Rovio and Resolution Games released the first Angry Birds mobile AR game for iOS. 

Thanks to Apple's ARKit, you can now play the iconic Angry Birds slingshot gameplay in mobile AR for the first time! Over 50 levels of gameplay with classic Angry Birds characters (Red, Bomb, Chuck and the Blues) are available at launch.

You can view 3D levels of the game through the iPhone or iPad and walk 360-degrees around levels to find weaknesses or hidden items. You also can line up a perfect shot by walking in close to get precise or stepping back to get a better view. 

Kati Levoranta, CEO at Rovio Entertainment, commented, ”We’ve received a great reaction following the announcement of Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs. Now that the game is available globally, we’re excited to see how fans react once they get their hands on it and experience how seamlessly Angry Birds slingshot gameplay translates to augmented reality.”

"AR creates interactive experiences like no other for gamers within their own environments,” said Tommy Palm, co-founder and CEO of Resolution Games. “And, when you mix the rich character engagements and gameplay dynamics Angry Birds fans have come to love, we think it's a recipe for an incredible amount of fun, and we can’t wait to see what players think."

Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs is now available worldwide in the App Store as a free download. The app size is about 191.2MB and requires iOS devices running iOS 11.0 or later.
