There’s no denying that Rovio’s Angry Birds remains at the forefront of the consumer’s mind when discussing videogames. It’s a huge franchise, and one that has fans in every corner of society. So it comes as little surprise to find that the launch of Windows Phone 8 is accompanied by the arrival of a new Angry Birds title on the Windows Phone format.
Angry Birds Space features one hundred and fifty interstellar levels on planets and in zero gravity, resulting in gameplay ranging from slow-motion puzzles to lightspeed destruction. Delivering that familiar Angry Birds experience with these brand new principles, Angry Birds Space rounds-off it’s generous package with the promise of regular free updates, new birds, new superpowers, and a whole galaxy to explore; it seems that the sky is no longer the limit.
Angry Birds Space marks the launch of a new and rather unwelcome trend in which the marketplace will be divided, as Rovio’s hugely popular title becomes the first Xbox LIVE enabled Windows Phone videogame not compatible with Windows Phone 7 handsets. Angry Birds Space is available for Windows Phone 8 devices only, priced at £0.79 GBP, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest Xbox branded titles launching for Windows Phone devices.
