Rovio Entertainment is a Finnish video game company founded by Niklas Hed, Jarno Väkeväinen, and Kim Dikert at November 10, 2003. While their games are decent, they milk Angry Birds a lot. Their headquarters are located in Espoo, Finland.

Beginning after the first Angry Birds Movie was released and they continued to milk more of their Angry Birds franchise.

Why They and Their Games Suck Now

Note: Most (or all) of the flaws are after the Angry Birds Movie was released.

  1. They are notorious for milking Angry Birds non-stop during the production of The Angry Birds Movie 2, to the point where some of the fans wish for Rovio to make a new franchise if it meant that Angry Birds can finally rest in peace.
  2. They mainly focus on the main flock at the pre-film games by removing Stella’s flock’s playable status in Angry Birds Pop!, and only letting them appear as background characters.
  3. They wanted to add more functions in Angry Birds Go! at the 2.0 era by adding blueprints, parts, and different types of karts to unlock different characters, which didn't get the critical acclaim they expected. It just sucked. Even people on Change.org are trying to make it happen!
  4. Unoriginal ideas at the Angry Birds games. Angry Birds Match? A redo of Nibblers, another one of Rovio’s games. Angry Birds Blast? A rip-off of Toy Blast and Toon Blast.
  5. The post-film games never allow Hal, Bubbles, or any members of Stella’s flock to be playable at all in the games that were officially released.
  6. Their shows are boring at times, and 4 of them (including the new series Angry Birds Maker Space) have Red, Chuck, Bomb as the main protagonists just like the post-film games, with Matilda, Jim, Jake and Jay relegated to background characters,
  7. They also rush their games to the point where they have little content to offer. For instance, their new game Angry Birds Explore didn't have as much content as they advertised.
  8. The game Angry Birds Evolution seems like an attempt at cashing in to games like Marvel: Future Fight, Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, and many other games like it.
  9. In fact, they milked Angry Birds to the point where it's literally a dead franchise.
  10. In mid-2019, they removed most of the old Angry Birds games, consisting of the original, Seasons, and Rio. To make matters worse, most of those games were critically acclaimed by fans. The worst part is that Rovio's "excuse" for removing these games were for "testing purposes".
    • What's even worse is that because of their habit of removing many of their good games, they've also removed their non-angry bird IPs such as Amazing Alex, Tiny Thief, Retry, Sky Punks, and many more. Not only does this reveal their greedy practices, but it just tells the fans that Rovio, like Sega, has chosen to use their most popular IP as their cash cow.
    • They did not even reinstate any of the games after the "testing" (some of their "testing" even prolonged), (except for Bad Piggies) despite the fans clamouring them to do so.
    • After this, their statement on their website is simply that they do not want to keep updating their games to work on modern mobile devices what are you talking about there are games that haven't been updated in over 5 years that still work fine on new Android machines!
  11. Rovio has begun doing Playrix’s practices like false advertising.
  12. Since around 2016, Rovio has replaced the title themes for their Angry Birds games with inferior remixes with no way to switch back to the original themes without modding the game.

They should just rename themselves Angry Birds Entertainment, because that's basically the only game series they still make games for.

For anyone who wants to play the closed games, use aptoide. Aptoide is like 100% free google play store. But only do it for the closed games, remember that piracy is illegal and wrong.

Good news, recently in the iOS App Store they’ve cooled down their powerhouse franchise. Bad news... they’re probably going to be awful.

Angry Birds was one of the biggest parts of my childhood (along with Skylanders) and it’s really disappointing that Rovio thinks it is acceptable to milk a franchise to death simply because it’s popular.

If i'm a CEO of Rovio to not milk Angry Birds franchise here's some examples: Bring back all of the oldest games and make them free again for the fans and announcing it for excitement without any pranks. Asking the animators to create a cameo appearance of the Angry Birds characters in "Toons" style. continue planning on a "third film." Showing a animated announcement to the games at any convention center to surprise the fans.

And of course... bringing back Amazing Alex, because why not?
