Today marks a special day in Rovio’s calendar. It’s 3 years since Angry Birds launched on the App Store and took the world by storm. For months upon months it sat at the top of the paid apps chart, and at least one of its titles is normally still in the top 10. It’s been a phenomenal success.
To mark this event, the developers have released an update which includes a new bird, some explosive birthday cake and – finally – iPhone 5 optimized gameplay. That’s not all, there are 30 new levels to play.
“Happy Birdday! Can you believe that Angry Birds is turning three? We sure can’t! Celebrate with 30 NEW LEVELS, birdday cake, and the bubbliest bird ever — Pink Bird! But watch out for the cake — it’s not a lie, but it packs a BIG punch!”
The update is free, so head on over to the App Store and update your existing app. If you don’t already have Angry Birds, the $0.99 and $2.99 fees for the iPhone and iPad “HD” version are fantastic value for money considering the number of levels and episodes now available.
