[Version History]

Angry Birds Go! is a kart racing game based on the original game. It was developed by Exient Entertainment and published by Rovio Entertainment.

It is the seventh installment of Angry Birds, and was released on November 26, 2013, in New Zealand, one day following in Australia, and on December 11, 2013, worldwide. A countdown app was released on October 31, 2013.

The game involves downhill racing, with upgrade-able vehicles and character-specific powers. The game also uses the Telepods like Angry Birds Star Wars II, as in karts that can be 'teleported' into the game.


The first teaser picture.

The first information about the Angry Birds Go! appeared on June 12, 2013, while Rovio posted a small preview image and the game. A few days later, it was also announced that the game will be released for iOS and Android (later it was announced that the game was also available on Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry). Before the beginning of the game production company Rovio has signed an extended license agreement with Hasbro, which they produce toys and games under the brand Angry Birds. Hasbro will be involved in the development of Angry Birds Go!, and in conjunction with LucasArts continue working on Angry Birds Star Wars. Development lasted long enough for a long time the news about the game almost did not come (probably due to the development of Angry Birds Star Wars II).

The countdown app icon.

On October 31, 2013, Rovio released a countdown app called Countdown to Angry Birds Go!, where you can get acquainted with the characters, TelePods, little acquainted with the gameplay, and watch game trailers. It is also possible to gain points, for example, going every day to the application.

On November 26, 2013, the game came early in the New Zealand App Store. One day following in Australia, and then it became available on December 11, 2013, worldwide.


As of Summer 2019, Angry Birds Go! has been removed from the App Store and unlisted from the Play Store in every country but Zimbabwe. While Rovio initially said that this was for testing purposes [1] [2], they said on there support page that they wanted to stop production on this game, along with many other Angry Birds games released before Angry Birds Transformers, to focus on the newer titles. [3]

However, on June 22, 2021, Rovio announced that they will be remaking some of their older titles for newer hardware.[4] While Angry Birds Go! was not mentioned, a survey has started popping up for players of the game, asking about improvements they want added in the game, so there is a great chance the game is a priority for Rovio. The survey can be taken from this link.

Angry Birds Go! Create


Angry Birds Go! Create was a web game created by Goo Create and Rovio Entertainment as part of Code Week. It was released somewhere around October 2014, the production took about 4 months. There's not much information about this game since it's currently shut down for both desktops and tablets.

The gameplay is where the players build their own racing games and share them with your friends.


Angry Birds Go! Turbo Edition


Angry Birds Go! Turbo Edition was a rework version of the original Angry Birds GO!, released in August 2019. It was exclusive to play on Hatch, a cloud gaming service. Game is now unplayable, due to the closure of Hatch on December 31st, 2020 and of Hatch Kids on April 1st, 2021.



Angry Birds Go! Turbo Edition Exclusively on Hatch


Note: The plot was removed in the v2.0 update.
The story starts when the pigs are ready to race on Piggy Island, while the birds are looking down on them. The Chronicler Pig is making the prizes. The piggy that is in third place will win shoes, the second place piggy will win an apple, and the winner will win a big cake. The birds see the cake and want to eat it, making them join the race with the pigs.


The main menu of the game.

In Angry Birds Go!, there are various racing modes and many characters to race with and against. There are 12 playable characters in the game. The very first character that you get to race with is Red. You can recruit more characters by completing events. Each event has a required CC (cake capacity), so make sure you increase your kart's CC by upgrading it.

v2.0 has massive changes from v1.0. The campaign has been redesigned and introduced with new features such as energy system, a new upgrade system for karts, new tournaments (unlocked at Rank 4), new challenges, and a ranking system where you earn XP to level up and unlock from the boxes (ABGO UnlockBox.png) such as coins, new karts, and tickets. (Rank 50 is a max rank)

There are five upgrades:

Acceleration (ABGO AccelerationV2.png), Handling (ABGO HandlingV2.png), Strength (ABGO StrengthV2.png), Top Speed (ABGO TopSpeedV2.png), and Grip (ABGO GripV2.png).

Once you do, you will get a new kart every time you upgrade them with blueprints.


  • Race (ABGO RaceFlag.png) - A classic race with up to seven other racers. To pass this event, finish in the top 3.
  • Time Boom (ABGO TimeBoom.png) - Dodge obstacles and get to the finish line before the time-bomb explodes.
  • Fruit Splat (ABGO FruitSplat.png) - Race against minion pigs and splat the fruits until the bar is empty. Sub Zero has a counterpart of this called "Ice Splat", where players splat fruit-flavored desserts rather than the fruits themselves. When the player empties all the fruits on the bar, the fruits on the track change into coins. This is the most important goal for this race, not what place you finish in. The pigs will also splat fruits so it is important to stay ahead of the pigs regardless.
  • Boss Battle (ABGO Versus.png) - A duel with a new racer on a track. Boss Battle typically appears as the 5th/Last Track in a level, and one of the rewards is being able to use that boss in your racing team.
  • Daily Races - Unlock at Rank 3. Daily Races is where you can earn stars from competing in one of three races. If you meet the objective of the race you get awarded stars multiplied by the difficulty selected (Easy (x1), Medium (x2), and Hard (x3)), and sometimes if on Wi-Fi/cell data you can watch a video for a few more. Otherwise, you get nothing for a failed run. When you get the required number of stars listed you can earn prizes such as tickets or coins. You can select any difficulty prior to each race. The races and your star counts reset and change after 24 hours. They also adjust to your selected cart so your high CC kart will face other comparable high CC karts. This is a replacement for "Daily Events" from v1.0.


