Angry Birds gets a free Easter update

If you're an Angry Birds Seasons owner, get your bunny on with with 15 new levels' worth of Easter-themed pig-popping. Make it 18 if you "like" the game.

There's a major holiday approaching, and that can mean only one thing: a new Angry Birds Seasons update! Sure enough, version 1.4.0 just roosted in the App Store, bringing with it 15 new levels for everybody's favorite chocolate-infused holiday (besides Halloween): Easter.

As Angry fans know, this is becoming a regular happening. After Angry Birds Halloween made its debut last year, developer Rovio followed up with free Christmas-themed levels--and changed the app's name to Seasons.

In February, things turned romantic with new Angry Birds levels for Valentine's Day . In March, the Birds celebrated St. Patrick's Day with more new levels. And, here we are, just a month later, with pigs wearing bunny ears.

As with all previous updates, this one's free. If you're new to Angry Birds, the 99-cent app comes with all five holidays' worth of levels--around 115 in all, by my count.

And that's before "liking" the game on Facebook (by tapping an in-game button), which unlocks a handful of bonus levels. All told, Seasons delivers quite a lot of bird-flinging bang for the buck--and there's no doubt more to come. (What holiday will be next? I suppose Father's Day isn't too likely, darn it.)

Angry Birds Seasons 1.4.0 is available for Android, iPhone/iPod, and iPad. And while we're on the subject of Easter, be sure to check out these six egg-cellent Easter apps for iOS .
