NASA and Rovio have become best buddies with the launch of Angry Birds Space, and with the latest update, NASA is looking to the Birds to save the Mars Curiosity Rover from those pesky pigs. The update, now live in the Play Store, adds 20 levels of the Birds flying around the Red Planet looking to get the rover back from the evil pigs.
The game also adds volcanos and meteors as things to avoid on your way to smashing up pigs, adding to the already diverse maps in the game. There are even hidden rovers and landers for you to find on the red planet that unlock special levels and help to “discover more about the NASA missions.” If you are a die-hard Angry Birds fan, don’t miss this new region of space to play in.
The NFL just took a wacky turn for the crazier this year. Teams have fallen apart, come together with trades and draft picks have been flying everywhere. Now that we’re into the training camp stage of the off-season, teams are looking to sure up their rosters for the year ahead and the Philadelphia Eagles have just made an unprecedented move, signing 5 undrafted free agents.

Fans of Angry Birds can go pick up the newest Seasons update which features the awesome Piglantis levels. What’s neat about Piglantis is the addition of the water levels that add a new sense of physics, just like Angry Birds Space. You dive the birds into the water where they become weightless, and as they near the surface, they pick up speed and come flying out of the water. It’s a really neat update which is good way to freshen up your AB skills. Go grab it. (more…)
The OG version of Angry Birds has just received an update to add 15 brand spanking new levels. They are called the “surf & turf” levels, so expect to see some sand castles and bring your sun screen. On a separate note, did Angry Birds Space make anyone happy? I thought it was actually pretty intriguing and look forward to future updates for that game.
When the word got out that the next Angry Birds was to take place in space, the first question many wondered was how Rovio intended on dealing with the lack of gravity in the aforementioned environment. Well, it looks like Rovio had to call on NASA itself and get some help. Since even astronauts get bored on the International Space Station, they had no problems obliging and decided to give everyone a quick lesson on trajectories and the weightless place they live in.
Angry Birds might be getting a bit old and played out, but this is actually sort of a fresh take on the idea and I think it could be a bit of fun. It looks to be a lot more challenging than previous versions and should keep folks busy for a while. Anyone here excited for the new version?

So you may have thought that Angry Birds was completely played out. Well, Rovio is here to prove you otherwise. A teaser has just been launched on Yahoo! that lets everyone in on a little secret. The Angry Birds, are no longer of this planet. That’s right, folks - Angry Birds: Space. (more…)
According to NVIDIA’s VP of Mobile Content, Rovio may be looking into ways of making Angry Birds more visually complex for users. Speaking at the Mobile Game Forum, Mr. Trevett was quoted as saying, ”Let’s just say Angry Birds can do a lot more. There’s lots of things Rovio could do in terms of particle effects or volcanoes exploding in the background.”
In no way did he come out and say 3D Angry Birds, but he did mention that there was no reason Rovio could not move into using 3D physics engines for the creation of their games. So should we all keep our ears perked for a possible 3D Angry Birds? I would play it.
