Angry Birds Space
It seems like this particular group of birds has been pretty upset with a particular group of pigs for quite some time. Now that they've taken their shenanigans to outer space, you can bet the madness isn't going to calm down anytime soon. Rovio Mobile has dropped its irate little friends into the role of space super heroes defending their egg-shaped homeland in Angry Birds Space. The physics/action game calls upon your mental fortitude to use gravitational forces to destroy all of evil-pig-kind. The angry birds are back and they need your help!
Although the birds have gained interstellar superpowers, you still need to launch them from a slingshot using your finger and the touchscreen. The birds do not fly true, however, so you have to adjust your shots by taking into account the forces of gravity. Environmental obstacles and the birds' unique powers must also added to the equation, but when you successfully fling a bomb bird into an asteroid field, you'll realize it was worth all the trouble! The right combination of these powerful elements is crucial if you are to get the high score and max stars for each level.
Everyone and their mother has played an Angry Birds game before, and the attractive visuals and easy-to-learn gameplay haven't been lost in Angry Birds Space. The new abilities and addition of mixed gravity/anti-gravity brings a lot of new experiences to the series, even if you've memorized every level of every Angry Birds game thus far. The small monetary investment is an easy decision, and if you don't mind parting with a little more cash, the tablet HD versions are far superior to their small screen counterparts. The birds eagerly await your support, cosmonaut!
