Red Planet Update Takes The Angry Birds To Mars!

It was fun to see Rovio working with NASA to promote Angry Birds Space and it looks like they're trying to keep that going. Yesterday, Rovio revealed the latest episode/update to the game and considering how caught up everyone is with Curiosity lately, Mars seems like the perfect location for new levels.

Here's the official announcement from Rovio's blog:

The piggies have hijacked the Curiosity Mars Rover -- but instead of searching for ice crystals, they're looking for eggs! Dodge explosive volcanoes and fire asteroids as you blast through 20 fiery levels! Say hello to the brand new astronaut pig! And find three hidden rovers and landers to open special bonus levels and discover more about the NASA missions!

The update is available on Android and iOS right now, but before you head over to your preferred app store or update menu and get the download started watch this video starring NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover!
