Problems getting Angry Birds to work on cheaper Android phones with smaller, lower resolution screens could delay this week’s update, a post on Rovio’s Twitter feed suggests.
New Angry Birds levels and challenges were expected to land on Android phones this week, including the Mighty Eagle smartbomb feature that’s currently exclusive to the Symbian3-powered Nokia N8 and C7. The update is also due to bring the game to cheaper Android phones such as the HTC Wildfire for the first time ever.
However, it’s now looking like next week might be more realistic for the update, after the games maker admitted via its Twitter feed that ensuring compatibility with lower-end Android blowers is causing it some problems.
Rovio tweeted: “[The Android update is] still delayed, some issues with QVGA support. Working hard to get it out asap.”
The update, which we expect will be a special Christmas edition of the game with themed content, is expected to arrive simultaneously on the iPhone and Nokia platforms too.
