Looks like this month is a really good one to be a Windows Phone gamer if Angry Birds is your thing. Not only was Angry Birds Classic (WP) added to the Marketplace, but both that title and Angry Birds Star Wars were recently updated to fix problems and add levels.

This week's release sees Angry Birds Rio, a movie tie-in title that has been available on other markets for some time now, finally arrive to the Windows Phone platform.

Angry Birds Rio (WP) - $0.99/£0.79
What happens when everyone's favorite fierce fowl get caged and shipped to Rio? They get very angry!

In Angry Birds Rio, the original Angry Birds are kidnapped and taken to the magical city of Rio de Janeiro, where they eventually escape their captors and set out to save their friends, Blu and Jewel – two rare macaws and the stars of the hit motion picture, Rio. Angry Birds Rio pairs the physics-based gameplay of the original game with unique twists based on the film.

Angry Birds Rio features:
- Seven fantastic episodes with 210 exciting levels, plus over 40 exciting bonus levels!
- Completely new achievements!
- Special Hidden fruits - discover them all!
- Put your Angry Birds skills to the ultimate test in spectacular boss fights!
For those of you with a WP7 device, Angry Birds Rio, like other Angry Birds titles, is available but is not Xbox LIVE-enabled.
