Meet the Birds in Angry Birds Space

Just yesterday, Rovio released their long-awaited official statement regarding the gameplay of Angry Birds Space, which will be arriving on iOS, Android, PC and Mac on March 22nd. (Be sure to check out that post since it contains a bunch of information about the goings-on in space.) Over the next week, Rovio and Samsung will be releasing “Introductory Videos” feature the birds from Angry Birds Space. These videos can be seen as they come online on the official space.angrybirds.com webpage.

Be sure to check back over the coming days to see all the goodies that Rovio has to offer. As a quick disclaimer, any names appearing in quotes are just placeholders for the time being. As the videos are released, the bird names will be finalized. Thanks to @jake for tipping us off about the early release.

Update: On March 14th, “The Daily” published an “Angry Birds Space Guide” app for iOS. It appears to be free, but we are not aware of any other ports at this time. The app itself is rather interesting, featuring behind-the-scenes videos at Rovio HQ. Also within the article is the official bird and pig names. They have been updated below as applicable. (Note: There is a little discrepancy within the video itself, so these names are still subject to change by March 22nd.) We manually note that the super ginormous pig within the “Cold Cuts” world seems to be named “Fat Pig”.

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:

I removed the dates because Rovio removed them and need not honor them.

The last two were supposed to come yesterday, that’s why they got rid of the dates:(

Looks like one per day until the 22nd

Hrm, Rovio removed the dates from the website. I’m tempted to do the same, but I’m not sure.

Good call @slim (can we call you that?)….
Rovio may have removed them for good reason. For example, if the dates are inaccurate or subject to change.
(at least that was my first thought)

is “Lazer Bird” official name confirmed by Rovio?

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

Yes, “Lazer” with a z (even though the correct spelling is laser).

Where did you get the word description of the lazer bird? The video was linked on AB facebook, but not yet on the official AB space web page or on Rovio news????

I wrote it based on the video caption on YT.

It’s going to be a wild one to figure out. I’ll be able to see if device specificity is going to be an issue. I just bought an iPad, so I’ll be trying out Android vs. iOS vs. PC.

Yeah, I just drafted a post but my brain is utterly fried. I’m turning it over to BirdLeader from here.

That episode is called “Eggsteroids”. I can’t see the total number of levels via the episode selection screen, but I see 6 in gameplay.

We will have this post online shortly. My apologies for not being able to finish it, but I’m around 40 hours without sleep.

Plus, I don’t know if this is important but Samsung also gave another video too.

I reckon the bird with ice on top of his head is a “freezer bird”,just like the ice bomb in Crush the Castle,which turns castle parts into ice. It gives off a FROSHH–! too.

Will ‘Lazer Bird’ be the one like ME, available via in-app purchase along with ‘Danger Zone’ level pack?

The following article on The Verge says:

The Samsung-exclusive content includes a Galaxy Note-branded level, the game’s first 30-level DLC pack for free, and an exclusive weapon: the Lazer Bird.

Hrm, I think that may be worded incorrectly, but we will have to see. I have seen nothing to imply that the Lazer bird will NOT be universally available.

A correction: the Lazer Bird will be available for all platforms and the levels as well…

Spamming protection based on your earlier (deleted) comments.

By Zarko

So, no preview of another bird today?

Also, question for those of you who play AB on iOS – do you prefer to play it on iPhone/iTouch or iPad? I’ve played the current games on my iPhone but really contemplating getting ABSpace on iPad purely due to screen size and in hope that I will be able to sync the progress one day with my iPhone.

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

Not that we have found.

I prefer iPad, though I originally played on 3GS. You can transfer the data between iOS devices using our process

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17095 points
By burbman (@burbman)

@Slim – when you transfer progress between devices, does it take the higher of the two scores, or does it just replace the scores that have been achieved on the target device with the source?

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

Pure replacement for each app. So say I wanted to move my Seasons data from iPad to iPhone: Anything that was ever done on my iPhone gets replaced with my iPad progress.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17095 points
By burbman (@burbman)

Ah, I think I will leave my various devices alone then, since they all get played on a regular basis. Thanks!

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17095 points
By burbman (@burbman)

I prefer playing on the tablet. It is easier to see where you want the bird to go, unfortunately, it is also easier to see how badly you missed the intended target.
