This year saw the release of several brand new games, including the highly-awaited Angry Birds Go! which had everybody itching for the explosive brand new Angry Birds game. And, the second Angry Birds game, Rovia, got off to a roaring start last summer, bringing back the magic of the classic karting action with cute little cartoon penguins as the playable racers.
But it was not until recently that Rovio finally revealed that there are no further in-app purchases for Angry Birds Go! This means that, in addition to a great deal of content, there will be no more purchases to make while playing Angry Birds. It was also revealed that the free-to-play feature will continue, with new levels, songs, and power ups becoming available each day. The news makes me excited for the future of mobile gaming, as many companies have been trying to find innovative ways to bring more monetization into their mobile titles. I am especially excited for the upcoming holiday season, as I am sure that we will once again see exciting new apps from Rovio, as well as big name franchises like Zynga and Nintendo.
