Rovio's 'Angry Birds Toons' to Launch on March 16




Rovio has sold millions of copies of the games in its Angry Birds series, turning a simple game into a thriving franchise. The company has released several variants of its original Angry Birds app, including Angry Birds Space, Angry Birds Rio, and Angry Birds Star Wars, among others.

Today Rovio debuted its upcoming Angry Birds cartoon, titled "Angry Birds Toons." As described by the company, the cartoon is an animated series that takes place on Piggy Island.

People are still dumb enough to spend money on the same game over and over? Lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig.

They are great games but I just don't get all the spinoff stuff. To me it's all about the gameplay, I don't see the appeal of stuffed animals or any of the other merchandise.

They jumped the shark when they did the promotional tie in with Rio. Since then they've backed over the shark, pounded into the shark, been crushed by the shark, and been lined in a layer of silt on the bottom of the ocean.

Milk it until it runs dry... can't say I blame them. My kid still digs the game, I'm sure he'll enjoy this as well.

Normally I'd agree but you know... for $5 wasted you get quite a long ride. I don't play it often but as a time-killer I feel I get my money's worth. Mildly challenging and cheap. Rovio found the sweet spot with this.

I hope 'jump the shark' dies down soon. Fonzerelli agrees with me.

I'm actually surprised at how much I have spend on Angry Birds games - 'oh only 89 cents? Oh harmless.. click...' when I only really kinda enjoyed the first one. Last one was Star Wars, which was fun to a minimal extent but I wouldn't pay them any more money. They are right to milk but there is not really a nice product there any more.
