Sneak peek at new 'Rio' level of 'Angry Birds' -- EXCLUSIVE

Credit: Rovio/Fox

Here’s a first look at the hidden level for the game Angry Birds, which can be accessed during Sunday’s Super Bowl through a code found within a movie commercial. (Guess which one.)

Full details can be found here, but for now these are the broad strokes …

… with apologies to Duran Duran:

Moving fast through the Super Bowl, babe, you’ll find birds of paradise.
Angry Birds make you smile, you’ll suppose it’s very nice.
Just freeze the ad and grab the code, then enter it into the game
You’ll find a special level, built around a movie name.

That movie’s Rio, it’s about escapee birds.
Not angry ones, really, these ones speak with human words.
They’re endangered squabblers with affection underneath,
Rio, Rio opens on April 15th.

    I am really starting to feel left out having never played this silly looking game. Is it really deserving of all the buzz?

    • Nathan

      It’s a really addicting game, great way to pass the time waiting for the elevator or your girlfriend to finish trying on clothes. For 99 cents, quite a deal.

        A while back (in another trehad), Brent asked if I had any constructive tips or advice for our users. I don’t have much to offer for the other users, but since I’m heavily involved in web development on the editorial side, I can at least offer some advice to CBG’s editorial staff in the way of some questions that would go a long way to helping you identify the strengths and weaknesses of this website.* How much revenue is being generated from your website (banner ads, etc.)? Are you monetizing other areas of your online areas (e.g., e-newsletters, podcasts, videos)?* Do you sell products from your website? If so, are revenues up or down compared to previous months/years?* Are you getting regular online reports from your web team (e.g., Omniture reports)? If not, why not?* Why do visitors come to your site? Why does your site exist, and what do you offer on your website that your visitors cannot receive from the print magazine, or from other websites?* How much traffic (page views, unique visitors, total visits) are you getting on a monthly basis? * How is this traffic trending compared to last month? How is it trending compared to last year?* What is the average amount of time a visitor spends with your website? Is this amount increasing or decreasing month over month/year over year?* What was your best month in the past year/two years?* What are your most popular pages for the past month/past year? How does this compare to previous months/years?* Who are your most popular writers/columnists/contributors to the website? How often are they posting new content? Do you have a budget or payment plan that encourages/incentivizes your top contributors to write frequently? Are you actively soliciting content from new writers as well?* Do you have areas of your website that have not been updated in many months? If so, either update them or consider phasing them out. If your print columnists are not contributing to the website, offer them incentives to do so or else shut down those online areas.* Where are your visitors coming from? Are they mostly U.S. based? What percentage of your traffic comes from overseas? Do you have a strategy to attract more traffic from overseas?* Are you familiar with other websites and what features those other sites have? Do you regularly contact other editors to learn best practices, as well as strategies on how to ensure CBGxtra’s web development is made a priority within the corporate hierarchy? * What do you do better on your website than your competitors do, and vice versa?* What are your top three priorities for the website? What would you like the website to look like six months from now? Do you have sufficient resources and staffing to make those priorities a reality?

      MartaTake some puzzle peices. Paint them different Christmas Colors. Glue them together to look like a Christmas wreath. Glue a bow and an ornament hook to them, and hang them on your Christmas tree. They look very pretty! You can also give them to your friends or family members as agift.
