Angry Birds Space, the latest installment of the best selling mobile game of all time, has finally arrived. Rovio, the developer behind the series, partnered with NASA, the U.S. space agency, to promote the release, including a plug filmed by an Angry Bird-toting astronaut on the International Space Station.

Angry Birds Space delivers the biggest change yet in the series' well-known "launch birds out of a slingshot at pigs" gameplay. Instead of dealing with the gravity of just one planet, players are dealing with several. Kotaku explains:

Yes, you still play level by level. You still have a set number of birds—birds of different types—that you'll slingshot at towers of blocks, hoping to squash some pigs.

But now you're shooting your birds through space, from one planet to the next. Each planet has a gravitational field. Gone is the simplicity of just lobbing a bird in an arc. No. Welcome to the physics of the heavenly bodies. Shoot a bird into open space and it'll fly off in a straight line. Shoot one toward another planet and it'll get caught in its gravitational field and start orbiting the planet... or slowly descend as it encircles the planet to smash into the ground.


Angry Birds Space is $0.99 on iPhone and iPod Touch. [Direct Link]
Angry Birds Space HD is $2.99 on the iPad. [Direct Link]
Angry Birds Space is $4.99 on the Mac. [Direct Link]

These guys are getting greedy, no Universal App, you have to pay an extra .99 to play the full levels available in the game and you have to pay even more if you want to play with the mighty eagle, up to 19.99 !

Greedy? You've got to be kidding! Would you spend thousands of hours developing a game for free? I don't think so.

Am I the only person left on Earth that thinks that Angry Birds is a mediocre game at best? It's really not that entertaining.
Yes. Angry Birds is probably the most fun I've had with a game since the N64 days.

Universal app takes a lot of space. Especially with Retina display. You rather pay $4.99 for Universal app or $0.99 for iPhone app and $2.99 for iPad?
Maybe I'm the only one, but I'd actually pay $4.99 for a Universal app vs having 2 separate apps :)

Oh well, yeah, god forbid that anyone should ever develop a product and actually make money from it. We who spend $1100 minimum for a mac and $499 minimum for a iPad are going to quibble over 99 cents? Please.

I played a bit on a friend's phone and can't figure it out... but at least it looks more enjoyable than that Fruit Ninja game that my old roommate and his girlfriend/fiance used to play for HOURS at a time. It was so weird how they'd just sit on the couch and swipe their fingers at airborne fruit for literally an entire evening...
