SAN FRANCISCO, March 22 (UPI) -- The Finnish maker of the popular Angry Birds game says its Angry Birds Space sequel is out now for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android, Mac and Windows.

Complete with a NASA tie-in, the new version from game developer Rovio allows players to fling angry birds at the horrible green pig villains in zero gravity, slingshot them around a moon, and even manipulate the gravity of nearby space objects for "trick" shots, PC World reported Thursday.

Owners of iPhones and iPods can buy the game for $0.99 while the cost of the iPad version is $3.

Angry Birds Space is optimized for the new iPad's 2,048-by-1,536 resolution Retina display, but PC World reported some problems playing the game on an original iPad, with continual crashes.

Computer users can also play Angry Birds Space. The Mac App store has it for $5 and Windows computer users can purchase it directly from Rovio for $6.

A free ad-supported version for Android smartphones is available from Google Play, with Rovio saying it is planning a non-ad version for $0.99.
