We have known for a couple of weeks that the newest Angry Birds game will be hitting devices soon. That “soon” has arrived as the Angry Birds Space has now been made available for download for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, for Android devices, and also for the Mac and Windows or PC. Rovio, the maker of Angry Birds, made the announcement very recently and the game can be downloaded from the links below.
What essentially makes this newest Angry Birds game different is that it uses space physics for its gameplay, so you will not be getting the gameplay you’ve grown used to in previous Angry Birds versions. Birds can now float through space in zero gravity, or use the gravity of nearby planets to do trick shots. The game also introduces new birds and new superpowers. Angry Birds Space has 60 levels and Rovio promises regular free updates in the future. You can also purchase content via in-app purchase but it appears that this is initially available with the iOS version. There are also hidden stuff, secret levels and space content.
Will the game be free to download? It depends on your device. For iOS devices, the app is not free. Angry Birds Space is available for $0.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch. If you opt for the HD version for the new retina display iPad, you’ll need $2.99. For Mac users, Angry Birds Space can be purchased for $4.99 from the Mac App Store.
Android users are lucky since they can download Angry Birds Space for free. The catch is, it will have advertising. If you opt for the ad-free Android version, you need to pay $0.99. Angry Birds Space is also available for HD Android tablets for the price is $2.99.
