iPhone Success Angry Birds to Peck DS

Posted by James Newton

Even Hitchcock would be scared

If you've got an Apple device you might have engaged in a bit of Angry Birds, the fastest-selling game on the Apple Store having sold over 5 million copies in six months. If you haven't got an Apple device, there's no need to grab one just to play this game as it's on the way to DS.

In an interview with completely respectable British newspaper The Sun – yes, really – Chillingo co-founder Joe Wee – yes, really – revealed the game is on the way to DS, PSP and PS3. Although no further details were given, the smart money is on this being a DSiWare download with Chillingo having already brought Dracula: Undead Awakening to DSiWare with Sneezies in the works too.

A physics-based puzzler that sees you firing birds from a slingshot to demolish a wooden shack housing green pigs, Angry Birds' touchscreen controls and addictive gameplay make it one to watch for the coming months.

I've played the game on my friend's iPod and it's a lot of fun. Looking forward to it!

Heard a lot about this one, yet to actually try it. Hopefully Chillingo ports this one and retains some of it's soul this time, unlike Dracula: Undead Awakening.

This game works great on the idevices. I could definitely see it working on the ds, but I don't know how good it would be on the psp and ps3...

The game costs 0.79$/€ in the app store, so any price above 2$/€ and I wouldn't buy it.

i'm almost tired of iphone games be ported to dsiware, but at least it's better than a fart app. might get it

I hope they (and buy they i mean they) port the iphone game phyzios studio. That was the only thing that i regretted when i returned my ipod. :{

After hearing RawMeatCowboy talk about the game on the latest GoNintendo podcast, I really want to check this game out.

Yay. I have this game. ITS SO FUN!!! But its not like I would buy it again for a doubled price. (or a 5X price)

Good news. I already have the game on the iTouch, but I think this would greatly benefit from the DS's touch screen controls. The stylus would fare far better than thumbs in a game like this

Love this game on my iPod Touch, and it would absolutely work on DS. My only thing that I'll say is that on the iStuff, the developers are continually adding new levels to the game (for free in updates, not as DLC), to the point that this game now has more than 170 levels. And the game only costs $1. Even on DSiWare for 200 points the game might be able to match the iThings version in content at launch, but in a few months time the iPhone/Touch version will already have more levels.

But still, this game is awesome, so it's good that it's coming to DS(iWare presumably).

Great game but you know the price won't reflect the iPhone/iTouch's AppStore pricing. I daresay it won't have that much added content either...I could be wrong though;)

Ploughed through it on the iPhone though, lovely little game.

I played this on my big bro's iphone and once i did i couldnt stop playing and it was so addicting like crazy... i played it for like 1 hour and i was stuck on this game too hahaha... cant wait when it hits to the DS or DSiWare!



Chunky_Droid said:

My friend had me play this about 2 weeks ago, incredibly addicting, and as far as downloading new levels go, I only play games like this for 2 weeks before getting over them so DLC isn't really an issue with me.

Now I know what to do with my rogue 200 points on my account! (Assuming it IS 200 points)

Meh. I already have this on the iphone but if this version has new content, I may get it.
