Massive Angry Birds Space Update Includes Orange Bird, Bonus Levels & Much More

We’re excited to announce the biggest Angry Birds Space update to date is now available for iOS, PC, Mac, and Android via Google Play (Android Market) and Amazon (read the note about this below) with other platforms coming online soon.

Amazon Users: Many users are reporting that this update deletes their existing progress. Proceed with caution! and possibly turn off automatic updates for right now. Before updating be sure to backup your progress. For help with that you can check out our Ultimate Angry Birds backup tutorial (Android can be a bit trickier to backup, but it is doable).
Further Update: As of 9 August, it appears that Rovio and Amazon have solved this issue. We still encourage you to backup your data, just to be safe, but all seems to be well again.

This (v1.2.2) update includes a bunch of goodies, which we’ve broken down below:

  • 20, yep 20!, brand new levels in Utopia!
  • Ten bonus “Space Egg” levels unlocked for each 10-levels you 3-star (basically, one per page of levels)! That is, if you 3-star levels 1-1 through 1-10 of Pig Bang, you unlock Bonus Egg S-1. So to date, there are 3 bonus levels in Pig Bang, 3 in Cold Cuts, 1 in Fry Me to the Moon, and 3 in Utopia. Sorry, none in Danger Zone, which is sort of expected since it is not universally available.
  • Orange Bird! He has a cool new outfit, but his behavior is pretty much identical to the other apps. Sorry, no backstory into how he made it into Space, but we are glad he’s here! It’s also neat to see how he flails about after deflating. Space isn’t going to be kind to the newest member of the flock.
  • Antenna Egg! The shoot-able “Antenna Egg” vaporizes and explodes surrounding items and is available in the bonus “Space Egg” levels. From what we can tell it seems to be quite powerful., so proceed with caution.
  • 2 new Golden Eggsteroids! Be sure to check out our complete Eggsteroids guide, which will be updated soon.
  • 3 new achievements in Game Center, so be sure to check out our Angry Birds Space achievements page.
  • Update: The Score Addict achievement thresholds for Pig Bang and Cold Cuts have been raised to reflect the three “bonus” levels added to these episodes. We have updated the achievements page and leaderboards to reflect this change. Note that if you had already earned the achievement, it will not be taken away from you.
  • Boss fight! We assume that this takes place in the last level of Utopia and may be against the “Fat Pig”

The Space Eagle is Now Available for Amazon Users!

Android user are now able to purchase the Space Eagle and Danger Zone via the Amazon Appstore! Everything seems to be similar to the Google Play release of these features in v1.2.1, so definitely check out that post for details. Between that release post and our fantastic Space Eagle guide, we should be able to answer every question you have about these features.

Helpful links:

  • Our 3-star walkthroughs for the bonus “Space Egg” levels! Some of these levels are really challenging. You can also add your scores for these levels to our leaderboard (note, each “Space Egg” level appears in its respective chapter).
  • Utopia 3-star walkthroughs are live as well! Not to be left out, there are some really hard levels with high thresholds, so don’t be affraid to check them out. They are great fun though!
  • The Angry Birds Space Utopia leaderboard is ready for your scores.
  • The Complete Golden Eggsteroids guide has been updated with the two additional Eggsteroids.
  • Lastly, check out the achievements page for the three new achievements.

A big thanks to everyone who commented about this update. I actually check my phone before I even rolled out of bed. Now that is dedication! Enjoy some complimentary imagery from this awesome update while we work on getting everything online!

Yes. According to the pictures on Google Play, the boss (Fat Pig) is the size of a planet.

This evening?! I’ve been behind the curve since I switched devices last month!!! It’s all good, though, as this new update will keep me flinging for a long time to come. Heck, once Rovio finally delivers on the remaining S&T levels for AB:o, I can happily sink into nirvana….

But for now, gotta roll…

@TruckDriver-same here. I had to do a factory reset on my android about a month ago so I lost all my progress. I was a little aggravated at 1st. I kept a spreadsheet on my computer of all my scores for AB Original, AB Seasons, AB Rio and AB Space. So I’m having fun playing them and trying to beat my highscore before the reset. I don’t remember playing some of these boards. AB Space was the 1st game after I reset my phone that I started and completed with 3 stars on every level. In my opinion, AB Space is now my favorite AB game.

