Angry Birds 2 – The Official Sequel to Angry Birds – Out Now Worldwide!

The Angry Birds are back in their first sequel! Bigger, Badder, Birdier! After being “Under Pigstruction” for a few months in select countries, Angry Birds 2 (Official Name) The Sequel has been launched worldwide on iOS and Android via Google Play.

“WHAT?” I hear you say, “haven’t there been loads of sequels already?” The short answer is NOPE! And certainly not like this one…

The game mixes elements for previous spin-offs with some very interesting novelties such as Spells and Multi Stage Levels.

Official Gameplay Trailer

Things We Know Now

  • Each Bird has a unique ability.
  • Birds can level up! Higher level birds cause more damage. See the forum topic here.
  • The power-ups have been replaced with spells
  • The Arena is unlocked after level 25. We put together a first look below and there is a great forum topic.
  • You receive a certain number of hearts that replenish over time. If you beat a level or restart before flinging a bird you DO NOT lose a heart.
  • Your bird line-up is determined randomly and the birds appear on “Cards”. You receive a certain number of cards to start each level, and more can be obtained by earning a certain number of points. If you exhaust all your cards you basically run out of birds. Occasionally, you’re able to watch a video ad to earn another card.
  • Most levels change when restarting. They’re usually similar, but the configuration can significantly impact your ability to 3 star or simply beat a level. There’s a forum topic about this here.

Arena First Look

First Look Under Pigstruction

Chose Your Bird

It’s the ultimate slingshot strategy – you get to choose which bird to fling next! “But that makes it easier” “WRONG!” You’ll need to master new spells and strategies if you’re going to stop those eggs getting scrambled. And with the new Destruct-O-Meter, the more blocks you destroy, the more extra throws you get!

Multi Stage Levels

You’ve never seen Piggy Island like this – jaw-droppingly stunning levels brimming with exotic plants, quirky details and plenty of peril. And because those naughty porkies are building their pigstructions right under your beak, many levels have multiple stages. Uh oh.

Spectacular Spells

Use blizzards, chilis, magic ducks and other outrageous spells to inflate the pigs for easier popping or to freeze their forts. And when you need some serious help, guess who’s at hand to make a pork-smashing cameo? That’s right, it’s the sardine loving Mighty Eagle. Oh yeah!

Challenge Other Players

Challenge players from across the world in the new leaderboards to see who’s the most hardcore bird flinger of them all.. Play new tournaments every day and earn more feathers to level up your birds to face the toughest competition on the planet. Seriously, it’s gonna be mega tough.

Defeat Boss Piggies

There’s some serious bad guys on Piggy Island, and your slingshot skills are needed to take them down. Foreman Pig, Chef Pig and – of course – the infamous King Pig make this the toughest challenge the birds have seen so far. Have you got what it takes to get the precious eggs back from these baddies?

It’s also important to note that Angry Birds 2 is optimized for iPhone 5, iPad 3, iPad mini and iPod Touch 5G or newer. You can try it on older devices, but we can’t guarantee a smooth bird flinging experience!

    Just a word or two to those who think the many who do not like AB2 should not voice their opinions of the game: Everyone is entitled to their opinion and to share it here, positive or negative.

    Do leftover birds still give 10k points? I can’t tell. Most of the time I get three stars with 0 birds left, so it seems like the sequel is more about destruction. I can’t find the answer anywhere though.

    James, You get bonuses for clearing a stage with 1 or 2 birds (Birdie and Strike yield 25k and 15k points) – leftover birds do not give you anything.

    It depends on where you got the initial game download. For Android devices, it would be in the Google Play Store. For iOS devices, go to the Apple Store.

    When will this be available on kindle? My phone has very little space and, unless I install everything, I can’t download it (very generic junk phone for those of you worried about storage).

    By Windy Chaffin

    Love the game!! I’ve been playing it for 3 m but them it just froze up and I had to redownload it sucks cause know I have to start all over. Is that a glitch in the game? I don’t want it to keep happening.
