Tis the Season for Angry Birds on XBox Live

Published by at

It's great to be able to write that 'it's Wednesday' and 'we have another XBox Live release' for Windows Phone 8 handsets. Okay it might be Angry Birds Seasons, a game that has been published on other platforms for some time, but it's a top-line gaming title, and along with Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Star Wars, we think Rovio have worked out a smooth conversion process from their existing code base into Windows Phone 8. Can we have Bad Piggies next?

It's an Angry Birds game, so you'll know exactly what to expect level to level. Where 'Seasons' makes a difference is in the level design. These are built around different events around the world.

Angry Birds Seasons takes the captivating gameplay of the original to a whole new level! From Halloween to Chinese New Year, the birds are celebrating different festive seasons around the world! With more than 300 levels and regular free updates, these special episodes offer more challenging levels of pig-popping action and golden eggs to discover.

Keeping games updated has never been XBox Live's strong point, so I'll be watching carefully just how fast the expected updates for Seasons arrive on Windows Phone compared to iOS and Android.

What I'd also love to see are some numbers and success stories from Rovio. If they can make Windows Phone 8 work as part of a package alongside iOS and Android development, then it would be smart for the Windows Phone family to make sure every developer looking at the platform knows that it can work.

Right then, enough grandstanding, on with the game. Head to the Windows Store online, or on your Windows Phone handset.
