Originally released for smart phones[[note]]iOS, Android, Symbian, [=WebOS=], Windows Phone[[/note]], the game is now available for play on tablet computers, e-readers, the Website/{{Google}} Chrome web browser (which was accidentally harder for a while due to physics errors that badly {{nerf}}ed Bomb, but they fixed it recently), as a Playstation Minis app [[note]]playable on the UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable and PS3[[/note]], and on {{Facebook}}. Wii, XBox360, and 3DS have collections released for them on disc/cartridge. As of November 2011, ''Angry Birds'', in all its incarnations, across all platforms, has been downloaded ''[[http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/242027/20111102/angry-birds-downloaded-game-time.htm 500 million]]'' times. The only game with distribution figures that come close to this mark is ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}''[[note]]35mil via UsefulNotes/GameBoy; 100mil via phone. However, this is for copies ''sold'', and only on those two platforms; there are no figures for PC, nor for pirated or shareware versions.[[/note]] It's even been [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fyt792N1e9g parodied]] on an Israeli sketch comedy show, which used the endless conflict between the birds and the pigs as a metaphor for the UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict.

* TheMerch: In many kinds, but especially the line of plush Angry Birds (which range from keychain-size to softball size), which includes the Rio characters, and several have electronic game sounds. And are safe enough to throw at things!

* ''Angry Birds Star Wars'', a sequel / {{Crossover}} with the original ''Franchise/StarWars'' film trilogy. Unlike ''Angry Birds Rio'', which featured the normal birds alongside the cast of ''Rio'', this game utilizes the UniversalAdaptorCast trope, with birds and pigs alike portraying the various characters.

* BinarySuns: Tatooine, of course.
* ExpressiveMask: The pig stormtroopers and Darth Vader.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Fittingly, the stormtrooper pig is a terrible shot.
* RoleReprisal: Played with for fun as [=Ian McDiarmid=], the original actor who played Emperor Palpatine on ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' and the prequels, voices the pig version of Emperor Palpatine.
* UniversalAdaptorCast:
** In the first game: Luke is the red bird. Obi-wan is the black bird. Chewbacca is the big red bird. Both Han and Lando are the yellow bird, colored appropriately. Leia is the pink bird. C-3PO is the white bird. R2-D2 is an egg.
** In the second game: Qui-Gon (an eagle) takes over for Luke as the lightsaber bird. Obi-wan, C-3PO, and R2-D2 are unchanged, Obi-wan's younger appearance aside. The red bird is now Anakin from ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', mimicking the Jewel[=/=]Blu ChainedHeat dynamic with his special ability. Jar Jar gets Leia's "grab stuff from afar" ability, only it's with his tongue. Zam Wesell also has this ability, using a grappling hook. The pink bird is now Padme, whose beams push their targets instead of pulling them. Captain Panaka is the yellow bird (although he's brown) and has Han/Lando's blaster ability. Count Dooku gets the green bird's boomerang ability (and, since he's a pig, is green himself), but it's with his lightsaber instead of himself.
