Angry Birds are now in space.
We first told you they were headed into orbit earlier this month, when astronaut Don Pettit introduced us to the game from the International Space Station (ISS). The app, the next in the series of the super popular Angry Birds game apps, launched today.
It’s a new take on the well known game. The Birds, angry over the theft of their eggs by little green pigs are on the attack. Only this time, the familiar arc they are shot in does not apply. There’s no gravity in the emptiness of space. However, the Birds are affecting by the gravity of planetary bodies when they are near. Unexpected, but not totally unpredictable, results ensue.
Hmmm… now that they are in space, the ‘green-ness’ of the pigs seems somewhat fitting – did the developers have space in mind from the beginning?
