They’ve conquered your iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Android tablets, HP TouchPad, Chrome browser, Facebook and even your BlackBerry Playbook. It seems like nothing is stopping them. Not even the last frontier, Space. Yes, Rovio just announced that the 4th edition of Angry Birds will be called Angry Birds Space.

We don’t have much details about the game yet. We know that NASA and National Geographic will be the launch partner. Players will be lobbing Angry Birds on entirely new planets some with zero gravity. There will be some completely new Angry Birds along with the old classic Angry Birds, now with new special powers.

Angry Birds Space will be launched simultaneously in mobile gaming, animation, retail, and publishing on 22 March 2012. This is going to be the first time anyone did that for a mobile game. In the meantime, Rovio will continue to tease us with more sneaks peek of Angry Bird Space.

Angry Birds is now on Facebook.

The Facebook edition includes exclusive stages and 4 special power ups:
Sling Scope: “Laser targeting” to show the Angry Bird’s flight path.
Bird Quake: Create a mini earthquake
Super Seed: Increase the size of your Angry Bird
King Sling: Increase the power of your sling
So far, my favorite power up is the Sling Scope.
You can use up to 2 power ups per level. Power ups and the Mighty Eagle can be purchased in the store. $1 can get you 20 power ups. Rovio will also give you daily rewards for logging in everyday.
Go check out Angry Birds on Facebook now.

Just when you thought Angry Birds have conquered all platforms, Rovio announced that Angry Birds will be coming to Facebook on 14 February 2012.

You might remember that Angry Birds is already on Chrome browser and Google Plus. So what’s the difference? Well, according to Rovio’s CEO Mikael Hed, the game will have completely new aspects and more collaborative feel.
Rovio is not saying what are the collaborative features yet. From the trailer, it seems like there are a few “power ups” besides the Mighty Eagle. We’ll get more information when the game is launched.
So don’t worry if you don’t have a date this coming Valentines Day. You can always play Angry Birds on Facebook. Who knows, you might land yourself a date in the game.

Stumble upon this video on YouTube. It’s a board game version of the Angry Bird game call Angry Birds: Knock on Wood by Mattel

If you have the time, check out this 10 minutes review of the toy.
I wonder if it is available in Singapore already. The video said that it will be available from May 2011. Feel like getting one for myself. Looks cool. But I’ll most likely use it for table decorations instead of playing the game. The Angry Birds looks too good to fling around.
PS: While searching for more information about this toy, I found some fake version that comes with sound. It seems like they are from Taiwan. Don’t recommend anyone getting the fake version.

After conquering almost all the mobile platforms, Rovio Mobile recently announced Angry Birds for Chrome web browser. The game uses WebGL or Canvas and will be distributed through the Chrome Web Store for use with Google’s Chrome web browser. (And most likely Chrome OS when it is released)

You can run Angry Birds on any WebGL- or Canvas-enabled browser (Safari and FireFox shouldn’t have any problems). But when played on Chrome, it will feature exclusive content, such as exclusive levels. You need to find the Chrome logo (just like the Golden Eggs) to unlock these levels in the Chrome Dimension.

So far, I only managed to find 3 by myself. There are supposed to be 7 of them if I’m not wrong. Oh well, I guess you can Google to find the rest of them.

Have fun playing. Hope your productivity in office don’t drop because of this. Hmmmm….. I wonder how many company will blog this website from now on?
Warning: Spoiler ahead. Don’t scroll down if you don’t want to know the location of the 3 Chrome egg/bomb/logo/whatever you call them.
