The original Angry Birds and Angry Birds HD are now free for the first time in the App Store

The original Angry Birds game is now free in the App Store. The game that was first released over three years ago has seen some phenomenal success on every platform that it has been available on. Now for the first time ever, Rovio has decided to make it free.

The good news doesn’t stop there either, Angry Birds HD is also now available for free too so if you would rather grab it for your iPad and play it on the big screen then it won’t cost you a penny. Angry Birds has already hit the top of the App Store charts for the most downloaded free game

The Angry Birds franchise has to be one of the biggest success stories in mobile gaming history, Angry Birds is one of the first apps anyone downloads when they buy a new iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. What all started over three years ago as an unknown new game has now become a household name with spin off movies, plush toys and everything else in between. The original Angry Birds was followed by other games based on the same theme like Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Space, Bad Piggies, and most recently, Angry Birds Star Wars.

If you haven’t played the original Angry Birds yet, you are in for a real treat. Make sure you grab it while it is free, as we don’t know if this is a permanent move by Rovio.
