You might have recently read my post about why I think Angry Birds is one of the best games on iOS. Nearly 2 weeks ago, Angry Birds Space was announced by Rovio and we were even told NASA was involved in it. In my last post about Angry Birds, I said that I didn’t like it because it was the same thing over and over again. Well in Angry Birds Space, that changes.
With Angry Birds Space, the gameplay most have come to love has changed. Now, physics comes into play a lot more with no gravity and gravity affected fields in the levels. As seen in the screenshots above, a lot has changed. The birds got a makeover and there is 1 new bird. That blue squared bird converts blocks into ice.
I encountered some problems with the game. First I couldn’t open it. I somehow fixed that problem but the, while I’m playing it would constantly crash. I was able to solve my problem by deleting the app, re-downloading it and then rebooting. unfortunately, I lost all my data (If you follow me on twitter you could see how mad I was with Rovio).
You can buy Angry Birds space for $0.99 in iTunes. A part of me recommends it because it is fun and the gameplay changed, but another part of me doesn’t recommend it because of all the crashing I got. Let me know how the game plays for you and if you liked it.

Have you ever heard of Angry Birds? If you haven’t, Angry Birds is one of those apps that haven’t left the Top 25 since it came out, so popular it’s in the Hall of Fame.
Personally, I like Angry Birds but at the same time I don’t. To the point, the main reason is because it’s a paid application, yet it still has ads.
I don’t mean to sound biased but I don’t see what makes Angry Birds so addictive and awesome. Now I look at a game like Cut the Rope or Zombieville 2 and I will drop my iPod when it’s low on battery.
The point is Angry Birds is a one time show, no matter how many how sequels it has or how many new levels it has it becomes boring after a while and you start think “Argh! Why did I buy this?” Many people say that it is a fun game, ask them how much do they play it, I’d be surprised it the answer is more than thrice a week. People go around saying that it has physics in it and it improves your skills, i say that play Where’s my water, it enhances your brian or play doodle jump it tests your skills to the maximum level.
Those are just a few reasons of why Angry Birds does not deserve the post it has, if you haven’t bought it yet I’d suggest you to think twice before buying it.
