Angry Birds fans who play the game on a Nook Color now have a reason to trudge to Barnes & Noble. The book retailer will be offering a promotion for the game, allowing users who play the game while connected to its Wi-Fi to receive the Mighty Eagle downloadable character free of charge.


The Mighty Eagle character allows you to insta-clear pesky levels, essentially giving you a "level skip" cheat for the popular puzzler. Developer Rovio is promising more rewards for those who make return trips to the store - could this be the beginning of more location-aware promoting?

While Angry Birds is a free download to "regular" Android devices, it costs a full $3 for Nook Color tablets.
