Angry Birds Go!
Mario Kart-style Angry Birds.
On December 11, Angry Birds Go! will be available in app stores worldwide. It’s a complete first for the Angry Birds series, featuring high-octane downhill racing, upgradable karts, tons of characters with unique special powers and a fully rendered 3D world.
There really is too much to list, so take a look at the gameplay trailer below for a better idea of what Angry Birds Go! will have to offer.

As expected, it's full of in-app purchases!!!!!
Angry Birds Go Will Be Stuffed With In-App Purchases, Some As High As $100 - Gamers Cry Fowl « Android Police
The game apparently includes just about every kind of IAP scheme you can think of. It's got the dual-currency system for upgrades and kart purchases: coins and gems, the latter of which you can buy with real money. It's got a time-based wait system, most frustratingly demonstrated with EA's Real Racing 3: your bird gets tired after five races, after which you'll have to either tag in another bird, pay Gems to "re-energize" it, or wait until it's ready to go again. And if that wasn't enough, Angry Birds Go uses the Hasbro Telepod system for zapping in unlockable characters and bonuses with toys from your local retailer, in the same vein as Skylanders and Disney Infinity. This was previously seen in Angry Birds Star Wars II.
It might seem obvious from the fact that Rovio has turned Angry Birds into a world-striding colossus of a mobile franchise, but they really don't seem to care any more. Angry Birds Go shows all the symptoms of a game and a developer that are interested in wringing as much real cash out of gamers as possible. The in-app purchases for Gems have the usual markups, and gamers can purchase upgraded karts directly - the most expensive and presumably fastest is a full £69.99
. This kind of extravagance isn't unusual from developers who wouldn't know restraint if it smacked them with a two-by-four, but it's disheartening to see it from a developer that was previously so reasonable.
