Those Angry Birds are still angry, but now they've got extra levels and a new power to defeat their piggy nemeses.

Available for iOS and Android, the latest update to the original Angry Birds adds 15 extra levels. A new power also joins the arsenal as you now can manually target your Red weapon to achieve greater accuracy.

Released Monday, the new update is free for all Angry Birds owners. Rovia said the next planned update to the game will be available in November.
