Angry Birds may not be the center of attention of hardcore gamers these days, but its appeal to the casual gamers remains just as strong as it was a few years back.
Rovio now is teaming up with NASA once again to bring forth Angry Birds latest update. This update will allow players to add 20 new stages to their Angry Birds experience.
With the latest update, players will dodge explosive volcanoes and fire asteroids to combat the sinister piggies, who have hijacked the Curiosity Mars Rover in search of eggs.
The previous game’s Golden Eggs are gone and have been replaced by little rovers who players must land their birds on to open up bonus stages.
The game will include links to NASA Web content about Mars exploration and missions that are represented in the game.
Rovio is teaching huge new audiences about NASA’s missions to Mars thanks to this collaboration,” David Weaver, the associate administrator for communications at NASA Headquarters in Washington, said in a statement. “It’s a great way to introduce both kids and adults to the wonders of the planet in a fun and entertaining way.”
Rovio has also released a new teaser trailer video for the update. Check it out below.
Meanwhile, the actual Mars Curiosity rover started her slow roll across the Martian surface yesterday, inching about 20 feet away from her landing site, which scientists have now named after the late Ray Bradbury.
