Angry Birds Beta Coming this Friday


Angry Birds…I don’t quite get the hype (maybe that is because I have never had the opportunity to play it), but it is coming to Android. Before it can get an official release, however, it must go through its beta-testing rounds. This is where the good news comes in for any readers who have been itching to try the game. An e-mail was sent out today informing that all those who sign-up at the Angry Birds site will be invited to a “massive beta test” of the game come this Friday.

Now you are probably asking, where do I sign up? Do it, and let us know how it goes once the test build gets out. (Also, they are apparently considering a movie and/or TV version of the game in case playing it on your phone doesn’t get you your fix.)

  • Sprint EVO Guy

    Never even heard of it until right now

    Kevin, where have you been? Even an Android Phan like you must surely have been exposed to an iPhone or iPod Touch, if not an iPad. This is a great game, and bringing it to Android is a great thing for Android.

  • Andrew

    Really, Kevin…? Really? This is going to be epic for Android.

  • Eloquence

    Can’t wait! Angry birds rocked on the iPhone — it’s ultimate time-waster!! :)

  • DEV!

  • Craz

    SWEET! I’ve been waiting for this since I switched to Android. Only thing that iPhone had that Android didn’t was Angry Birds. Now iPhone has nothing over Android!!!

  • timmyjoe42

    Played this on a buddy’s iPhone and loved it. I would pay cash for this game.

  • Justin

    so can I get my old iphone license transferred to my new android phone?

  • Oaklandsharksfan

    Just an fyi. Saying that you don’t understand the hype for something that you have never tried isn’t a very good way to start an article. Stoked for angry birds personally.

  • Maj

    i signed up to them long time ago but still didnt get any email.
    Anyway, i cant wait for this.

  • Eric

    I played it on my friends Iphone for about 3 hours, easily the most addicting game i have played in awhile, which says something since i own just about every video game console in existence and play PC games.

  • Snarky30

    This game is the reason my iPod Touch battery is always dead. Love it! Kind of like Crush the Castle only with Pigs and Birds. Its win win!

  • The Sherlock

    About time. Yes you need to play it (have it on ipod touch).

    There is a fake Angry Birds on the market now and it looks like it blows. Do not get that way. Make sure you get the right one.

  • TheMobileWorx

    Wow, someone please explain why this game has such a crack addiction factor!

  • stephen

    Used to play this all the time on my touch, its so much fun lol this will be a serious step up for Android gaming

  • theineffablebob

    I hope the aspect ratio is proper for 854×480 phones.

  • ari-free

    I don’t get the hype either. Looks like any other free 2D flash game.

  • Mensahwatts

    I have to say it sounds like kiddy game… But with all the hype about it I will give it a try…maybe its not kiddy at all

  • IPhone 4 battery

    I am waiting for this game to be out as I really want to play this game..

  • Jodiuh

    Saw a youtube of this, looks AWESOME!

  • DroidRiffic

    this is the most exciting news I’ve come across since the birth of my first child!

  • TF

    Just go youtube it… I thought it was stupid myself, with a name like that, til I played it….. I thought the same thing of Plants vs Zombies as well. I was wrong on both accounts.

  • MillhouseVanHover

  • DroidRiffic

    @Millhouse, what do you mean, “u ppl?”

  • wayneDroid

    @DroidRiffic, i think the troll has learning difficulties and is trying to say “you people” as opposed to “u ppl?”

    cant wait to get this on my droid XD
