First look by @mighty-red-1! Thanks.

Rovio released a new game called “Love Rocks” with “No Birds!”, co-created with Shakira and filled with challenging puzzles, shimmering jewels and exotic locales hand-picked by the pop legend.

Available worldwide on iOS and Android (via Googleplay), the game Features an innovative drop-3 gameplay mechanic, Love Rocks invites players to join Shakira on a globetrotting adventure to drop and link colorful jewels and glittering charms that create long chains, high scores – and lots of love. Beginning in Shakira’s home of Barcelona, players progress onward to the Taj Mahal, El Dorado and more in 150 levels soundtracked with Shakira’s beats – with plenty more levels to come in future updates.

The creators of Angry Birds have teamed up with pop superstar Shakira to create a brand new puzzle game filled with shimmering jewels, each with its own symbolism and unique power, exotic locales hand-picked by Shakira, and extra addictive drop3 gameplay! Accompany her on an adventure around the globe and drop and link colorful jewels and glittering charms to create long chains and high scores along the way. It’s simple to pick up and play!

Love Rocks is the first game ever to feature drop3 gameplay. Each turn presents you with three gems. Drop them in the right place to make long chains of linking jewels and score big! Just don’t stack them too high. It’s super easy to catch on, but can you beat Shakira’s record scores?

See Shakira‘s personal high score on each level! Think you can do better? Connect to Facebook and you can challenge your friends too. Who can get the farthest and earn the highest scores?

Challenge yourself in a variety of different levels. Unlock treasure chests, break mirrors, and reach the high score to clear levels – even take on Shakira’s own score in timed challenges!

Travel from Shakira’s home of Barcelona, to all of Shakira’s favorite places. Visit the Taj Mahal, El Dorado, and more in 150 levels – with plenty more to come in future updates!

I totally agree. I’m starting to lose interest in the Angry Birds series now which is sad as it used to be my favorite games, still really like Bad Piggies though and I’m happy they’ve started updating it again!

@bad-piggies-2 they need to update Seasons too! in fact, look at what I found on Rovio’s Facebook page while looking through the comments:
(user): But I want more new games please. Seasons Halloween 2015??

Angry Birds: Well, stay tuned for what’s coming to Angry Birds Seasons ;)
pretty exciting huh? that shows that even though it takes a while, Rovio DOES update past games

Nobody is thinking about the long abandoned ABSW2. That’s my favorite game and it hasn’t seen an update for almost a year :(.

@josm did you ask them when it would be released?

Why would Rovio leave ABSW2 without any updates? Same goes with ABSW1, Does that means Rovio has ran out of ideas? or they ran out of story plot ideas?

Remember Rovio released a video on Facebook about Shakira walk into the Rovio office? well, That’s a sad video for me, They’re talking about making a new game, and one of them got fired..

While they do update past games I would say they actually release new games more often than that happens… Angry Birds original hasn’t been updated for a very long time, Seasons is still mostly active, Rio has been very slow now with Rio 2 and has mostly been about adding new PU or Bird Coins etc., Space is kind of active I guess and the Star Wars games are not receiving any more updates at all. And then Stella which I think is discontinued.

@sonnykero if they ran out of storyline ideas for Star Wars 1 and 2, I imagine Rio will be up next, then they will run out of Transformers to make, then worlds to be in POP! (they add a new world every few weeks- too fast!) Before we know it, Angry Birds will DIE!

@partshade I think Rovio rushed through some parts of the original Star Wars trilogy, such as Kashyyyk (Chewbacca’s home planet from Revenge of the Sith) General Grevious’ ship (also from Sith), not to mention parts from the next 3 films, such as Jabba’s Palace (Return of the Jedi) and Alderran (Leia’s home planet)

@josm Plus about all this “no-Seasons-updates” business, Rovio actually REPLIED to me through a Tweet (Twitter):

me: what about Seasons? will something new come anytime soon?

Angry Birds: Oh yes, just wait and see ;)

so now we all know Seasons is still cared about- even if it means few updates anymore

@bad-piggies-2 Rovio WILL get back on track with the series, we just have to be patient

OK! now im REALLY interested!
Angry Birds (Twitter): Well, let’s just say next week Angry Birds Seasons turns 5 and we’re preparing a little something ;)

(the reason I keep commenting on all this Seasons business is that im just a huge fan of it)

A 3-matched puzzle game again?

First Juice Cubes, then Angry Birds Fight, and then Nibblers, and now Love Rocks, Why does game developers like to make 3-matched games a lot?

Rank: Flinger with 0 points
By Partshade (@)

@sonnykero You forgot one actually. Jolly Jam! So that’s 5 match-3 based games from Rovio.

Although considering that Juice Cubes and Jolly Jam is discontinued make me wonder how long Nibblers and Love Rocks will last. o.o

We will see, but Love Rocks can have long life just because of Shakira.
And Angry Birds (Stella) Pop! can be counted as six match-3 game as it’s also have simillar base.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Jolly Jam, why’d did they discontinued Juice Cubes and Jolly Jam? I mean, Jolly Jam has just been released, It it has been discontinued..

Well, Angry Birds Stella Pop is a bubble shooter type of game, I used to play this type of game (Forgot what’s the name of the game is) but it sure is fun! I

Was the game called Snood?

@sonnykero Nobody really knows why they discontinued them. But from what I’ve seen the games weren’t making much money. I mean do you ever remember the nest posting news about Jolly Jam and Juice Cubes updates? I don’t remember any. So Rovio probably just figured it wasn’t worth it.

Because it’s a very easy concept for people to grasp. Also, people can addicted to them and spend money on them.

I hope they make a Star Wars 3 game or upedating the ABSW2, adding Tatooine, DS, Hoth, CC, MOE and DS2, so we can play with Luke,Leia, Han, Chewie, Vader and many others that isn’t playable via normal gameplay

To say something positive: I actually think it’s a nice take on the 3-match genre (it isn’t even really 3-match) and I quite enjoy playing it.

Liked the game play of dropping the items into the puzzle. A bit different from slinging a ball, etc. The background and format is interesting. Liked the time to analyze the puzzle for the best fit.

Nice video Mighty Red, very detailed.
