After teasing us all with a trailer yesterday, Rovio has launched its brand-new Angry Birds iOS app – Angry Birds Space – in Apple’s App Store. You can download a $0.99 version of the app which is natively compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch, or if you’re an iPad-owner, Angry Birds Space HD can be yours for just $2.99.

As outlined in the app’s release notes:

After a giant claw kidnaps their eggs, the Angry Birds chase it into a wormhole and find themselves floating in a strange new galaxy – surrounded by space pigs! Luckily the Angry Birds have super powers of their own…

Features include:

  • 60 interstellar levels!
  • Regular free updates!
  • Brand new birds!
  • Brand new superpowers!
  • Zero-gravity space adventures!
  • Trick shots using planets’ gravity!
  • New in-app purchases!
  • Hidden bonus levels!
  • Beautifully detailed backgrounds!

The app even pays homage to Space Invaders – the first space-themed virtual game – as Jeff of 148apps notes:
