The ever popular puzzle game Angry Birds just got updated to version 1.51, and it seems to be a pretty major new release from the folks at Rovio Mobile in snowy Finland, Scandinavia.
The update includes no less than 30 new levels, and a Wild West themed episode called Ham ‘Em High. There’s some obvious wordplay going on there, and the name of the episode alludes to the 1968 Clint Eastwood western Hang ‘Em High, with a bit of pork thrown in. The latest release from Rovio also includes a graphics toggle for lower-end devices.
Like Andrew reported earlier, there will be a special ad for the Rio movie during Super Bowl on Sunday. The commercial will contain a hidden clue that will unlock a special level in Angry Birds.
We’ll soon see even more of the infuriated poultry, since Rovio and 20th Century Fox have joined forces to create a new game called Angry Birds Rio. You can check out the trailer for the Rio game below.
