Angry Birds Rio Flies Into The App Store

Angry Birds Rio, the collaboration app between Rovio and 20th Century Fox as part of the marketing of the new movie ‘Rio’ has just been released today. In principle this new foray in the Angry Birds series of apps is the same as before but with a different story based on the premise of the movie. The app also features new achievements, ‘special hidden fruit’ and a total of 60 levels across two episodes but with more promised to arrive over 2011.

What happens when everybody’s favourite fierce fowl get caged and shipped to Rio? They get very angry!

In Angry Birds Rio, the original Angry Birds are kidnapped and taken to the magical city of Rio de Janeiro, where they eventually escape their captors and set out to to save their friends, Blu and Jewel – two rare macaws and the stars of the upcoming Fox motion picture, Rio. Angry Birds Rio will pair the physics-based gameplay of the original game with unique twists based on the film.

Angry Birds Rio is available on the iPhone and iPod Touch for $0.99, on the iPad for $3.99 and on the Mac App Store for $4.99
