Angry Birds makers working on new Angry Pigs game

Rovio is reportedly planning to launch a new app in the pigs' perspective before the end of the year

Rovio, the developers behind Angry Birds, are working on a sequel to the best selling app that will be played from the pigs' perspective.

That's according to Pocket-lint, which claims to have seen pictures of the app in action. The report reveals that the app is expected to be released before Christmas.

The story of the original Angry Birds, for those of you that haven't played it, is that the villainous pigs have stolen the birds' eggs, prompting the birds take revenge by launching themselves at the pigs' castles and destroying the little green characters.

The brand new app, though, will see players helping the pigs protect the eggs they've stolen. It will still feature the catapult and wooden and stone structures, claims the report, but will feature different types of pig with various strengths and skills.

Angry Birds has already seen huge success, and, as of May this year, has been downloaded more than a billion times. There's even an Angry Birds Land theme park in Finland, which includes 12 rides, an adventure course and themed restaurants and cafes.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
