Angry Birds Go brings kart racing fun to your Android device for free starting today

Rovio has released a new game in the Angry Birds universe that is quite unlike anything they’ve done before — a kart racing game! Dubbed Angry Birds Go, this game will pit you against other birds and those dastardly egg-stealing pigs. You take the track to race to the finish line, using every devious tool at your disposal to gain the advantage you need to claim that #1 crown.

This release marks the first ever Angry Birds game to be set in a 3D universe, giving us a look at these two warring factions like we’ve never seen them. You’ll get to race with┬áRed, Chuck, Terence, Stella, King Pig, Moustache Pig and more in 5 different game modes, upgrade your ride, and use Telepod figurines to “teleport” characters into your game.

Oh, and all of this is free, so don’t hesitate to give it a download (but if this hefty 168MB download is too much for your data connection you might want to wait until you’re on WiFi). Find it sitting in the Google Play Store, and don’t forget to take a look at the launch trailer above.

    Please add “with in-app purchases out the ass” after free in the title of this article.

      in app purchases are starting to get ridiculous. some games have you pay over $80 to get all the characters. Next Gen console games do not even cost that much.

        Look up little empire. I know people that have spent $1500 on that game. no joke!

      • Jason Farrell

        Indeed. Wish there was a better way to indicate in Play Store listings just how Ass Rapey each game’s IAP scheme is.

    “This release marks the first ever Angry Birds game to bet set in a 3D universe…”

    Probably should change to “Angry Birds game to *get* set…”

    • Tbone

      I think it’s supposed to say “be set.”

      • Quentyn Kennemer

        Yep, was supposed to say “be.” Thanks for spotting the error Calvin!

    Not compatible with the 2012 Nexus 7? WTF?

    • No_Nickname90

      From what it seems like, it’s not compatible with tablet devices period.

  • SocalTeknique

    Freemium + Ads = no thank you

    • No_Nickname90

      It has ads!? Oh my… Well… let me download it. Maybe it’s the good freemium.

  • Dagmar Schneitz

    Cute cartoon! I was afraid this was going to be like Mario Cart, but this was a lot darker. I like it!

  • guitarist5122

    After all the negative reviews, I think I’ll wait for Rovio to change the freemium structure. My son loves angry birds. You would think with all the merch that him and other kids have, Rovio wouldn’t have to be so greedy with the IAP of this game. I think Rovio might just be testing the waters to see how greedy they can be and I expect less IAP down the road.

  • No_Nickname90

    Some of the reviews are saying there is an energy feature. Like WTF!? An energy feature!? Dafuq!? You’re racing in some go-karts. =.=

    Well… It’s downloading now. I guess I’ll play it as a time passer and not something I’d stay on for hours on end.

  • Dougau

    Not compatible with Nexus 7?

  • Modman

    side load it from you Phone if You’re rooted
    it Works perfectly on Nexus 7.
    Companies that are to lazy to test things test only with Certain devices.
    only way to see it works on non tested devices devices test it yourself.
    in order to that do that You need to Sideload the App.
    It works on Nexus 7 2012 perfectly I sideloaded it there, it also works on lg esteem. But it lags on the esteem phone.

    The most expensive car is $50? Seriously? WTF is that I can go buy a real game and play it on my TV for that. It was fun for the 10 minutes or so until I need to spend money to get a car with at least enough cc. Lame.
