If you happen to be among the last people on the planet who still don't have Angry Birds [$0.99 / $2.99 (HD)], guess what? It's free, so you've got absolutely no excuse anymore. Angry Birds has turned into a classic of sorts on the App Store, and has been ported to basically ever platform under the sun, including, hopefully, your refrigerator at some point in the not too distant terrifying future.

In weirder Angry Birds news, Angry Birds Space [$0.99 / $2.99 (HD)] has been updated with an all-new version of the theme song by Slash. Yes, as in Guns 'n' Roses Slash. It's pretty wicked, I guess, but I'm still stuck on the fact that an 80's rock god is playing the Angry Birds theme.

These are weird times we live in.

    I...I don't even know anymore. The franchise is such a cash cow.

      I know right, the games are now filled with IAP, and to me, it feels like they are like a FREEMIUM game, but you pay for them, and I don't like the new music in angry birds space, I liked the original music better. :(

      • Eegah

        To be fair, that Eagle IAP in the OG Angry Birds basically works as a new game mode for all the levels and is a one-time purchase. Trying to 100% the levels is hard as snot too. Whatever other IAP there is (I forget) isn't necessary and can be turned off completely. Really apart from lack of Universal support we're talking about a game that's seen support and new levels for what, must be going on four years now?

        The lack of Universal support is a big problem, but the bigger problem to me is the lack of iCloud support. You say the game's been supported 4 years, and it's true that I've had it installed on multiple devices over that time, but I can't see myself ever starting it up again because all of my progress is lost with those devices. Support is nothing if it's essentially inaccessible.

        As huge as Rovio is these days, the lack of major platform feature support is incredibly off-putting.

        I see what you did there

    Good news 4 the one person who hasn't tried it

  • dancj

    That'll be the free iTunes app of the week then.

    This is good for those of us who didn't fancy paying for it twice to get it on the iPhone and iPad. That said, as they've already given away Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Seasons, I can't see much point in having this as well.

  • Benjamin Rodriguez

    well I for one haven't bought it yet lol. sooo :) yay

  • SmackDatButt

    Ugh.

    Angry Birds has lived long last it's prime, for a game that copied it's game style off of Crush The Castle.

  • spared_mercy

    I honestly thought the headline meant 'Slash' as in 'Price Slash'. GnR Slash was the furthest thing from my mind when thinking about Angry Birds...

  • Psiufoxx

    I'm one of those last people on the planet. Thanks for the freebie Rovio.

  • cofunguy

    Sorry, won't try it even for free. Not even remotely interested, even less so for iapp freenium apps!

    • Karzay

      Would you try them in a box?
      Would you try them with a fox?

      ok

    Thank god. I was just thinking I wanted more washed up rock musicians shoehorned into my angry birds.

    WE LIVE IN A SIMULATION.

  • Chefbot

    I don't find Slash to be that far fetched since there was that Freddie for a Day thing for the Facebook version (I think that's the version).
