The global phenomenon of Angry Birds has been unprecedented in the mobile app world. The original Angry Birds game has been downloaded over 250 million times and it is estimated that across all platforms and including their specials releases, Angry Birds has been downloaded in excess of 1 billion times. The latest release, Angry Birds Space has accumulated 35 million downloads in just thirty five days. Its success it thought to be down to a great combination of low price, comedy and addictive gameplay.
Based on this amazing success to date you can see why there’s an appetite to have Angry birds developed for Windows so that owners of the Nokia 710, Nokia 900 and Nokia 990 can also play one of the most popular games developed for smartphones.
The CEO of Rovio, Mikael Hed has stated that “Nokia is one of our longest-standing partners, and Windows Phone and Lumia are of strategic importance to Rovio. We are very committed to bring our games to Lumia devices, and are looking forward to delighting our fans on the Windows Phone platform.” This commitment is taking the form of creating a dedicated development team to create and design games for the Nokia Lumia to ensure that all future Angry Birds releases are also available for the Windows platform as well as also potentially developing games exclusively for the Lumia smartphones.
Going forward, the developers are also rumoured to be developing a series of fifty two 3 minute cartoons based on these popular bird characters.
