Angry Birds fans, you might want to check the "My Apps" section of the Market now - your favorite game just received an update, and it's a big one.

In addition to goodies like a graphics toggle for lower-end devices and support for the code that will be displayed in Rovio's Super Bowl ad (the code will unlock another level), update 1.5.1 adds a fifth episode - "Ham 'Em High." It includes 30 new Wild West-themed levels, as well as 15 levels currently marked as "Coming Soon." Have a look:

Just like previous Angry Birds levels, Ham 'Em High is insanely addictive. Its graphics are good, and its gameplay is... oh, just update the damn app already. You can find its QR code and Market link below.

Update: The new SMS permission requirement is just a mistake, says Rovio. It will be fixed on Monday.

    WTF, . . . Bing? on a google android game? WTF is all these ads, i guess coz its free we have to suffer these ads. Hope an app maker makes an adblocker app.

    It isn't showing up in my Android Market anymore. Finally, the app can run on my older hardware, but now it's missing. :(

    I guess I will have to sideload it to play it. There goes all my progress. :(

      Same here, not showing up for my HTC Hero running 2.2.

  • Liz

    Update won't install on my iPhone 3GS.

  • mikeyd85

    It's showing on my Hero (Cronos Froyo 1.7.x).

    • mikeyd85

      As an update, it still plays like s*** on a Hero.

  • Holly

    I can't see angry birds in the market anymore, hero running 2.2 cyanogen mod. I checked with my son's evo, and it is there. Any ideas why it has disappeared? I thought about uninstalling and reinstalling to try to update, but no update available? Since it is not appearing, I am afraid all my progress will be gone if I try to do anything. Intel App Center is also not showing an update to include Ham em High. Maybe just a matter of time, but I thought I read somewhere that it was already available.
