New Angry Birds adventure that requires a bit of help

Nokia has announced that an exclusive new Angry Birds game is set to launch which will require using NFC (Near Field Communication) to access new levels.

Set to be previewed at the WIMA conference this week, Angry Birds Free with Magic includes twenty levels of pig-smashing carnage, but just five of the levels can be completed as you would do normally.

To enjoy more of the action, you'll need to find someone with a NFC supported phone to unlock another five levels. To access the next five levels you'll need to find someone else again with a NFC-enabled phone and the same for the last five levels.

Alternatively if you don't fancy bumping handsets, NFC tags which could be embedded in specific items will also extend your Angry Birds Magic gaming.

Angry Birds Magic is set to be pre-installed in the Nokia C7 along with the arrival of the Symbian Anna update. Future Nokia handset releases in 2011 with NFC support will also get to play. Rovio says it is also working on bringing a full version of the game which will be available through the Ovi Store.
