How to Play Angry Birds on Linux Machines

Rovio games famous for their game series Angry Birds released variants for different platforms including iPhone, Android and the latest being for Windows PC. But you might not get to see Angry Birds for Linux machines any time soon. If you are a die-hard fan this addictive game and would like to play it on Linux distro including Ubuntu then you can try loading it via Wine.

Wine is a compatibility layer – it runs Windows applications in much the same way Windows does. There is no inherent loss of speed due to “emulation” when using Wine, nor is there a need to open Wine before running your application.

Angry Birds for windows is available for $4.99 from Intel app store and you can load it from Wine on Ubuntu or other Linux distro. You can play all 195 levels and earn points just like what it was on a Windows PC.
