The Angry Birds franchise expanded to encompass cult-favorite Star Wars, which on December 18 made its way onto Facebook. We don’t have to tell you that the game is as addicting as ever, so as with anything having to do with Angry Birds, approach with caution.
Halfbrick Studios outdid itself once again after its smashing success (quite literally) with Fruit Ninja. Jetpack Joyride, which you can find as both a Facebook and mobile app, takes your character through levels of “endless” runs strapped on a jetpack with the sole objective of surviving (and collecting coins if you want to buy in-app upgrades). It’s a fun alternative from the humdrum of Farmville-style games populated Facebook.
The age-old classic is reborn in this contemporary take on Tetris. You can play marathon style solo matches to test your endurance, challenge your friends, or even take on random players around the world that are matched to your level of play.
Diamond Dash (Puzzle)
Diamond Dash is little more than a Bejeweled wannabe, except you can share your fortune with all your Facebook friends. Like Bejeweled, players have a mere 60 seconds to match as many colorful diamonds as they can to rack up their score and level up. Compete in the online leaderboards, help your for friends or challenge them in a fast-pace, one-on-one competition.
SongPop (Trivia & Word)
Ready to wrack your musical brain? SongPop is the perfect companion for the musical know-it-all who wants to show off his or her skills against online friends. It works like a standard trivia game; players listen to a song clip and then try to choose the correct answer among a few multiple choice options. The game isn’t particularly enthralling, but serves as a great way to challenge your friends, rediscover lost hits, and open your mind to new musical genres. Believe us, you’ll be surprised what you actually know.
