The Angry Birds franchise, with its simple gameplay mechanics, has been an absolute success throughout its past few years of existence. Let's face it, though: Rovio, the developer behind the series, probably took the whole concept a little too far, and the franchise has faced its demise for some angry gamers.

Save for the fact that these birds don’t fly, they truly are the high-fliers of the app store, having accomplished more than any other application or developer could ever dream of. At the top of the charts, four flightless birds reign over the app store. It seems birds, well the
I’ve been hearing about popular games being turned into movies, particularly with the number one series on the app store, Angry Birds. Recently, a comical trailer was released by YouTube user, Rooster Teeth, which showcases some storyline added to the game’s goal of killing pigs. Check it out below! I’m
While the rest of the iPA team is out in San Francisco at the much anticipated, MacWorld 2011 I’m still sitting at home trying to find as many solid, cool and new things that I can instead of moping about missing out on all of the fun. Just a few
In almost no time at all, the game rose to the top of the charts passing the dominating Angry Birds and claiming the number once spot. Well, after a week or so, the game has been moved down to second place, but that doesn’t take away from its ‘amazing game!’
Two releases I’ve been waiting for, and one coming out of the blue. Three developers have made a great impact on the app store today with their titles that all launched last night. Check them out below! Samurai II: Vengeance With its predecessor still very popular on the app store,
Chillingo, by far my most favorite iPhone developers and publishers, released their, and Zeptolab’s, (Parachute Ninja) new physics game a few days ago, and with already a whopping 2,000+ five star reviews. And along with that achievement, another that I’m sure the developers are amazed with is that the game
