Angry Birds Now Available for Windows Phone 7
By on June 29th, 2011

Hurry! Angry Birds is now available in the Windows Phone Marketplace. After the initial announcement by the game developers, Rovio, in February and Microsoft in May, and later pushing the announced date in June to June 29, Angry Birds has finally landed. The game also ends the Xbox’s Must Have Game series for Windows Phone.

Angry Birds for Windows Phone 7

The best-seller game, inspiring merchandise, popular culture references, and rumors have it that a movie too, offers hours of challenging, physics-based demolition gameplay, and lots of replay value. Angry Birds is one of the most popular iPhone and iPad apps, ported to Google’s Android OS a few months back, and also released as a PC game recently. Last month, Rovio released an Angry Birds version for Google Chrome browser as a featured app on Chrome Web Store.

Instead of 255 levels available for other platforms, Angry Birds for Windows Phone 7 offers only 165 levels. Each of the 165 levels require logic, skill, and brute force to clear. It’s just few games as yet, but I have a feeling that Angry Birds for Windows Phone 7 is a little harder than on other platforms. I’m guessing additional levels will be made available as updates.

The game offers Xbox LIVE integration so killing pigs would add to your Xbox LIVE achievements. Angry Birds is free to try and $2.99 to buy. Get dem pigs!
