Angry Birds pecks its way on to the PC via Intel's app store for netbooks

Movie And TV Show Recommendation Engine Jinni Raises $5 Million

Angry Birds, the wildly popular game on a raft of smartphones, has made its way to the PC.

Sometime overnight a version for Windows XP/7 became available via Intel’s AppUp store, which specifically targets Netbooks.

The app costs $9.99/£5.99/€7.99, although for a limited time gamers can get in on the action for $4.99. The choice to launch on Intel’s desktop app store, which very much borrows from the smartphone model of ‘on-deck’ offerings, is also interesting in light of Apple’s own pending Mac store. Angry Birds has established itself as an iPhone classic so we’ll likely see it fly off the shelves (pun intended) if or when it lands (sorry, again) on Macbooks and the like.

As for the game itself, it stays true to its roots: Once again “the survival of the Angry Birds is at stake”, packing in 195 levels and hours of gameplay, says its maker Finland-based Rovio Mobile. In addition, those that shell out for the game can expect free updates and additional levels in the future, along with a few unique twists not found in the mobile version.

    these “app stores” are getting ridiculous


      Where can I find cheap PC software?

      A question which occupies most computer users in these hard times of recession. had some great tips on where and how to buy cheap software:
      Microsoft is offering university students the chance to buy up its software super-cheap Until 15 June 2010. It’s possible to get its new Windows 7 operating system for £30 (2 versions available), and its Office 2007 Ultimate package for £38.95.
      Considering Windows 7 has an official retail price of around £250, and Office 2007 Ultimate’s around £600, this ain’t bad at all.’’

      If for most of you the time has run out, no worries, there is another website,
      a little gem really: which has great deals on Microsoft products.
      For eg: Windows 7 Professional is £68.48 + free delivery. No Vat is charged either.
      MS Office 2007 is £52.48 and MS Office Professional 2010 £88.98.
      Windows 7 Ultimate at £72.98.
      The good thing about this site is; what you see is what you get.
      No hidden extra’s or charges and that’s quite refreshing.

      This small website, unheard of previously certainly beats some of the big players in game.

    no, Just to think everyone believes Apple came up with the app store idea first LOL!

    I would have thought Intel would have supported Steam since it has such an array of titles and is multi-OS supported

    I really like Pictureka which i understand is made by the same company as Angry Birds. I think it would be much better on a bigger screen than the iPhone .

    I’m going to pay what for a game I can get on my phone for free?

  • Angry Birds בגרסה ראשונה ל-PC

    […] למרות שהוא מיועד למשחק במחשבי נטבוק בעלי מסך 10 אינצ' ומעבד דל הספק, אין מניע כי הוא יעבוד על מחשב שולחני וכבר רצות גרסאות של המשחק באתרי ההורדות השונים. כדי להוריד את המשחק, יש להוריד תחילה את חנות האפליקציות של אינטל ולאחר מכן תוכלו להוריד ולשחק. יחד עם זאת, השיקה Rovio בחנות האפליקציות של מחשבי MAC, ה-Mac App Store שהוכרזה היום, את הגרסה המותאמת למחשבים אלה שגם שם הוא נמכר במחיר זהה למחיר בחנות אינטל.

    […] Skobbler, best known for its free sat-nav app for iPhone, has entered the world of gaming. GeoBrain for iPhone and iPad is described as “a fun yet educational game experience that tests and trains geo-knowledge.” Basically, you spin a giant globe and answer questions to demonstrate your knowledge of the world. Fun, huh? OK, it’s probably no Angry Birds. […]
