Angry Birds, being the flagship game of the iDevice, should really have all the features we should except nowadays. The developers must be making money hand over foot with this IP. Why can't they include things like iCloud? Or make it a universal title? Or have retina graphics for the 3rd gen iPad? Sure, some will say these may come with time, but I don't recall the original Angry Birds receiving a retina update for the iPhone.

Tried yesterday, like it more than Rio, definitely more interesting gameplay.

Great game.

At first I thought 3-starring levels just meant completing with one shot - often works, but not always!

in these cases, I tend to wait for sales in order to pay for the two apps the amount that I'd have gladly paid for a universal release.

But you still lose out, because the possibility for iCloud support is gone. And presumably you have to double-pay for all the IAP? Which for all we know, every new level pack will be?

For the record, I'm skipping this game, for all the reasons people have mentioned here. (Well, with the exception of not being annoyed by the success of the series itself, although this release is even more shameful in light of it.)

is one of the nominees for
Touch Arcade Game of the Week

Do you like to help Angry Birds who find themselves floating in a strange new galaxy, surrounded by space pigs?
