Angry Birds Gets a Spooktacular Halloween Edition

How do you take the world's number one paid application and make it even more freaking awesome? Rovio Mobile has a thought, make the Angry Birds scary! Angry Birds has gone Halloween with a whole new application available in the App store ($0.99 for iPhones and iPod Touches, $1.99 for iPads). The app includes 45 new levels set against backdrops of Halloween-esqe skylines and pumpkins. Each bird is re-introduced (for if you haven't played the original Angry Birds) in the first few levels.

Here's why I am a fan. It's more pig chomping eggs and birds getting mad. This is something the world needs more of anyway. What I would have liked though are zombied pigs and bat-crazy birds to truly get into the Halloween spirit.

The Halloween app is completely seperate from the original Angry Birds app and is available only for Apple devices (even though Angry Birds is also on Android now). Rovio Mobile tweeted that an update to regular Angry Birds will be coming up in a few weeks for iPhones and iPads.
