Some Angry Birds titles are free on the Windows Phone Store right now

There's some good news for fans of Rovio's super popular Angry Birds franchise, with many titles being available for free right now on Windows Phone.

There's no official info about this, so right now this seems to be a Store error rather than an actual promotion but many Angry Birds games are free right now. This includes the new Angry Birds Star Wars 2, Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Star Wars 1 and the original game.

So far users from all over the world are reporting this is happening but depending on your location you might see some differences. For example some users aren't seeing Rio as being free, while others are able to download the Space version without paying. Finally there are some that say even Amazing Alex, another Rovio title, is currently free in certain locations.

As we mentioned before, this might be just a Store glitch but it does gives fans of the franchise a good opportunity to fill out their Angry Birds collection.

All Angry Birds have been free on Google Play for years. I was confused when iPhone users said they were paying for the games.

They all appear to be $0.99 again in the US store. Wonder if it was a glitch or a short lived bargain. I only added Rio to my collection as I had the others already.

Changed my store settings and installed some of them:

(INDIA) Cut the Rope
(US) Cut the Rope Experiments
(UK) Angry Birds: Star Wars 2
(UK) Angry Birds
(UK) Angry Birds Space
(US) Where's my Water 2

Any other good ones to grab?

Will try and nab Where's My Water but not near any WiFi at the mo and no way to over-ride it

I wonder if they will be able to tell who downloaded for free and stop them playing the game if it IS a bug that is an error?

ls there any way to "purchase" these apps even though I don't have a Windows Phone? It would be nice to have these games once I switch phones or something.

Yes and Pencil Blade and Runtastic Pro as well as well. This seems to be a store glitch coz in past there have been incidents when customers were charged twice for apps they had already purchased. And this is not much different IMO.

After changing regional settings to US and Mexico, it is possible to download everything for free Works on WP8, for WP 7.x users need to change xbox account regional settings

UK: All Angry Birds titles are free and Amazing Alex is free also.

Shame it's only the Windows Phone store, would have liked these on the W8.1 store

On the bright side, at least you can not feel guilty about having to buy it twice if you do get it as a Windows 8 or Xbox one app.

Cool, i need some games on my Windows Phone.
I didn't fancy paying for Angry Birds again for the third time as i've already got them on iOS and Android.

While yes, they may be milking it and the games each time are essentially the same. They're still fun to play when bored.

Weird how they're all just called "Angry Birds" on the WP store. And you have to read the description to see the actual name.

Given I bought them all (except SW2) for Win phone 7, and they expected me to re purchase them for Win Phone 8 (though every other bit of software allowed me to install it for free). I don't feel bad about nabbing them for free.

Though, in the uk rio and seasons still seem to be 79p

Rio and SW2 are the only ones not free in Norway.
