Is a Level Creator Coming Soon to Angry Birds?

This morning Rovio posted an interesting image to their Facebook page. The picture shows a pig and three thought bubbles with different structures inside. The caption reads, “Decisions, decisions, decisions”, meaning he’s deep in thought about which structure would best protect him from the incoming birds (knowing the pigs it will likely be the worst one). While most people simply look at this and think it’s another cute image by Rovio, I think it might be teasing a possible new feature: a level creator!

I may be wrong, but I figured I’d throw it out there and see what you all think? Is this just another fun image by Rovio, a new feature, or possibly even a whole new game?

A couple final thoughts. I honestly have no idea if this image means anything or if I’m reading too far into it. I know a level creator has been rumored for a long time and is something the fans have been clamoring for, but this is my no means proof that it is coming. I really dig the level creator in Amazing Alex, but on the flip-side I am not a big fan of the ability to share solutions. In my opinion it detracts from the gameplay as it makes it too easy to just, “take a quick peek”.

    If they do release a level editor, either a stand alone or one within the app, then they should also release every level they ever created at the same time, else someone will beat them to the punch and simply recreate the levels that they haven’t released.

    Sounds like a plan, especially when you throw Angry Birds Triolgy into the mix.

    I think this is a hint for the Pigs taking a revenge on the birds!

    actually, the bird did a revenge on pig for stealing their eggs…

    so it’s a revenge for the revenge?

    I would have thought Rovio would save this for a whole new app. But it might help improve the original Angry Birds ratings on the app store.

    Either a level creator, or a way to submit suggestions to Rovio for future levels.

    Not that I’m suggesting in any way that I think Rovio has run out of ideas for new levels, but perhaps this is a method by which they can solicit new ideas from the huge base of AB players out there. This would let them market new levels created via user input, or somesuch.

    Speculation yes but my first thought was similar to truckdrivers. A way for the customer base to create new ideas. The twist is that it is not for the birds but for the pigs.
    Who knows, it could be a preview for a level creator or a new game that the pigs have the advantage of better protection from the birds.

    By Takacs David

    yes… creating your own levels is much cooler than firing pigs from slingshot.

    It was one of my suggestions when I completed an Angry Birds Friends survey. Even before Amazing Alex I thought that challenging others to your levels would be fun. With the apparent success that Amazing Alex has had with level creator, I would not be surprised. Not to mention that when you start making levels, you agree to allow Rovio to use them. Think about how much easier development would be with thousands of new levels being created a day by fans. Let’s hope this is true.

    I have to agree – I think AAlex may have given them a chance to see how a level creator would be received. It’s very likely going to be something they develop for a “premium” service.

    If it did cost another $1 – would you pay for it?

    Rank: Hardened with 730 points
    By Aaron_MN (@aaronkmn)

    I would pay $1 for it without even thinking twice.

    On a related note, while I love free apps, I’ve always found it odd how many people complain about paying $1 for an app. I have a friend who will pay $10 every week to watch a movie (2 hours of entertainment), but shudders at paying $1 for hours of entertainment on his Android.

    i hope they dont bring a level creator!!! i dont know why but i belive that it just doesnt fit angry birds!!! i think amazing alex was already a big step backwards and i’m convinced that a level creator would just be another big fail (just my opinion).

    By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)

    I agree! Definitely a level creator. Sort of a combination of Amazing Alex and AB. I think it would have to be more complicated than AA, otherwise it will be too easy. Items shown in photo would make much too trivial a game.

    Does anybody think that it will be available only for iOS.And just saying there is a level creator for AB it is just that it is fan made and I don’t think you can find it that easy.

    Not to pick a nit, @birdleader, but shouldn’t the sentence about piggie defense read “incoming birds” vs. “incoming pigs?”. Not that the pigs aren’t fratricidal, or anything, it just seems to make more sense that way.

    “Fratricidal,” how’s that for a $100 word, eh?

    Perhaps this has to do with the Angry Pigs game. Because the story behind that is to keep the birds from getting the eggs. I don’t know. Anything is possible. IMO – the graphics seem to be a mixture of AA & AB. So maybe the Angry Pigs game will have that kind of look.

    P.S. I just read what @iammighty wrote. I think we are on the same page here.

    Rank: Master Slinger with 6145 points
    By rdnzlrips82 (@rdnzlrips82)

    After further study and thought, this is what I have:
    To keep the eggs safe, you will have to build the structures. The birds will launch in premeditated flight patterns. Therefore, this is more than likely the Piggy game. Hopefully it’s not too derivitive of AA. But perhaps that’s what Rovio had in mind when they purchased the rights to Casey’s Contraptions.

    Yah that would be sweet. Rovio has had so many improvements. I think it would also be cool if they did my pic(if it’s not the dinosaur one, wait for some time.

    This would take AB to a whole new level. Anyone could create a new level, given the tools, and submit it? I like to think of the process as a sim/paint kind of thing, with pictures of all the different kinds of blocks you can pick up and place, to build your level. Have an “advanced” panel for the really hardcore enthusiasts! If Rovio has not thought of this, i would highly recommend someone shooting them a line with the suggestion.

    I can also see this becoming an overload to facebook/rovio. Maybe users could submit their drafts to rovio, then rovio could then decide. And, all friends can see each others’ levels, and play them.
