Didn't really expect to still see new version of Angry Birds coming out after almost two years after the original release.

My forecast, there will sure be a paid episode, just like Angry Birds Space had one.

to say the games aren't available on the store is hyperbolic. It is more an issue of class. Rovio doesn't need the charts to market their games. They have mind share thanks to the games, the plush dolls, the shirts.

Other smaller companies not so much. They need things like the charts to help out their efforts so they can grow to that level. So when a major company hogs the limelight, well it's tacky.

They can make the games. they can sell the games. But when they make something like 'seasons' which is really just a level pack and sell it as a new app rather than a level pack in the original game that's a crude and anticompetitive move. Of course it's allowed in the rules since Apple won't set up controls and force companies to use IAP anymore than they will stop this whole two versions for free and paid to get rid of the apps but that doesn't make it any less crude and obnoxious.

Now that Disney bought Lucasfilms don't be shocked if they turn to their fav game and we get Temple Run: Star Wars. Hell I'm still expecting to see a Temple Run: Marvel at some point. or Temple Run: Muppets.

Perhaps Disney will buy Rovio and we'll get Angry Birds games as well. And even Bad Piggies games (that would be an apt one for the Muppets since it already as a pig in it)

Not a fav move of mine either. There comes a point when such things are just being greedy.

I've got to agree with the comments that question why so many people feel such negativity and, it seems, almost hate for this new Angry Birds app coming out on Nov 8. Rovio's Angry Birds apps are not deep, involved production or utility apps. They're meant to be lighthearted fun. And, as one person commented, I, personally, have had a lot of fun with all the different versions since the beginning-at very little cost. Judging by the sales records, I'm only one of an enormous number of people who feel this way. If you're one of the minority who don't feel that way, just don't buy them and you won't be affected. I can promise you that one person's comment stating that eventually, all the Angry Birds apps will fill up the listings on the AppStore and prevent other apps from having a chance is silly. Lighten up and have fun with the apps—or don't. Your choice. You won't be hurt either way.

Ok Angry Birds Star Wars are officially out! Just downloaded it and i can say with certainty that's the best angry birds game since the first one! I'm playing for 2 hours nonstop! I'm writting a small review right now at my blog.

This game looks like a lot of fun, can't wait to get my new iPad mini and buy this game to play on it.
Sorry, it was a comment based on my opinion. As you can probably guess I'm not that interested in this series.
