Angry Birds Classic Windows Phone 8

Angry Birds Classic for Windows Phone 8 adds 'Red’s Mighty Feathers' episode in latest update

It looks like Rovio is getting on the ball with delivering Angry Birds updates as the original version for Windows Phone 8 got bumped to version 3.2 today and this isn’t just bug fixes, folks, it’s new stuff.

The fresh update adds the Red’s Mighty Feathers episode, which ought to bring 15 new levels to Windows Phone 8 (assuming it’s getting feature parity with other platforms).

So what is Red’s Mighty Feathers episode? Glad you asked.

From the updated game description:

“The #1 app of all time gets a fun new update! You may be an expert pig popper, but how will you cope with a moving target? One bird stands between the egg and the advancing pig army in the all-new Red’s Mighty Feathers episode. The fearless Red Bird faces wave after wave of Bad Piggies in their crazy contraptions. But wait! He now has some magic feathers from the Mighty Eagle himself – giving Red incredible new powers as he darts toward those pesky pigs at incredible speed!”

What makes this interesting is that this new episode by Rovio was only rolled out at the beginning of July for iOS and Android. While we still had to wait an extra 48 days, that’s still a fairly decent turnaround for Windows Phone and at least closes the gap, if only slightly.

You can watch a trailer of the Red’s episode above to see it in action. If you have a Windows Phone 8 device, you can grab the update in the Store right now.

Angry Birds Classic for Windows Phone 8 adds 'Red’s Mighty Feathers' episode in latest update


I could never advance beyond level 43, even though I beat it, in royal revolt, I think there is bug, sent them a twitter no response

Angry birds has always been boring... I still haven't finished all the levels from the original game. Soooo tedious

That's what I'm wondering. I won't re-download it if it doesn't have new achievements. The only issue is that for arcade games, I believe there is the limit of 200G per game. This game already has 200G, so I think it's a no

They upped the arcade limit to 400 a while ago, though I don't think I've seen any free DLC that adds achievements, only paid content. Anyway, doesn't show anything new, so I'm betting "no" as well.

Yeah, the new icon :p
Still waiting until they bring the Sync mode to WP, I'm not going to play it twice.

All that's keeping me from completely loosing interest in the iPhone are 2 games:
Angry Birds Friends and Plants vs. Zombies 2.... get them on WP8 and I ditch the Apple.

Since AB Friends is a Facebook-connect game, and there are still no games on WP which have it (like Candy Crush, Diamond Dash), I don't see it comung fast. And PvsZ2 is an iOS exclusive (for now), and I don't think we get it earlier than Android.

The only one I ever finished was AB Rio. These are still great to play during a long plane ride.
