The latest instalment in the story of Rovio’s hit franchise is here. As the company promised early last month, Angry Birds Friends is now available on iOS and Android, offering a Facebook-powered social twist on the game that surely literally every single person in the galaxy must have played by now.

As with the version that has been available on Facebook since last year, the game lets you connect up your Facebook account to compete against friends to achieve the highest score on each level.

This is a standalone game, so scores you’ve achieved on the browser-based version won’t be carried over.

The juggernaut that is Angry Birds keeps motoring on and Rovio posted $71m in net profit on $195m in revenue for 2012 – a 101% jump in revenue, year-on-year. The long-promised cartoon series began in March but it remains to be seen if the Finnish company can turn this into a truly evergreen franchise to rival the best that Disney and its ilk can offer.
