Pigs still can’t fly, but they’ve gone intergalactic
Angry Birds Space For iPhone : So, the birds are back. Of course they are, given the popularity of their original outing – familiar to everyone from foetuses to your gran, Angry Birds is the most downloaded and paid-for iOS app ever. Hell, there are even plans for Angry Birds theme parks!
There must have been a real temptation to just crank out another follow-up along the lines of the relatively templated Seasons. Thankfully, AB Space takes the series in a new direction.
You still have to wreak havoc upon those green porcine pests and their ice, wood and stone structures, but now you’re soaring between planets and out in the void. Each planet has its own atmosphere and gravitational pull, and this needs to be taken into account as you formulate your plan of attack. You can slingshot birds around planets, adding curve to your path and changing your speed. Objects travel faster within a planet’s ‘atmosphere’ than they do outside of it, adding more tactical depth than before. IAP has inevitable been upped this time around however.
