Avid fans of Rovio’s Angry Birds franchise have a new version of their favorite avian puzzler to download on the Mac – Angry Birds Space 1.3.0, which puts the piggies on the fourth planet from the Sun.
Rovio says the Angry Birds team up with NASA to bring fans “the most epic episode yet!” Already available on iPhone and iPad, the new version features the piggies hijacking the Curiosity Mars Rover, “but instead of searching for ice crystals, they're looking for eggs!” No surprise there.
The new episode features 20 levels on the red planet, plus two antenna egg levels as a bonus.
Players are tasked with dodging explosive volcanoes and fire asteroids, and they must also find three hidden rovers and landers to open additional bonus levels. The boss piggy is a new astronaut pig (naturally) and the game has a few insights on NASA’s actual mission on Mars.
