Angry Birds for iPhone, iPad updated with 15 new levels

Angry Birds has been updated with 15 new levels.

Mining and Dining with the burrowing piggies continues! With a bottomless appetite, the bad piggies have burrowed deep in underground caverns to hide the eggs they stole from you. Use the landscape and geology to your advantage to chase the pigs out of their hiding holes, gather rare gems, and retrieve the eggs!

  • 15 new levels for the Mine and Dine episode!
  • Find more collectible jewels!
  • Problems with loading times when starting Angry Birds? We fixed ’em!
  • Mighty Eagle still in business: Buy once, unlimited use!

With the release of Angry Birds Rio, I was expecting new content on the original Angry Birds to quickly cease. I'm so glad I was wrong.

Angry Birds is available on the iPhone for $0.99 on the iPhone and $1.99 on the iPad.

Blobster hits the App Store, a funky platform game for iPhone and iPad [video]

It looks like Chillingo may have another hit on its hands with Blobster. Blobster is a new platform game that is highly addictive and beautifully presented.

Blobster is an awesome platforming adventure with a twist! Flick the flubbery fella across incredible levels; avoid pitfalls, water hazards, squish pesky bad guys and collect amazing power-ups on your way to cleaning up Blobtopia and defeating Blobzilla!
  • Forty unique levels like you’ve never seen before, with more to come.
  • Amazing level design will have players in awe as they fling their way through the engrossing campaign.
  • Super easy to pick up and play, flick Blobster around using the intuitive control scheme.
  • Collect game-changing power ups, including the ability to rocket through the sky, float like an angel or transform into a giant.
  • A variety of pesky enemies to squash, each with their own special ability Blobster must overcome.
  • Twelve Special Bonus levels—gift them to your buddies.

My daughter asked me to buy her this game for her iPod touch yesterday. As we share the same account, I installed it on my iPhone and absolutely love it! It is a really fun and addictive game and could be the next huge iOS release. Of course there is always a downside; it is not a universal binary. The developer decided to release two versions; one for the iPhone and iPod touch and an HD version for the iPad. If you are still on the fence, take a look at the video after the break!

[$0.99 – iPhone iTunes link]

[$1.99 - iPad iTunes link]

Cut the Rope for iPhone updates with new Toy Box

Cut the Rope, the popular puzzle game by Chillingo, has updated with a new Toy Box, achievements and candy types.

Om Nom is jumping for joy with his new Toy Box! Now you can choose to feed him candy, donuts or cupcakes. And Om Nom has been making a special treat for you, too! He has drawn and colored some cute pictures for you to share with your friends, but he has been so busy catching candy he can't remember where he left them! Will you be the first to find them all and get them back to his gallery?

  • A new Toy Box
  • OmNom drawings feature
  • "Gift this app" button
  • Ability to post drawings to Facebook
  • New achievements
  • New candy types

Cut the Rope is one of my favorite iPhone games! When a new iPhone owner asks for a list of must-have apps, Cut the Rope is always on my list. The gameplay is so fun, yet many times infuriating when trying to get all 3 stars.

Cut the Rope is available for $0.99. Screenshots after the break.
