We had expected the latest installment in the Angry Birds series of Windows Phone games, Angry Birds Go!, to land in the Store on December 11, 2013. However, many awoke this morning to find the title already listed in the Store as a non-Xbox Windows game.
Sadly though, it appears the game isn't completely ready for play.
Angry Birds Go! departs from the traditional style of gaming we have grown accustom to with the gaming series. Instead of hurling your collection of birds through the air to defeat the pigs, Angry Birds Go! is a racing game.
You compete in a series of downhill races with go-karts that are upgradeable and driven by your favorite Angry Birds characters. We’d love to comment further but while we were able to install the game to our Windows Phone, upon launching we consistently received an “unable to connect to the internet” error.
This could be a case that the game was made available in the Store before the online servers at Rovio were switched on, a bug in the game itself or AT&T playing a cruel joke on me.
If you feel like seeing if Angry Birds Go! will cooperate on your Windows Phone, it is a free app for Windows Phone 8 devices. There were some tips stating there was a 2GB RAM requirement and while the game is listed as “unavailable” for the Nokia Lumia 520, I was able to install it on HTC 8x (but still received the connection error).
You can find Angry Birds Go! here in the Windows Phone Store. If you have any luck getting the game to run, let us know in the comments and we'll keep you posted should we here anything new on the game's playability.
Thanks, everyone, for the tips!
