Tweet Don’t be alone: Angry Birds Go! brings fans together with new party mode feature Currently available as one-on-one, local multiplayer feature will evolve to allow group play.
Rovio have announced the downhill racing game now features a party mode where two players can play against each other on different devices connected through WiFi. For the first time in an Angry Birds title, fans can get competitive and play one-on-one with friends on different devices, in the same game, at the same time and in the same location.
"In trying to make friendly multiplayer happen in our games, there was no question that Angry Birds Go! would be the perfect fit. Anyone who played console games as a child remembers the excitement when playing with a group of friends. This is our goal with Angry Birds Go!" said Wilhelm Taht, Head of External Products at Rovio.
The party mode is an exciting development for Angry Birds Go!, bringing a truly social aspect to the Angry Birds mobile gaming experience for the very first time. Easier and more casual than ever, fans can race against their friends in Angry Birds Go! over the same network. Currently available in one-on-one player mode, the feature will be developed to allow multiple party play, allowing groups of friends to race against each other, and many other features.
To experience party mode first hand, download Angry Birds Go! for iOS or Android.
Tweet On April 25th we open our scariest attraction ever. To tell the people of Stockholm that they are about to face their worst nightmares we made a spectacular April Fool's prank. To release our new haunted house, a terrifying place called House of Nightmares, we planted a scary surprise in a Stockholm cinema.

Tweet Kinetic collage for the Galaxy Note 4 S-Pen. Ad agency Heaven and the directing duo Vallée Duhamel rolled out this quirky video set to electronic music for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 S-Pen. Titled "Creativity at Work," it makes a sort of kinetic collage out of all the arts and crafts materials the S-Pen can emulate. This is one of those times where I think the "Making-of"-video is more interesting than the final product. What do you think?
Tweet Following in the footsteps of other omnipresent consumer brands with something arty to prove, Pepsi MAX made a huge mess with mousetraps and Ping-Pong balls for a video it calls "Chain Reaction." With the help of London filmmakers HarrimanSteel, a perfect grid of mousetraps was laid out, with a Ping-Pong ball balanced on each one. After all that work, a single ball was launched under some of the most dramatic lighting I've ever seen to upset the whole display. The ball then rolls down a big science-museum funnel into another Ping-Pong ball/mousetrap installation, this one with colored spheres. All this happens to the beat of music that sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks' take on dubstep, and I don't know how to feel about that at all. I shouldn't like the more pretentious visual choices being made here, but I do, because it's fun to watch huge companies clutch their pearls at the thought of being a constant, low-humming presence in the back of consumers' minds. I'm not sure it justifies the filmmakers hugging at the end like they've landed a rover on Mars, though. VIA
