Angry Birds Rio for iPhone, iPad released!


I think the links or broken or you pulled the trigger a little to early on this one. No where to be found in the App store yet

Ah just realized it says those are new Zealand app store links and it still isn't avail in the us app store. Will have to try again in the morning. Oh well. Didn't want to stay up all night playing it anyways so ha!

Yeah, they probably set the release date to the 22nd. It's already past midnight here and it's available.

YThis completely blos, tiered release....
At least they dont have Apple's ipad2 problem..
Once it is out, as many people as there are can get their own copy (:

Ha! Like I'm gonna give them anymore money. I'm not giving them money for a paid app that feeds me a bunch of ads. I'm gonna wait until they reverse that.

Angry birds on graphics steroids. No pigs? And diffilculty is ridiculously easy. Finished already and i'm not that good at it. No challenge whatsoever.
