What happens when everyone's favorite fierce fowl get caged and shipped to Rio? They get very angry!

The original Angry Birds have been kidnapped and taken to the magical city of Rio de Janeiro! Theyve managed to escape, but now they must save their friends Blu and Jewel two rare macaws and the stars of the hit movies, Rio and Rio 2.

The Mighty Eagle is a one-time in-app purchase that you can use forever. If you get stuck on a level, this cool creature will dive from the skies to smash those meddling monkeys into oblivion. Theres just one catch: you can only use the Mighty Eagle once per hour! Mighty Eagle also includes all new gameplay goals and achievements.

Boosting your birds abilities helps you complete levels with three stars so you can unlock extra content! Power-ups include the Sling Scope for laser targeting, Power Potion to supersize your birds, Samba Burst for dancing destruction, TNT for a little explosive help and Call the Flock for a blizzard of Macaw mayhem!

320 FUN LEVELS! Plus 72 action-packed bonus levels across 12 addictive episodes!

SPECTACULAR BOSS FIGHTS! Put your bird flinging skills to the ultimate test!

CALL THE FLOCK! Get some demolition help from your Macaw buddies!

POWER POTION! Juice up your bird! Power Potion transforms any bird into a devastating giant!

In the UK I pay to have BBC with no adverts.

This is one big advert and they want me to pay?

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

Do you consider ALL tie-ins to movies, tv series, comics, written works, other games, and any other form of related media, as big adverts? That is probably the only way you could keep that argument consistent.

Rovio have continuously updated Angry Birds with free content for years now, arguably one of the most supportive devs in iOS history. Putting another dollar in their pockets (and getting 60 levels in return) is more than just fair.

(That said, I've only ever played 5 levels of Angry Birds. But I've bought both Angry Birds and Seasons to offer support, and because there are few games more appreciated when you hand a friend you iDevice to provide her with a few minutes of entertainment.)
