First Look at “Angry Birds Holiday Island” – Brand New Farming Game by Rovio!

Welcome to Holiday Island – a piggy paradise so relaxing, so intoxicating, the pigs will forget all about the eggs! Or at least that’s the plan… Rovio’s latest game, Angry Birds Holiday Island, takes you to a brand new farming adventure where you manage a beautiful Resort … for the Piggies! What!?! No Pig Popping?
Angry Birds Holiday Island has been soft launched in the Philippines only.

The Plot:

After years of fighting with the pigs, the Angry Birds are ready to put the slingshot aside and take a different approach. Your goal: keep those piggies fed, happy, and (most importantly) distracted from their intense desire to steal and eat the eggs!

From the Appstore:

Help the characters of the Angry Birds Movie develop the perfect holiday destination for the pigs and dissuade those green thieves from their egg snatching ways once and for all!

Holiday Island needs a manager!
There is a beautifully 3D rendered island in the ocean just waiting for the right manager to whip it into shape. That could be you!

Create the ultimate piggy vacation destination and behavior realignment facility.
Yes, it’s a thinly veiled attempt to reprogram the piggies’ brains, but they don’t have to know that! They just want tomato soup baths – and I don’t think anyone will argue with giving these stinkers a bath…

Cooperate with friends!
Share pigs with your friends in game and both of you will get increased rewards! Can’t provide what a pig is asking for? Send it over to a friend and they will surely be happy to help you out!

Develop your island with irresistible attractions and services.
Deck out your island with a grooving dance floor, a luxurious spa, a hip cafe and much more! Who would have thought the pigs were so concerned with body hair management?

Grow crops and produce goods to keep your island running.
Make your island a self-sustaining piggy paradise!

Upgrade your stuff!
Increase your goods production, and your pig serving capacity. Remember: every pig served is a pig not trying to steal those precious eggs.

Unlock new areas in the island and expand your business.
Clear out fresh land for that new yoga studio, or coffee shop.

    why can’t you have it so we can play them on our computers, I prefer the larger screens of my laptop and desktop computer, then trying to squint at a small tablet or phone screen… love your games but…..

    And someone could thought that Agri Birds was a joke…

    Idea about Manager was going to appear at some point. I can’t wait to day when Rovio will make Angry Birds Tower Defense game… At least they finally finished making new match-3’s.

    Idea of the new game:
    1.Make a game [farming/manager genre is ideal to it]
    2.Put a lot of IAPs
    3. …
    4.Profit!

    But honestly, someone will play it? I’d like to know experience from someone who already has access to Appstore.

    And don’t forget the final touch, use the AB movie’s “Deformed but realistic” look to birds and pigs

    ANOTHER of these stupid farming and town/city/whatever-managing games that have been produced in thousands by other companies before?!? ._.
    No sorry… not for me.

    Technically speaking, almost all the games that Rovio has been releasing lately are based off other genre as well. AB: Goal is sports simulation, Pop is bubble shooter, Transformers is arcade shooter etc. There are also other games out there like AB Action.

    The only types of games Rovio hasn’t released up until now are card games and FPS/TPS. Other than that, they have hit pretty much all manner of game genre out there.

    That’s why Goal! and POP! leave me cold too. :P I mean, I admit I have POP! on my device – but my enthusiasm for it has cooled down.
    I’d put Action! aside in your list – while it’s a pinball-beat-’em-up game it’s neither really a pinball game nor really a beat-’em-up game which makes it kinda unique. (That said, I’d love a pure AB Pinball game! The only Pinball game on my phone right now has become rubbish over the years)
    Also, I’ve always said Fight! is just another Match-3 game – but looking at actual footage Rovio has put elements into it that make it slightly different from other Match-3 games. Still struggling to download it though.

    Holiday, however, looks like a PURE copy of other farming/island/city simulators, just with a different skin.

