Angry Birds 2 Passes 10 Million Downloads

New download milestone for Rovio's bird-flinging sequel.

113 Comments

Angry Birds 2 is off to a hot start. Developer Rovio has announced that the bird-flinging sequel has passed 10 million downloads since its release for mobile phones and tablets on July 29.

The entire Angry Birds franchise has tallied more than 1 billion downloads since it originally debuted in 2009.

Angry Birds 2 is a free-to-play game, so big download numbers are to be expected. Rovio did not share any information regarding how many of those 10 million players have spent real-world money on it.

In Angry Birds 2, your arsenal of birds takes the form of cards. When you use them up, you lose a life. After this, you can either wait for those lives to refill after using them up, or spend in-game currency to buy a few more chances. Another change for Angry Birds 2 is the environments, which now have a multi-area layout.

Am I the ONLY one, that knows that if you own an Andriod(Apple devices doesnt allow this method to work) devices...I am on level 785, i didnt even pay a dime for Farm Heros app

You dont need to wait for friends, 24 hours period, or even pay to extra lives. Here's how "ANYONE" can do it ...."click" the Settings-->goto/"click" DATE and TIME-->goto/"UN-click" Automatic Date and Time--"click" Set Date-->change the date for the tomorrow's date-->"click" OK.

DO NOT close the Settings app completely.

Open any game app like...Angry Birds, Angry Birds 2, Pet Recuse, Farm Heros, Candy Crush and basically any game app asking for 24 hours to get more lives.

NOW, open a game app(aka Farm HEROS)-->open a level that you are going to play-->click "PLAY", if your lives are gone or even your booster(s) need to be "RECHARGED", then this next step will help reset them ...without you paying for them....

Goto back your Android phone app of Settings--> "click" the Settings-->goto/"click" DATE and TIME-->goto/"click" Automatic Date and Time to reset back to today's date.

Now with the game app opened during this process, the app thinks its tomorrow, so it reset itself and gave you FREE lives and Recharged your boosters.

NOTE: if you play the game app "withOUT" resetting the "Automatic DATE and TIME" back to today's date, then you will have other app issues with dates, such as banking transfers and texting to name a few....if you did not change it then just go back to the "automatic DATE and TIME" and UNClick it, then goto/"click" DATE and TIME, change the date 2 days ahead, then goto and re-open the game app but do not click while on the screen, return back to your Android phone app of Settings--> "click" the Settings-->goto/"click" DATE and TIME-->goto/"click" Automatic Date and Time to reset back to today's date.

@ps3gamer1234: milking the sheep is a much more profitable business for rovio, when i read the title of this article i was thinking look at all the ignorant sheep that are downloading this game mindlessly and feeding the company money, rovio should be ashamed at this point.

i hate the business model of this game enough to not even install it. one-time-fee to unlock a "premium game" would be cool, but this... more you play, more you pay. extremely off-putting.

Wait, you can't retry the level as much as you want anymore, it has timer bs like other mobile crap? I was thinking about playing it to pass the time when I need to but I'll pass now.

@Thanatos2k: Just because they have lives and can't spend hours a day playing games, does not mean they're not gamers. Especially in the eyes of publishers who milk their casual udders for all they've got

@Cruxis27: "Just because they have lives and can't spend hours a day playing games, does not mean they're not gamers."

That's sort of exactly what it means. If you do not care about video games, you aren't a gamer. Playing mobile trash does not a gamer make, just like driving a car does not make me a gearhead.

@Thanatos2k: Um, no. Anyone that enjoys games of any kind and plays them is a gamer. They may not be a "hardcore" gamer, but, some of us work long hours and have families to spend time with. Some weeks I may be able to sink 50 hours into a game, while other weeks I'll be lucky for a half hour.

Mobile games go wherever you go, so naturally, more people play them.

(That being said, the atrocious ftp model needs to go)

No. You have to care about games to be a gamer. Simply playing them is not enough. I repeat, driving a car does not make me a gearhead. I would have to care about cars. Eating food does not make me a foodie.

@Thanatos2k: That would be the difference between a casual and hardcore gamer. They're still gamers. I don't know anyone that plays any type of game that doesn't care about them. (Candy Crush and other ftp games included) Driving a car and eating food are pretty much necessities where playing a game is not.

@slypher9 I have to agree with you. Platform doesn't matter. It's funny how gamers hate Angry Birds and yet they are playing Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed. It's the same case. We play Angry Birds and Red Game Without a Great Name, Her Story and Candy Crush Saga, Dark Souls and FIFA. We should be happy that there are so many different games offering different experiences.

@slypher9: There's a few mobile titles that are actually games. Most are not. And yes, platform absolutely matters. Do you call yourself a board game enthusiast if you only play Tic Tac Toe on the sidewalk?

This is what people want from portable gaming? They want to get f*cked over with Microtransactions? This is why Microtransactions aren't going away, because of stupid people.
