Angry Birds Space Review – All your Golden Eggs are belong to us
App Type: Games
After the original Angry Birds came Angry Birds Seasons. After that came Angry Birds Rio. Now, after that comes Angry Birds Space. Just when you think Rovio Entertainment has exhausted their cache of ideas for the extremely popular video game that was originally an iOS title but went on to make the leap towards other gaming platforms, here comes Angry Birds Space, reinventing the world of Angry Birds itself by going out of this world and into deep space.
So, what’s new with Angry Birds Space? Not a lot, but the few novelties it has are so significantly different that it might be the Angry Birds title that bears the most difference from the original game. As its title indicates, Angry Birds Space relocates the perturbed birdies and their enemy pigs to outer space. Although the Angry Birds franchise’s trademark slingshot and fortress setup is retained in the new game, the consideration of space physics makes the proceedings far more interesting.
Often the birds vs. pigs matches in Angry Birds Space are played on asteroids and other celestial bodies whose gravitational fields affect the flight path of the vengeful avian characters. Gone is the straightforward and ordinary planes of the previous titles in the series. Now, when you prepare to hurl a bird to the pigs’ hideouts, you’ll see a curved line indicating its the projected path. But that doesn’t mean the game is as easy as aiming the end of that curved line to your desired destination. Again, note that gravitational forces get in the way of the bird’s trajectory.
Except for slight differences in their appearances, the birds and pigs in Angry Birds Space are pretty much the same as the birds and pigs we’ve come to love or hate, respectively. In addition, there’s a new avian warrior called the Ice Bird, which freezes everything it touches. Moreover, the Mighty Eagle of past Angry Birds titles has metamorphosed into the Space Eagle, creating a black hole around the pigs’ dwellings when summoned.
All levels in the first level pack in Angry Birds Space, punningly titled Pig Bang, are free to play, as is the first (and only the first) level of the especially challenging Danger Zone level pack, which can be unlocked via in-app purchase. Other level packs in the game, as well as a number of Space Eagles, can also be unlocked via the same.
Wihout a doubt, Angry Birds Space has taken the Angry Birds franchise to a whole new level, a level so high that it has gone beyond the Earth’s atmosphere.
