Our much-loved, enraged avians are flocking to Facebook Instant Games. Fans of the multi-billion downloaded Angry Birds mobile games can hit up a friend on Messenger and Facebook for a frantic game of one-on-one slingshotting mayhem.
“With Instant Games, we want to give players new ways to enjoy the games they love while staying true to what has made iconic franchises beloved for so many years,” said Leo Olebe, Global Director, Games Partnerships at Facebook. “Rovio and the development team at CoolGames have blended a perfect mix of new features like asynchronous multiplayer with classic Angry Birds gameplay. We are thrilled to welcome one of the most popular mobile game franchises of all time to the Facebook Instant Games platform.”
With Angry Birds on Messenger and Facebook, players can instantly start a game with anyone from their friends list. Both players battle it out on the same playing field populated with red- and blue-capped pigs. The first player to pop all of their opponent’s pigs in red caps wins! Choose a bird to fling and let the feathers fly. Once you’re done, it’s your friend’s turn to return fire. Of course, there is a selection of power-ups to help along the way. Gain the edge over your opponent by dropping TNT, turning blocks to ice, and more.
‘We are excited to launch Angry Birds on the Instant Games platform,‘’ noted Heini Kaihu, Head of Puzzle studio at Rovio. ”The Instant Games version of Angry Birds, featuring asynchronous multiplayer, is a brand new take on one of the most successful and loved mobile games of all time.
