With more than 300 million Angry Birds game downloads, Rovio expands to new social platform.
Espoo, Finland Â August 11, 2011 Â Angry Birds on Google+ is an ongoing HTML 5 project that lets users share game updates with friends, participate in leaderboards, brag about their achievements, unlock special social levels, and invite people to play. Following its successful mobile gaming strategy, Rovio will continually bring in exciting new features based on user feedback.
The more than 10 million people already on Google+ can now enjoy Angry Birds as a social experience. By playing with everyone from best friends to grandmothers, users can forge new bonds by popping some pigs together on the new social network.
