Angry Birds celebrates is fifth birthday this week by paying tribute to its fans with the release of an exclusive Angry Birds episode, Play the Next Level.

With 30 new levels created by fans, Play the Next Level is the result of a social media competition hosted by Rovio and its partners.

‘The new Angry Birds Play the Next Level episode would not have been possible without the support of Rovio’s friends and partners who have played a key role in Angry Birds’ five year story,’ read a statement from the firm.

“When we saw the first concept image for Angry Birds back n December 2009, there was a strong feeling that this was an idea that would take flight – but we couldn’t have dreamt of its scale,” said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio.

“In the past five years Angry Birds has grown in to one of the most recognised brands in the world, and Rovio has grown in to a global entertainment company producing games, books, animations, theme parks and many other products including a feature film due out in July of 2016.”
