    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.

    And on our Roku! (well my kids do, I don't think your kids play on our Roku.. But I could be wrong and that would explain all the strange kids in my living room playing Angry Birds...)

    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 still open it every once in a while.

    Not as much any more, after buying Humble Bundle #3.

    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!
