For iPhone/iPad Users

Want to add a bit of anger to this year's Christmas season? Then let Rovio and Angry Birds help you out - thanks to an update coming to everyone's favorite bird-slinging, pig-hitting iPhone game.

It'll be a free update to anyone who buys or has already bought the Halloween version of Angry Birds.

Like the original Angry Birds iPhone game, Angry Birds Halloween sells for 99 cents on the App Store and gives users a number of new bird-flinging levels in a black-and-orange backdrop with different scenery.

However, unlike the core game, the Halloween edition did not expand beyond the iPhone, leaving Android users on the wrong side of the trick-or-treat spectrum.

A Twitter user, nickbouwhuis, poked Rovio in a message asking if the upcoming slate of Christmas levels would cost money. Rovio responded in its own Tweet, saying, "it's a free update to the Halloween game for iPhone and iPad."

So it sounds like the Christmas Angry Birds game will be exclusive to iDevices as well. Of course, Android guys can't complain too much since their version of the casual game is a free download while anyone with an iPhone or iPad has to pay for it. Rovio earns ad money for copies downloaded to Android.

This, combined with Angry Birds plush toys and iPhone cases, ensures that this year, the halls will be decked with boughs of ticked-off chirping instead of the usual holly.
