The game takes place in "60 interstellar levels" which are all space themed but differ slightly by zone and stage. Each level shows the classic Angry Birds gameplay of using a slingshot to fire a variety of birds in an attempt to destroy the green pigs. Once each level is finished you are given a three star rating based upon your score. The main gameplay innovation is the inclusion of planetary gravity in a similar way to Gravity Wars.
On February 17th, 2012 a new site was released at: www.angrybirds.com/space with a teaser video and wallpaper. Then after two more teasers there was an official announcement on March 8th, 2012 showing an updated website and a video that featured NASA astronauts.
When the game was released worldwide on March 22, 2012 it went straight to number 1 on the iOS App Store.
