Courtesy of both Samsung and SXSW, we have our first real glimpse at full-fledged gameplay in Angry Birds Space. As we reported in the official announcement, the first two episodes are called “Pig Bang” and “Cold Cuts”. Each episode will contain 30 levels and will be included at launch.
But wait, there’s more!
There will be a third episode called “Danger Zone” featuring 30 extremely challenging — brainteaser-like — levels. According to Samsung, this episode will be available as an in-app purchase (for which platforms is unclear at this time). Samsung Galaxy users will be able to access this episode free for 3 months from launch date and there will be an exclusive level, which you can see in the video below.
But wait, there might be even more!
Check out the SXSW demo below and you’ll see what looks to be a fourth episode called “Eggsteroids”. It appears this episode will be included at launch as well; though, I can’t see the episode selection screen well enough to make out the total number of levels (there are at least six). The developers got to have a bit of fun with this episode, as we see one level resembling old Super Mario Bros gameplay. If I was a betting man, I’d say this would also be an in-app purchase, or it could be analogous to the “Golden Eggs” episode of ABo.
So all told we’ve now seen four episodes: Pig Bang, Cold Cuts, Danger Zone, and Eggsteroids. Again, we don’t know what will exactly be available at launch — nor do we know exactly what will be free and what will be available as in-app purchase — but who cares, there will definitely be a lot of value packed into Angry Birds Space.
