If you’ve been waiting for the real sequel to Angry Birds, the wait is over: the game is now out on Google Play and the App Store. It’s time to get flinging!
It’s been six years since the release of the first Angry Birds and since then we’ve seen fifteen entries to the series, some better than others. Angry Birds 2 is the first real direct sequel to the original game, and Rovio’s packed some new features into the game.
Angry Birds 2 features levels with multiple stages, spells to turn the tides in your favor, and even the ability to choose which bird you fling out. Not only that, but now players can compete with one another in the new player versus player Arena feature.
One thing that may be bad news to fans is Angry Birds 2 features a life system. If you lose a level, you lose a life — and it takes 30 minutes to recuperate lives. Luckily you can hold onto a maximum of 5 lives. But if you blow those all in one level, you’re going to have to wait a while to keep trying or pony up some cash.
Whether you’re hyped or just curious, you can get your hands on Angry Birds 2 right now on both the App Store and Google Play. Let us know what you think about Rovio’s new bird-flinging adventure in the comments below.
