After having encountered great success on the iPhone and Android, the game Angry Birds will soon be available on Windows Phone 7. The Angry Birds will be launched on April 6 in the platform that will be joined by other games. Rovio, the company behind Angry Birds had initially differences with Microsoft, when the latter used the icon of Angry Birds for a promotional purpose during launch of WP7.
Although, Microsoft was initially of the opinion that apps do not necessarily contribute to the success of a smartphone platform, their present move seems that they have changed their mind. Software editor Rovio has continued their expansion strategy based around the success of Angry Birds, a hit on iOS and Android (where it is available for free with advertising) with numerous other products derived from this also having been released since.
The coloured birds will soon be able to cause trouble on a new platform which is non-other than Windows Phone 7, as was announced yesterday by Microsoft in San Francisco. The news is hardly a surprise thought as the Angry Birds icon had started to appear on presentations made available on the Windows Phone Marketplace download portal a few months ago.
Along with Angry Birds, other games that will hit beginning April 6 include: Doodle Jump, Plants vs. Zombies, Hydro Thunder Go, Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1, and geoDefense. Angry Birds, Hydro Thunder Go, and geoDefense are all being published under the Microsoft Game Studios brand.
