Angry Birds, the successful game for platforms like iOS and Android, has been implemented for Facebook as well since Valentine’s Day. 14 February 2012 introduced an Angry Birds game for Facebook, a new source of entertainment for all the 800 million users.
Alongside the new release of Angry Birds for Facebook, the game itself has been updated, with new features being available in the Facebook version of Angry Birds. The new features of Facebook’s Angry Birds include power-ups, social components and levels that can be only played on the Facebook version of Angry Birds.
Most users that are familiar with Angry Birds complained about the overall social experience of the game, given that this addictive game had no social component in its design. The only way to compete against others in Angry Birds was to screenshot a high score and compare it with other users’ scores. Thanks to Facebook’s Angry Birds, this version of the game offers that needed social component, using a server to save all the user data, such as high scores.
With the new Facebook Angry Birds (released on February 14th, 2012 as a Valentine’s Day gift) users can compete against each other for the biggest high score. Also, users can pick up bronze, silver or gold crowns for each of the top three scores throughout the levels of Angry Birds. As for another social component of Facebook’s Angry Birds, users are able to offer gifts to their friends in the form of power-ups that can help the gameplay experience (those power-ups are quite similar to the energy bags in Tetris Battle).
In an attempt to add to the Facebook Angry Birds content, developers implemented in this version of the game new exclusive Facebook levels and a bunch of new power-ups to help users in-game, such as: King Sling, Sling Scope, Super Seeds and Birdquake.
It is expected from Facebook’s Angry Birds to reach equal or more success compared to the one it had on platforms like iOS or Android. Given all the new features and the amount of people that can play Angry Birds on Facebook, this new platform is probably the best one for an addictive game such as Angry Birds.
