To commemorate the launch of Angry Birds Space yesterday, Rovio and T-Mobile teamed up to create the largest Angry Birds Space art installation in the world: a 300 foot tall slingshot and Angry Bird mounted on the Seattle Space Needle. While they didn’t actually launch a bird into space with the contraption, they held events centered around the iconic landmark. Folks were invited to try out the brand new game, take part in giveaways and enjoy Angry Birds Space cupcakes.
Talk about an elaborate launch for a game! In addition to the launch event, Walmart is also giving away “Golden Eggsteroid” clues that unlock four bonus levels in the game. Folks who purchase any T-Mobile Android smartphone with a value plan such as the T-Mobile Monthly 4G $30 Unlimited Web & Text plan will also get access to a special portal in the T-Mobile mall to download the new game and a hint to unlock a hidden golden eggsteroid level, as well as other exclusive extras.
