Published on: 4th September 2014

Rovio Entertainment has launched the first Angry Birds Stella game. roviostella300

In it, Stella and her friends go on a quest to recover Stella’s stolen scrapbook and save Golden Island from Gale the Bad Princess and her pig minions.

Angry Birds Stella brings new twists to slingshot gameplay. There is a new set of characters with superpowers, a new setting on Golden Island, and a scrapbook where players can gather their achievements and unlock variations of the characters.

Heini Kaihu, head of studio, Rovio Entertainment, said: “Angry Birds Stella is going to be super fun for casual players, but will also challenge the most hardened Angry Birds veterans. The story and the world of Angry Birds Stella was hugely inspirational when designing the game, and it provided loads of great elements for the gameplay. We took great care to reflect the characters’ personalities through their superpowers, all of which require skill and practice to master. In this game Stella’s superpower is parkour, so she can leap from surface to surface. Willow’s Vortex Spin smashes through the baddies and as for the rest – well, we don’t want to spoil the surprise.”

Blanca Juti, the CMO of Rovio Entertainment, added: “As a brand Angry Birds Stella features daring characters, a playful and offbeat attitude, and a great sense of humor – all while dealing with real-life issues like friendship, including the occasional fall outs. Each character has strengths and flaws, and they are not afraid to let them show.”

Fans can experience Angry Birds Stella in games, animations, books, comics, and a range of consumer products. Angry Birds Stella comes with its own lineup of Hasbro’s Telepods figures which can be used for standalone play, and can also be teleported into the game as playable characters.

Angry Birds Stella is free to play and is out now on Apple’s App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore, BlackBerry World and Nook Apps all across the globe.
