Since 2009 video game company Rovio Mobile has put out revision after glorious revision of it’s amazing game Angry Birds with great skill and the marketing precision of a world class brain surgeon. That’s why when I heard about the release of Angry Birds Space, a true Angry Birds sequel I knew I had to get a copy and check it out. I have pretty much downloaded every update of the Angry Birds franchise since the first free trial game to the last holiday version whatever one that was. I downloaded a version of this game so many times I forget what the last one was to tell you the truth. However one thing I can say for sure about Angry Birds Space is I can’t stop playing it!! It’s still Angry Birds but the space aspect really makes it a new kind of fun that I feel will keep people playing for quite a while.
With this new version of Angry Birds it’s the Space part that is so cool. You now are dealing with gravity or the lack of gravity and how being close to a planet can have some weird effects on your birds. Basically it’s the same game play as all the other Angry Birds games as you would expect. You have a slingshot, you have your angry birds, and you have those nasty pigs you are trying to knock down on each level. The cool part is now you have the aspect of gravity that can either cause your bird to fly off into space or orbit around a planet or moon on its way to hitting one of the pigs or their structures. What is also knew if the aiming system shows you how your bird will curve around a moon or planet in orbit due to the gravitational pull of the object it’s moving around. What’s really amazing is how simple it is to understand how this works and how natural it feels from the moment you first start playing it. It’s not complex at all and really is fun right from the start. One of my favorite things to do was slingshot a bird around a planet and into the target i was looking to hit. The folks at Rovio Mobile have really done it again as far as I am concerned.
Another cool part of Angry Birds space is there are a couple new birds to talk about that have some very fun and interesting weapons of destruction. First there’s the Ice Bird which as you can imagine turns anything it touches into frozen blocks of ice that can be shattered oh so easily. Then if that’s not bad enough there’s the all new Laser Bird. This is a two step attack. You let the laser bird fly from the slingshot and then press any spot on the screen to create a target and he attacks it with a laser strike. All the old birds are back and their attacks have also been altered slightly based on the effect messing with gravity has on the game play. You can use the Red Birds to bump into asteroids to help push them into pigs or push pigs into close proximity of a gravitational force and pull them down to the eventual demise. The blue birds splitting up into three is back and those little birdies can go off in any direction one you start getting them orbiting around an object. It’s just a different kind of game but yet the same game when it comes to Angry Birds Space. Whatever it is, it’s definitely a great deal of fun to play. Once people are done playing all the levels of Angry Birds Space I know they are going to start asking for more.
This app is fantastic! Classic Angry Birds with a twist! Don’t hesitate to buy it!
