If you are addicted to Angry Birds raise your hand! They have been taking over the world. And it’s for good reason. Those cute, colorful little illiterate birds do warm the heart. We have watched them hurl through the air killing pigs.

On March 22nd, the game version of Angry Birds RIO was released in the App store. I tried out the Lite version today. Now it’s time for them to rescue their fellow birds in Angry Birds RIO. They release the birds from cages, kill wild monkeys, and more. The Lite version of the game is a total teaser with only 6 boards that I flew through quickly. The next level says it will be available in May. Doh! I have to make sure that I get the full version. The full version includes 60 new levels of addiction and fun.

About Angry Birds Rio the Game:

In Angry Birds Rio, the original Angry Birds are kidnapped and taken to the magical city of Rio, where they eventually escape their captors and set out to save their friends, Blu and Jewel – two rare macaws and the stars of the upcoming Fox motion picture, RIO.  Angry Birds Rio will launch with 60 dedicated levels, with more content to follow via app updates. Angry Birds Rio is available in the brand new Amazon App store for Android and on Apple’s iTunes.

And guess what?? There is a movie! And no, I don’t mean the Angry Birds Peace Treaty that has gotten one that gotten 5,734,986 views on YouTube! Although that is worth watching. 🙂  I won’t link it here. You can go and find it.


About the Movie:

From the makers of the hit ICE AGE series comes RIO, a comedy adventure about taking a walk on the wild side.  Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota.  Blu and Linda think he’s the last of his kind, but when they learn about another Macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu’s female counterpart.  Not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers.  With the help of street smart Jewel, and a group of wise-cracking and smooth-talking city birds, Blu escapes.  Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had.
