If you’re lucky enough to own one of those sexy Samsung Galaxy Note phablets, you’re about to experience yet more exclusives that the rest of us normal folk won’t. Of course you all remember how Sammy announced a special collaboration with Rovio— aka the makers of Angry Birds— to bring a special edition of the upcoming Angry Birds Space game to the Galaxy Note. If you recall, the special edition of the game was to bring an exclusive level designed specifically for the Galaxy Note and its awesome stylus pen. We’d heard about the special level, but were longing to see how the new level was designed and more importantly— how it played. Hit past the break to see some hands-on time with not only the actual gameplay on the Galaxy Note, but also a brand new cutesy, yet awesome character called Lazer Bird.
The gameplay using the stylus pen looks to be fluid as heck. You’ll notice off the bat there’s a new menu which includes a mini-game in the menu screen where you have the ability to pop all the bubbles in your sight. When you grow tired of that and want to get some real action, you can jump in the level select screen and see there’s a huge allotment of new space levels. You’ll also notice how smooth and effortless it is using the S-pen to aim and control your Angry Bird.
Here you can see the Galaxy Note-exclusive level. You’ll notice right off the bat how rich and detailed the design is as well as the cool use of gravity and physics in order to accurately and precisely hit your target.
You’ll find here the new cool, yet tough character in Lazer Bird. The lavender-colored beast features both “supervision” and “superpower strike”. Sounds like an effective combination to me.
Look for the new game to be formally unveiled within the next few weeks.
