Iranian group accuses 'Angry Birds Space' of being latest weapon in cyber war

An Iranian video gaming group is protesting what they call anti-Iranian levels in Rovio's popular sequel Angry Birds Space, and say the game is the latest volley in a soft war against their country. The Iran Computer & Video Games Foundation sent a letter to Finnish developer Rovio this week objecting to what the organization calls the game's use of anti-Iranian levels in "Fry Me to the Moon." According to the translated letter, the planet featured in levels nine and ten of the expansion pack, feature a planet shaped suspiciously like the country. Level ten features a structure that looks a lot like Milad Tower, the tallest tower in the country.

'Angry Birds Space' update adds 20 sweet levels and a boss fight

The newest update for Angry Birds Space adds 20 levels and a new boss battle, Rovio announced today. The new levels are similar to the food-based ones on the planet Utopia introduced in May's update. Earning three stars on all of them will unlock ten bonus levels. The boss battle pits the birds against a larger-than-average green pig and introduces a new piece of artillery, the egg-firing Space Egg. Rovio has also introduced the Orange Bird into the game, who inflates upon impact and can destroy structures from the inside out. Angry Birds Space is available now on iPhone, iPad, and Android.

In a press release that will likely surprise just about no one, Rovio has announced that Angry Birds Space has become the fastest-growing mobile game ever released. In 35 days, the game has been downloaded over 50 million times. As a point of comparison, it took OMGPop's Draw Something three-and-a-half months to reach that same number.

Angry Birds Space: Why you should be playing right now

The Angry Birds series is an easy target, especially for hardcore gamers. It is, after all, capable of appealing to the most casual non-gamers on the planet. Add in the cute graphics and you're a far cry from Call of Duty. And yet, there are some very hardcore gaming tenets at play here. High scores, perfecting strategy, resource management. It may be hidden in a veneer of adorable birds, but this is very clearly a gateway game. And the next step after you've passed through the gateway? Angry Birds Space, which released today for PC, Mac, iOS and Android. Once again, hardcore gamers will be quick to mock. Space is, after all, well-worn sequel territory for movies and games. But there's far more at play than just a background palate swap in Angry Birds Space. There's some excellent game...
