Hey guys! It's your costarrican friend Carlos, aka Kaliaticus, with Angry Birds news. I just installed the latest update, and it's pretty badass. Now you can level your Autobirds and Deceptihogs to level 15. Also, what we've been waiting: you can unlock Arcee and Airachnid. It's got a new way to customize your bots and cons with "materials", but I'm not sure yet of how this works.
