Considering the numbers Rovio Mobile throws out when talking about the penetration of Angry Birds, it’s hard to imagine that there’s more than a dozen or so people walking the planet who haven’t purchased the physics-based puzzle title. But just in case you missed out on the HD version specifically, it’s now much cheaper than what it was. As of yesterday, the $4.99 title is $1.99, which is around a healthy three dollars worth of savings.
Angry Birds HD is, essentially, the iPhone version but bigger. Go figure, right? Yet, it does come off as a richer experience due to the enhanced screen real estate of the iPad. I, like many others, have drained a billion hours into this specific version, so I’ll vouch for its quality. And as a value proposition at this price point, it’s sorta a no-brainer. If you like smashing stuff with birds, get it. If you don’t, well, you can complain in the comments-- Extra points for mentioning Crush the Castle.
In other Angry Birds news (we're so topical), Rovio's Web shop is having a "Deal of the Day" on the black bird plushies. For a limited time, you can grab one for $12.99. Also, according to a recent Rovio tweet, the store has new international shipping prices. Packages to the US and UK are only $5, while Europe is $7. Sadly, no Angry Bird plushies ship with a dog as cute as this one. Swoon!
