Angry Birds developer Rovio first introduced the Mighty Eagle – which lets you pay 59p to have a giant eagle swoop down and kill all the pigs in a given stage - back in September. The eagle has since landed on Android, but iPhone owners have had to wait, contenting themselves instead with the episodic Angry Birds Seasons.

Guess what. It's now on iPhone. That's what this story is about.

The 1.5.0 Angry Birds iPhone update also brings with it a new theme, called Frontier Badlands, which you may have already encountered if you own Angry Birds HD. The theme features 15 all-new levels.

And, of course, there's a new Golden Egg to discover. Angry Birds, complete with the Ham 'Em High update and all of the others that have gone before, is available now on the App Store for 59p / 99c.
