angrybirdsgologo Rovio has officially released Angry Birds Go! for iOS, bringing a 3D kart racing game based off of the popular Angry Birds franchise to mobile devices. The game includes many of the usual bird and pig characters from the Angry Birds series participating in downhill kart races with various tracks and power ups, and also includes the ability to perform kart upgrades. A variety of game modes are present as well, with Angry Birds Go! also bringing support for Hasbro's interactive "Telepods" toys that debuted alongside Angry Birds Star Wars II.
Welcome to downhill racing on Piggy Island! Feel the rush as you fling those freewheeling birds and piggies down the track at breakneck speed – with plenty of twists and turns in a thrilling race to the finish line! But beware! Look out for hazardous roads, mischievous opponents riding your tail and special powers to put the race leader behind the pack. Plus, go from soapbox car to supercar by upgrading your ride! Ready…Set…Angry Birds Go!

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!

Ugh. I'll pass. This freemium stuff is the cancer of the software world.

That icon . . .

How is that bird "angry"?

In fact, it's the only sustainable business model in a world full of $0.99 apps.


Then devs need to charge more for their apps. I paid $10 each for the iWork apps, $20 for Omnifocus, $5 for iBank, $15 or so for 1Password. And those were just the iOS versions.

Good apps are worth the money and if devs won't properly value their work then nobody else will either.

Freemium is OK, since you know what you're getting in to.

Caveats:
Don't make me pay for the game + IAP
Don't make me pay for the game + Give me spamverts every level end/start
Don't give me push notifications that "my game misses me". That stuff seriously works?

Great. But I'm never using it. Any app that has IAPs doesn't even get a download from me. It is in my belief it should be boycotted.


Some of them are OK. Plants vs Zombies 2 is one example of a game that goes IAPs tastefully. You can use them if you're lazy and want to speed up your progress, but its not essential to completing the game.

I think Freemium is interesting when it's a game I might try that I might not have looked at otherwise.

But when you force me to stop playing and then ask me to pony up £50 or whatever for your 'super amazing racing kart', then you can go fling your birds at some other pig.

Wow, they're really trying to suck this brand dry, aren't they... I mean, it looks like they're just making a generic kart racing game and slapping an Angry Birds theme on it in hope that people will go "hurr durr Angry Birds" and get it.

Super Mario Cart with Birds! :)

I have to say that while I still find Angry Birds fun to play and some of the levels are very challenging, they have been really milking it badly.

All the paid cheats and gimmicks (not to mention the nag screens trying to get you to use the paid cheats) lately have really been leaving me with a sour feeling when I play them. And allowing us to pay to get early access to the 25 days of winter levels... :eek:

Looks like a complete rip-off of Beach Buggy Blitz.


And Pangea's Cro-Mag Rally.

How so? You can play a game for free.

I WISH there were things like that when I was younger. We could rent games for $$$, or buy them for $$$. There were no free games on consoles or portables.
