Angry Birds take to space for zero G action

Written by Peter Scott



Rovio enlists Wernher von Braun, launch in t-minus 9,8,7…


Angry Birds are rocketing to space, thanks to the latest installment of Rovio’s physics based bestseller.

Rovio completely revamped the game’s physics engine, allowing it to simulate weightlessness and even gravity from nearby planets. The storyline, if anyone cares, finds our feathery heroes sucked through a vortex, along with their eternal foes, a bunch of slimy green pigs who stole their eggs, or bankers as three of our writers call them nowadays.

Angry Birds is one of the most downloaded games of all time, with more than 700 million downloads across a range of platforms. Even NASA, Wal-Mart and National Geographic joined in on the fun, promoting the game in their own way.

Like previous installments, Angry Birds Space is available on iOS, Android, PC and Mac. We won’t try it just yet, namely because we would not get anything done for the rest of the week.
