What better way to play the hit multi-platform strategy game Angry Birds than in the world’s largest social networking site Facebook? Since Angry Birds was released last December 2009 by the game developer Rovio Mobile, more than 500 million copies of the game were sold in the App Store of Apple. However, during the time, the game was designed only to be compatible with Apple’s operating system, and so it was only available to play in an iPad or iPhone.
Combine this outstanding and skyrocketing numbers with Facebook’s 500 or more million users and the game is sure to hit a billion in a snap. And thanks to the unexpected success of Angry Birds, the game developers have quickly turned into a gaming powerhouse in only a few months. In fact, according to CMO Peter Vesterbacka, Rovio Mobile is currently worth over $1 billion.
Hitting the social networking site this 2012, Angry Birds will be featuring additional social components to make the gaming experience more unique and thrilling for all Facebook users. You can now use brand new power ups to supercharge the birds and hit pigs faster and in cooler fashion than what you’ve been used to in your iPad or iPhone. There are also exclusive levels that are available for the Facebook game platform so that you have more choices and better enjoyment. And since the game is multi-platform, you can play and battle against your friend’s high scores in an exhilarating and intense competition that will earn you the priceless golden crowns.
The game is to be released in February 14, making Valentines Day a much more awaited for event than simply going out on a date. You can easily download the game from Facebook free of charge and without any hassling subscriptions or requirements whatsoever, just pure entertainment and pig-popping action at its best.
If you haven’t played the game ever and don’t know anything about it, you’ll be surprised of the simplicity yet excitement that Angry Birds offer. Aside from the cute birds flying hundreds of feet in the hopes of hitting some green colored pigs placed cleverly and strategically across the field, the game is a lot fun considering that you’ll have to think of a way to best hit the pigs in such a way that they’ll all be knocked down. On every level, the placements of the pigs vary and get difficult as the level progresses. This makes it much more exciting to play Angry Birds and now that it’s on Facebook, you won’t have to borrow your friend’s iPad or iPhone just to experience the fun.
