Rovio goes trick or tweeting with Halloween-themed Angry Birds (video)

26 Oct 2012

To celebrate the year’s spookiest holiday (and because there isn’t a theme these birds won’t latch onto), Rovio has introduced a new episode for Angry Birds Seasons, plus a Halloween tournament on Angry Birds Friends.

Angry Birds Friends, the Facebook-based game, is getting into the Halloween spirit with a special Halloween tournament featuring six new levels, zombie pigs and some other tricks and treats. The tournament is open only from 29 October to 4 November.

There’s also a new Haunted Hogs episode for Angry Birds Seasons, featuring 30 levels set in a haunted house. And, in this episode, the pigs have a new ‘ghost bricks’ with which to fortify their … eh … forts.

The short cartoon below introduces the new episode, as well as a terrifying Frankenpig – or is it? – while the second video gives a glimpse of the gameplay.
