Angry_Birds_logoRenowned games publisher, Clickgamer, has announced the distinctive new action-puzzle game, Angry Birds, for iPhone and iPod touch. Developed by the award-winning Rovio Mobile, Angry Birds puts players in control of a flock of avian assassins. These angry birds are desperate to reclaim their eggs from some pesky thieving pigs.

The birds are fired from a catapult to smash into the pigs and blast through their fiendishly created hideouts. The smooth graphics engine with high-quality cartoon visuals and audio create a novel, addictive game for all.
