Finnish video game developer Rovio, creators of the best selling application Angry Birds, have released a Formula One version of their game called “Angry Birds Heikki”, dedicated to Caterham F1 driver Heikki Kovalainen.
The on-line format of the app allows players to enjoy the game set in the backdrop of 12 World famous Grand Prix circuits. Starting with Silverstone as Level One, a new level is unlocked at set dates for each of the forthcoming races until the end of the season.
Angry Birds has been prominent in Formula One this year with Kovalainen sporting a themed crash helmet and the Lotus F1 Team using an Angry Birds livery for the Monaco Grand Prix, dedicated to fellow Finn, Kimi Raikkonen.
The game has a twist on the original format. Players can access a code through Kovalainen’s official Facebook fan page which allows you to gain “Heikki Power” and use Kovalainen’s crash helmet as an extra Angry Bird.
The game can be found at heikki.angrybirds.com.
