Angry Birds Philadelphia Eagles Coming September 4th

Long, long ago we reported a collaboration between Rovio, the Angry Birds, and the NFL franchise Philadelphia Eagles (for the original post, click here). Well now we have some new information, and the good news is, it’s coming soon! Very soon! How about, September 4th!!

Some preliminary information about this app. There will be 16 levels, one released per week that the Eagles actually play. The Eagles have their “Bye Week” on the weekend of 21 October, so no level that week. Also, no word on whether more levels will be added if the Eagles make the playoff. It will be a Facebook-based game, playable on the Philadelphia Eagles’ Facebook page. It also appears that the gameplay has a small tweak, which is pretty cool. There are green footballs (or “pigskins”, if you will), which are also worth 5000 points. If anyone remembers Carnival Upheaval in Angry Birds Rio, I’m guessing this is very similar to the green piggie balloons, where they were worth 5000 points but not required to pass the level. This is just speculation on my part, but I think it’s quite likely.

We are also introduced to the Mighty Philadelphia Eagle, who appears to act identically as our original Mighty Eagle with a very slight twist. Actually, that’s quite literal: The Philadelphia Eagle seems to do a couple of spins after reaching the point of it’s V-shaped trajectory, then continue onward.

Be sure to check back here in September, as we will cover all levels with walkthroughs!

Update

September 4th is here and the the first level, “Cleveland” can now be played on the Philadelphia Eagles Facebook page. Here is a direct link to the game. We are working on getting the walkthroughs posted as we speak.

I knew it would be a web app…Great way to drive traffic to the Eagles FB page though!

NO! NO! NO! NO! Stop this web app madness…PLEASE! Please release this as a stand alone app, or as an update to Angry Birds Seasons (Football Season)

I agree with you @heathen – I wish everything that came out for the web came out as an app also. I’d pay for it even….

Awesome! The Mighty Philadelphia Eagle looks amazing! It will be better if they make it as a Angry Birds Friends episode!

I think it is pretty impossible because they’re still working on green day episode ( not sure if they’ll make some new level on that episode,though :/ )

The Eagles had this date on the calendar on their site for the launch party. I posted in the News and Rumor section of the forums on 8/21/12. Glad to see this was the game date too.

So cool to have so much new content coming out, but it really would be better if they could spread them out more to help the dry months..

Dry months? You are so tough on Rovio.

You know, sal9, you are right. In my head, I think of things like from Piglantis to Back to School as being 2 months between updates, which seems like a long time, but looking at the rollout calendar for the year, it’s pretty impressive:

Yep. The people at Rovio sure haven’t had time to be sitting on their hands doing nothing, as @dr-omega‘s list amply demonstrates.

Quite an impressive body of work any which way you look at it.

Quick question for anyone who might know – is it more difficult, expensive, time consuming, . . . for Rovio to develop and introduce a ‘free standing’ game as opposed to a web app?

Profile photo of sal9Rank: Avian Overlord with 17345 points
By sal9 (@sal9)

Yes, introducing a new app involves a lot more material/content/resources than a web game.

Definitely, since it must be coded for a multitude of devices and OS.

Do you know if a study has been published which lists how many people are reached with each game by device and OS?

Being an NFL fan the game looks fun. The American football themes provide a completely different background for the ABs format. Glad to see Rovio has a broad range of subject material (food products, racing, football, etc.) for development. This one may entice me to play through all the levels of a Facebook game. The MPE does have a different reaction so that would be a new aspect to play. Wonder if the MPE will have a price? If this game is a success on FB then maybe a device related game will develop. Rovio always does keep us guessing…which is good.

About the balloons: They already exist in AB Friends. And here they are not worth 5000 points, but only 100.

Rank: Sling God with 28145 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

I think something was lost in translation here. “Balloons” have existed in AB since the beginning and were worth 100. But the pig-shaped balloons not appeared in Carnival Upheaval and were worth 5000. Those were the ones I was referencing.

Rank: Master Slinger with 6520 points
By Chris (@chriss)

But the balloons at 0:12 in the video are not the pig-shaped balloons from Carnival Upheaval. They are different balloons (which already exist in AB Friends and are only 100 points). Or where else do you see balloons in the video?

I was comparing the green pigskins to the pig balloons.

Okay, it was a misunderstanding then. Yes, you are right. The football is worth 5000 points. You can clearly see it at 0:10.

In the description above it’s stated “we will cover all levels with walkthroughs”. Does this mean that a leaderboard will also follow?

If so, any plans to add a leaderboard for the FB Angry Birds Ultrabook version since you did do the walk throughs for that?

There are no immediate plans to add leader boards for those games.
Unless they are integrated to AB friends, which will give them a “permanent” nature/following, the mini web games typically do not have a LB.

Players from the eagles had this to say:Player 34: No the pig team is way too strong! What should we do? Player 5:kick the football… Player 34: what about the eagle… Player 5:Its our only change. Player 34: got it! WHAK! Player 5:look him go! Through the field, over the goal, through the snackbar in the sandwich from a fat lady! HYKE!

Most Web games cannot be ported over because they are using other companies’ trademarks. However, I wonder if Rovio could modify the games to keep them released in another form. Like AB Telepizza becomes AB Pizza. Just change the sprites and graphics with a logo to make it more generic. Change the Coke bottles in China Beats to smaller drums or something.. that kind of thing.

For all you smartphone users that complain about webgames and keep mentioning the concept of them on an app… hey! You guys get ME, faster updates, and we PC and Mac players get no ME and have to wait the longest for updates(next to more obscure devices.)! You guys should really be thankful for what you’ve got! In my mind the web games are Rovio’s treat for PC and Mac users.

Well, actually on my tablet i can play ABF, with the Adobe Flash Player. But now i can’t find AFP anywhere (the Google play app and the site) so i can’t play ABF anymore. For pc user you can try ME for one episode (poached eggs) at fujitv.angrybirds.com (AB sakura ninja)
