NASA and Rovio Gamers Create Angry Birds Space

For nearly three years, millions of gamers have used physics in the battle between birds and pigs in the video game Angry Birds. In cooperation with NASA, Finland-based Rovio Entertainment, creator of the Angry Birds franchise, announced its newest game, “Angry Birds Space,” on Thursday, March 8. NASA and Rovio are working together to teach people about physics and space exploration through the internationally successful puzzle game. You can download the game beginning March 22, 2012.

Game developers have incorporated concepts of human space exploration into the new game. From the weightlessness of space to the gravity wells of nearby planets, players use physics as they explore the various levels of the game set both on planets and in microgravity.

“This collaboration began with a simple Twitter exchange about birds and pigs in space, and it has grown into a tremendous outreach and education opportunity,” said David Weaver, associate administrator for communications at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “Games are fun and entertaining, but they also can be inspirational and informative. This ongoing collaboration with Rovio and Angry Birds is an exciting way to get people engaged with NASA’s missions of exploration and discovery, and get students energized about future careers in science and technology.”

Angry Birds Review

At my tablet, my first game downloaded was Angry Birds, from Rovio Mobile.  I glad a lot and enjoyed many times.

What does it take to make an addictive game? Not much -- just throw in some super simple controls, cute graphics, and basic physics. Rovio Mobile's Angry Birds is one such game that includes all these elements, and today the studio's just released a public Android beta to cater those without an iOS, webOS or Maemo 5 device. In case you're not already familiar with the popular title, the backstory is that a gang of hungry pigs snatched away some eggs from the birds, forcing the feathered creatures to embark on a rescue mission for the sake of their survival. The gameplay on the Android version is just as simple as before: in each level you use a fixed slingshot to fling the birds -- one at a time -- into the forts, in order to kill all the pigs inside. As a secondary challenge, you must also attempt to get a three-star rating depending on the amount of structural material you destroy, so the key is to perfect your shooting angle.

At the beginning you're only given one type of bird that does nothing more than just headbutting, but throughout the game you'll come across six more birds, each possessing one special power: multiply, explode, accelerate, dropping egg bombs, boomerang, and extra strength. Don't worry, the instructions are pretty clear when you first meet these enhanced kamikaze birds -- most involve just a single tap anywhere to trigger their special abilities mid-flight. Once you get the hang of it, you'll soon be wanting to try out all sorts of trajectories to take vengeance on those cheeky green hogs. Seriously, the pigs really do laugh at you when your birds miss them.

Rovio partners with DreamWorks for The Croods game on iOS, Android

Here's some fresh news from the Rovio stable. The Finnish gaming studio is all set to launch a new game in association with DreamWorks Animation called The Croods, which is expected to reach iOS and Android on March 14th.

Sharing his thoughts on this partnership, Petri Jarvilehto, EVP of Games at Rovio Entertainment said, "DreamWorks Animation's The Croods is filled with wonderful characters and creatures in an incredibly detailed, inventive world - it was just begging for its very own mobile game! It's been an incredible experience having our two teams working closely together on extending the story to mobile platforms."

The Croods is an upcoming 3D animated movie from DreamWorks Animation, SKG Inc set to release on March 22 2013. It narrates the story of the world's first caveman family that sets out on a road trip adventure. The family is said to be moving beyond the Stone Age era with the use of a new r-evolutionary tool: the IDEA!

The film will star voice overs from actors like Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman.

"Rovio set the industry standard in mobile gaming with Angry Birds, and we believe their massive community of active users will go wild for The Croods," said DreamWorks Animation's Head of Global Interactive, Chris Hewish. He further added, "We've developed a close and collaborative relationship with Rovio in which our world class filmmakers created an incredible piece of custom animation on the home screen that introduces players to the game's beautifully rich aesthetics."

From the images, the game seems to be strategy-based combining elements of Farmville and Pokemon, especially looking at the different creatures.
