Angry Birds Space launches on Android, still free, with ads

Rovio has launched the latest Angry Birds spin-off today, with the all-new Angry Birds Space now available on Google’s Play Store. The game continues to see developer Rovio using the ad-supported model on Android, with the title launching for free for Google devices – while it’s a paid release on iTunes for Apple users.

Odd that there still isn’t a paid/no-ads option on Android at all. Here it is, with ads on display, which kind of ruin the ATMOSPHERE a little bit:

We said atmosphere. Because it’s in space. Angry Birds Space is on Google’s Play Store here. It’s a 22.8MB download.

UPDATE:
Rovio’s now published Angry Bird Space Premium, a paid version that removes the adverts in return for 63p. Thanks to Bry for the spot.

    There’s an ad-free version in the Amazon Appstore, which will presumably make its way to other stores once an exclusive is over.

    I turn off data connection when playing and the ads don’t pop up.

    There is an “Angry Birds Space Premium” app on the market – 63p

    In the interests of science, I’ll take the plunge and see if it removes the ads (there’s no difference in the Play Shop descriptions)…

      Oh yes, that wasn’t there this morning.
