Angry Birds (classic) gets new powerups, 15 new levels

Published by at

Who'd have thought it? Even in 2014, the original Angry Birds title has managed to gain an update, with new levels (in the 'Short Fuse' episode) and a number of 'powerups'.  Classic - and much copied - gaming at its best, and with Windows Phone users continuing to get value for money for their initial purchase.

From the official changelog:

Get ready for the after shock! That’s right, Bomb Bird is back with his devastating Shock Wave power in 15 electrifying NEW levels. This brings the grand total to 45 levels for the Short Fuse episode!

 Angry Birds now has power-ups! Boost your birds’ abilities and three-star levels to unlock secret content! Angry Birds now has the following amazing power-ups:

  • Sling Scope for laser targeting
  • King Sling for maximum flinging power
  • Super Seeds to supersize your birds
  • Birdquake to shake pigs’ defenses to the ground!

Need an extra bird? Use an extra black bird with shockwave to demolish the level!

Here's the new version in action:


You can try or buy Angry Birds here in the Windows Phone Store. You don't, surely, need more comment here by now? I have to confess to getting stuck somewhere in the middle of Angry Birds several times and thus never likely to even see the new levels. Not enough imagination from me? Dexterity or eyesight not up to scratch?

Classic gaming, anyway - how far have you got in the original?
