Angry Birds officially flies and lands onto social network website Facebook. The game has been available on every variety of mobile and platform and Rovio have featured some unique features to the Facebook version of the game. These include special power-ups to help new players compete against their friends.
“There are four different types of power-ups and they can be accessed via the lightning bolt button at the top of the screen,” the company said. “You can use two power-ups per level. All power-ups have a different effect but ultimately make you more competitive against your friends by making your birds stronger or more accurate or even by shaking the earth itself!”
The game is free to play on the social network at apps.facebook.com/angrybirds/, but the power-ups will cost players $1 for 20 uses.
The Facebook version uses Adobe Systems’ Flash Player 11 with support for 3D graphics included, offering “enhanced special effects like lighting, smoke and explosions running smoothly at 60 frames per second,” Adobe said in a statement.
