The Flash-based Angry Birds is built using the Starling framework, an ActionScript 3 2D framework developed on top of GPU hardware-accelerated 2D/3D APIs.
“We loved developing with Flash and Adobe because of the consistent and rich user experience it provides. […] We have an amazing brand in Angry Birds and we want to deliver an incredible experience to our fans. With Flash Player 11, we are able to deliver new and unique experiences that consumers haven’t seen before”, said Andrew Stalbow, Rovio’s general manager of North America.
We can recall last month that Adobe announced it will bring the possibilities of playing Flash contents to Apple devices through the new versions of its Adobe Flash Media Server and Adobe Flash Access. So by tapping Rovio Mobile to create a Flash version of Angry Birds is just a beginning of the reborn of Adobe’s Flash technology.
Andrew Stalbow added the new Flash version of Angry Birds is due in the next few months, and while you’re waiting – you may hit the preview of the game after the break. [via]
