Look for bonus Angry Birds Space rounds in Walmart



Can't get enough of the new Angry Birds Space released last week? Game creator Rovio teamed up with Walmart where its customers can find  “Golden Eggsteroid” clues that open up four bonus levels. The first of four clues is available to Walmart's Facebook fans at The remaining clues will be embedded in select limited-edition Angry Birds merchandise available in Walmart stores, including apparel, plush toys, mobile phones, snacks and more.

“Walmart is bringing fun back to the shopping experience, with interactive merchandise that brings the best of digital gaming together with in-store retail,” said Seong Ohm, senior vice president and general merchandise manager for entertainment, Walmart U.S. “By partnering with Rovio, we’re able to give millions of avid bird slingers bonus content by coming into our stores and shopping our broad assortment of Angry Birds Space
merchandise. This is just one of many exciting partnerships Walmart is forging to give our customers access to exclusive content.”

Hidden game clues can be hidden on pricetags, snack boxes and even on a T-shirt design on Angry Birds Space-themed items.
