The latest iteration of the phenomenally successful Angry Birds franchise, Angry Birds Space, has been unveiled to the public on both the iOS and Mac App Store. Rovio, the designers of the app, have completely rewritten the game engine to incorporate new challenges and ‘innovative new gameplay, but with some of the familiar Angry Birds elements that fans already know and love, plus some surprises!‘
The new game is based around the concept of the Angry Birds going after a giant claw that has stolen their eggs and disappeared down a wormhole. The Angry Birds follow the Claw into the wormhole and into a new galaxy filled with space pigs. The game features 60 new interstellar levels and zero gravity puzzles which can take place in either slow motion or light speed. As usual, there will be regular free level updates with in app purchases and bird upgrades.
The game is available now, on the iPhone and iPod touch for $0.99, on the iPad for $2.99 and on the Mac App Store for $4.99. If you already own one of these devices, then you’ll know how big this is gonna be.
