Believe it or not, Angry Birds has been around for 5 years. I know, it made me feel old too. But cheer up ole’ chap, there are 30 new levels for you to play in the latest update to the original Angry Birds for Windows Phone. The update has been released in celebration of Angry Bird’s 5th “BirdDay” and the all new levels are inspired by fan art. It’s a classy way for the team at Rovio Entertainment to celebrate the day and certainly one of the more unique ways of doing it. The update is version 22.214.171.124 for those keeping score at home and is available now in the Windows Phone Store.
The gameplay in these new levels will be familiar to anyone how has played the game so there won’t be much of a learning curve. The 30 new levels are all part of the new BirdDay episode and with the addition of these 30 new levels, the original Angry Birds now has over 500 levels. In other words, if you have never played this game, get it now and get busy. You have a lot of pig popping
The game is Xbox enabled so you can earn achievements throughout the game and while the game itself is free, there are plenty of in-app purchases to help you along the way. The other nice thing is that all of the levels of the game come unlocked when you install it so you can move around the various levels and episodes freely.
While I still say that Angry Birds Seasons is my personal favorite variety of the franchise, it is still hard to beat the original and with Rovio continuing to add to the game after 5 years is a testament to just how much people love the game.
Happy 5th BirdDay Angry Birds!
