I am able to get this working by setting "preferences.localStorageEnabled: true" in the browser, but it stops at 60% with a lot of flashing.

Added a webbrowser-app task for this, as I only get a "Get the android version" screen when viewing this on the device (I guess it'll need a user agent override).

That won't fix the other issues with the game the last time I tried it though, but it would be great to get this working

The linked branch adds UA overrides for on both desktop and mobile. With that, angrybirds works on my N7. The game fully loads and is playable without any flickering, however it’s pretty slow and not super responsive.
