Angry Birds Rio has only just managed to get out of the front door, but Rovio had another secret weapon up their sleeves. The company has just launched Angry Birds for the Google Chrome browser – it’s available to download now and has exclusive content not contained in the mobile versions.
This release has definitely slipped under the radar somewhat, and you’ll be pleased to know that the game is free to download, although you can still purchase extra content via microtransactions.
You can pick up your copy now from the Google Chrome Web Store here. This version will feature some ‘Chrome-inspired’ levels, while you’ll also be able to use ‘Chome Bombs’ in-game. Paid content sees the return of the mighty eagle, although we have a feeling that most of you will see no need to use this.
We’ve included a video below which shows off some gameplay from the Chrome version. As you can see, the levels are the same minus the new Chrome levels, but it’s free so you can’t really complain here.
Download it now and let us know how you get on. On an important note, it seems like you can’t get past level 20 at the moment. Google states they are working on a quick fix, so we’ll update this when that happens. Can any of you confirm this bug?
