Windows Phone 8 can now finally get the Hoth update for Angry Birds Star Wars. Rovio Entertainment had rolled out Angry Birds Star Wars for iOS, Android and devices on November 8, 2012. But the Windows Phone 7 (Windows 7.5 and Windows 7.8) and Windows Phone 8 users had to wait for a good one month to get this app on their mobile device.
However, this app for Windows Phone 8 only had Tatooine, the Death Star, and the Jedi Trials on Dagobah levels, while that of iOS and Android users had got the first instalment of Hoth update as well. Later, in January iOS and Android users got another Hoth update, while the Windows Phone users were kept waiting.
Thankfully, the Windows Phone 8 app that has been rolled out includes the last two previous Hoth releases, which means that one will get total of 40 new levels, in addition to some bonus levels. However, these Hoth levels will be locked by default and one will have to play the earlier levels of Tatooine, the Death Star, and the Jedi Trials on Dagobah lvels to be able unlock the new ones.
Angry Birds is one of the popular games on the mobile. Since the launch of the app in 2009, the Angry Birds game has been downloaded more than one billion times across various platforms and versions. Some of its popular titles include Angry Birds, Angry Birds Season, Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Reo. Angry Birds Star Wars is the most recent venture by the company.
After the success of the game Rovio Entertainment is also producing an Angry Birds 3D animated movie which is expected to release in 2016 and there are plans for theme parks in various parts of the world.
Just a day ago, Spotify app for Windows Phone 8 became available for the Windows Phone 8 smartphones. It is noteworthy, that this app was earlier available for Windows Phone 7 users. With the addition of Angry Birds Star Wars, we are hoping that the company will continue to add applications with the same momentum even in the future and we will finally get to see some quality apps in the Microsoft Marketplace.
