Angry Birds Goes Analog

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jan 11, 2011 in Videogames |

It was perhaps the most popular iPhone game of 2010. Even I have to admit that I as hooked after finally deciding to give it a chance, and now it looks like Angry Birds will be moving beyond the digital realm in the form of a table-top game. I would have used the term boardgame, but there’s no board — only blocks, pigs, the birds and the sling you use to launch them. So how could that possibly work? Well, for those of you who are having a difficult time imagining it, check out the video above.

Apparently Rovio, the studio behind the game, has been trying to spread the franchise to other mediums, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up seeing an Angry Birds cartoon or film at some point. Until then, you can look forward to Mattel’s Angry Birds: Knock on Wood which will be hitting store shelves this May.