Are you sure there are 3 new eggsteroids? I only found two, and based on the number of stars for that category, that should be it.

Lots of fun, but there are some very tough levels.

Rank: Fling King with 4400 points
By lostgreybird (@lostgreybird)

I think there are only 2 because the star total is 24. At first glance I was under the impression there were way more than 3 because I forgot Eggsteriod levels were 3 stars too

By Takacs David

yep, star counter gives you information about the number of eggsteroids. I just want that samsung eggsteroid

Antenna Egg is incredibly weak upon impact but pulls debris towards it turning them into projectiles at extreme velocity. For example one of the levels you activate it over stone and it throws it upwards into floating pigs. Very, very cool new addition.

It has been stated many times that Rovio designs their games for mobile devices then they need to port them over to others.

And Android is hardly first “always”.

Rank: Debriefed with 1390 points
By concretebrunette (@concretebrunette)

Indeed, it is often iOS devices first. And then sometimes it’s the stores that have the delay, not “Angry Birds” itself. Like the previous Space update…did it EVER make it to Amazon? I actually went & paid for Space a second time in Google, just so I wouldn’t have to deal with Amazon needing a wifi connection (not easily found out here in the boonies) to download updates (that it struggled to get). So, there’s always SOME platform that drags with each update.

Amazon got Utopia, but still waiting on Danger Zone and the Space Eagle. I will need to check on this update when I get home. Fingers crossed for DZ!

Played one of the bonus levels with the Antenna Egg, obtained three stars but not quite sure how it operates. Seems to have two different modes. Maybe subject material for a lesson from AMslimfordy.

I pretty much think of it as a backwards black bomb bird, except with no penetrating force.

Rank: Sling God with 26055 points

I think it looks more like a mini wormhole that attracts everything around it.

Winner! I like gravity bomb!

Rank: Gold Flinger with 9660 points
By Dr. Omega (@dr-omega)

He explodes in a black hole, leaving a gravity well in his wake that pulls anything toward it (pigs, debris, etc.)

No backstory yet, but I’m wondering if he’s a baby Space Eagle?/

By Takacs David

actually, there is only 1 mighty eagle, and also just 1 space eagle(offically)but you can summon them multiple times… but eggs might hatch someday…

Rank: Gold Flinger with 9660 points
By Dr. Omega (@dr-omega)

Incorrect. The Mighty Eagle is a singular creature, but the in-game description refers to them as Space Eagles (plural): “Stuck on a tricky level? Looking for a new challenge? Unleash the Space Eagles!”

By Takacs David

it says space eagles cause you can use them several times in one level. but there is only 1 space eagle that exsist

Rank: Fling King with 4540 points
By Hidayat1999 (@hidayat1999)

But they did say “Space Eagles travels in flock”, so maybe the birds arrive in space and at the same time the Space Eagles are migrating through another dimension.

I’m am just getting started working through the new levels. @amslimfordy…Is there a particular place you would like us to post with help finding the three star threshold? I mean would you like us to psot any of that here or in a new forum or just wait for walkthroughs?

I have a Nook Color and have grown accustomed to waiting a long time. Last year I was waiting months for updates. It seems that they are more on top of their apps since the Nook Tablet came out though. I don’t even play on my NC anymore because of the wait. Its really too bad.

When updates came and I play for a while I have noticed something. There is no ,,Cominh soon” or anything else. I wonder is there will be the last update for Space? Is Rovio is going to have some rest for a while, because they will make a new game? But for now I will have some good time with these new levels :)

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

I highly doubt this is the end of Space. They don’t typically have “Coming Soon” for an additional episode. (Yes, they did previously in Space, but it has never existed in other apps, so I don’t find it bizarre.)

Refer to Rovio’s FAQ. You will need to update your drivers.

And, if you have your Video drivers CD/updated driver file, install it.
