Default Is Angry Birds Dead?

I was wanting to know if Angry Birds has ran its course? Is it still going strong or are people moving on to other games. I noticed that Rovio came out with a game called Amazing Alex (which is fun) but is the game a sign of Rovio losing customers.

Funnily enough my dental tech mentioned to me just yesterday that she knows AB is a little old hat but she still loves playing it daily.

I think Rovio did say that they were pretty much done with the AB franchise.

Amazing Alex is not their original creation - they purchased the game from someone else then tarted it up.

Not sure, they launched Angry Birds Space not that long ago, which I really enjoyed. Loved their implementation of gravity/orbit.

I read some where that Rovio is making a game where you play as the pigs.

My kids all still love playing all of the Angry Birds and I love Space, I just wish I had bought HD for my tablet instead of the regular one.

lol... thanks for sharing the article. To be honest the only time i ever play Angry Birds is on Google Chrome. Unfortunately, I end up getting tired of replaying the levels because I'm unwilling to pay for other versions. I actually wanted to take a crack at making games myself and its been pretty fun so far.

I downloaded angry birds space and it is fun but I just do not find it as good as when I downloaded angry birds and angry birds rio (my favorite). I think they have ran there course so hopefully something new will come from that company.

I agree. The space version revived the game concept a little bit for me.

Angry Birds Space was pretty cool. My girlfriend and I used to enjoy playing it, but we don't play nowhere near as much as we used to. We probably haven't played in at least 6 months :/

I know this thread is pretty old, but Angry Birds seems to be still going pretty strong at least in terms of developer support - they released a special Mars Curiosity rover update and a Philadelphia Eagles variant just days ago.

Even as a dead game, I'm sure its still making more money than 99.99% of the games out there, so I guess its all a matter of perspective. I think I heard something about an Angry Birds theme park once too.

I still love chunking those birds and do regulary in Space, Seasons, Rio and with Friends. Now I'm also apparently a mechanic building transportation for bad pigs. lol. My new bf keeps saying, I don't understand why they're angry. I tried explaining about the eggs but I think he thought I was yanking his chain. I finally let him see the pics that go together showing the pigs with the eggs and a skillet....then he said.."ooohhh". lol, dork.

I think no, "Angry Bird game" is still popular like as was earlier. I still play this game once in a day.

Stopped playing when space came out, the concept was the stupidest thing I've ever heard of. Wasn't even worth wasting $0.99 on. I have all the other games and played the snot out of them, until space was announced.

it's the same course as Pac-Man in the 80s once Pac-man Plus came out (which was a really stupid port of the original Pac-Man). also reminds me of Zynga after Farmville got so complicated that it became unplayable.

Like Pac-Man and of course, Oregon Trail, Angry Birds will likely be a remembered piece of history, sometime later in the future.

last i checked the AB games only cost money on iOS. yet another Android perk-they're all free!

Thing is, AB is more than just a game now. There's t-shirts, backpacks, CANDY, etc. It's an industry. Problem is, I hate it.

YES YES YES this is the BEST angry birds version. I love star wars and they have done a great job on this version... It's free for android yet kinda sorta not? It appears you have to pay for the Jedi levels, at least to my recollection... Kind of a bummer I thought this was free for android because Google pays them for it? Well at least there's no ads in the levels...

ive not got far enough in it yet to need to pay but i do agree that angry birds star wars is absolutely brilliant!!

They've really hit a winner combining it with the star wars franchise

Im even debating forking out the 1.99 for the HD version when my phone comes back from repair next week.
