The company said:

Rovio Classics: Angry Birds is a recreation of the game that started it all. Harkening back to the golden age of 2012, Rovio Classics: Angry Birds features all of the bird flinging satisfaction of the original Angry Birds game, now rebuilt for modern devices. Get your slingshot fingers ready for some super-satisfying bird-flinging mayhem, and a healthy dose of nostalgia.

Bringing back the classic game means users can play all 8 original episodes of Angry Birds, a total of 390 levels. There are no in-app purchases and no ads, but the game isn't free, costing $0.99 to buy. It can be downloaded and played on both iPhone and iPad. From the App Store:

We're bringing back 2012 with Rovio Classics: Angry Birds!

Rebuilt from the ground up, Rovio Classics: Angry Birds is a faithful re-make of the original Angry Birds game that took the world by storm!

The game also includes the 2010 in-app purchase expansion the Mighty Eagle, featured in the new game at no additional cost.
