Honestly I've always hated the original Angry Birds, but Angry Birds Space is actually pretty fun in my opinion..

I'm thinking of getting it but if it's not optimised, i might just wait until it is and play through it then.

EDIT: found a couple of reviews that said it was, so I downloaded it and yep it looks awesome on the 3rd gen iPad for anyone else interested.

EDIT 2: so after a while of playing, as nice as it looks, a few levels use enlarged versions of the same images for things such as larger plants and bubbles, and these when enlarged are not optimised for the new iPads higher resolution.

look at the bubbles around the pigs on this level.
Thumb resize.

it doesn't really detract from the game, it's just something i noticed.
yeah its a shame all the images aren't high res.

The whole angry birds thing relies on the sheep mentality.

And that is why it is so popular on iOS

And where iOS leads , the other sheeple on other platforms will follow.

Snowball effect.
This is a RUMOR site For speculation and discussion.Not a Fan-Club. Just because we are interested in Apple rumors it doesn't mean we should be frothing at the mouth with Apple rabid comments.

It is not the same thing. You're talking about universalization of a computer product line which includes various types of computers, while I am talking about universalization of software for two almost identical platforms - in terms of sw development. Many iPhone users have an iPad anyways, so the ones who would take advantage of universalized SW would be iOS users again, right?

To inconsistency.

Mighty Eagle used to be a one-time purchase for 0.99, now you have to pay for a limited number of Mighty Eagles. That's inconsistent and stupid, because now I feel very reluctant to buy the Eagles.

Paying for extra levels is less bad, but it's still quite silly because they have never done that before.

With the popularity they're having, I'm pretty sure they're still making a decent profit. I don't see why they should be making things more complicated now, money-wise.

No. I went and got it for the iPod Touch a long time ago and totally agree with you. While kinda fun, it is a totally mindless game. Not a whole lot going on there, at all. You throw some stuff at some other stuff to kill some birds. OK? This is like a step up from the original Tetris on Nintendo. I don't get the infatuation. I guess people just really need something really repetitive to take their mind off of real life.

Hey, new here!

I personally think it is a little bit of a rip off. I don't know how much Angry Birds cost when it first came out but when I got it, there was tons more stuff out the gate. Like ten full levels with multiple stages in each.

This has like 2 levels.

It's ridiculous. The whole ME3 fiasco showed me how silly gamers can be, but this is definitely a bit crooked. Extra DLC I don't mind, but flaunting content that feels like it should have been included right in my face? When I just bought the game!?

I am not talking about some guy digging through the code to find some little thing that might have been cut out of a full-featured, 30-40 hour adventure. It's right there! Plain as day!

Yeah, it's a little amount but I despise the concept of Micro-transactions deeply. Give me a full game first, then give me extra stuff. Don't nickel and dime on things that should have been there in the first place.

I really liked this game. The original got old fast, but I actually wanted more of this. Still, as much as I like it, there are other things I would rather pay for. I may eventually go against my better judgement, but I am certainly not rushing to do it.

I don't blame them for this either. I blame them for the 20-dollar eagle.
