Angry Birds on Google+ = WIN

Published by in Gaming, News on August 12th, 2011 | Comments Off

Following a successful mobile run, Angry Birds has come to Google’s new social website, Google+. An ongoing HTML 5 project, it lets users share game vitals with friends, unlock achievements, be placed in leader boards, play special levels unique to Google+ and most importantly, invite people to play. Rovio, the games developer, will continually bring new features based off of the feedback they receive from users.

“Angry Birds for Google+ Games is a great start, but it’s just our first step in social gaming,” said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. “As our fans know, we constantly look for ways to update and innovate our products. We want to delight our users by going way beyond what they were expecting. Social gaming is going to be massive, and we’re very excited about what we have coming up next.”

Angry Birds on Google+ is slowly going to become available for everyone. People currently outside of the games limited trial will have to play the game elsewhere. The game is available for free in HD at the Chrome Store. Currently, you can find it on iOS, webOS, Android, Sony PSP, Sony Playstation 3, Mac OS X, Windows Phone 7, Windows, WebGL and Symbian.  

One question that is begging to be asked is will it turn into a unified experience? Can scores and leader boards eventually coincide with both Google+ and the mobile versions of the game? If Rovio could pull this rabbit out of the hat, it would earn major street cred.
