If you haven’t fired up Angry Birds for your iPhone, or you don’t (gasp) have an iPhone, the game is now available for the Chrome Browser. Yeah, I have spent hours playing, just like I spent hours playing Pacman on the Atari and got Pacman thumb and wrist and played Super Mario World for hours on the Ninendo. Double the thumb injuries on Super Mario World. At least the Angry Birds just require a one-finger click.
Angry Birds has the same lame-ass addictiveness that marked the others. Stupid “characters” and stupid “music” with a “stupid” goal. (I guess there is a goal for Angry Birds? Or no? Meh.)
Here’s what I have learned about Angry Birds in my first hours of play:
- The little purple birds will split into three if you click when they are in flight.
- The triangle birds will fly straight and fast if you click when they are flying.
- The egg birds are useful after they drop their egg bomb if you time it just right.
- The big black ball birds explode when you click OR will explode after they turn red.
Yes, cupcakes and plushies and tee shirts and all kinds of crap will be flooding the store shelves soon.
There’s a bunch of other stuff in Angry Birds that I haven’t gotten to yet: diamonds, eggs, treasure chests, and what the hell is this floating Chrome logo supposed to signify? I blew it up once and didn’t get squat. Is this some kind of signal that I need to get. away. from. the. computer?

Don’t say I didn’t warn you about the addictiveness – and one question: Do you try for the best score at each screen or are you more challenged by racking up many different levels.
Here’s the life size version – complete with Exploding Pigs. Can a Disney World theme park be far behind?
Oh, and yes, I bought a Wii because of the Tiger Woods Masters 2012 game and the New. Low. Price. It’s my retirement gift to myself.
