Angry Birds invade Facebook on Valentine’s Day 2012

By Posted 27 Jan 2012, 12:33

We have some good news for those of you who have been patiently waiting for Angry Birds to arrive on social networking site Facebook. After a considerable delay, we’re pleased to say that on next month’s day of love, the Angry Birds will invade your plans for romance.

Developers Rovio have just confirmed that Angry Birds will finally be available on Facebook next month, and will become available for installation on February 14. The game was originally meant to land last Summer, but Facebook lovers won’t particularly care seeing as a date has now been set for the Angry Birds’ Facebook debut.

The good news is that the Facebook version of Angry Birds will come with one or two interesting additions as well that you may not have seen on your iOS or Android version. For starters, you’ll have Facebook leaderboards so you can annoy the living daylights out of your friends by constantly beating their score and the Facebook version will also come with power-ups as well.

One such power-up will be an instant earthquake that players will be able to bring up at their discretion, although you’ll have to pay to have this pleasure. Other power-ups such as different variety of birds including the mighty eagle can be unlocked during gameplay. According to a report from Joystiq, paid-for power-ups will cost you $0.99 a piece.

We’re glad that Rovio has kept this game a free one for all Facebook users. The option of microtransactions is a good one we feel as Rovio will not run the risk of angering their fanbase by making it a paid-for game from the start which they are well entitled to do.

Will you be trying out Angry Birds on Valentine’s Day and risk taking your frustrations out on your loved one afterwards, or are you getting a bit bored of the franchise now?

    I only ever play it on my Playbook as I don’t know anyone else with an N9 to NFC. Really need a large screen to do the drawback anyway. Where’s that Galaxy Note.??
