realize it was in BlackBerry World and downloaded it from the Google Play Store using Snap (by the way Amazon Appstore also has it for those of you who have that). It runs really smoothly so I wonder if the BlackBerry World version is just a repackaged Android APK since the Android Runtime does such a good job there is no need to recode. Here's my quick video:

Can anyone find any news source besides Crackberry that says it's available for bb10. It doesn't even say it on the Angry Bird Stella page. At least not the mobile one.

No it isn't, not yet anyway. WP will probably get it about ten years after all other platforms like usual.

Oops, this one is really BB10 native?

Please confirm...

(Not going to download now, phone memory full and can't have another time waster... )

Nice :). I know big apps and games when they come it will be native on blackberry world from roxio....gameloft....and so on....

Short term goal with android apps is just to satisfy those people who want those apps now but once our user base increases those apps will become native to blackberry once the devs see its worth it.....but our OS is still in its infant stage and big devs won't make the jump yet for native coding until they see blackberry stabilize......show profits and the perception changes.

Posted via CB10

I do believe fellow users who started out with 10.0 will agree that our OS is now WELL into its toddler stage. It was released to the public 18 months ago for some, and longer than that for some others. The way people rave on CB about each new rendition of the OS when it comes out, you very could well say that the OS is potty trained, walking, and talking (Well almost. Hopefully, it can speak complete sentences with the improvements to BlackBerry Assistant.) But hey, all babies go through that stage. The point is, it can't be an infant forever. Time to stop saying it.

You do know that when I say infant stage I mean in terms of how old the OS is.....user base......dev support......in terms of functionality however I do agree it's way past it's infant stage and it went through that stage pretty quickly......

Would be nice to have a Built For BlackBerry version but very happy to at least be able to play the game :)

Best part is, it is available on Q - Series devices :D

There is native, which is good. Then there is Built for BlackBerry, which is better. Apps that achieve the Built for BlackBerry status have met various criteria above and beyond merely being native.

Most likely Rovio is using a unity like dev platform so they can build for all platforms at the same time. However, doing this means not being able to tap into all aspects of BB10 and thus not able to get Built for BlackBerry status.

I know the difference but its a game..... built for blackberry or not its a Native game. There would be no serious advantage build for BB for a game like this. If It's an app now that is totally different because it would be more integrated into the BB 10 OS like Hub integration...notification...but its angry birds game........What matters in certain situation that SHOULD be built for blackberry should be apps we have like....Viber...Skype...Mega...Flipboard...7 Digital....Timeplay...Those are apps that would make a huge difference if build for blackberry but a angry birds game...doesn't matter one bit.

Yeah, it wouldnt run any better if this were "Built for Blackberry" would it? It's not actually an Android port, right?

Posted via CB10

Its BB10 Native game so we are good to go and Rovio doesn't give us Android ports when it comes to their games on Blackberry. Rovio...EA....Disney....Etc those big companies will always build native games for us so we have nothing worry about in that regard....

Pretty chuffed it's available for the Q.
One of the main reasons I have a BlackBerry: the productive (and tactile) keyboard, but it's not to be able to play, too.

Posted via CB10

Well, there are games that are in the Built for BlackBerry category. It may not matter to average users. The game plays the same. However, when Built for BlackBerry is obtained, it means the developer has gone to great lengths to ensure device compatibility, maximized, performance, and aims for a top user interface experience.

Native is the sweet cake. Built for BlackBerry is the icing on top.

Yah I know everything you are saying trust me :) but angry birds wont matter LOL. If it was a game like Modern Combat 5 or Dark Knight or Real Racing yes those matter for sure. Angry Birds though....don't see the effort for built for blackberry.....

I know he's been posting android games a lot lately but we better get used to it with 10.3 on the passport and 10.3.1 the amazon app store is coming so we need to face reality. Games I don't care if native or android as long as it's smooth and for apps of course native is always best but we have android runtime in bb10 for a reason. We have to accept this and move and look at the bigger picture. When future amazing BlackBerry 10 devices get released and a customer goes to a store and wants one but they go home and find out no netflix....no instagram....no candy crush...and so on that they return it and go to android and apple? Blackberry can't afford anymore losses because of the "app" situation.

When BlackBerry 10 user base grows and grows and we see more market share then we will see more native apps and less android ports and more mainstream but for now the short term solution we need android apps like it or not. Remember Blackberry 10 OS and BB World for BB10 is still under 2 years old. Only thing they need to make sure is that android apps and games all of them get push notifications on the hub and the option to turn them off of course and runs smoothly and laggy.

Remember big time companies like Rovio...EA...Disney...and so on when they give us games it will always be a native game so we never have to worry about that to be honest.

About time! I'm not an Angry Birds fan but it 's really nice to see it being released for Blackberry OS. And no, having it available in Amazon doesn't count. A real native edition :)

I'm with you, i've downloaded it just to show that someone has grabbed it. I doubt i'll play it, my kids might, but never the less it counts as a download.

Posted via CB10

+1 Ditto here. We need to show support for the big developers like this. Smaller developers pay attention (or they should) platform download numbers.

I remember when Lazaridis stood on stage and actually made an announcement that the Playbook was going to have Angry Birds like it was some type of major coup. I remember watching that thinking is he really making an announcement about Angry Birds? Anyway nice to see that BB10 is being supported here.

Smooth, works well. Nice that they launched at the same time as iOS and Android, the support is appreciated

Interesting privacy policy. Also why does it ask for camera access? Is it part of the game?

Wonder why it doesn't ask for other permissions as they clearly want them and speak to them in their policy.

That being said love this series of games, so I'm happy to see this here!

I'll just make sure that I don't invite a friend and turn radios off to play if I don't need them.

From my z30

The great thing about it being a native app is you don't have to give it access to whatever items you feel uncomfortable with.

#Build for BlackBerry isn't a guarantee for Quality... there is a German news app "Die Welt" that is such a usability crap... sorry to say, but native is enough, build for BlackBerry says nothing

We truly appreciate Rovio for taking BB10 Community in account, I don't understand why some people always find a way to complain instead of being thankful when most of the "Big Names" apps are not developing for BB10 and some of our friends here are complaining for the "Built for" designation....c'mon guys!

Well that's pretty funny, considering Chen's categorical statement last year that BlackBerry would never pay to keep new versions of Angry Birds in BlackBerry World.

So that means one of two things: Chen needs to eat his words, or Rovio didn't ask for a dime to bring this updated version to BBW. Somehow I think scenario 2 is a little unlikely...

He was just grabbing some words, and Angry Birds is almost universally known...

Or they wanted to play some chenaningans with him... ;-)

So nice to see some big name developers giving BB10 some love. And the game works on the keyboard BB10 devices as well which is nice.

Normally I'm not all for the angry birds 'franchise' but this one is pretty cool, regardless. It's very smooth while you're playing however I did notice my phone heat up a bit. All in all it's a great way to waste time......at work. :)

Posted via CB10

I downloaded this game the moment I saw it in BBW. It looks good. Supporting rovio is good for BlackBerry.
