Angry Birds Space breaks records with 50 million downloads

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 adds ten levels – Simpsons could be next

Angry Birds fanatics, check the Google Play Store for an update today - 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.

Fake Angry Birds Space app is a trojan in disguise

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.

Angry Birds Space downloaded 10 million times in just three days

If you haven't heard that Rovio's released an update to its Angry Birds franchise yet, congratulations: you've managed to avoid online, print, television (both cable and local) and word-of-mouth news for the last few days. 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.

Android Community Weekly: March 25th, 2012

With the Ides of March fully behind us, the folks at Android Community are looking forward to summer... and all the drool-worthy hardware it brings. The last week saw quite a bit of activity in that space, with new hardware being announced and leaked steadily. Of course there's plenty of movement on the software front as well, with more and more devices getting upgraded (or at lease getting the promise of an upgrade) and the first hints of Android 4.0.5, the latest version of Ice Cream Sandwich.

Angry Birds Space review

It's finally here: the avian outer space destruction simulation that's been on the minds of Bird-brains for weeks. 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.

Angry Birds Space hits Play Market

Angry Birds Space has gone live in the Android Play Market, offering bird-hurling pig haters the opportunity to fling feathers in space. Featuring sixty levels spread across both space and planets, with a mixture of zero-gravity and non-Earth gravity to get your head around, the updated game also introduces new birds and a variety of in-app purchase content. For instance, there's the DANGER ZONE pack, with 30 of what developers Rovio Mobile says are the "most difficult levels" every offered. The regular game itself features a number of hidden levels, including one focused on anti-cyberbullying. The Android version of the game is a free download, unlike the iOS versions which kick off at $0.99, though that does mean you get adverts. You can download Angry Birds Space here. [via SlashGear]

Angry Birds hang with NASA astronaut for a Space physics lesson

If you haven't heard the first true sequel to Rovio's smash hit Angry Birds is coming later this month, you must have been hiding inside a exogorth. To explain the physics behind the new Angry Birds Space, Rovio employed the assistance of someone who ought to know: NASA astronaut Don Pettit, currently living on the International Space Station. With the help of an Angry Birds keychain, a green balloon, a bungie cord and no gravity, he explains some of the features we're likely to see in Angry Birds Space when it launches on March 22nd.
