If you have a Google account (really just means a Gmail account) you can now pick up Angry Birds on the Chrome Web Store. As you may know, this was announced earlier at today’s Google I/O conference. The game is the same game of Angry Birds you’ve been playing on iPhone and Android, but now it’s browser-based and includes some new levels. You will need Google’s Chrome browser to play it.
The game is free as of the time of this writing, no word on whether that will change down the line. It’s only available in SD for now, but it looks like there is an HD version coming.
Here’s what the game’s description says:
"**** Surprise! New web-exclusive Chrome-inspired levels **** UPDATE: Those nasty pigs don't want you to proceed past Level 1-20. We are flying fast and are working on the fix. Stay tuned! The survival of the Angry Birds is at stake. Dish out revenge on the green pigs who stole the Birds‚Äö√Ñ√¥ eggs. Use the unique destructive powers of the Angry Birds to lay waste to the pigs‚Äö√Ñ√¥ fortified castles. Angry Birds features hours of gameplay, challenging physics-based castle demolition, and lots of replay value. Each of the 70 levels requires logic, skill, and brute force to crush the enemy. ‚Äö√Ñ√∫Lemme tell ya, these ain‚Äö√Ñ√¥t no ordinary finches we‚Äö√Ñ√¥re talkin‚Äö√Ñ√¥ about. These here are the Angry Birds, the ones that‚Äö√Ñ√¥s gonna kick you in the ‚Äö√Ñ√≤nads. And they‚Äö√Ñ√¥re the ones on your side. They must be from Galapadapados, or sumptin‚Äö√Ñ√¥.‚Äö√Ñ√π ‚Äö√Ñ√¨ Col. Angus, Bird Expert. Protect wildlife or play Angry Birds!"
Today was a big Chrome OS day at the I/O event, and this is nice little way to show users what’s in store through Google’s browser.
The game can be installed by following this link. Again, you will need the Chrome browser. Any time you want to play the game, you just open a new Chrome tab and it will show you the applications you have installed.
