Angry Birds for PC free with Intel AppUp

Back in January we told you how Angry Birds had spread its wings and moved onto the big screen, courtesy of its inclusion in the Windows-based Intel AppUp Center.

The app originally cost £4.99, which is a little pricey for a game that retails at just £2.99 for the HD iPad version.

But now, thanks to Currys in the UK or Best Buy in the States, you can get pig-smashing on your laptop for free.

You simply have to sign up to the AppUp Center via a link from either of the electronics retailers. If you've already got the AppUp Center, just uninstall and reinstall using a new sign up.

In the UK, only the first 10,000 people to sign up will get the game for free - and the offer runs until the end of the month.
