Racers take your marks, get set and Angry Birds Go! is coming to app stores on December 11th, which is the 4th birthday of the original Angry Birds title and the 85th birthday of @BirdLeader! (I’m joking about his age of course, but being the youngest member of staff, I have that luxury. Love ya, BL!)
Rovio has announced that the app will be released for iOS, Android, Windows 8 Phone, and Blackberry 10. Please note that this is later than the release date of October 31st included on TELEPOD packaging.
Included in Rovio’s blog is the price: FREE! We expect — as is the current trend in nearly all apps nowadays — that in-app purchases will be available to upgrade your karts more quickly. However, you should be able to unlock most or all features via normal gameplay.
What’s unique about Angry Birds Go! compared to other kart-racing apps is that each character has a unique ability. Sure, in classics like Mario Kart, features such as speed, turning radius, and strength varied by character. But Angry Birds Go! goes beyond this, adding an actual unique, activatable ability to each character. For the birds, these mimic their “classic gameplay” abilities: Chuck rockets ahead, Stella protects herself in a bubble, etc. It will be interesting to see whether the Pork Side has any significant advantage or disadvantage over the birds.
Of course, you can expect AngryBirdsNest to keep you up-to-date on all news related to Angry Birds Go! as the countdown moves forward. If you can’t wait, look for the special “countdown app” coming to app stores at the end of the month, which will allow you to import your TELEPODs for a first look!
Also, keep an eye out for more updates in the nearer future!
Gee, this is the second AB game that makes me excited! Can’t wait for this!
Which was the first?
Wait, if all birds/pigs powers go with their personality or ability, wouldn’t Hal’s ability be a disadvantage?
My idea on Hal’s ability will make him spin through everyone to the front. As said just an idea.
On the trailer, a few seconds before bubbles ability is shown, u can see hal shooting boomerangs at his sides and at the front, like bloomerang’s plant foods ability from PVZ2
I cannot find Hal in this trailer. Maybe you could send me a screenshot?
@folly08 at 19seconds.
I meant gameplay.
It doesn’t actually show him driving. Didn’t show the Black Bird driving either.
Hi folly,try and find Hal when the video is in HD. have also seen Terrence in Hal’s vehicle throwing a boomerang at Hal.
I think Hal has some other power.
hal really has boomerangs shooting. 0:52. Hard to see>
Really excited about this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@AMslimfordy what will the countdown app for angry birds go be for?
It’s supposed to be a preview on how the real Angry Birds Go! will be like. It’s also a jumpstart to help u get rewards when the real app hits stores. However, u will be limited to what u can do in the countdown app if u don’t have the TELEPODS.
Oooh, I’m very excited! Can hardly wait to get this new app, whooop-whooop!!
This game is going to be awesome!!
It will be a change in the style of the game.I think the birds & pigs were bored with fighting with each other. So they decided to race.
almost christmas! keeping an eye out on my google play
http://www.rovio.com/en/news/blog/411/start-the-countdown-to-angry-birds-go/2013 Today the “Angry Birds Go! Countdown App” Released!
I know you guys are busy today, but are you planning to make a post about the AB GO Countdown app? Not sure what it’s real purpose is other than to encourage people to buy telepods?
I can’t find another purpose, to be honest.
Well, I’ve been running it when I’m doing other things. It seems that the further you get, the fewer points you get without telepods. Presumably the points will be worth something after the real game is available? But there doesn’t seem to be any info on how many races there are, or how many points are available if you do or do not use telepods. As far as I can see, it’s totally random how many points you get for each race, since there is no way to know which racers will get the most points.
Angry Birds Go! Launches in New Zealand App Store Ahead of Worldwide Release
Yep. Noticed that too. And as I have suspected based on the 3-D graphics I’ve seen in the preview, it’s only compatible with devices with iOS 6 and above, although not recommended for iPod Touch 4 because of the 3D graphics.
For those who wonder which karts that will win in Countdown app, I have the tips ;) :
Seedway is good for : Red and bomb (big bang & bigbang SE)
Rocky road is good for : king pig, blues and Terence
Air is good for : Bubble and Foreman Pig (I’m 70% sure)
Stunt is good for : chuck, Hal, Matilda
Looks like the C-ABGo score can be traded with bird coins in the ABGo.
Now I on level 6 with 36610 score :)
That’s all Think about the countdown app. I hope you enjoy it :)
Rank 5 of the top 5 in-app purchases is Big Bang Special Editioon for 64.99 dollars!!! :-0
Is there a difference between New Zealand dollars and US dollars?
