Angry Birds Space app for Windows 8 now available

Lost in the fuss over the launch of Windows 8 news we overlooked this the other day. Angry Birds in space is now available in the Microsoft Store.

Can you be an “app store” without at least on version of Angry Birds being present? If that’s the yard stick then many will breathe a sigh of relief to see the game pop into the store right from launch day!

Featuring over 130 levels set in space this time, the latest addition to the series continues to captivate folks who have a love of all things birdy and piggy and spacey.  Listed amongst the features they have clearly listed “Regular free updates” which certainly sounds appealing. Those of us who had it on Windows Phone were slightly put out that no free updates arrived for that, so we’ll be happy to see Rovio make good on their promise for Windows.

Heres whats they have to say about the game:-

After a giant claw kidnaps their eggs, the Angry Birds chase it into a wormhole and find themselves floating in a strange new galaxy – surrounded by space pigs! Luckily the Angry Birds have super powers of their own...Angry Birds Space features over 130 interstellar levels on planets and in zero gravity, resulting in spectacular gameplay ranging from slow-motion puzzles to lightspeed destruction. With regular free updates, brand new birds, brand new superpowers, and a whole galaxy to explore, the sky is no longer the limit!

Sound like your cup of tea? You can head along to the Windows Store and grab yourself a copy but they don’t appear to be offering a trial version of the app. It will work on Intel and ARM based machines so if you bought a Surface then you won’t be left out. Download Link
