Rovio Classics: Angry Birds launches on Android and iOS

Rovio Classics: Angry Birds launches on Android and iOS

The original Angry Birds game is back!

Rovio Entertainment today announced that it has launched Rovio Classics: Angry Birds. It’s a complete recreation of the original Angry Birds game as it appeared in app stores. The game includes all chapters from the original game, along with all of the Easter eggs and extras found in the game at that time.

Originally built in Rovio’s proprietary game engine, Rovio Classics: Angry Birds is rebuilt from the ground up in Unity. According to Rovio this “creates a more sustainable platform” for the game on newer devices while “preserving the authentic 2012 Angry Birds experience.”

“While we were rebuilding Angry Birds, we took great care to preserve the feeling of the original Angry Birds game,” says executive producer, Sami Ronkainen. “We know our fans are a discerning bunch and will be able to pick out even small differences. Matching the gameplay, physics, and appearance of the game next to the original was crucial.”

Get Mighty Eagle for free

As an added bonus, the pig-destroying power-up Mighty Eagle is available to all players for free. Offered in the original Angry Birds game as an in-app purchase, the Mighty Eagle gives players a way to pass some of the more notoriously challenging levels. Players can also use this big bird to achieve a 100% Eagle Score in every level. That’s in addition to the classic three-star achievement.

Rovio Classics: Angry Birds is available now in the App Store and Google Play as a premium download for the retro price of $0.99.
