Angry Birds Halloween edition released for $1

The game is sold separately from the original version of Angry Birds, incorporating new levels and a different visual style.

Rovio has released a new edition of Angry Birds today in the form of Angry Birds Halloween. The new game, selling separately from the original, is listed at $1.

While Doodle Jump has incorporated free themed updates for the major holidays, Rovio is taking a different tact with its new Angry Birds game. Besides providing new visuals for the backgrounds and characters, Angry Birds Halloween will also allow players to fling their horror-themed birds at similarly-spooky pumpkins and pigs.

The new version of the 6.5-million selling hit will only be available on Apple platforms, despite the success of the original game when it released on Android phones earlier in the month.

What do you folks think about this new game? Do you wish Rovio had just updated the original game with new visuals without including new stages, or do you think this game is worth a buck?
