If you've had an Android phone for more than, say, 6 minutes, then there's a good chance that you have Angry Birds installed. Actually, there's a good chance that you all all three versions of Angry Birds installed - the original, Seasons, and the newest of the three: Rio (based on the movie of the same name).

The latter has an update coming next week, dubbed Beach Volley, that will bring about several new levels, but this time the setting is a beach, and you won't be killing pigs or freeing birds. This go around you have an new, even more dangerous enemy: monkeys.

This calls for a teaser trailer! Check it out:

Did you see what I saw? Yeah, that's Blu and Jewel from the movie, apparently tied together at their feet, ready to for some flingy action. Judging by the trailer, their special skills seems to be fly and charge forward, but I'm kind of fuzzy on exact details. I guess, we'll just have to wait and see next week.

Update: Apparently neither Blu and Jewel nor the monkeys are new, so I apologize for my inaccuracies. I generally don't make it past the first few levels of any of the Angry Birds games before getting bored, so I jumped to conclusions on this one. Thanks to those that pointed this out to me!

    Uh, the current version of Rio already has monkeys and the tied-together birds. Thanks for your ignorance, Cameron!

      Not everybody has your mad skillz, so maybe they haven’t unlocked the second set of levels.

      I would hardly call it "ignorance," though I have updated the article to reflect my inaccuracies.

      As stated in the update, I don't usually play past the first few levels.

      The current version barely has the tied birds. You get to use them once on the final level :\

  • Tee

    Tied birds or not. It's a great game and I've been waiting it to be upgraded.

    How on earth could you write an article on this game without achieving 3 stars on every level and all of the hidden goodness. You really should have had a much more intimate level of knowledge about the game before notifying us of an update. You've had write ups of about 25 apps in the past 9 days, not counting the best of the week and 35+ apps you reviewed in that. You mean to tell me you haven't pressed deep into each app and are not 100% aware of every detail? I don't think I can trust you again.

      I agree, Cameron should be tar and feathered.
