Angry Birds, one of the most popular games for iOS and Android phones, has made it onto the humble desktop computer via the Chrome Web Store. The iPhone app usually costs $1.19 and is the best-selling app in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and many other countries.
Since the release date on the 12th of May, the application has more than 755,000 users and a perfect 5-star rating from players. The game also includes levels only available in the web version.
The game access isn’t restricted to users of the Chrome browser and can be played using any modern browser using a direct link to the game (http://chrome.angrybirds.com/), though this is not mentioned on any official releases.
Rovio Mobile, the Finnish company behind Angry Birds, said ‘we are working on bringing more levels to Chrome, and planning on making the Mighty Eagle available as an in-app purchase option.’
