It’s quite astonishing to think that two years has passed since the release of a little game about throwing birds at pigs. Yup, it’s Angry Birds‘s second birthday!

The biggest gaming success story on the app store is celebrating such exciting times with the release of 15 brand new levels full of birthday cakes and celebratory balloons. Very appropriate given developers, Rovio’s history of regularly updating the title.

Included within this update is the new Orange Bird that propels any object it touches plus special birthday achievements.

Co-founder and co-general manager at Chillingo, Chris Byatte, sums up the magnitude of the game best: “After two years, Angry Birds continues to delight fans and remain a steady fixture on the App Store’s top ten charts .This is quite a testament to the success indie developers can achieve with the right title, publishing partner and promotional support.”

Check out the screenshots below while downloading the update. It’s available now for iPhone and iPad owners.

Happy birthday you crazy, Angry Birds!