  • Coins (Bird Coins.png): Coins are the main in-game currency. They appear as small gold coins with Red's face on them. They appear in every track and can be collected to increase the amount of awarded coins when finishing a race, and there are big-sized coins worth Bird Coins.png × 50. They are mainly used to purchase upgrades for the player's karts with upgrade parts, and it's also used for purchase 3 upgrade parts at the shop (starting at Bird Coins.png × 100 for regular parts, Bird Coins.png × 1,000 for Rare parts, and Bird Coins.png × 10,000 for Epic parts).
  • Gems (Gem.png): Gems are the premium in-game currency. They appear as small, hexagonal, shiny blue gems. Gems are used to purchase refill energies, to upgrade karts when you don't have enough coins, and to open premium toolboxes (Gem.png × 40 for open 1 prize and Gem.png × 400 to open 11 prizes). A handful of gems are given out with some toolboxes, otherwise, you will have to perform an in-app purchase. Version 1.0 players will get gems for their purchased karts after updating their game and logging on to their Rovio account.
  • Energy (ABGO Energy.png): Energy replaces the cupcake scheme from v1.0. They are used to enter races and can be replenished by waiting, watching video ads, or spending gems (or probably rank up). When your energy is below what is needed for a race, a special video advertisement option is offered where the player can wait four hours to get full energy plus ABGO Energy.png × 20 on top of it.
  • Tickets (ABGO Ticket.png): Tickets, which are introduced in v2.0, are used to purchase toolboxes. They are awarded from meeting the goals of certain daily challenge races, ranking in tournaments, or getting stars in some of the episode event races. You can also get a ticket from watching the video ad at the redemption part of the shop but must wait four hours before you can watch another one.
  • Upgrade Parts: Upgrade parts are the new item to introduce in v2.0 where you upgrade your kart with Bird Coins.png × 500 for each of them (or gems if you don't enough coins). They appear like a medal with a wrench symbol on them. There are 3 upgrade parts are regular part (ABGO UpgradePart.png), Rare (ABGO RareUpgradePart.png), and Epic (ABGO EpicUpgradePart.png). They can be found in campaign, toolboxes, or at the shop for buying them (Bird Coins.png × 100 for regular parts, Bird Coins.png × 1,000 for Rare parts, and Bird Coins.png × 10,000 for Epic parts, with an incremental cost for each subsequent part until the shop refreshes its inventory). Another upgrade part, Blueprints (ABGO BluePrintV2.png), allows you to level up your kart. Blueprints are found from winning certain campaigns or sometimes in toolboxes.
  • Toolboxes: Toolboxes are the new item to introduced in v2.0. They appear as a toolbox and are opened by tickets. When you attain certain ranks, the game offers a better toolbox that contains rarer prizes (images below). They only found at the shop, you can open the toolbox for Gem.png × 40 for open 1 prize and Gem.png × 400 to open 11 prizes.


In the v2.0 update, you'll get only one power-up by after watching the advertisement videos.

  • King Sling (ABGKingSling.png): When this Power-Up is activated, the slingshot will become a large, gray, more advanced version of the normal slingshot. When the player takes off from the King Sling, they will be propelled very far, very similar to a headstart. This is the only returning Power-Up in this game, for the King Sling also appears as a Power-Up in Angry Birds.
  • Kart Repair (ABGO KartRepair.png): Prior to the 2015 update (v1.6.2), when this Power-Up is activated, the player's kart will automatically be repaired whenever their kart is damaged.
  • Leaf Blower (LeafBlower.png): This Power-Up replaced the Boost Power-Up during the July 2014 update (v1.4.0). When this Power-Up is activated, a metal fan will appear on the player's kart, which spouts out leaves as it moves. This fan allows the player's kart to accelerate much faster, as well as increasing its speed.
  • Turbo Kart (TurboKart.png): This Power-Up replaced the Target Kart Power-Up during the 2015 update (v1.6.0). When this Power-Up is activated, the player is given a kart that looks like Kyle Larson's NASCAR. This kart has lightning bolts on the front and the word "Turbo" on the back. This kart has a high top speed and accelerates very fast, however, much like with every other Power-Up, it can only be used in that particular race and will not appear as an available kart to drive in the game.



Playable characters

Each character has special powers, giving them additional opportunities in the races. In Boss Battle, each of the characters (except Red, due to him being the default character) has different abilities next to their regular powers. In v1.0, they can use it repeatedly, but in v2.0, they only use it once.

Hal (Coca Cola Video).png


ABGO HalSpecialPower.png Creates a tornado, sending it forward in a direct line before his kart. Opponent racers who are hit by the tornado spin out.

In v2.0, playable after getting one star on Campaign Level 10 Race 5.



ABGO ChuckSpecialPower.png Uses a mega speed boost. While doing so, time completely stops temporarily, thus giving the player more reaction time on the track. It appears that when racing against Chuck, when he uses his special ability, he will lose a large amount of speed for a portion of around 30 seconds, making it very easy to win a race. In Boss Battle, he leaves the wheel boosts behind.

In v2.0, playable after getting one star on Campaign Level 11 Race 5.


Ayrton Senna

The game has received mixed reviews, with a Metacritic score of 60% based on 22 reviews. The Guardian liked the gameplay and was not overly bothered by the in-app purchases. Tech2 did not like the energy system, which only allows you to play five races with a bird, after which they are locked unless you wait or unlock with crystals (which are slowly earned in-game or with an in-app purchase) and did not like the vehicle upgrade progress using in-game currency that is slowly earned by racing or with an in-app purchase for coins.
