      Those fun little casual games have ten times the players of bigger games, and can be developed in one tenth the time. There's serious money in there - more than in the big game market.

        Yes but trailers and teasers are supposed to have some link to the forthcoming film/game. This is totally out of character with a cutesy game like AB.

    Not a surprise. There's already a level available to play

    on Angry Birds Seasons, Summer Pignic, level 17.

    I've always assumed that they released a test level because they didn't have day 17 ready in time (Summer Pignic levels were released on a daily basis).
