Angry Birds Launches into Space!

Most of you already know this by now as this game is hugely popular, but for the unfortunate soul who hasn’t heard: Angry Birds has gone into space. Literally. On Thursday the birds took to outer space to again claim their oft-snatched eggs back from the clutches of those evil pigs.

Having played the game’s first level “Pig Bang” I’ve found it’s new dynamic of gravity influencing the game mechanics especially entertaining. At times you have to use the slingshot in reverse to accomplish your goal; it is not necessarily a derp moment for those with butterfingers (like mine).

With Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Seasons already out, Angry Birds in Space looks to capitalize on the market who’ve gone fowl-crazy for those birds without wings. Will they get their precious eggs back? Play the game and find out!
