    The long-awaited and much-teased and hinted-at new Mighty Eagle upgrade for Angry Birds HD has finally surfaced in the iPad App Store, Tech Radar reports. The Angry Birds HD 1.5.0 update, “Ham ‘Em Highâ€, gives users the ability to purchase the Mighty Eagle in-app for £0.59/$0.99. They can then call in the Mighty Eagle to help decimate those chuckling pigs if they’re struggling on a particular level. The Mighty Eagle is a one-time purchase, so you’ll be able to use it over and over again once it’s replenished itself. Have to say though, many comments in the App Store are from people who are a bit angry at having to pay extra for said Mighty Eagle and who also point out that you can’t even see the Eagle when he/she appears. This could be a controversial move from Rovio at the end of a stellar year for them. Still, let’s look on the bright side for now, as other goodies featured in the update include a new theme in the Frontier Badlands, 15 new levels, a new golden egg and Game Center support. You can always ignore the Mighty Eagle if it gets your feathers all ruffled!

    You can download Angry Birds HD complete with the new update for £2.99/$4.99 by clicking here: Angry Birds HD for iPad on the iTunes App Store

    It's a good thing that you are only allowed to use the Mighty Eagle once an hour. It seems like a drastic measure, but if you would be able to use it every time you wanted, there wouldn't be too much left to this game. Still, an awesome addition!

    I have to admit, as a casual user of Angry Birds - I bought and used this eagle just to get off a level I was stuck on. I don't care about the points, so this was nice.

    BTW, I am a casual user because I got/get stuck. Maybe this'll help me keep interest..

    I think its a great addition. It also brings another mission to accomplish, you try to get a % of destruction, the more % the more points. I love it!

    p.s. Anybody know how to turn off the notification that says the Eagle is available again?

    I thought the eagle would help getting 3 stars on certain levels. Now I see it's another challenge to get to. Oh well. More fun for .99 cents.
