Angry Birds Friends Soars Onto Facebook

By David Cohen 

Rovio, developer of Angry Birds, announced that Angry Birds Friends is out of beta and available for play on Facebook.

Angry Birds Friends offers game players new weekly tournaments, new weekly levels, and more ways to earn power-ups, along with traditional Angry Birds features such as share and play, power-ups, and daily rewards.

Rovio said the game launched with four new levels that are exclusively in tournament-mode, with new levels to be added weekly, and the developer added in a post on its blog:

Think you’re the best Angry Birds player around? Prove it with new weekly tournaments! Every week, you have from Monday to Sunday to compete with your friends on four different levels. The pig-popper with the best overall score will earn a gold trophy, with silver and bronze for second and third place. Unlike crowns, trophies are yours forever! How many can you collect?

In addition to the daily rewards you already get, you can now earn power-ups through tournament mode. Earn three power-ups bundles for a gold trophy, two for silver, and one for bronze. You also get a power-up for each tournament level you play, and one for participating in the tournament!
