Angry Birds Space launch takes over Seattle's Space Needle

Rovio has rung in the Angry Birds launch in style, fitting Seattle's iconic Space Needle structure with a 300 foot tall Angry Birds catapult and space bird

 

Celebrating Thursday’s Angry Birds Space release, developer Rovio has partnered with network provider T-Mobile to install a 300 foot Angry Birds slingshot and red space bird on Seattle’s iconic Space Needle building.

The oversized art installation, which adorned the side of the landmark building, helped promote the launch of the latest Angry Birds offering with those passing by invited to try out the iPhone, iPad, Android, PC and Mac app offering all whilst sampling a host of Angry Birds Space decorated cakes.

Angry Birds Space Features

Claiming to promote learning and physics through play, the new Angry Birds offering sees gamers battling against variable gravity environments in order to deter the familiar band of pesky pigs from stealing the birds’ eggs.

“By taking the game galactic, Angry Birds Space retains the familiar elements of Angry Birds gameplay but gives them a unique twist in a variable gravity environment,” an official Rovio spokesperson said of the new title.

“From the weightlessness of space to the gravity wells of nearby planets, fans can have fun with physics as they try out new gameplay possibilities. The Angry Birds themselves have also transformed into superheroes, with new costumes and abilities.”

Angry Birds Space Platforms

Hitting the key players of the mobile market, Finnish developer Rovio has launched Angry Birds Space for the usual array of Apple iOS and Android smartphones and tablets as well as Mac and PC adaptations of the interplanetary title.

One high-profile omission from the Angry Birds Space platform line-up was Microsoft’s increasingly popular Windows Phone 7 offering. Having originally announced that it would not be making the new Angry Birds offering available for WP7 users any time soon, Rovio quickly back tracked stating: "We are working towards getting Angry Birds Space to WP7."
