If you’ve wanted Rovio to do something different, you’ve probably been waiting with bated breath for Angry Birds Epic to roll out. Well, today is your lucky day as Rovio has finally delivered for Android an iOS devices.angry.birds.epic-2

Angry Birds Epic is Rovio’s take on the RPG genre, but with fowl flavoring as the birds and pigs you know and love with be front & center. Epic is a turn-based RPG that pits the birds against the pigs on Piggy Island. You’ll recognize the mechanics instantly when you hit the first stage as somehow Rovio has managed to bring that familiar drag-based action into an RPG. It works surprisingly well.

While I haven’t been able to spend much time with Angry Birds Epic, I definitely like what I’ve seen so far. The battles are quick, the characters are cool, and it’s been a nice change of pace from the physics-flingers they’ve put out in the past. Angry Birds Epic is well worth a download, and you can pick it up for free on the App Store or Google Play.
