Rovio has been teasing the imminent arrival of Angry Birds Epic for quite some time now and the game has finally gone live today in the Play Store. This is a shift from the conventional bird slinging madness that ensues in every Angry Birds game as Rovio is now transitioning into the turn based RPG genre with this latest AB instalment.
The character set remains unchanged and users will find the same list of birds that they’re already accustomed to, barring a few surprises. Expectedly with the RPG genre, there will be a back story to hook you onto the gameplay. We won’t spoil the surprise for you and let you discover it on your own.
The reviews on the Play Store page are fairly mixed at the moment and some are even suggesting that the game doesn’t run on ART (or Android Runtime) and that it requires Dalvik, which is a little surprising as most games in the franchise, including the recently launched Angry Birds Go, are compatible with the architecture.
Overall, Angry Birds Epic is the much needed instalment in the franchise and might just be enough to get Angry Birds fans back in love with the franchise. Download the app from the link below and drop your thoughts.[Angry Birds Rio – Play Store]
