Angry Birds Space Red Planet Update Out Now

Now that the Curiosity Rover has landed on Mars, we can get a firsthand look at what truly is happening on the Red Planet. Angry Birds Space v1.3.0 has landed for iOS, PC, Mac, and Android via Google Play and Amazon Appstore. Don’t let the descriptions in the video confuse you: Even though Rovio reported (and continues to report) that the planet is “Coming this Fall“, apparently the seasons in Finland are a bit different than elsewhere in the world.

Attention Amazon Users: We have reports that the faultiness of Amazon versions of Angry Birds has continued. Most of our reports are from Kindle users, who are being promoted that installing the new update will remove all previous data. Proceed with caution, or hang tight, or back up your data using our complete guide.

Nonetheless, this is a very welcome surprise! This update includes:

how about a bonus level for feathering all levels in an episode! would be helpful cause sometimes i dont wanna feather all levels because it doesnt bring me anything! a bonuslevel would be a big motivation!

That’s a really great idea @andreas189! A bonus feather for each episode completed with all feathers. The feather can be on the same screen as the 3-star bonus level and any golden eggs.

Between the gravity and the geysers this is a very challenging level to get your birds to go where you need them to. Add in the exploding firebomb asteroids and you’ve got an update that will keep you busy for a long time! And…no power ups! :-)

Maybe they did hear the outcry and are trying to find a solution. I bet they install them eventually, as it is a revenue stream. BUT, the Space Eagle is already a built in money maker.

When we get the final 10 levels I assume there will be an additional Golden Rover level for Curiosity.

Will there be a Golden Rover for Spirit, which was a sister rover to Opportunity and landed at the same time in 2004?

And thinking a few years out, assuming we are all still playing Angry Birds, a new lander was just approved for a 2016 launch to Mars.

I love those hot air geysers because they make a lot of new great puzzles and levels possible, and the new Rover levels.
Hint for PC versions: Go to {the data files}. you can see 4 rovers there, 4th being Curiosity.

I finish all the levels with 3 stars =) Thanks to youtube.com/AngryBirdsNest

By Mike

You know.. it’d be nice if Rovio would make levels not end before ME’s finish.. I’ve lost a lot of eagles because the level didn’t wait for my shot to finish…

Also, what the heck? I was able to get all the feathers on previous episodes very efficiently (1-2 eagles per level). Red Planet seems to be taking WAAAAAAY more. Space ME’s are becoming even more of a money grab? Bleh, disappointing choices are disappointing.

IMO, this was one of the best episodes in any AB game. I thought Back to School was just awful, one of the very worst updates in Rovio’s history, but they definitely regained my confidence with the Red Planet update. The lava asteroids and the geysers are fun, and you can tell that each level is very carefully designed. I’m glad that they’re still putting effort into updates for the mobile apps.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5735 points

I agree. The last one and this update are both much fun.

By elijah

i disagree on back to school sucking i think that update was great the worst update is that piglantis update i think that update was really awful it had no effort put in it and it had nothing to do with summer i love the red planet update but there are 3 flaws one is the name why call it red planet thats just a stupid name the second one is the lava in this update i hate lava it has been in almost evary video game theys days and the last flaw is the new eggsteroid levels i hate them they now are not based on games so i hope the next planet has a better name and adds a new bird white bird and boomerang bird

I was just checking the ABSp mobile page and I was checking the “Meet the Flockers” section and noticed there was something wrong with the bomb bird’s sprite…is it just me or did they mess up? Also, I found a glitch on ABO- On the Daily Spinner when I get King Sling, I get the lock-on powerup. And vice-versa. Is this an issue for anyone else?

Seems minor, but you are welcome to contact Rovio about it. I think that’s how it’s always been.

Rank: Well Traveled with 1960 points

It is minor- I agree. But and issue is still an issue- my guess is that they uploaded one of the earlier sprites of him from before the release on accident.

I’ve seen several pieces of ABSp merchandise with his gray stomach. Doesn’t really bother me.

Rank: Well Traveled with 1960 points
By Doodle Sandwich (@doodle-sandwich)

Same- I just get a notebook for drawing and writing and noticed it after purchase. But still the flame on his head on the mobile version was shrunken. If you have The Daily: Space Guide app and look at the page showing the evolution of the new sprites, you will see the mobile image as one of the steps in beak evolution. And the final image has the red stomach and large flame on his head. I think he has the same issue as the lazer bird where he sometimes wears his cape and other times he doesnt.

Okay, now this is weird. I just updated Space on my Kindle Fire. I figured I would lose my progress, but I hadn’t gotten very far since the last update wiped out my progress anyway :). I now have the Red Planet, but the Space Eagle is gone. Anyone else have this happen on their Kindle Fire?
@burbman, when you get a chance, would you let me know if you still have the Space Eagle? Thanks :).

@wanda – play through the first part of Pig Bang again. Remember, the space eagle does not show up until about level 10 I think?? When it resets all your scores, you have to re-earn the eagle as well.

You’re right, I forgot the Space Eagle wasn’t instantly available. The good news is that I am getting really good at Pig Bang. :). I also enjoy traveling through the wormholes to the eggsteroid levels!

Nice update, the trailer was funny and creepy at the same time.

On a side note, I dislike the fact admins remove some useful things (such are the golden rovers locations by @ncisgrabert) just because “we want to keep them hidden and make players find them themselves”. We’re not a community of “find-out-yourself” players.

I have only one thing that bugs me here: the name. I mean, Red Planet? You could’ve at least called it “Mars” or “Magma Inferno” or something else. And I don’t really know this, but I think most people caught up in these updates forgot about the new AB Philadelphia Eagles game. I almost forgot about it because there were no “Teasers” or “Sneak Peeks” or whatever.

Game Center has the current achievements listed as Danger Zone 1, so I suspect that in the future there will be an extension to the current Danger zone- either a whole other planet or a separation between DZ1 and DZ2 in the same planet.

Update available on Amazon appstore, but wipes out previous progress (Android 2.3), so I’m waiting until they fix this again.
