The Angry Birds have blast off to space.

We've all complained about how sick we are of Angry Birds, but this one is exciting. The Birds are in space for iOS, Android, PC and Mac with a whole new set of characters, scenarios and of course, the twisted physics of space. A giant claw kidnaps the birds' eggs and they follow it into a wormhole and they're suddenly in a whole new galaxy. The Angry Birds now also have superpowers of their own. There are 60 new levels in this all new game. The first world is called Pig Bang, the next Cold Cuts, then Eggsteroids. There is also a world called Danger Zone, which is tougher than the other levels. The game has an all new trajectory, which will help you a bit by showing you the path that your bird will use to fly. Also, the pigs rest in bubbles in which the birds behave a little differently than outside.

The big thing to remember is that you're in space in this game. Where in the regular Angry Birds games on this planet, gravity provided some pig smashing services, you're relying mostly on the birds and a little bit on the rocks that the pigs sit on to destroy ham. Also, in some levels, you're no longer tossing the birds from left to right. The first few levels should get you a little more adjusted to the new physics that this game involves.

The Angry Birds Space game was created in collaboration with NASA. Flight Engineer, Don Pettit explains how the space organization worked with Rovio, especially on creating a zero gravity simulated trajectory (watch the video above). Also, in case you missed it, iOS users, regular Angry Birds updated yesterday with a whole new tropical world for you. Angry Birds Rio was also updated with some bonus levels in the Awards section. Check it out.
