Angry Birds Space Coming to Windows Phone

Angry Birds is one of the massive hit developed by Rovio. Recently, the developer has released the newest version of its most popular mobile game, Angry Birds Space. There were some earlier reports like the one reported by Bloomberg claiming that the game wasn’t supposed to be developed for Windows Phone handsets.

To your utter surprise, Rovio CEO Mikael Hed said in one of his announcement that the team here is working to bring the game to the Microsoft platform.

While talking to Reuters, Hed said that “We are working towards getting Angry Birds Space to WP7,” discarding all the rumors including yesterday’s Bloomberg report that quoted the Rovio’s “Mighty Eagle” Peter Vesterbacka who said that company had no plans to release Angry Birds to Windows Phone platform.

Hed further added that it was a “big undertaking to support” the new platform as “you have to completely rewrite the application.”

Angry Birds Space launched simultaneously on the App Store, Android, on PC and on the Mac earlier yesterday. Compared to its earlier version, the developer included some new twist in the latest version, introducing new characters and a new physics engine, due to the fact that the new environment introduced in the latest version needs you to use the gravitational pull of the planets to successfully complete the levels.

Moreover, the developer of the games has included a new power-up called Space Eagles, which is awarded for successful progressing during the game, or you can bought through an in-app purchase. The first download will allow you to complete 60 levels of the game, while more levels will be added through game updates.

So far, the game has already been topped the sales charts on many of the platforms, where it launched. We are trying to reach Rovio to have a word on its first day sales. We will get back to you as soon as we receive any response.
