Angry Birds Lite Beta now in the Market

We’ve known for two months that the crazy popular iPhone game, Angry Birds, was on its way to Android, and today is the the big day! Well, today is the big day for a “Lite Beta” version, anyway. Initially, Rovio Mobile had intended a private beta for the app, but response was so overwhelming that the dev company decided to make it available to all of us.

The 11.1MB download challenges the player to launch a host of birds that are capable of various attacks through the air via slingshot at barricaded pigs; the monsters that stole the birds’ eggs. Based on my experience with the iPhone version, I can say that the graphics are stellar, the sound effects are hilarious, and the gameplay is addictive. When you search the Market for “Angry Birds,” be sure to grab the app from Rovio Mobile, as someone else has posted an impostor.

Testing with the EVO 4G, the app crashes for me after the splash screen. Anyone else having luck?



Rovio’s websites are down at the time of this writing.
