Is there a way to disable the Mighty Eagle icon?

The new (today!) version of Angry Birds (at least on iPhone) offers the help of a new character: the Mighty Eagle.

If you fail twice a level, the Mighty Eagle icon appears close to the Pause icon.
Clicking on that ME icon brings the Apple payment screen, so that you can get the Mighty Eagle to help you on that level (never tried, but seemingly it crashes the whole pigs construction and – I guess – you get a 3 stars by giving 0.99 cents).

The things is, to get 3 stars by playing normally, requires to reload the level a number of times! Making that ME icon to appear all the time, and I don’t want to pay – cheat – in order to get the 3 stars…

Question: Is there a way to prevent that Mighty Eagle icon to appear on the screen?

It takes quite some place, and the screen is already pretty busy…
And while I don’t intend to use that ME option, the icon is anyway available from the Pause / Restart screen.


This web page explains how the Mighty Eagle works.

The salient points are:

  • You will not receive any stars or points from using the Mighty Eagle – your performance is considered in relation to a completely separate ‘Eagle Score’
  • It’s not a one-use item – once you purchase the Mighty Eagle you will have permanent access to it. However you can only use it once per hour on levels that you haven’t beaten yet.

So you could purchase the Mighty Eagle and then use it (without receiving any points or stars and thus not cheating), and the icon would presumably not be available on that level, or any subsequent unlocked levels for the next hour.

Note – I haven’t purchased it myself, but after reading about it there’s a strong possibility I will!
