"Angry Birds Space" (iOS, Android, PC and Mac) is the first true sequel to the biggest-selling mobile game of all time. And it offers just enough new features and modifications, while still retaining the same game play to make it worth the absurdly low price (99 cents for iPhone and Android).

You still use your slingshot to whip those spiteful birds at the fragile green pigs, but this time, planetary gravity plays a role in swinging your birds into an orbit before crash landing.

It’s a fun and addictive concept, though it doesn’t really require strategy so much as a lot of trial and error.
