Angry Birds Heikki Web App Fueling Up for June Launch


You heard it here first! Raise your hand if you remember who Heikki Kovalainen is. *One… Two…* OK, not too many, but some of you do, which is good. For those who don’t, Heikki Kovalaainen is a Finnish Formula One driver who is currently sporting an extraordinarily awesome Angry Birds helmet. We mentioned him and showed you his helmet a couple months ago.

In that post, we said:

Rovio has also partnered with Finnish Formula One driver Heikki Kovalainen, according to the racer’s website. This collaboration not only features Kovalainen in a nifty new helmet, but will also merchandise and a new Angry Birds web based game. […] The new web game will be launching sometime in the summer and will likely feature some cool level designs.

With the summer quickly approaching, and thanks to some clever sleuthing by @alfredhartojo, we present the official web app site: heikki.angrybirds.com. The site states that the app will start on June 18th, 2012, and of course we will post when it does and try to get walkthroughs online as quickly as possible. In the meantime, be sure to keep an eye on the many links included on the Heikki Angry Birds site, including Kovalainen’s personal website, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages.

Update: The launch was delayed until June 25th.

Chris, your say is wrong. Rovio went make this web game with discussion with Finnish F1 about this Heikki web game.

I sure hope it’s not a web based game. I’d hate for that to be….UGH

Cool! Looks funny! But a new web game? Why not a new app?

This should be good – F1 and Angry Birds combined! :)

Awesome! but it should have more levels than the AB volcano, pistachio etc and if its good then a new app should be made with F1 .But i wonder what it’s concept will be if its fast paced action including YB and Lazer .I hope it’s not about saving heikki from the pigs or heikki being a fast paced bird or Flinging formula 1 cars from slingshot

Looks interesting. Birds and pigs with race cars and race courses? Stimulates one’s imagination on game layout and design.

Rovio did not confirm if web based titles/partnerships are part of that list.

Will there also come out a New Angry Birds Game/App 2012?

By Ethan

More than 5 games came out in 2012. Space, Facebook, FujiTV,Cheetos, This, and maybe Amazing Alex

We don’t believe web apps count in the list.

By Angry_BrownBird (@supermad_bluebird)

I hope this could a racing game/ action game combined. I hope to drive some race cars and also fling some birds in a slingshot. Shooting pigs in racecars ( pigs in the racecars not slingshot in cars) would be fun. I’m looking forward to this game.

There’s nothing anywhere on Rovio’s Facebook, which is where this image claims to be from. Ergo, fan art

This looks exciting- my husband might actually get interested in Angry Birds and stop wondering what in the world is so enticing about the games :). On the other hand, I may actually think auto racing is something to watch! Thanks for the information, I will be looking for it in June. I like the picture; it will be a nice t-shirt. There will be some great merchandise from this game.
