First launched in 2011, Angry Birds Rio is the third puzzle video game in the addictive and widely popular Angry Birds series. The game was initially released as a marketing tie-in with the 20th Century Fox animated film Rio, and was promoted along with the movie. However, Rovio continues to update Angry Birds Rio as they do with their other games, making it one of the top downloaded applications on both the App Store and the Google Play Store. Angry Birds Rio may have been available for quite some time now, it is after all, still around and you can now download it for free!
Compared to the original game, Angry Birds RIO comes with a new storyline where the original Angry Birds are kidnapped and taken to the magical city of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, where they eventually escape their captors and set out to save their friends, Blu and Jewel – two rare macaws and the stars of the hit motion picture, Rio. Angry Birds Rio pairs the physics-based gameplay of the original game with unique twists based on the film. It also upgraded with far more things to collect and added parallax scrolling to give the game quite a bit more visual depth than predecessor.
Angry Birds Rio features:
- Six fantastic episodes with 180 exciting levels, plus 24 new bonus levels!
- Completely new achievements!
- Special Hidden fruits – discover them all!
- Put your Angry Birds skills to the ultimate test in spectacular boss fights!
