Angry Birds game finally lands on WebOS devices

One of the most popular--and lucrative--games for the iPhone is now out for Palm's WebOS devices.

If you have an iPhone or an iPod Touch and you're not yet playing Angry Birds, you don't know what you're missing.

I've been stuck on this level for three days trying to get three stars. I know, I need help. Matt Hickey

Angry Birds, which has been downloaded more than 5 million times via iTunes, is a game in which you play an army of titular birds angry at an enemy army of green pigs that have stolen all your eggs. They've made up structures to hide behind, which you destroy by flinging super-powered birds at them, knocking down their walls.

The game is far and away one of the most fun games on the platform. It has a great combination of problem solving and skill and a perfect physics engine, and it has great replayability. And now it's coming to WebOS devices.

We knew it was coming a couple of weeks ago, so it's no surprise, but the fact that it's finally landed (ha ha!) fills me and any other Pre users with joy. I can now play this on my Pre to save my poor, poor iPhone's battery. I have quite literally played my way through an entire charge trying to get one level right.

It's available right now at the Palm store for $1.99. It's two bucks that will buy you hours of fun. You can thank me later.

Now when are we getting new levels, Rovio?
