Friday Fun: Angry Birds

Angry BirdsYou’re bound to have seen, or at least heard of, Angry Birds – the avian-themed physics game. Did you know it’s available to play online, for free? It’s intended as a technology showcase for Google’s Chrome browser, but I’ve tried it in Safari and Firefox with good results too (sorry, haven’t tried it in Internet Explorer). This is an HTML5 game, so will require one of the most recent browser versions.

So, if you fancy seeing what all the fuss is about, or if you just want a quick game without having to get your phone out, click on the link below and have fun. There is sound… so probably best not to do this at work ;)

Roly Poly Cannon [Friday Fun]

I have to admit to being a bit of an Angry Birds addict, and this week’s Friday Fun is something along the same lines. The monsters are attacking, and you need to defend yourself with your cannon. Knock the monsters off their perches and dispatch them in various diabolical ways.

It’s all self-explanatory once you get into it. You will need Flash to play, and there is sound but you can switch this off… but then you won’t hear the screams :)
