Love it or hate it, the Angry Birds franchise is one of the most successful game series in the history of mobile. Today we’re looking at an update for Angry Birds Rio. We’re getting a ton of additions to the game that’s now at version 2.0. Plus, it's now free!
Head into the Windows Phone Store and you’ll see Angry Birds Rio at version 2.0. You can either download or update your existing install of Angry Birds Rio to take advantage of the new additions.
Here’s what’s new with version 2.0 of the game:
- New High Dive episode – Based on the upcoming sequel to Rio
- New levels – 20 new levels and 6 bonus levels set in the Brazilian port harbor
- New graphics
- River dolphins – Save these animals for points
- New move – Dive below to break open cages
You’ll also notice a new logo for Angry Birds Rio. The game is also free, which is a nice move on developer Rovio’s part. Previously, the game went for $0.99 in the Windows Phone Store. Note: We’re not seeing an update for the Windows Phone 7 version of the game, this looks like something only available for Windows Phone 8 users.
We just installed the game and it looks great. You'll find all old levels from 'Rio' there, but you can then toggle and see new levels for 'Rio 2'. Not a bad update and we might just get addicted again to Angry Birds.
Download Angry Birds Rio from the Windows Phone Store.
Thanks for the tip everyone!
