Lightweight Angry Birds for Lesser Android Phones is under Development

Angry Birds for Android has been making a lot of Android users happy with its addictive and fun gameplay. It raked in 1 million downloads within the first 24 hours, and has been going strong ever since. Unfortunately, Angry Birds doesn’t work perfectly on some Android handsets. Although the game is not as demanding as some of the other games (especially the gameloft ones), it does require a decent processor. As a result, users with an old or a low-end Android handset, might experience performance issues.


The handsets that are not officially supported by Rovio Mobile (developers of Angry Birds) include HTC Hero, HTC Tattoo, HTC Wildfire and Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini among others. Fortunately for users of these phones, Rovio doesn’t intend on ignoring them. They are currently working on a lightweight version of Angry Birds, which will be optimized for devices with less processing power. Rovio has indicated that the light version will have the same number of levels as the original Angry Birds for Android.
