What do you call it when a company releases nearly identical levels of a game with a holiday theme? If you answered, “Obviously a free update, LOL, that’s what Doodle Jump does!” than you’d be sadly mistaken. Unless, of course, you’re actually talking about Doodle Jump.
Angry Birds, on the other hand, is about milking loyal customers.
They’re angry because they have no sense of existential purpose.
That being said, it’s just $1.99 on the iPad right now, which puts it at a solid three dollars less than its Halloween-less counterpart. However, the original has like a billion levels, and the spine-chilling Halloween version only comes with 45 levels. So, it is worth the two bucks? Maybe. It is Angry Birds, after all.
And besides, it comes with especially spooky new cutscenes.
