Angry Birds Brings Halloween Special Edition to the App Store

New Apps from Rovio Available Exclusively on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

Espoo - October 20, 2010 - With Halloween fast approaching, Rovio is excited to announce that special editions of its popular Angry Birds game - Angry Birds Halloween for iPhone and iPod touch and Angry Birds Halloween HD for iPad - are available on the App Store. Angry Birds has become a global phenomenon, and the new Halloween-themed games combine the game play of Angry Birds with Halloween treats like pumpkins, ghosts, ghouls and ghastly costumes.

Angry Birds Halloween includes 45 levels, which is three times more than regular updates. However, that's not all there is to these special edition apps; every aspect of the game has been recreated in the spirit of Halloween, so expect new spooky theme music, hair-raising graphical themes, and puzzling pumpkin-smashing action.

"With Angry Birds Halloween, we wanted to provide our fans with a special treat," said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. "In addition to this new experience, we will also keep providing continuous free updates for Angry Birds."

Angry Birds Halloween is available for $0.99 and Angry Birds Halloween HD for $1.99 from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
