Rovio, the Angry Birds maker, has announced a new game which is going to be the new title for the App Store. ‘Retry’ is a game which certainly seems to be inspired by its ancestor, not only in terms of gameplay but also the retro 8-bit graphics. But putting it next to the iOS hit Flappy Birds is definitely not going to do justice to the game and this is just equal to selling it short. The game is something far more than what Flappy Birds was as it’s clear from the mechanics shown off in the trailer.
Retry is going to be the first release from Rovio’s latest publishing arm “Rovio LVL 11”. And according to Gamasutra this publishing arm is going to stay here for a while and will witness the releases of new titles from Rovio’s as well which are probably not fit for the Angry Birds world. That means you shouldn’t expect to see a ton of cross-promotions with Retry and Angry Birds or any of the other Rovio’s titles.
The new game is already available for download on the App Store and can be downloaded on both iPhone and iPad but at the moment the only countries that can make use of the game are Canada, Finland, and Poland, though we can be sure that it will arrive in the US soon enough.
