Angry Birds Space is the fourth installment of the Angry Birds franchise (behind the original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds Rio.
Unlike most Angry Birds games this has what seems to be a resemblance to a plot. The story begins as the birds are watching over their eggs a black hole appears. The birds decide to investigate as a mysterious bird was flown through the black hole. At the crash site they see the Ice Bird who suddenly jumps out of the ole to protect an "eggsteroid". Suddenly a massive claw come out of the hole and picks up the "eggsteroid" and the Ice Bird goes after it. After finding out the Angry Birds eggs were also taken they go after the claw resulting in a intergalatic chase.
The game play is relativly similar to the main Angry Birds but a new element is introduced: gravity. While gravity has already been a part of the franchise it plays a new role here as birds and other objects are drawn to a planet mid-flight. Another new gameplay mechanic is deep space, pigs in space wear helmets to protect freezing if frozen long enough the pig will eventually pop.
