The game is currently available for download via Intel’s AppUp Center at appup.com, and will work on Windows XP , Windows 7 and Moblin machines. Since most PCs and netbooks don’t have a touchscreen, unlike the smartphones where Angry Birds is more commonly found on, Angry Birds for Windows 7 and XP uses the trackpad instead to catapult birds at precarious towers of green pigs.

In addition to this, there will be unique enhancements not found in the mobile version, free of charge. The new PC app costs $9.99/£5.99/7.99 euros to download in the Intel AppUp centre depending on what country you are in; but thanks to a limited time offer, Angry Birds will be available at the special promotional price of $4.99. So grab your copy now and save $5.
