Rovio, the Finland-based developer of mobile games for multiple platforms, has released another installment in its Angry Birds franchise. Angry Birds Rio hit the App Store last night and pits the various birds in previous versions against smugglers who have kidnapped two macaws. The macaws are characters from the upcoming Twentieth Century Fox animated film, Rio.
Rovio has released separate versions of Angry Birds Rio for the iPhone and iPad. Each offers 60 levels and new achievements, and new episode updates are planned throughout 2011.
The original Angry Birds has been a regular in the Top 200 Paid iPhone apps list and has reached the #1 spot in App Stores around the world.
