Games for Playbook: Angry Birds 2.3.0

Comments

Rovio is yet another publisher showing confidence in the BlackBerry Playbook as they push out yet another update to their popular franchise Angry birds.

In version 2.1 we got to see 15 new tropical levels. 2.2 brought us even MORE tropical levels. Today Angry Birds 2.3.0 brings us “PIGGEST levels ever!” says the App World description.
