This article is about the remaster & re-release of the 2009 game. For the original 2009 release, see Angry Birds (game).

"The classic returns!"
Trailer

Rovio Classics: Angry Birds (also known as "Project Classic22" in development)[note 1] is a remake of the original Angry Birds. It released on March 31st, 2022.[1][5] It is recreated on the Unity engine and is a premium paid game for $0.99.[6]

Changes from the original version

General

Gameplay

  • It has been said that there's an easier method to put birds back in the slingshot. This means that instead of trying to put again the bird into the slingshot, the player has to tap the screen while holding onto the slingshot.
  • The player is now be able to zoom in or out of a level without accidentally pulling back the slingshot.[1]
  • You can no longer drop an egg onto other birds, as it will go right through them.

Aesthetic

  • More of the game's text became localizable, which will allow the game to be presented in more languages.[1]
  • The sprites for the birds and pigs have been reverted to the original sprites from before 4.1.0 and in Angry Birds Seasons, also known as the pre-Chrome sprites.[3][4][7]
  • The logo is reverted to the 2010 logo, instead of the new logo seen in Angry Birds 2 and onwards.[3]
  • Matilda erroneously seems to use her sketch-like design instead of her old finalized design.[4][7]
  • The pause button's rectangles are closer together than before.[4][7]
  • Bomb had a white dot on his head until it was removed.[9]

Non-playable characters

Mighty Eagle.png Mighty Eagle After pressing the eye icon next to the pause button, the birds are replaced with a can of sardines. When the can is launched, it will summon Mighty Eagle shortly after coming into contact with something. Mighty Eagle will then demolish anything in his path before flying back up, while also popping any remaining pigs in the level. Notably, Mighty Eagle is now free in this version of the game, instead of requiring a $4.99 (formerly $0.99) in-app purchase and has a cooldown of 1 hour.

History

On June 22, 2021, the Rovio posted a blog on their website and a tweet announcing that they would be remaking some highly desired delisted Angry Birds games, such as Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons, as a response to the infamous "#BringBack2012" movement in the Angry Birds community in which fans wanted to see a "return to form" for the series and for the delisted older games to be put back up on app stores. Not many details were made clear about the project, and what games would get remade would remain unclear until on November 23, when Rovio posted their first "Dev Diary" explaining that the company will remake the original Angry Birds in the first quarter of 2022, and opened a Q&A on Twitter, allowing fans to ask questions about the project with the #BringBack2012 hashtag.[1]

A month later on December 22, they posted another Dev Diary answering some of the questions fans sent on Twitter. Some of the questions that were answered revolved around the rerelease being a separate application, progress not being transferrable, character designs, what content will be in the game and possible future merchandise based on the classic designs (like what was seen during 2019 with the Angry Birds Toy Factory plush toys).[3]

The third Dev Diary would release on January 26, 2022, revealing two screenshots of the remake, comparing them to the original version of the game.[4] The fourth Dev Diary, released on March 2, 2022, retells the story of how Danger Above 8-3 was initially proposed by a fan named Ethan, and confirmed that Mighty Eagle would reappear in the remake.[7]

On March 14th, 2022, Rovio employees started publicly releasing information about that game and through the Rovio Gaming Discord server. One of the roles in the server was titled "Rovio Classics: Angry Birds"

Trivia

  • Despite it being an enhanced remake released almost 3 years after the original game's last update, it features significantly less content due to it being based on the mid-2012 version of Angry Birds[3] (referring to v2.1.0), which has been met with a very mixed reception from fans. However, Rovio Entertainment Corporation have not ruled out adding any of these in the future, since future game updates are possible.[3]
    • However Birdday Party has the cake-3 levels even though they were added at the end of 2012.
  • In the screenshots found in the third Dev Diary, the trails behind the birds are transparent like in Angry Birds Reloaded. This seems to have been fixed as of the fourth Dev Diary.

The Sardines from the Dev Diaries

  • The GIF shown in the fourth Dev Diary which announced Mighty Eagle mistakenly had the fish on the sardines can as grey. This seems to just be an error with the GIF and the fish is pink, as it should be, in the game.
  • While the remake uses the original sprites, the second Dev Diary mentions that the sprites would resemble the sprites that were used in Angry Birds before its removal, implying that the sprites from Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Chrome and onward would be used. Even more confusing is how right afterward, the Dev Diary claims that the sprites would be "very similar to the style used in Angry Birds Reloaded", which is certainly not the case.
  • The game's logo is a callback to the logo used by Rovio Stars (the publishing division behind Tiny Thief and Plunder Pirates).
  • Starting on March 23rd 2022, the Angry Birds Facebook and Instagram changed their PFP’s to the classic 2012 app icon and the official Twitter to a classic-style Red on a TNT crate.
  • For the game's official cinematic trailer, many Angry Birds fans from Twitter are featured on Red's "Tweeter" feed.[12]
    • These fans are:
    • @SmileyFaceAB
    • @angry_facts
    • @BJBlueShadow
    • @AngeryShed
    • @Tuli87510033
    • @CallmeCarsonYT (Not apart of AB Twitter community but is there for some reason)
    • @Real_TSwany
    • @ABtoonsOOC
    • @AB__Network
    • @AngryBirdMask
  • The Super Bowl Golden Egg is surprisingly still in this version despite the license for Angry Birds Rio expiring due to The Walt Disney Company's purchase of Blue Sky Studios.
    • The link to the trailer was removed though on the "Level Cleared!" screen.
  • Sound effects from this game are reused for the plush toys and Angry Birds Mega Fling board game.
  • When released, the game was topping charts in many countries and is mostly in the top 5 of paid games on the Play Stores and top 3 of paid apps on the Apple App Store.[13]

Glitches

Main article: Rovio Classics: Angry Birds/Glitches

This game is known for having slight gameplay differences from the original version. Thus, glitches can occur:

  • Golden Egg 1 does not work as intended. The Blue Bird that is supposed to hit the wooden triangle shoots towards the beach ball instead. The level is still passable, however.
  • Certain audio distorts when the player moves the camera, mainly when something is moved offscreen. When the camera pans to the left, the sound one is making pitches up. When it moves to the right, it pitches down.
  • Many wrong sprites can be seen:
    • The first and third empty stars swap places, thus making it look inward.
    • Chuck and Bomb sometimes make their flying expressions when waiting in line.
    • Matilda uses her corpse sprite on the tutorial and title screen.
    • Bomb's tutorial shows his fuse to be blue, making him resemble his Shockwave counterpart, who is not in this game. Now, in version 1.1 of the game, this has been fixed into his original design.
    • Some of the pigs sometimes smile in the level starts.

Sound Effects

These sound effects were previously unused in the original version of the game.
