    I got addicted to the Birds last month. I had the same reaction when I saw that tweet.

    I too feel your pain. And yes, I am taking the three-star challenge.

    I’m a late-comer to this game. The three-star challenge is going to hurt!

    In the midst of the three-star challenge.

    I don’t even own and iPod / iPad.

  5. Mattazuma says:

    Yeah, I’m on the three star challenge as well.

    Friends and never-mets,
    I am comforted to have found others with this bird burden, but I am saddened to have found you all after completing the entire AB with 3 stars on every screen. Such is my love and suffering through these weeks. I really did enjoy the difficulty of the 3 stars and believe me some levels are bastardly to get the coveted 3 star ranking. But I am here to ask and remind you that all I have to show for my time is a handful of golden eggs… And a deeper addiction than I would wish upon anyone. Coming soon is just not soon enough for me.

    I’m working on the 3 star challenge. I want the golden eggs!

    If Angry Birds is wrong I don’t want to be right.

    Right now I can only get small “fixes” of AB. I don’t own an iphone and can only play when I “borrow” my sister’s phone. But I have heard that it will soon be available for Andriod phone and then I can be fully addicted!

  12. DerSmit says:

    I too am up way too late into the wee morning hours. Oh, I’ve gotten three stars on all available stages, but I’m working on my points to reach 100% of the Crystal Achievements. Episode 2 score – done! Episodes 1 & 3 – so close!

  13. Soooooo much better on the iPad.

  14. jjok says:

    You suck. Thanks a lot for the introduction, jerk… I can’t stop.

  15. Shell says:

    I have all levels completed, 3 stars in all & all golden eggs so far. Am an angry birds junkie 2 & can’t w8 for the next levels. The only thing is I will probably need a new iPhone battery! Killed my current 1 trying 4 all 3 stars in all levels, but it was SO worth it. πŸ™‚

  16. Slainte says:

    I’ve no idea why the authors don’t release a level editor, get their legions of fans to keep generating content for free… hmm I suppose because there’s going to be more than the odd idiot who’ll try to submit layouts that resemble reproductive organs.

  17. Chase says:

    Already got 3 stars on all of them

  18. Astin says:

    What is this Angry Birds?

  19. Da Goddess says:

    I’m so glad I’ve only graduated to texting on my phone. These “apps” sound unsafe for those of us with addictive personalities.

    Gotta run. Pogo’s Balloon Bounce is calling my name!
