Rovio splashes out on watery update to Angry Birds Space

10 Jan 2013

Thirty new water-themed levels known collectively as Pig Dipper are inhabiting the Angry Birds Space galaxy in Rovio’s latest update to the game.

“This bizarre galaxy is filled with water planets, strange aquatic life and worst of all – Bad Piggies in boats!” Rovio wrote in a post on its blog.

“Use the unique physics of these water planets to set up some fun trick shots and send the birds careening through water. And get ready for the ultimate underwater boss level! We’ve also got three brand-new power-ups with their own leaderboards.”

The new power-ups include Flock of Birds, Space Egg, Ice Bird and Pig Puffer, and Rovio advises gamers to be sure to check out how Ice Bird and Pig Puffer react to water.

The Pig Dipper update to Angry Birds Space is now available on iOS and Android. The update will be added to other platforms soon, Rovio said.
