At this point if you haven’t heard of Angry Birds, first of all, shame on you and secondly, stop reading this post and go download the free game ASAP. You’ll thank me later. For the rest of us that have been addicted to this game since its launch several months ago, we have not one, but two pieces of good news that are sure to make you squeal for joy. Or, at the very least, be a tiny bit happier than you were 5 minutes ago.
Angry Birds Application Updated to 1.4.2
Today, Rovio has released an update to the Angry Birds application that brings 45 new levels as well as various bugfixes including QVGA support and support for more Android devices. Yes, yes, you heard me right, you now have 45 more levels to play with, bringing the count up to 195 total levels.
UPDATE: As readers have pointed out, the one frustration of the Angry Birds update is the change in placements of advertisements that are decidedly more in your face than the previous version. UGH!
Android to get Christmas Version of Angry Birds
In other news, Rovio has announced in the last week that it will be bringing a Christmas version of Angry Birds to the Android Community in time for the holidays. No word yet on whether this will be a themed version of the standard game or a new creation, but either way a Christmas version of Angry Birds will be decidedly awesome.
So what are you waiting for? Head on over to the Android Market and update your Angry Birds application to 1.4.2, and enjoy the 45 new levels. Look for the Christmas Angry Birds version to hit the market in coming weeks as the holiday season approaches.
