Just in case you can’t get enough of flinging multicolored birds across your iPad screen in an attempt to destroy evil piggies, you can now get your fix of Angry Birds on Mars!
The Angry Birds Space Red Planet edition, released today, was created as a collaboration between Angry Birds creator Rovio Entertainment and NASA. As such, the new episode will feature a number of NASA missions. Naturally, rover Curiosity had a starring role in the viral video (below) that was posted online early on Thursday.
“Rovio is teaching huge new audiences about NASA’s missions to Mars thanks to this collaboration,” said David Weaver, associate administrator for communications at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “It’s a great way to introduce both kids and adults to the wonders of the planet in a fun and entertaining way.”
It’s also a great way to avoid work, so I’m off to the App Store…
