A long time ago -- in mobile years -- in a country far, far away -- unless you live in Finland -- a small company called Rovio created a game called Angry Birds which went on to become a franchise, and is now trading slingshots for light-slings with the mother of all modern franchises -- Star Wars.
Bad Piggies enjoyed its first gameplay trailer today, revealing that players will build rickety vehicles to transport the pigs to the eggs they love so dearly. We had heard that Rovio was working on a new game that had something to do with the nefarious pigs in Angry Birds, and that game is quickly approaching release.
Rovio, the developer behind the massively successful Angry Birds franchise, has provided a sneak peak at the next installment in the epic battle between fowl and pork, and it looks like they're getting ready to turn the tables because -- Something PIG is coming!

It's already a runaway hit, having garnered 10 million downloads since launch.

In a recent interview, Rovio CEO Mikael Hed said that app piracy isn't a huge threat to their signature title, Angry Birds. In fact, it may help increase their popularity. Hed draws a lot of parallels to the music industry, and sees suing your fanbase as fundamentally "futile".

An Australian indie-pop band has created a music video for their latest track and the theme of the video is iOS gaming. In the video the band created real-life versions of hugely successful iPhone games like Angry Birds, Flight Control, Fruit Ninja, Cut the Rope and Plants vs. Zombies.
The band is called Hey Geronimo and after watching the video, it is obvious that they not only have a passion for music but iOS gaming too. The amount of work that appears to have gone into recreating these games into a real-life environment is very impressive.
