AngryBirdsGOCan you believe it? The Angry Birds franchise from Rovio Entertainment has finally turned five – which is a pretty long time for a mobile game. This mobile game franchise has seen its popularity explode across the world in an unprecedented manner ever since it rolled out, where you can find a copy of Angry Birds on almost all smartphone platforms imaginable. Just in case you were wondering how many birds have sacrificed themselves by being flung in the direction of them grinning green pigs, it seems that over 600 billion of them birds have made the trek – and counting.

Rather than calling it a birthday, Rovio has named the occasion to be a BirdDay instead, and as a method of paying a tribute to its fans, there is a new Angry Birds episode, Play the Next Level. Boasting of 30 new levels that is the result of the sweat and blood of fans, Play the Next Level is the final product of a social media competition which Rovio and its partners hosted some time ago, receiving thousands of entries from all over the world.
