Fans of the “Angry Birds”, can have less to worry as the latest installment of this very popular game, “Angry Birds Space,” is now available for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices, as well as the Mac and PC.

Owners of Apple’s new iPad will be glad to know that the game supports the new Retina display as well.
