Angry Birds Rio
We told you it was coming, but now the latest installment in the Angry Birds saga and film tie-in, Angry Birds Rio, is now available for download for both the iPhone and Android. Bringing the now classic Angry Birds gameplay to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the Birds are on a war-path to find their friends Blu and Jewel, the two macaws who are the 'stars' of the upcoming animated film, Rio.

The game features the same slingshot action as previous Angry Birds titles, including all your favorite furious feathered friends. You get 60 levels to start you off, with Rovio promising 'Episodic updates throughout 2011.' Rio also comes packing a set of new achievements, 'special hidden fruits,' and a 'spectacular boss fight.'

While the game costs 99 cents on the iTunes App Store, the Amazon Appstore exclusive on the Android platform is free for 24-hours as part of Amazon's free app of the day promotion. So if you're an Android wielder, get over to the Amazon Appstore for Android (only available in the US) and download Angry Birds Rio now.
