Angry Birds Friends, formerly called Angry Birds Facebook, is a collaboration between Rovio and Meta (formely Facebook), announced on the official Facebook page on January 25, 2012. The game was to be released on February 14, 2012, but appeared as a playable version on February 13 as a beta release. The app received a level-update on February 29 and March 29. Power-Ups originated here.

It was originally another webgame called Angry Birds Flash, a collaboration between Rovio and Adobe but got canceled and replaced by Friends in early 2012, after it's unknown/unconfirmed cancelation

Rovio and Meta have collaborated in the past to add extra bonus levels to several Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons episodes.

Gameplay

The game is similar in most ways to the classic Angry Birds game, but with some notable changes that allows players to target better, fly longer, and create more damage, but the game can be played without the use of power-ups.

  • Social media aspects allow players to invite friends to play or gift Power-ups to one another.
  • Angry Birds Shop allows players to purchase Power-ups for their own use or as gifts to other players.
  • Bird Coins: These are coins that are given as rewards by winning stars on Weekly Tournament Levels and placing in the Top 3. These came in an update for Angry Birds Friends on February 4th, 2013. You can use these coins to purchase Power UPs, Mighty Eagles, Avatars and Costumes, and Wingmans.
    • Wingman is a power-up of Terence wearing a wrestling mask. When used a cutscene will play and he will tag the current bird on the slingshot out and he will go in there place. Special Superhero Effects like "Bam!" or "Pow!" are included when this hero deals with damage!
    • Avatars are icons of characters you can give to your account. The characters avalible are Red, Chuck, Bomb, The Blues, Matilda, Minion Pig, Red with an explosion background, Terence and Bubbles.

Tournaments

Note: There are some tournaments that were re-editioned in the game, some adding new content, but they aren't on the list, because it repeats unnecessarily. The re-editions are in its respective tournament pages.

Other Characters


Star Cup

See Star Cup.

The original logo for Angry Birds Facebook included the King Pig's three-pointed crown. However, on March 14, 2012, the logo was changed to include a less-specific crown.

In mid-May, the name has changed to Angry Birds Friends, The logo was also changed to Bomb, Matilda, Chuck, Red, and Terence's silhouettes.

In May 2013, the logo has changed from the silhouettes to just a simple logo with blue rectangles surrounding the word "Friends" because of the release on mobile.

In 2016, the logo has changed.


Social Media

Angry Birds Friends utilizes the social media nature of Facebook in three key areas:

What are those crowns in my level selection screen?
A crown is a visual indicator of your rank among your friends. A gold crown means you have the highest score of all your friends who are playing Angry Birds on Facebook. Silver and bronze crowns are rewards for second and third places respectively. You can see which levels you hold a crown in, in the level selection screen.

Design Update

Sprite Sheet with the updated designs. Note that the Zombie Pigs and Scientist Pig didn't get new designs.

On the mobile version, the designs of the Power-Ups were updated in April 2017. After that, in May of the same year, both the birds and pigs' designs were updated, leaving them with their Toons designs and giving Hal a brand new design, which he has a curved orange beak, a body like the classic design but with updated feathers and a yellow ring around the eyes. Corporal Pig, Foreman Pig, and King Pig kept their original designs but updated to be like their Toons designs. King Pig's crown received golden spheres.

Bubbles didn't receive one, mostly because his in-game design was the same as his Toons design.

In April 2019, the Facebook version also was updated with the new designs and was currently only for the pigs. Bird's designs were changed on January 2020 along with the removal of Story Mode and Bird-O-Matic.

Original Version

In 2019, a Microsoft port of the game came out which had an all-new menu. The changes in that version came to the mobile version in November 2019 and the Facebook version in January 2020. This is a bit about the original version and everything removed.

Episodes


Golden Egg / Easter Egg Locations

On April 3, 2012, AB Facebook introduced Golden/Easter Eggs. There were 10 eggs. Here were the locations.


Avatars

A sampling of some birds

On February 11, 2012, Rovio introduced a link via the Angry Birds Facebook page for users to create a customized Bird avatar. The customizations included a crown, cowboy hat, pirate hat, and sombrero, along with three types of sunglasses and an eye patch. Users can choose between Red, Chuck, Female Red Bird, The Blues, Hal, King Pig, Bomb, Terence, Matilda, Super Space Red, an Egg, Stella, & Bubbles as their customized avatar (only the first three and later Stella are available for free). A cryptic message about defending the egg with a large flock around a Golden Egg with a crown can be seen on the site.

