The special 45-level Halloween-themed standalone Angry Birds game from Rovio is akin to a crack dealer wrapping up rocks in orange Jack-o-Lantern pouches and throwing in some candy corn.

Angry Birds once had me sitting in the bathroom for an hour and a half. True story. That's how addictive the normal version of the game is. Now Rovio is releasing an Angry Birds Halloween app, mixing spooktacular music and seasonal imagery together with 45 all-new, all-different levels. It sounds like a lovely way to ignore the trick-or-treaters on October 31.

"With Angry Birds Halloween, we wanted to provide our fans with a special treat," said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. "In addition to this new experience, we will also keep providing continuous free updates for Angry Birds."

Angry Birds Halloween should be available shortly on the iTunes App Store, with a price tag of $.99 for standard and $1.99 for the HD version.
