"Angry Birds Toons" will take flight on broadcast TV this Saturday, as well as on all Angry Birds apps and certain video-on-demand services this Sunday, game maker Rovio said today. The series will feature 52 episodes, with a new one launched each week.

Angry Birds HD for the iPad was available for $2.99. Rovio previously offered free versions of the titles, but those were limited to only a few levels. Those now appear to be gone from the App Store.

The popularity of Angry Birds is almost stratospheric at this point, so rip-off games make sense. This non-Rovio-approved app puts some of your favorite birds in their least exciting adventure yet. When it works, Angry Birds Adventure has you match tiles with the characters to clear the board. Sadly, you'll be lucky to even make it through a single game as the app tends to crash.
This app only takes a few seconds to download to your phone as it's quite small in size. Once it's there, you won't see any opening sequence or tutorial, you'… Read more

ESPOO, Finland -- The executive offices of Angry Birds creator Rovio were exactly how I imagined them.

It's good versus evil: Rebel Angry Birds p.o.'ed by invading … Read more
