Eagle-eyed readers will have already taken note of the visit we received last week from two Angry Birds (plus a couple of pigs).
In their unique rendition of ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas,’ the quartet referred to a ‘fifth magic level’ and mentioned some ‘Samsung mobiles’ as well.
Today, all is revealed; t’was all a
pig big publicity stunt for a competition, which sees players of the Chrome version of Angry Birds in with a chance of winning a Samsung Galaxy Note, plus assorted Angry Birds merch.
To be in with a chance of winning, head over to the Chrome Web Store and install the desktop version of Angry Birds. Log in as normal and select today’s challenge from the Season’s Greedings level – you’ll know if it’s the right one as it’ll have a red bird using a Galaxy Note in the window.
To be within a chance of winning, you’ll need to score highly. The top 50 scores will win prizes, with an additional 50 chosen at random.
Top prize is a Samsung Galaxy Note and a selection of 10 Angry Birds merch items. Second prize is a Galaxy Note and 5 large Angry Birds toys. Third prize is a Samsung Galaxy Note and a single large Angry Birds toy.
Fourth to Tenth Prizes are 3 small Angry Birds Toys for each winner, with all other winners will receive 1 Angry Birds Toy.
We’ve had a quick go at the level – which even features little Galaxy Notes as obstacles – and we couldn’t even finish it, because we’re rubbish.
While you’re at it, you could always check out our review of the Galaxy Note and check out our very own Advent Extravaganza. Today’s prize is an iDAPT i1 Eco charger, that’ll charge your Galaxy Note along with your iPhone, Kindle and whatever other gadgets you might have. Plus, all you need to do is enter your email address, so no skill is required!

Update: there’s also this bespoke Bejewled-style game that sees you matching up pigs and birds in groups of three for points. In a nice Samsung tie-in, the Samsung ‘S-Pen’ icon acts as a joker. Enjoyed yourselves? Good. Now get back to work.
