The new game is called "Rovio Classics: Angry Birds" and is a faithful recreation of the 2012 version of the game. All 390 levels are here with the Mighty Eagle add-on included, only for $0.99. There are no ads or in-app purchases.

Rovio has made many iterations of its "Angry Birds" game over the years from "Angry Birds: Space" to a destructive cart builder. However, fans of the original game will find this new version to be a nostalgic revisit to the past without gimmicks or new characters.

This game isn't to be confused with the Apple Arcade game called "Angry Birds: Reloaded" which is a whole new modern game with characters from the movie and challenge modes.

"Rovio Classics: Angry Birds" was completely rebuilt so the game retains the look and feel of the classic, sound effects and all, while being able to work on modern devices with their higher resolutions and requirements. The original game debuted on iPhone in 2009 and dominated App Store charts for years after.

    Completely rebuilt but exactly like the classical game. What the heck is new then — the hires graphics? I could have done that with Pixelmator …for free.

    Looks like the app rebuild is true to the original, complete with the privacy invasion features.

    Interestingly, it appears that its predecessor (the original Angry Birds, as a free download with ads and in-app purchases) is no longer in the app store.  It doesn't even show up in my purchase history on the phone where I have it installed.

    On the other hand, $1 for the full game, including the Mighty Eagle (which is a $5 in-app purchase on the ad-supported version) is a great deal for a really fun game.

    They thought they were gonna be this huge corporation and they ended up being a one-hit wonder.

    It may be only one, but it's one hit more than most here have done. And they may have made more money than most here as well. It's not a particularly challenging game but many people will get their 99¢ worth.