    FPS and Angry Birds? Hell no. They should stay out of card games too.
    What I’d like to see is a tower defense game. They haven’t had that either. I love Plants vs. Zombies but unfortunately the second PvZ game has gone downhill in terms of quality. Tower defense would fit perfectly anyway – how about having the player play as the pigs again, like in Bad Piggies? I don’t always wanna play as the good guys. :P

    Well so u know rovio does have a tower defence, clash of clans style game, it’s just not a part of the ab series. It is a very, very, very fun and underrated game though. It’s called plunder pirates if u r interested in downloading it.

    I just hope Rovio doesn’t run dry on ideas any time soon…the entire series could be in trouble if that ever happened!

    Notice how all the new games have the movie look? I think the old bird designs are being retired. :(

    Rank: Champion with 3260 points
    By RedYoshi45 (@smwforever45)

    Games like Epic and AB2 have the birds’ Toons looks too which aren’t the original bird looks. The original bird designs are long retired (probably only alive in Friends, Seasons and the occasional ABO update).
    I’d wish Rovio stayed with the Toons looks though. I don’t like the movie looks. :(

    Rank: Gold Flinger with 9570 points
    By Partshade (@partshade)

    Same. Wonder how long it’ll be before the bird designs in-game get changed? I have a bad feeling that Rovio will do that for Original, Seasons and basically any game still being updated.

    Rank: Champion with 3260 points
    By RedYoshi45 (@smwforever45)

    The games using the original designs? I don’t think they’ll be changed. It already took them long enough to convert all birds to Retina graphics when the iPhone 4 was first released – I doubt they’d put this much work into the original games now anyway. They’ve got AB2 and all the side games to focus on.
    Likewise, I don’t think games using the Toons designs would be completely overhauled. Maybe AB3 would use the movie graphics. But that’s long into the future. And maybe the hype has died out by then.

    WHEN CAN I PLAY. I LOVE THESE TYPE OF GAMES

    I’m still waiting on an Angry Birds Harry Potter. Hopefully wouldn’t have the birds/pigs in their new design, though. I’m thinking along the lines of the good ol’ days of ABSW

    Hopefully people will like this new game better than the Action one. I see the reviews and ratings on google play and yikes!! :( not their best AB game

    how about if you could make an angry birds game called Angry birds crossy road?

    Rank: Champion with 3260 points
    By RedYoshi45 (@smwforever45)

    Sure, and Flappy Angry Bird next?

    We REALLY don’t need Angry Birds to cover every single game concept.

    This game may appeal to those that like Farmland type of games and that is great because now they have one in the Angry Birds theme. Looks like Rovio is covering all the other types of games that have been previously released with there own spin and theme. In the video the game looks “flat” with little excitement of the tratditional theme and plot.

    By welshwitch55 (@welshwitch55)

    With the exception of graphics, this is almost identical to King’s Paradise Island. And probably a couple dozen other farming games. But servicing the pigs for money…..Rovio needs to rethink that term. Makes the spa sound like a bathhouse or massage parlor.

    Does anyone know if this game is still on? There are many people who are saying that it’s been pulled from the phillippines App Store, and I can’t find any recent news about it.

    I certainly hope that the game hasn’t been cancelled, it actually looked pretty decent to me…

    Is this game available Android in USA. I love angry birds and city building games. This looks so fun.

    Sorry Guys I love Angry Birds, the whole Birds v Pigs is what makes it, Seeing this is killing the franchise. If you want to make an interactive game where you play with friends, it should be where you defend your Island from the Pigs. We the Birds and we have to make an island and stop the pigs getting on it. You visit friends islands to help them. This allows the facebook social media interaction. You have to level up challenges and weapons, complete tasks to make money to get better weapons. And if they take your eggs, you go and fight to get them back ask friends to help. Build a bigger and better island for your Birds, the bigger the island the more Birds, the more Birds the more eggs to protect, the more eggs to protect then the more weapons needed. You ideal of Birds helping Pigs is not angry Birds.
