Rovio Mobile has rolled-out the latest Angry Birds app update, this time for the Space edition. This latest update can be found by way of the Google Play Store where it is currently sitting at version 1.4.0. Of course, version number aside, you will recognize this latest update due to the new water galaxy -- PigDipper.

Rovio's games but didn't want to shell out full price, then you'll be pleased to know that the company has dropped the prices on all of its games in a new winter sale. Of course, you can get the standard, ad-supported versions for free, but for some HD goodness, Rovio is now only charging $1. That isn't bad for an HD game, so it's time to stock up.
Angry Birds Space. The update will take players and their flock of birds to - you guessed it! - Mars, and has been dubbed Angry Birds Space: Red Planet. The timing of this announcement is pretty genius on Rovio's part, though we sadly don't have that much to go on at this point in time.
Angry Birds aren't showing any signs of slowing down. After launching the all new Angry Birds Space in late March, it quickly was downloaded around 50 million times by the end of April. Now just 1 month later those Space birds have reached a huge milestone -- 100 million downloads according to a tweet earlier today by the company.
Angry Birds are everywhere and in the UK it's about to get even bigger. This will actually be the second of its kind, but later this summer the UK will be opening their very own Angry Birds theme park. It will even offer exclusive levels for all the fans. Can Temple Run be next please?
Angry Birds Space is popular. That statement is something akin to "rock is hard" on the scale of most obvious things ever said, but a little specificity is useful: Rovio claims that the sequel to the smash hit Angry Birds has been downloaded 50 million times since it was released last month. That makes Angry Birds Space the fastest-growing ("selling" isn't really appropriate here) mobile game of all time. The stat takes into account downloads on Android and iOS.
Angry Birds Space has added ten new levels to its ice-themed "Fry Me To The Moon" zone. That's great, but there's something more interesting in the update - a glimpse at the next zone. The unraveling package shows one of the pigs munching on a galactic donut - one that looks remarkably like the one featured in the marketing for The Simpsons Movie back in 2007.
Angry Birds Space is a lot of fun. No, really, it justifies the hype - if you haven't tried it yet, download the free game in the Google Play Store. But for Pete's sake, make sure you're using the Google Play Store: a fake app is unsurprisingly masquerading as the ultra-popular mobile game to add Android phones and tablets to its network of infected devices, remotely downloading more malicious apps and displaying ads. Security researchers at Sophos spotted the fake app in third-party app stores, but says that the official Rovio files are not affected.
And you haven't been to Seattle. But just about everyone else knows that Angry Birds Space is now available for download, because they've been playing with zero-gravity avians all weekend. Across iOS and Android platforms, the game has been downloaded an incredible 10 million times already.
Angry Birds Space represents the first major revision to Rovio's familiar formula since the game launched - unlike the various Seasons themed updates (with the occasional extra bird thrown in) Angry Birds Space shakes up the equation with physics-based levels and puzzles, forcing players to account for areas of low, zero and radial gravity in order to smash those thieving pigs. Does Space live up to its world-conquering predecessor? Read on to find out.
