Finally, some good news for Windows Phone 7 users! Rovio’s popular Angry Birds game franchise, which is available on the iOS and Android platforms, as finally landed on the Windows Phone platform. It would feel like something is missing on your smartphone if you don’t have Angry Birds installed, as there is something about attempting to collect three stars that make everyone go gaga.

Angry Birds is available for download in the Windows Marketplace for $2.99 in the US, and for those who don’t want to pay for the game, you can always try the game’s free version. The game is scheduled to be released on April 6, but was moved to June 29, which is today.

Microsoft had promised that Angry Birds would be ready for release on May 25, but they waited until its official launch was close to announce the game’s delay. Microsoft said that the game has been added to its “Must Have” section of its Marketplace website.

With more than 160 levels available to play, this game is definitely worth every penny you paid.

In other Angry Birds-related news, there was talk of an Angry Bird film adaptation in the works. Rovio acquired David Maisel, former chairman of Marvel Studios, to be the company’s Special Advisor.

As a Special Advisor, Maisel will be helping Rovio’s entertainment strategy and will help the company transition to areas in the entertainment field.

“David was instrumental in rebooting Marvel Studios and turning it into a blockbuster-producing powerhouse,” said Rovio CEO Michael Hed. “We welcome his experience and vision as we continue broadening our entertainment production scope at Rovio.”

With the release of Angry Birds on all major mobile platforms, is this a good time for them to make a motion picture?
