The next chapter in the Angry Birds franchise is a prequel.

Rovio Entertainment globally launches Angry Birds Dream Blast, a casual tap-to-match puzzle game in which players join the young and sleepy Angry Birds flock to blast Dream Bubbles and overcome a number of different bubble popping challenges. Dream Blast introduces an all-new gameplay style for the franchise, set in the era before the Angry Birds’ first run-in with their piggy nemeses.

A unique aspect of the game is how quickly players can get into the action.

Time-to-fun is incredibly important to us,” says head of Rovio’s Puzzle Studio, Heini Kaihu. “We want players to be having fun in our games within seconds of opening them. This is something I feel the team has done a great job implementing in Angry Birds Dream Blast. We’re extremely excited for players around the world to pick up the game and start popping Dream Bubbles right away.”

Angry Birds Dream Blast is free to download worldwide via the App Store and Google Play.
