+ VIDEO: Introducing NFC Enabled Angry Birds Magic

19 April 2011

NFC Enabled Angry Birds Magic Game
To Be Exclusively Available For Nokia C7

Angry BirdsRovio Mobile, developer of supremely addicting Angry Birds game announced today at WIMA that their programmers working on a new NFC enabled version of its Angry Birds franchise that will be exclusively available for Nokia C7.

Angry Birds Free with Magic will come preinstalled on the Nokia C7 as part of the Symbian Anna update. It will also be included on all of Nokia’s NFC-enabled devices in 2011.

Meanwhile, the Rovio programmers are hard at work creating a full version of Magic – to be made available through Ovi Store – that will have more levels and more ways to harness the power of NFC.

Angry Birds Free with Magic contains twenty levels of the traditional pig-pelting action. But you can’t do it all on your own.

Five of the levels are as normal. But at that point you need to find a friend with an NFC-enabled phone, as the remaining levels are inter-spliced with ones that can only be unlocked when you touch phones with someone else. Finding one friend will unlock five more levels. A second friend will unlock another five, and a third the remaining five.

There’s also a second way to unlock levels: through using NFC tags – which might be embedded in any item or object. We understand clues as to their locations will be forthcoming…

“With Angry Birds Magic, friends can group together to combat the pig menace, in a new take on the game that so many people all over the world have fallen love with,” said Mikael Hed from Rovio.

“This is an exclusive offering with the Nokia C7, a smartphone that really kicks off the NFC experience for developers. In time, the communal power of users with Angry Birds Magic could prove even stronger than the Mighty Eagle.”

Meanwhile, the Rovio programmers are hard at work creating a full version of Magic – to be made available through Ovi Store – that will have more levels and more ways to harness the power of NFC.

Nokia’s Bryan Biniak, head of Ovi Publish, told us: “Angry Birds Magic is a great demonstration of NFC technology and we’re delighted to have it exclusive to Nokia. It represents an exciting opportunity for developers to create new, innovative apps and games.”
