Angry Birds, which is a smash hit game on iPhone OS, arrived as a public beta to Android last Friday. According to the developers, the game sold 6.5 million copies from Apple App Store and its free version was installed 11 million times. It is currently number one paid game at the App Store and for a good reason: the game is cleverly made, has excellent graphics and sounds effects, and is super addictive. In the last few days Angry Birds Lite has been downloaded over 250,000 times from Androud Market, got over 13000 ratings and has average rating of 4 out of 5 despite not working on some devices (see below).

The goal of the game is to attack pigs with, well, angry birds by using slingshot to launch the birds. Levels differ by kinds of birds available (separating into three smaller birds, speeding up, exploding) and layout of structures under which pigs are hiding. There’s no learning curve with this game as far as the controls go, so it will take no time to get started.
Beta version experience
The maker of the game, Rovio, stressed that this beta version may not work on all devices and according to the comments in the Android Market current beta version crashes on Sprint EVO 4G.
