Are you a fan of Angry Birds and you just can’t get enough? Then make sure you head to the Store to grab Angry Bird Rio, version 1.7, which is now live for Windows Phone 8 (the 7.x version has not yet been updated).
So what does version 1.7 bring? Bug fixes? Performance enhancements? Nope, how about some actual new gameplay with the Golden Beachball pack.
Angry Birds Rio v1.7 changes
- Enjoy the sunset in 15 new beach levels!
- Unlock bonus levels by collecting all the golden cherries!
- Fun surprises including floating pig balloons and inflatable fish pool toys!
Not a bad update from Rovio, who have been fairly regular lately with updates to their Angry Birds lineup on Windows Phone. In fact, we now have five Angry Birds titles, including Original, Rio, Star Wars, Seasons and Space. This month we’ll be adding a sixth to that list with Angry Birds Star Wars II, which lands on September 19th.
Angry Birds Rio features 225 action packed levels along with 45 bonus levels (maybe more with today’s update, hard to tell). This version of the game is optimized for Windows Phone 8 (HD graphics) and is Xbox Live enabled for those achievement hunters out there.
We’ll keep an eye out to see if the 7.x version gets updated too.

Spoiler: While the CPU is just OK, that 1660 Ti definitely bumps up the Book 3's potential.
