Christmas has come early for impatient 'Angry Birds' addicts, because the Mighty Eagle has just landed
in the App Store
. As expected
, the new feathered projectile allows players to skip particularly frustrating levels in one fell swoop, and pick up extra achievements along the way. The catch, however, is that the eagle can only be used once every hour, and it's not free. The basic app update is free, and includes an additional 15, desert-themed, 'Ham Em High' levels. But if you want the eagle, you'll have to pay an extra $0.99 to add it to your arsenal. No one ever said cheating would be cheap.
