Angry Birds Space Premium
It’s Angry Birds….in space. This is the latest spin in the Angry Birds franchise with settings in space complete with backdrops including meteors, stars, and planets. There are tons of new levels and bonus rounds as well.
This amazingly simple game is about a tortoise named Sheldon who is trying to escape a bunch of hares who are trying to trip him up.
