Angry Birds is a game that has seen extreme popularity among mobile users. The game is now moving to a browser based format. Users can play as soon as they arrive on the Angry Birds homepage. The game is based on battles between the birds and the green pigs. The pigs steal the bird’s eggs, and usually wind up sitting in precarious positions near loosely stacked objects. The player’s job is to launch the birds (using a sling shot) so that they hit the stacked objects and take out the green pigs. The user’s score is based on how much damage each bird does. The user is given a limited number of birds per turn, but can restart a level after failing. The browse based game is currently available in a standard and HD version. A few simple settings are also available that allow the user to turn of the sound or follow Angry Birds on Facebook or Twitter.Show more screenshots »
Angry Birds was developed by the Finland-based video game company Rovio. It was released for the iPod and iPhone with a version added for Android users as well. Since it was originally released, Angry Birds has sold more than 6.5 million copies. The game is currently working its way to the internet. The browser version is still in beta, but proves to be very promising as the mobile users find yet another way to enjoy it.
Angry Birds is unique because of the game design and overall appeal. The sound effects and game art are both amusing and the game play is very engaging. Users can easily become addicted to launching little angry birds at green pigs. The game features original characters and concepts and became wildly popular among mobile phone users.
Angry Birds uses cartoon style graphics that blend well with the humorous concept behind the game. The pigs seem to have a somewhat sickly, vacant stare while the birds glare under furrowed brows. The game mechanics are easy to master, simply pull back the sling shot strap and let the birds fly. The only difference between the web-based version and the mobile version is that the mouse must instead be used instead of the player’s finger to launch the birds.
Newcomers to the Angry Birds website can begin playing right away. There is no purchase required or log in needed to get started. It should be noted that Angry Birds for the web is still in a beta status, so it is possible that this could change later on. For now, anyone can jump right in and start launching birds whenever they like without a subscription or account.
Angry Birds is currently available to all internet users for free. There are no subscription fees or other charges for playing. Users are not asked to provide any personal information, either. Of course the game is still in beta so it is possible that this could change once it is officially released. For the time being, there is no further information regarding a subscription fee or other payment requirement.
Angry Birds is a fun, engaging game that almost anyone can enjoy. The game mechanics are relatively simple, making it a game that works with many age groups. Anyone who wants to find a way to pass the time can do so by visiting the Angry Birds website.