Avatars were officially released on the site on March 14, 2012, with the launch of the "Bird-O-Matic" tool with several additional items to add to your character, which are:

These are the backgrounds:

  • Easter Background
  • Wingman Tournament Background
  • Valentine's Day 2014 Tournament Background
  • Winter Tournament 2013 Tournament Background
  • Pig Tales Background
  • Pig Bang Moon Background
  • Hogs and Kisses Background
  • Surf and Turf Background
  • Season's Greedings Background
  • Ham'em High Backgound
  • Mighty Hoax Background
  • Poached Eggs Background
  • Bronze Wreath Background (100 Stars Required)
  • Silver Wreath Background (200 Stars Required)
  • Golden Wreath Background (300 Stars Required)
  • Diamond Background (400 Stars Required)

It was removed - if you played before it was removed, you get a power-up box.

Mighty Eagle

Mighty Eagle used to be in the Facebook version of the game. He functioned the same as he did in Angry Birds Classic, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio.

Mighty Eagle.png

The one change is that, as with the Power-Ups, the Mighty Eagle has limited uses and additional usage must be earned or purchased through the store. Mighty Eagle was taken out of the game in January 2020.

Tutorial

The tutorial used to be a game mode in the mobile version. It used to be mandatory to complete to use the tournaments but an update removed that. It was always mandatory to complete when trying to play the power-up practice.

Power-up Practice

Power-up practise was a mode in the mobile version. You would be given unlimited power-ups in this mode. It was removed in December 2019.

Original Player Icons

The original player icons consisted of Red, Chuck, Bomb, The Blues, Wingman, Hal, Bubbles and Fat Pig

ABF Ninth Icon.png Angry Birds Friends (Mobile) A mobile version of Angry Birds Friends, which removes the episodes, the Mighty Eagle and the Bird-O-Matic but adds the Tutorial which was removed in 2016 and the Power-Up Practice which was removed in November 2019 due to it adding the Piggy Tower. It also keeps the Weekly Tournament, the Power-Ups and Wingman. Unlike the Facebook version, you don't need a Facebook account to play this version.

Trivia

  • Before the update on February 4th, 2013, Weekly Tournaments were played at night time, but in the update, the background is played during the daytime.
  • Just two weeks after the new tournament update with Wingman, February 18th, 2013, another update to Angry Birds Friends updates rivals to the Tournaments, for those who don't have rivals to play against yet. Photos of Chuck the Yellow Bird and Red the Red Bird appear competing in the tournament as CPU rivals. Beat their high score and you're a couple of steps closer to winning unless there are Facebook User opponents.
  • Angry Birds Friends' logo has been changed some days after the mobile version got released.
  • This is the 6th Angry Birds game in the Angry Birds App/Game series, including its spin-off, Bad Piggies.
  • This is the second time that Female Red Bird appears. The first was in Angry Birds Seasons.
  • This is the only Angry Birds game that is playable on Facebook. Other games with Facebook connect are unable to play on the Facebook site.
  • Bomb and Matilda now appear on the score leaderboard since the Movie and Own The Movie Tournament, but they appear randomly.
  • There was supposed to be an Egg Bomb power-up where egg bombs with parachutes fall from the sky, but Rovio cut it, probably because it resembled Matilda's power too much.
  • If the date is the player's birthday, 5Wingman Power-Ups will be given to the player for free.
  • Stella, when launched from the slingshot, sometimes uses Hal's launch voice (from Angry Birds Seasons, primarily, and since the newer updates of Angry Birds Classic and Angry Birds Rio) for unknown reason.
  • Bubbles makes his own sounds when he waits for a slingshot, a feature originally planned for Angry Birds Seasons.
  • The Power-Up Practice was the only mode with unlimited Power-Ups.
  • As of May 2017 this is now the second classic game to use Toons sprites, after Angry Birds Rio (Rio 2 episodes).
  • Strangely, Bubbles is the only bird not to be redesigned in his toons style.
  • Some sound in Angry Birds 2 are used on this game.
  • Strangely, before Poached Eggs was removed, a pre-Chrome Foreman Pig can be seen with orange eyebrows on the level select screen for Poached Eggs. Classic Foreman Pig Orange Eyebrows.jpg
