When I read this app game was number one across 116 countries across the globe I thought I’d check out what all the fuss is about. For as little as 69p in the UK the game Angry Birds Space is a bargain. It takes the fundamental physics of the original game and turns it around into something bizarre and obtrusively different. Players who enjoy the original concept of Angry Birds will be all too familiar with the game but will enjoy this new edge on the original.
The game is out of this world in more ways than one. At the start you will find a giant claw comes along and steals your eggs. This naturally gets the birds into the anger zone and they proceed to chase the giant claw into a wormhole. Once through the wormhole the Angry Birds are plunged into a new realm of some kind of distant galaxy. The crazy and humourous thing about this strange new galaxy is the presence of flying pigs, or space pigs.
There are a staggering 80 different interstellar levels, so you will never get bored playing on the same level all the time and you will always be challenged as a result. The game play is very spectacular and with planets aplenty and no gravity you will soon find you are floating into a pig-smashing cosmic calamity!
There are regular updates and upgrades that come through and they are always free and this time around Angry Birds Space features new types of birds. The Angry Birds also possess new types of super powers, all of which take place in zero-gravity space. It’s a real adventure game and you will not want to put it down. You can even try out your skill tactics and strategy by using the planet’s gravity to fling yourself in a kind of sling-shot fashion. This would probably be for those who are a little more advanced at the game however.
There a new in-app purchases available and at least 30 different levels that I would describe as the most challenging I have ever faced. If you can master the so-called Danger Zone then you must surely be an Angry Birds aficionado! I liked the way you could open up a worm hole of destruction with Space Eagles. It is a bit like joining the global fun and games in galactic style. Very cool!
