Angry Birds Journey from mobiles to PC
The game Angry Birds took the whole touch-screen and gaming industry by storm. Since its debut on the Google Android System, it has sold an approximate of 50 million copies. Afterwards, Rovio Mobile, the company behind the game Angry Birds, decided to develop the game for iOS or for the product of Apple Inc. like the iPod Touch, iPad, also it was made available to some phones made by Nokia, whose operating system is Symbian.
And since its acclaim due to its release in the iPad, the company decided to release the said game for the PC, or Computer. And by December 10, 2010, the game Angry Birds for PC was released. For a few weeks, it was available for a free download through an app store or through Intel’s AppUp Store. After 2-3 months, Rovio Mobile then decided to impose the pay and play system. That meant that the user must first pay a meager $4.99 USD to have the full version already. The game is still being offered, but now a certain player must pay before having the game.
Angry Birds on PC – gameplot and how to play
The game elements are basically the same. From menu, to gameplay and system, it’s all similar to the other platforms like those of the Android and Mac versions. The only thing is that, the user controls the sling thrower not by fingers, but by the mouse.
As usual, gameplay is this simple: use the slingshot to fire the angry birds to the big green hogs over the side, either killing them or trampling them with the structure surrounding the pigs.
Angry Birds for Windows PC
The best part of having the game is the usual “golden eggs” which are somewhat the secret levels of the game. Another thing to note is the resources that it only occupies and takes when playing. An old computer can support such a low and resource-friendly program like this. Nonetheless, the only thing that bothers much is that the game is only available on Windows XP and Windows 7 Operating Systems, which means other OS running like Linux, Ubuntu, or Free DOS, even the highly criticized Windows Vista cannot support such a game.
Although not capable of handling such recent operating systems, the fact that it works on Windows platform is good enough. Though much Vista users may want to try this game. A good thing Windows XP though, since it’s compatibility is highly considered.
In general, the PC version of Angry Birds is quite appreciated by people, but most users still prefer playing the game on-touch experience, the feel and thrill when using a touch-capable handheld device gives the feeling of enthusiasm when trying to play this game. As what they say that PC’s and Touch Devices are too different, this game says it so. Angry birds may be for Android, iPod, iPad, but cellphones and PC can have a different perspective in playing games. The trick also when it comes to playing games like these on PC’s is the ability to learn and control the mouse effectively and efficiently.
