The release comes as Rovio battles the perception that the firm is a one-hit wonder, solely reliant on Angry Birds. However, the company's last non-avian title, Amazing Alex has so far failed to wow critics and fans.
Since launching in 2009, Angry Birds has been downloaded more than 1 billion times, producing about $122.1 million in revenues for the company in 2011, about a third of which came from licensing and merchandising.
