Angry Birds Roost on Android

Rovio released Angry Birds for the Android platform this week, and the game is free to download and play.

Angry Birds lets players take control of a flock of birds that are out to get revenge on hungry green pigs who have stolen their eggs. Using a slingshot mechanism, players shoot these birds at the pigs and their odd constructions. The Android version of the game features 150 levels.

Angry Birds runs on second-generation Android devices with Android platform 1.6 or later and need to support OpenGL ES 2.0. Angry Birds Android features mobile advertising powered by AdMob. A future update to the game offers the option to purchase the full version and opt out of advertisements.

The game is available exclusively through GetJar. It will soon be available on the Android Market and Motorola SHOP4APPS, free of charge.

Originally released on iPhone, Angry Birds has been downloaded more than 7 million times, according to Rovio. The free version of the game has been installed over 13 million times.
