Angry Birds Rio has reached version 1.1.0 today, delivering 30 all-new levels in the latest episodic update - Beach Volley.
As promised earlier this year, Angry Birds Rio fans will ‘live off’ episodic updates throughout 2011.
Beach Volley marks the first one since March 22, when the game launched containing two episodes with a total of 60 levels. Now there’s 90 of them, plus bonus levels and other neat stuff.
Angry Birds Rio features a different storyline where the original Angry Birds are kidnapped and taken to Rio de Janeiro.
The birds eventually escape and set out to save Blu and Jewel – two rare macaws who also happen to be their friends. They show up from time to time in certain levels throughout Angry Birds Rio. Blu and Jewel are said to be the stars of the upcoming film, Rio.
Unlike the original Angry Birds, or the Angry Birds Seasons installment, Rio also has boss fights. The boss fight in the first version, for example, is the first level to feature Blu and Jewel as ‘throwable’ birds.
Angry Birds Rio is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 3.0 or later.

Earlier this week Google announced a free version of Angry Birds for Google Chrome users.

Although advertised as for-Chrome, the web-based game appears to be compatible with Apple’s own Safari web browser, as well as with Mozilla’s Firefox on both Mac and Windows computers.
