Rovio Entertainment today launched Angry Birds Go!, the free-to-play kart racer spinoff of the popular downloadable strategy series. The game is available today for iOS, Windows Phone 8, and Blackberry 10 devices. The Android version is not available at press time.

Like other free-to-play games, Angry Birds Go! is supported by various microtransactions. According to its iTunes product page, users can spend $2.60-$65 of real-world money to buy additional items.

The game was "built from the ground up" as a free-to-play title and features upgradable karts, numerous characters, and special powers in a "fully rendered" 3D world. Gamers can play as the birds or the pigs throughout various game modes like Time Boom and Fruit Splat.

Angry Birds Go! also features connectivity with Hasbro's Telepods, a line of physical toys that can be "teleported" into the game.
