  • Summary: After a giant claw kidnaps their eggs, the Angry Birds chase it into a wormhole and find themselves floating in a strange new galaxy – surrounded by space pigs! Luckily the Angry Birds have super powers of their own... Angry Birds Space features 60 interstellar levels on planets and in zero gravity, resulting in spectacular gameplay ranging from slow-motion puzzles to lightspeed destruction. With regular free updates, new in-app purchases, brand new birds, brand new superpowers, and a whole galaxy to explore, the sky is no longer the limit. Expand

    Background music is surreal and intense, which brings back memories of Star Wars & the Twilight Zone with a dash of Angry Birds.

    There has always been a reason that Angry Birds is THE mobile game, and that is because it does what it does extremely well indeed. My own personal iPhone has a folder for "Essentials" on the first page, and it is in to this very folder that I have put Angry Birds Space.

    Rovio did it again. The "Space" edition of Angry Birds is so addictive that you'll constantly need a charger for your iOS device.

    I've been converted! Don't expect me to start wearing Angry Birds T-Shirts all of a sudden, or going back and playing the original. But who knew that sticking an already strange pairing of birds and pigs, and launching them into an off-worldly environment, would turn me around. But, unfortunately for me, it has.

    Rovio's latest is an evolution that feels considerably more ambitious than previous updates.

    When it comes to Angry Birds, you know what to expect, but Angry Birds Space tweaks things just enough to make that statement almost entirely obsolete; sporting brand new mechanics, birds and a host of fun and challenging levels, it's the sequel the series warranted.

    Rovio, please, stop it.

    Wow, I don't understand what is the reason for that Angry Birds be popular, is the same game, but I love all the versions. Is one of the most addictive games, and this version, space, is amazing. Angry Birds Space is awesome. Expand

    When I first heard that Rovio was thinking of putting angry birds in space I loved the idea but thought it was a jokeFortunately, the game is real and brings angry birds into a theme never before seen by previous games.Released on march 22, I must say that if you haven't yet tried out angry birds:space, you are missing out.The game finally offers a newer theme & more creative levels that offers new birds,more strategic thinking as well as space physics.If you got tired of angry birds after awhile I am sure your love will be reunited after playing a few levels.There are even a few secret levels paying homage to super mario bros & space invaders.Recently I read that Rovio will also attempt to come out with angry birds 3d for mobile phone & the Nintendo 3ds which I also can not wait for.Releasing an Angry birds collection for ps vita would be a no brainer in my eyes.It is currently free for android users & 99 cents for ios.

    I was totally sick of the old Angry Birds, but this is an entirely new game! I love it! The space physics are amazing and the new birds are too. The only reason that I do not give it a ten is that there are a lot of crashes. Once the first update comes out and fixes the crashes, the game easily gets a ten out of ten! Expand

    I am a big fan of the Angry Birds series of games. I own all of them... even "Rio" which was a marketing whore job if I have even seen one (and the worst of the series). thankfully "Angry Birds Space" completly redeems Rovio from that failure. The one bad thing about it is the "danger zone" DLC offered at release. I think any gamer knows DLC at release is just a terrible business practice. It blatently shows that the developer is nickle and diming their fans. That being said I will probably buy it. I would have rathered they just upped the start price by 99 cents and include it at launch.

    That being said if you like Angry Birds or physics based games then pick this one up. Well worth the money... even for the HD version.

    What a great spin on the franchise. Excellent new physics elements with gravity coming into play. I enjoyed it and will always play it when I am bored on my iPhone. http://liquidgamer.podbean.com/ Expand

    Angry Birds' goal is mainly wasting as much of your time as it possibly can....and it succeeds completely in fulfilling this need! I think that's why they went to the stock market. Angry birds must be the most lame game in history. They are "the" only one in their category "strategic non-action" ...impressive! Expand
