Rovio, the esteemed development studio behind hit mobile game Angry Birds, and other titles like The Croods and Bad Piggies, has announced Rovio accounts. It’s a service that will allow you to save your progress for use across different devices and platforms. Folks often upgrade to newer phones or get tablets and have to start all over, but this solves that problem the best way Rovio can at the time being.
For now, the feature is only available in the Croods on a global basis, and on the classic version of Angry Birds on iOS in Finland and Poland. We should see it rolled out to more games, platforms and countries in the near future. Perhaps that new Game Center-esque feature Google’s rumored to be bringing will help solve the problem of device migration for all developers, but for now Rovio is the only one to have taken that major step (outside of MMOs, of course). Give it a shot if you can.
