Nothing beats the gaming thrill of going head-to-head (or kart-to-kart) with your friends while you’re sat in the same room. Not only do you get to see their disappointed face as you come out triumphant, you get to do a little victory dance in front of them, just to gloat a bit more.

Downhill kart racing game Angry Birds Go! has recently added a new feature called Party Mode. It means two players can battle each other on different devices over a local wi-fi network while in the same location. Game on!

It’s only two player at the moment but will evolve to include group play so you can really start to test those friendships.

To experience party mode first hand, download Angry Birds Go! for iOS or Android.
