Angry Birds Space needs a big screen

I succumbed and installed Angry Birds Space. After seeing the promo by NASA it was hard to resist. Angry Birds is great time killer for when the day is done and my brain is on vege-mode.

But the latest addition to the franchise is a bit hard on the eyes on my little (um, well, 4.3 inch) screen. It definitely looks like it was made with tablets in mind. There’s so much going on the screen, and there’s a lot more movement in this game. It’s no longer just up and down, the birds are zipping around planets and swinging back in the same direction they came from.

I don’t know if Rovio has admitted this one was made for tablets, but it definitely feels like that’s where it would be best played.
