    So, Google+ Games has just been released, and with it comes Angry Birds, flash in the browser. Who needs a native app!?!

    Tried Angry Birds - just gt stuck at Rovio logo screen.

    I'm giving it a few more minutes to see what it'll do, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Wiped the cache and everything, let it sit for at least 5 minutes with no joy.

    I don't think it is a flash issue, as the rovio is part of the flash - rather I think its a browser issue regarding the game data and where its saved or something.

    Close though - still don't get how it can take them so long to get an Angry Birds version to the PB.

    Why did anyone think this would work? It's just the Chrome version that never worked either. Smh.

    PS: It's not Flash, it's HTML5 with WebGL, which is why it doesn't work.. no mobile browser supports WebGL, except the Nokia N900

    lol omg my bad bla1ze... see, I've been away, and my friend has been talking about playing Angry Birds on the PlayBook.

    Guess he was wrong.

    Nevertheless, it still is a really fun game, guess we'll have to wait for the native app anyways!

    Would anyone be interested in a slightly better version of the flash game wrapped in a bar file? I decided to rebuild it using GPU acceleration on the PB and I must say it does play much smoother now. Is it great? No, but it is much better then just CPU rendering.

    I packaged it up, but remembered all the hate and discontent with the packaged Angry Birds apps here so I haven't said anything about it. A few friends have kids that love Angry Birds and they've mentioned that this version does play much better in their opinion, and the kids think its "better" as well.

    Didn't know if it was worth posting or not...

    Yep. Same people that blasted Angry Birds (free), but then rushed out and paid for Angry Farm.

    Yes, Verizon 4G is really that fast!

    Alright, alright, I'll post it up. Give me a chance to get it in a release package first, I have just been running the debug version of it on my PB. And for some reason, as soon as I do the release packaging for it, it ends up at a white screen... Grrrr... Looks like the AIR SDK is messing with the SWF, not sure why but the sizes are definitely different.

    Ohh well, I'll just throw together a manual package of it. Give me a little bit and I'll post it up soon.

    Well, I know it's not perfect, but it should be a little more playable with the GPU acceleration turned on. Any of the 20 or so that have downloaded it given it a shot yet? How do you think it compares to the CPU accelerated version?

    Thanks! It's pretty good. Much better than the browser based one. Better than the one on the really cheap Android tablets too...

    Its definitely better, the little hand thing is still annoying and it sucks that you cant pinch and zoom on the screen. However its much more playable then the cpu one so thanks. It does crash too thou after certain levels and i even tried playing it with no other apps open but it still crashes. It will definitely hold me over thou until they release the real one, whenever that may be

    No you dont need the android player installed. If you search, simple simple way to install bar files on you playbook then that thread should help you. Ive tried to install it other ways but it they werent successful. That way should work for you, good luck.
