‘Angry Birds’ Receives Yet Another Update, World Goes Wild

Angry Birds, by far the most popular game on the App Store, has received yet another substantial update in its new episode “Mine & Dine”.

With 15 more levels, the expansion pack also allows you to hit the hanging stalactites to pop the pesky animals as well, adding yet another dimension to the already diverse gameplay.

For only $0.99, this is obviously one of the best deals on the App Store, and if you haven’t picked it up yet, there’s really no reason not to.

The update is available for download on the App Store now.

Updates: ‘Angry Birds Seasons’, ‘Real Racing 2’, and More

Weekdays are usually when updates start to trickle out, and I was thoroughly surprised when I checked what updates were available.

For starters, Angry Birds Seasons has been updated with 15 Valentine’s Day levels, new achievements, golden eggs (assumption from the little puzzle in the update list), and 3 secret levels.  And if you haven’t picked up Angry Birds Seasons yet, it’s definitely one that seems to be a nice investment for only $0.99.  This is the second update following the initial Christmas release, and with Easter coming up, I doubt Rovio Mobile is done updating.

As for Angry Birds, it’s been also updated with 15 brand new levels along with a new golden egg, more adventures in the Frontier Badlands, and a hidden clue found in the Angry Birds Rio Super Bowl commercial (now that’s a mouthful).

Real Racing 2 has also released a significant update with six new events, a tweaked Control E layout, multiplayer improvements including a change in rankings and multiplayer matchups, and other minor fixes and improvements.  And if you haven’t bought this racing game yet, it’s on sale for $4.99 until February 14th; I suggest you go on down and purchase before the sale ends.

And last but not least, Dungeon Defenders has been updated to include a new campaign mode and challenge, Hall of Heroes PvP competitive arena, Tavern Shop system, and in-app purchasing of Bank Mana.

These latest updates improve upon already great games, and if you haven’t picked up any one of them yet—again—I suggest you to do so in the sincerest way possible.

‘Angry Birds’ Coming to Real Life

Angry Birds has probably been one of the most successful iPhone games in the short life of the App Store.

It’s been ported over to consoles, the PSP minis, the Mac App Store, the iPad… the possibilites are endless.  Plus, they’ve got those new plush toys out and about (admittedly, I want to buy some for some odd reason).

And now, Mattel is bringing Angry Birds from the virtual life into reality via board game, which will be announced sometime during CES 2011 (Consumer Electronics Show).

According to Mashable, the game will be played as follows:

Players will draw cards that show either brick structures or pigs — all of which are recreated as plastic figures — that tell the player where to direct a plastic angry bird with a slingshot.

The board game will go on sale for $14.99 some time in May, so be sure to be on the look out for Angry Birds in a store near you.

Angry Birds Day On December 11th, Will You Be Joining?

The cult classic Angry Birds is a lot more popular than I thought.  Fans have designated December 11th as Angry Birds Day, which happens to be on a Saturday.  There are already 109 meetups created, anywhere from Hawaii to Buenos Aires across 36 countries.

185 people have already decided to meet up for this special day, and it’s definitely an interesting premise.  If you decide to go, let us know how it is.

You never know, it could become a national holiday, and you would be able to boast that you were at the first Angry Birds day.

‘Angry Birds’ Releases Halloween-Themed App, Update Adds GameCenter

Angry Birds, the bird-flinging game that took the App Store in full force, has been updated including 15 new levels and Game Center leaderboards and achievements.  Along with that, Rovio Mobile has decided to give some love to iPhone 4 users by updating the graphics to fit the Retina display.

In our review of Angry Birds, we liked it but found the physics to be a little bit off.  Nonetheless, for $0.99, it’s got a bunch of content and a bunch of nifty features to keep you quite busy.

The Angry Birds update should be ready for download in your local App Store.  If you haven’t picked it up yet, I would suggest you to check out our review.

Along with the new update, the new Halloween-themed app is available for $0.99, which includes 45 levels, achievements, and leaderboards.
