Angry Birds HD update 1.3.4 from Chillingo is live now in the iTunes App Store, and it’s a big one! If you’re not already familiar with one of the most popular and addictive iPhone and now iPad games, Angry Birds features a load of birds who are, um, angry, because some dastardly green pigs have stolen their eggs. Players must use the birds’ destructive powers to destroy the pigs’ castles.
This latest update brings the iPad version in line with the iPhone one, adding a new bird, 45 new levels, three new themes, golden eggs, sweep menus, a crystal update and new achievements. The update also fixes any bugs associated with the HD version of the game, including crashes that some players have been experiencing on the iPad.
To celebrate the new update, Chillingo and Rovio are also launching a competition to win one iPad a week for the next three weeks. For the first week, all you have to do is follow Chillingo at Chillingo (chillingo) on Twitter, re-tweet the contest post on your own Twitter, submit a sketch of a new Angry Birds level to email@example.com, and then sit back and wait for Chillingo and Rovio to hopefully choose you as the winner of an iPad. Don’t hang about though, as the contest ends at 6pm PT on Friday July 9th.
