Regular readers will know I am an Angry Birds junkie, so I couldn’t resist this latest iteration of the wildly popular game.
Rovio has created a Web App of Angry Birds for Google’s Chrome Browser. All you have to do is point your Chrome browser at the Chrome Web Store and pick up the free copy of Angry Birds complete with some exclusive Chrome inspired levels.
It plays well on the PC screen and the mouse adds a slightly different dimension to the game play but it is still the Angry Birds we know and love. I suspect the idea of describing it as a Chrome exclusive is to attract more people to Google’s Chrome browser. But this is living proof of “Don’t always believe what you read on the internet”
This is a Flash game so if you browse to here you can play it on any flash enabled browser. It plays quite nicely in IE9 on my PC and I suspect it will work just as well in any other Flash capable browser.
I loved playing it on my PC but, I would have liked to see it in wide screen glory. This version plays in a box about a third the size of my 1920 x 1080 screen. Plus it won’t take you long to finish the 63 original levels plus the 7 Chrome inspired levels. Rovio describes this version as a Beta and promises upgrades down the line including the ability to purchase the Mighty Eagle online.
While we are talking about Angry Birds I thought I would share this video with you. It is a cover of the Angry Birds theme created by the popular internet music duo Pomplamoose. I think you will like it.
