Angry Birds turn into love birds as Rovio creates custom-made level to help fan propose to his girlfriend

Angry Birds-obsessed Ben Levi decided to propose to his girlfriend Melissa Swift in an unusual way: with a little help from game maker Rovio.

In a blog, Rovio said: "A while ago a guy named Ben got in touch with an unusual request. He wanted to pop the big question to his long-term girlfriend Mel through Angry Birds! We jumped at the chance to bring these lovebirds together, and started building a custom-made level that featured Ben’s marriage proposal."

Rovio created Angry Birds Friends, which was released yesterday, and Levi suggested that his girlfriend begin playing the new game.

On completing the first two levels and reaching the third, the words ‘marry me Mel’ appeared on the screen. She said yes.

Rovio has said that the in-game proposal can be seen for a limited time on the Angry Birds Friends tournament.
