We all love our evil wingless pig-tormenting birds, don’t we? Of course we do, or else the latest Angry Birds installment, “Space”, wouldn’t have made it to 100 million downloads in just two and a half months. And the series wouldn’t have reached the billion download mark either. And because Rovio, the developing studio behind AB’s monstrous success, has made a habit of releasing frequent updates to the franchise, it should come as no surprise that we should get our Android gadgets ready for a new Angry Birds title. Called Angry Birds Space: Red Planet, the new game will be…

  It seems only 77 days ago Angry Birds Space was released by Rovio. Wait, it was 77 days (or so) ago. In that short period of time, gamers have been scooping up copies of the intergalactic tales of the temperamental birds like crazy. Now Rovio has gleefully announced on its Twitter account that the game has passed 100 million downloads. Now that the 100 million download marks have been broken, we dare not wonder how high those birds can soar – because not even space is the limit. And if playing on your mobile devices isn’t enough, it has been…

10 million downloads? Pfft. How about 50 million downloads in just 35 days? That’s more like it. That happens to be the number of downloads that Angry Birds Space has accumulated within 35 days of being launched into space. So, what’s next for the temperamental bunch of fowls? Rovio took yesterday to their website and Twitter account to thank gamers for the fantastic reception and to announce the historic milestone, which breaks the Finns’ previous records. The game developers teased us by saying that there’s “something even bigger on its way!”  That’s a pretty vague statement to be speculate about, so,…

Angry Birds developer Rovio certainly went all out with their marketing for their hit game’s newest edition, Angry Birds Space. How out? Its announcement was beamed to Earth from the International Space Station. On launch day, Seattle’s Space Needle tower was turned into a giant slingshot. This edition is also being promoted through partnerships with NASA, National Geographic, Samsung, Walmart and Nickelodeon, to name only the largest partners. That out. With the entire Angry Birds series accruing over 700 million downloads, the pressure on Rovio to go above and beyond, was, well, of astronomical proportions. But the super-massive marketing strategy has certainly…

The Angry Birds are back, and so are their enemies, the green pigs! The birds have taken flight into outer space, but that still isn’t enough to avoid the pigs, who use spaceships to steal the Angry Bird’s eggs. You know the drill by now. It’s time to deal some payback, but with astrophysics! I’ve been playing Angry Birds Space for about an hour now, and I am thoroughly impressed. In fact I think this is the best version of Angry Birds that Rovio has ever released. What’s New? As you’ll soon see if you give ABS a try, the…

Are you ready for some bird-slinging action? In space? Today, Rovio has finally unleashed its long-awaited Angry Birds Space, which today became available for download on Android and iOS devices (an even on Windows PCs and Macs, if you’re into that stuff). The game boasts over 60 interstellar levels for you to try your aiming skills, and you can be sure that the new cosmic backdrop will pose some fun challenges. Among other twists, the sequel to the original Angry Birds mega-hit requires you to take into account the lack of gravity, as you navigate the restraint-challenged birds to planets,…
