Angry Birds celebrates St. Patrick with free update
If you're an Angry Birds Seasons owner, get ready to go green with 15 new levels' worth of St. Patrick's Day pig-popping. Make it 18 if you "like" the game.
St. Patrick's Day traditions: wearing green-colored clothes, drinking green beer, celebrating the Irish, and, now, flinging birds at pigs. (Kinda fits, don't you think?)
That's right: Rovio just rolled out a St. Patrick's Day-themed update to Angry Birds Seasons, with 15 new levels, two Golden Eggs, a "St. Paddy's Day surprise," and St. Patrick's Day greeting cards you can send to friends via Facebook.
The "Go Green, Get Lucky" levels come alive with cloverleafs, pots of gold, and a delightful Celtic soundtrack. Oh, and pigs in Leprechaun hats. (This may just be the cutest Seasons update yet.)
Angry Birds fans may recall that Seasons received aback in February, and, before that, Christmas- and Halloween-themed levels.
As with the Valentine's Day version, you can unlock three bonus levels just by "liking" the game on Facebook.
Can't get enough Birds? Stay tuned for the game's first movie tie-in:is due from Rovio sometime this month, just ahead of the eponymous movie from 20th Century Fox. Personally, I'd rather see something like Angry Birds: Despicable Me Edition, but I guess birders can't be choosers.
Thank you, thank you, I'm here all week.
