Angry Birds Space Gameplay Footage

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.

If you just can’t get enough of Angry Birds Space?  Check out these other fine articles, each containing some awesome tidbits about what is to come:

The SXSW demo below shows some of the amazing gameplay first hand.

Here are some screenshots of some of the forthcoming goodness!

Yay! The “Danger Zone” levels really look mind-boggling, and it did too for that Rovio employee too!

I wonder how are we going to get access to the bonus levels in other platforms since they said that in-app purchase will be available only in iOS (and maybe Android Samsung Galaxy as it seems?).

However, the AB Space footage is really cool! :-)

Yes, but Rovio specifically and only references iOS:

For iOS it’ll be a paid app, then why will there be a separate in-app purchase for level pack? For Android it makes sense as it will be a free app (with Ads) at Android Market (Google Play) and they’ve recently introduced in-app purchases on Android.

I don’t mind paying for something like ME but I surely don’t like paying for more levels.

P.S. I know the picture is not clear at this point and I’m not even blaming anyone but it’s just a thought.

As an answer also to your previous reply, Android in-app purchases are here for some time now (if you check the link you provided above, is one year old). Still no Mighty Eagle however, in any of their 3 games, which means that something is still problematic for them…

And in their official announcement for Space they explicitly say that in-app purchases will be iOS only which does not make much sense now that in Samsung Galaxy users will also be able to purchase (?) the bonus levels after the 3 months.

Probably it’s soon to clearly tell, indeed! :-)

I think that the Samsung Galaxy users will already have those features or extra levlels loaded in them.

Yes but only for three months according to the second video from the post above… That’s why I assume that they will be given the option to buy them after these three months.

Rank: Master Slinger with 6960 points
By iamMighty (@iammighty)

So it seems that during these 3 months, the guys at Rovio and Samsung are going to be working over to solve this problem. As well as for PC and Mac, this seems a mystery though.

You’ve got a point. Rovio did plan for their own in-app purchase viz. ‘Bad Piggy Bank’ but we haven’t heard about any development in it from quite some time now.

I hope that the Bad Piggy Bank and the in-app purchase is coming to Android with this new game! And so the Bad Piggy Bank and the in-app purchase come to ABO, ABS and ABR!

Amazon already has in-app purchases, so I don’t get why amazon doesn’t have the ME or other in-app purchases.

I once wrote Amazon to inquire about the Mighty Eagle. Iam sure the answer would be the same for all in app purchases. Here is the respose I received: Hello Kevin,

Its great to hear there are fellow Angry Birds Fans out there!

Unfortunately, we don’t know when/if the Amazon Appstore will be allowed licensing for the Mighty Eagle update. Your best bet is to contact the developers, Rovio in this case and see what there plan is. For your convenience I’ve provided the information below:

wont the level scores end with a 0 anymore cause in the extra level video in the end it says higscore 62945! and another question, so it is possible that ios users must pay for the danger zone extra?!
how likely is it that there comes a free version?!
and any rumours/news about updates for the free versions right now? (abriofree, abseasonsfree)
sorry if any of these questions has already been asked/answered!

Rank: Master Slinger with 6740 points

Yes, we can’t rule out freemium app possibility and in-app purchase for more level packs, enhancement etc. but I wish for a paid app for iOS with no Ads or nothing distracting the gameplay.

Rank: Sling God with 32120 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

–I’ll ask Rovio about the level scores. I’m hoping they all end in 0, but that video is a little disturbing (from point of view of our leaderboards).
–Danger Zone for iOS seems to be an IAP.
–A “trial” version has not been rumored, but is indeed possible.
–Haven’t heard anything.

In gameplay video embedded above, ‘Sling Scope’, one of the Power-up from facebook is present by default.

My guess: As People are not familiar with zero and low-gravity situations, it will help them aim better.

So ios user have to pay again to get Danger Zone? Any clue how much ABS will be?
I’m confused about the purple bird, What direction does it go when you tap the screen?
What’s with the counter at the bottom middle of the screen?

A lot of this is speculative at the moment, so it’s hard to say. My guess is pricing will be very similar to as it is now.

I realized that when Angry Birds Seasons came to the Ipod, the PC version wasn’t released for a very long time, but now it was finally released?
