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.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
