For quite some time now I have read countless blog posts, Twitter updates and Facebook posts about how beloved “Angry Birds” has become with, well, pretty much everyone. Since its initial release for Apple’s iOS, the game has been played by over 12 million users and just two days ago, it was introduced to a whole new, even wider audience when Google Chrome released the game free for their browser.
I hadn’t played “Angry Birds” before it was made available by Google Chrome, but as soon as I heard the news of it now being browser-supported, I decided to give it a whirl. Millions of people have been really into the game for years now, so I went into it, admittedly, expecting to see what all the fuss was about and get out.
Two days later, I am still addicted to this game which entails using birds, each type with their own unique destruction power, used to make intricate buildings come crashing down in order to destroy little green pigs who have stolen the birds’ eggs. With over 70 different levels, “Angry Birds” provides an amazing amount of playing time, especially if you’re a little obsessive compulsive, like myself, and absolutely need to get three stars on every level. Yes, I am one of those people.
“Angry Birds” for Google Chrome is still in beta, but they are diligently working on fixing some minor bugs you’ll probably run into throughout the game at one point or another. Luckily, you won’t experience them for long.
If you’ve never played this game, but have been told by several people just how fun and, yes, addicting it is, and want to experience it for yourself, or if you just want to another platform to experience the structure demolition using several different varieties of ridiculously cute birds who make equally cute sounds, download Google Chrome (if you don’t have it installed already) and download this app.
