Angry Birds goes goth at midnight

Those who have iOS devices will be able to download a special Halloween version of Angry Birds tonight at midnight.

Rovio

Attention, Angry Birds fans! According to the game's maker Rovio, Angry Birds: Halloween should be hitting Apple's App Store tonight at midnight your local time.

The game is exclusive to Apple's iOS platform, with a regular version for iPhones and iPod Touches at 99 cents, and an HD version for iPads for $1.99.

It's not an add-on, but a stand-alone game with 45 levels, new elements, graphics, and sounds. And don't worry about future Angry Birds updates, Rovio has pledged to keep adding new levels to the regular game, which I've beaten, with three stars, on every level and every egg. Jealous?

So, yeah, I know what I'll be doing at midnight.
