Angry Birds for iPhone and iPad Updated, New Episode, New Levels

Once again, the folks at Rovio updated their smash hit Angry Birds, and released a new version earlier today, dubbed version 1.6.0. The update offers a whole new episode, called ‘Mining and Dining with the Burrowing Piggies’, featuring 15 brand new levels. The new episode is cave themed, offers a slew of jewels to collect, and best of all, the developers added a new way to kill the pesky pigs: simply aim your birds at the hanging stalactites to (hopefully) get rid of them. The developers also updated several older levels, especially the ones almost impossible to beat – if you like challenging levels, you might to want to complete these levels before you update the app.

Thanks to this new update, Angry Birds now offers a total of over 200 levels. If you don’t own the game, Angry Birds for iPhone is available on the App Store for $0.99, while Angry Birds HD for iPad is available for $4.99.
