Were you just thinking; “I think I need more Angry Birds in my life?” I hope so, because that’s exactly what you’re getting.
Angry Birds developer Rovio recently announced that their golden goose of a game is being adapted for Facebook. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last year, you know that Angry Birds is the undisputed heavyweight champion of the mobile gaming universe, with over 100 million downloads worldwide.
Currently, there’s no word on what changes, if any, will be made for the Facebook version. There will have to be a new control setup, and most likely there will be leaderboards for players to compare their scores with the rest of their friends list. Realistically, the Facebook version will be a sizable chunk of the original game, which will act as a very large demo/ad for the many seasonal and sponsored versions of the game. At the moment, upcoming versions include a St. Patrick’s Day-themed expansion and a version of the game based on the animated film, Rio.
Again, no word on when Angry Birds on Facebook will be actually go live. In the meantime, Angry Birds: St Patrick’s Day will be almost certainly be on the App Store this week, since St Patty’s is a little more than a week away.
