Angry Birds for Android is Out of Beta… And Free!!!!
It’s been all over the forums since early today, but it was XDA member T Mac‘s thread in the EVO forums that called our attention. You may remember a couple of months ago, the famous iPhone/iPod game, Angry Birds, was successfully ported to Android. At that time, only a lite limited version of the beta was available… until today.
The game has been available for free download since earlier today. Since the original download server was overloaded shortly after releasing this, mirrors started springing up all over XDA. This is the full version and it is perfectly legal (not warez). Just in case you are not familiar, the game basically involves you using a giant slingshot to catapult different kinds of birds against constructions that shield pigs from certain death. Use the birds to tear down the houses and kill those treacherous swines!
You can find more information in the game thread.
