    Good for Rovio. They're a good developer. I love this game.
    I know some will complain that the iPad version is the same thing for 5x the cost. But, C'Mon! It's 6 bucks for both. No biggie.

    Great game. Finished on my iPhone and iPad. Can't wait for the next one.

    Have you gotten 3 stars on all levels?

    I got 3 stars in every level. I was really happy. But then I noticed I rarely played anymore.

    The good thing is, updates are coming. The iPod version has another level (with the big red bird). :)

    I wonder if anyone entered the Angry Birds Squawk Contest. I should have, but I let too much time go by and missed it.

    Fantastic game but, I found that once I transferred the app to my phone (from the touch) and it reset it to zero, I can't be arsed to do it again.

    I guess stories like this let those developers keep going similar to Hollywood star story.

    It's surprisingly addictive, and it's a nice twist on the theme. Kind of like an artillery game, but with the idea that you're trying to hit the right spot on structures to cause the proper domino effect.

    The fact that this game only costs a dollar on the iPhone/iPod Touch is amazing. I happily purchased the iPad version for $5 even though it was the same game. I'm happy to give these guys $6 of my money for such a great piece of software.

    I just bought the iPhone version for 99 cents and now that it has retina display support, it looks really good on the iPad blown up 2X. So don't bother buying the iPad specific version.

    No one should complain that the iPad version is $4.99. The iPhone version should be $4.99 rather than $.99!

    This is a game I honestly play 2 or 3 times a day. More than my games I have developed.

    Hats off to the well deserved Rovio!
