The popular iPhone/Android app Angry Birds has arrived on Facebook in a free version that can be played on internet browsers. The popular mobile device game has arrived on the biggest social networking website with some new levels exclusive to Facebook, virtual prizes and the ability to send free gifts to your friends and compete for high scores. The Facebook version of Angry Birds also features four new power-ups beyond the game’s famous Mighty Eagle that lets you win difficult levels with just one click. The Facebook version of the game runs on Flash Player 11 supporting 3-D graphics for enhanced lighting, smoke, and explosions.
Fans were able to test the new Angry Birds Facebook app online yesterday morning ahead of its official global launch in Jakarta, the world’s most Facebook-connected city.
“With the great success of the Angry Birds game on smartphone platforms, Rovio intends to reach more fans and be on every screen and every platform,” Rovio Asia senior vice president Henri Holm said in a statement.
“Therefore, the company developed Angry Birds on Facebook to reach more than 800 million Facebook users worldwide.”
In the game, players fling colourful and grumpy wingless birds from a slingshot into smarmy egg-stealing pigs.
Google plus social network users already playing Angry birds on the internet since August last year.
