Rovio’s Angry Birds series has seen many forms over the years. It all started with a great slingshot game, but in recent years, Rovio has trampled water with low-stakes bubble poppers and match-3 titles, which is hardly worth writing home about. Surprisingly, Rovio has just announced the soft launch of Angry Birds Journey, and to my amazement, it looks like Rovio has finally gone back to its roots with a new post in the core sling hot series.
Above you can find the trailer for Angry Birds Journey, which briefly shows the game in action. As you can see, Angry Birds has gone back to its roots with the return of slingshot mechanics. Like the original game, you spend your time casually shooting birds in towers made up of blocks and pigs. As this is a puzzle, solving each step becomes more and more challenging as you progress, and as each bird brings its own unique skills to the table, you will use these skills to help you solve the game̵
Now, it’s worth remembering that Angry Birds Journey has arrived as an early access release, and right now it’s only available in select regions. Only those living in the US, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Canada and Poland install the title. Currently, there is no word on when Rovio will expand access to the rest of the globe. Since this release came pretty much out of nowhere, I still think we’ll probably see a worldwide release sooner rather than later (pending the success of this early access launch).
Angry Birds Journey is a free-to-play release, which means the game is packed with in-app purchases, and yes, much to everyone’s concern, they range up to $ 99.99 per game. Product. These purchases are primarily for in-game currency packs, though there are also a few starter packs that offer currency, endurance, and a few other items. This means that there is an endurance system in the game, although starting this endurance is unlimited, but like all endurance systems it will eventually gate gameplay, which is always sad to see.
So there you have it. Rovio has returned to its gameplay with bread and butter after the eye with the early access release of Angry Birds Journey in the Google Play Store. So if you were a fan of the original, you can get a kick out of Journey, even if the greedy revenue generation and endurance system could hold people back, and rightly so, as there is no real need to make money on such a simple game. in this way. But hey, no one said that Rovio actually grew a conscience, but at least the game is free, so if you’re interested, you can easily take a look.
