Rovio has taken its hit Angry Birds Star Wars game to Facebook, with new power ups, tournaments and the usual range of social features.
Key to the game’s Facebook release is the addition of five new levels every week, while the Facebook app also includes three exclusive new power ups: Blaster Droid, Saber Sling and Thermal Detonator. As with Angry Birds Friends, the first Angry Birds app on Facebook, Angry Birds Star Wars lets gamers cooperate with or compete against their friends, sending in-game gifts or battling it out to top the leaderboard.
“It’s all the fun of Angry Birds Star Wars taken to the next level,” said Petri Järvilehto, EVP of games at Rovio. “You get the great Angry Birds Star Wars gameplay for free, plus you can compete against your friends to see who is the ultimate bird-flinger and Jedi Master.”
Angry Birds Star Wars, which sells for anything from 69p for iPhone to £1.99 on Android, shot to the top of app store charts on its release last month.
