One of the most exciting product previews at CES wasn’t a tablet, phone or tweeting fridge. It’s an old-fashioned toy — based on the year’s hottest mobile phone game.
Mattel’s plastic-and-metal game “Angry Birds: Knock on Wood,” will hit retail shelves around the world in May. The most detailed look at the game comes from Electric Pig, which captured the cranky yellow birds, smirking pigs and lethal black bombbirds in all their three-dimensional (real 3D! Not TV 3D!) glory.
Contestants fling birds with a slingshot at green pigs who have stolen the birds’ eggs (that’s why they’re angry).
