Angry Birds, the phenomenally successful mobile game, which has been downloaded over 4.5 billion times across the world, is flying onto AppGallery to bring its unique brand of pig-popping slingshot gameplay to Huawei’s expanding global audience.
While Angry Birds 2 is the first Rovio game to be listed on AppGallery, the Angry Birds movie is already available on HUAWEI Video¹, the company’s platform for video content. On top of that, Huawei users will soon also be able to customise their phones using HUAWEI Themes to display dedicated Angry Birds 2 themes, while customers with Huawei smartwatches and bands will be able to download Angry Birds 2 watch faces.
Huawei is supporting the launch of the game with unique ways of helping users experience and interact with the Angry Birds brand outside of the app store, making it easier to get in the spirit of the game across multiple channels and devices. In addition, players in Europe will be able to claim 50% cashback on the first in-game transaction, and 20% on other transactions between 1st and 14th July.
“We are very excited that Angry Birds 2 will now be available to millions more gamers around the world through our partnership with AppGallery. Rovio’s mission is to create joy, and we are always happy when our games and the joy we create reach new audiences. I hope lots of new players get into some serious pig popping fun with our Angry Birds and their porky enemies, using all the fantastic gameplay options that we are putting at their disposal.”
Miikka Lindgren – VP of Business Development, Rovio
As one of the world’s fastest-growing app marketplaces, AppGallery strives to partner with leading brands and gaming developers, like Rovio, whose titles attract the biggest global audiences. This is allowing the platform to list a constant stream of exciting, challenging and entertaining content, connecting users with the games they most want to play and developers with a new and previously untapped customer base.
The gaming category is at the forefront of apps expansion on AppGallery with over 500% more games now available on the platform compared to a year ago. The company has also created a separate tab dedicated to gaming on AppGallery’s home page, which was launched along with the new-look app store design earlier this year. The feature allows users to easily find games and content specific to their interests quickly and easily.
