My son loves to play Angry Birds and I’ve even found it to be a little addicting once you start but don’t tell anyone. I told myself I wasn’t ever going to get Angry Birds, and I did a great job until the grandparents brought it into the house. Then my husband bought Star Wars Angry Birds for his phone and my son assumed that I purchased it for my phone too. Actually, I have a feeling he just thought it was free. I don’t have it. But I will because it’s free, Angry Birds is free on your Windows Phone.
Rovio has confirmed that a new, revamped version of the original Angry Birds will be completely free to download for the next two weeks, until 15 May. It is the full game too, not a cut back version, so you’ll be able to fling tiny feathered friends with special powers into evil round-headed pigs to your heart’s content. And what’s more, an extra 100 all-new levels will be available from the off too.
Free for a limited time only! Download before May 15th to get the full game for free! Use the unique powers of the Angry Birds to destroy the greedy pigs’ defenses! The survival of the Angry Birds is at stake. Dish out revenge on the greedy pigs who stole their eggs. Use the unique powers of each bird to destroy the pigs’ defenses. Angry Birds features challenging, physics based demolition gameplay with hours and hours of replay value. Each of the over 300 levels require logic, skill, and force to solve.
In addition, the Windows Phone 8 version will have Xbox Live integration, featuring leaderboards and achievements.
The new version of the game is a separate release to the first, so will not wipe over your original game saves. Rovio felt it needed to release it this way, instead of as an update because more work was needed on the app’s infrastructure. "The reason why we’re re-releasing the game is that it will be technically easier for us to support in the future, so we’re really happy to get this out there," the company said.
