The platform game Rovio Mobile, Angry Birds, has become the most successful mobile game in history after reaching the 100 million downloads. The founder and CEO of Rovio, Peter Vesterbacka, believes that traditional consoles will eventually disappear to be replaced by another type of mobile entertainment and social.
While most of its success can be pinned to strong gameplay and its fun theme, Rovio has worked harder to continue to introduce new Angry Birds content. Halloween and Christmas versions of the game were released and a special Rio version is being planned for March as is a St. Patricks Day edition.
Angry Birds is a puzzle video game developed by Finland-based Rovio Mobile in which players use a slingshot to launch birds at pigs stationed on or within various structures, with the intent of destroying all the pigs on the play-field. Inspired primarily by a sketch of stylized wingless birds, the game was first released for Apple's iOS in December 2009.
