'Angry Birds' Birthday Update Brings 15 New Levels!

Those feisty Angry Birds and rotten Green Pigs turned two over the weekend and to celebrate Rovio and Chillingo have released a special “Birthday 2.0.0” update for the original Angry Birds game. The update, which brings us new levels and maybe a few birthday cakes is available from the App Store right now.

“Chillingo is proud of its partnership with Rovio and how we leveraged our publishing expertise to help grow Angry Birds from its humble beginnings to the successful franchise it is today,” said Joe Wee, co-founder and co-general manager at Chillingo.

"After two years, Angry Birds continues to delight fans and remain a steady fixture on the App Store’s top ten charts .This is quite a testament to the success indie developers can achieve with the right title, publishing partner and promotional support," added Chris Byatte, co-founder and co-general manager at Chillingo.

The update brings us 15 new cake-filled levels and unlocks all of the game's current levels so we scroll through and play whichever we want. In addition to that, a new Orange Bird has been introduced that apparently propels any object it touches by inflating.

Other changes the update brings are new menus and graphics. Nothing here to write home about but it's a nice refresh with a new opening screen and new menu at the end of each level. Rovio and Chillingo have also given us some neat Birthday-themed achievements to collect.
