Angry Birds Space is just like every other Angry Birds game on the market. You use a slingshot to fire the birds across the level with the goal of defeating the well-fortified pigs. The game does differentiate itself from the original as it takes place entirely in outer space and involves launching the birds in zero gravity or into/through gravitational fields. There are a few new bird types, but otherwise the game plays and feels the same. There is around 150 levels to play, split across six different worlds. Currently the game is listed at $0.99 in the Windows Phone Store.
Step 1: Play until you earn 250 stars
Play through the game until your reach 250 stars. To make this go quickly, use 3-star video walkthroughs. If you can't get 3-stars on a particular level, just move on. You should also progress at least until level 5-19, as this will give you access to all the best levels for grinding some of the later achievements.
Step 2: Mop-up miscellaneous achievements
After finishing Step 1, mop-up any of the miscellaneous achievements you have left, which are those that require you to only complete a small task once in any level.
Step 3: Grind remaining cumulative achievements
After Steps 1 and 2, you will have many many hours of grinding left to earn the remaining achievements, the worst of which involves destroying a mind-numbing 500,000 blocks.
Angry Birds Space is nothing more than a boring grind to complete. There is no thinkable reason to have an achievement for destroying 500k blocks, something that will take upwards of 50+ hours to do when grinding, and probably 200+ hours to do if playing naturally. With that said, the other 190
can be earned in about 10-15 hours (plus some unattended idling time).
MISCELLANEOUS ACHIEVEMENTS (5 for 50
The following 5 achievements are obtained by completing one-time miscellaneous tasks within the game.
Name Popper - 10
Pop all name bubbles in the credits
From the Main Menu, click the Options button in the lower left corner (icon is a gear) and then click in "i" icon to bring up the credits. All you have to do is tap every name bubble in the entire credits to unlock the achievement. You can manually scroll the credits to make it go faster. The small vegetable bubbles can be ignored.
Centripedal Force - 10
Shoot a bird into a Lagrangian point
A Lagrangian point is basically a spot in space that has gravitational fields acting on it equally in such a way that there is no net force. Basically it is a place that you can shoot the bird that it will get stuck in two overlapping gravitational fields. You will most certainly get this without even trying while collecting all the stars.
A good spot to earn this is Level 1-10. Just fire the bird as slow as you can right down the middle and it should get stuck. It will take a few tries to get the speed slow enough and the angle perfect. Thanks to I Spiritus I from TA for this method.
Three Hog Night - 10
Freeze 3 pigs with one ice bird
Ice birds are light blue in color and freeze everything around them when they explode. This achievement is most easily earned on Level 2-23. Fire your first bird (ice bird) to the large tower containing 6 pigs, arching him through the gravitational fields. Just before he lands, tap the screen to explode the bird, freezing the pigs in the area. You should have no problem getting three or more pigs with a well-placed shot.
Big Spook - 10
Make 6 pigs scared with one green bird
This achievement is quite tricky as the range on the green bird's scream which scares the pigs is not that large, meaning you have to use it very close to all 6 pigs to be able to unlock this achievement. The best level to earn this on is Level 5-3. Aim the green bird at about the second level from the bottom, and tap to release the screen just before you hit it. If done correctly, you will unlock the achievement right away. Thanks to zszaiss for this method!
Alternative Method: Level 2-18. Use your first green bird to knock some of the stone blocks off the top of the largest, middle tower. They need to fall in such a way that none of the pigs are killed. Then, with your second green bird, basically just fire it the same location so that it arcs in between the middle tower and the farthest tower (the stones you knocked down with the first shot makes this possible). Right before he makes any impact and you are near the two groups of 3 pigs, tap the screen to make the bird scream. Thanks to DarkxMaterials on TA for this method.
Banging Heads - 10
Pop pig with another pig
This achievement unlocks when one pig falls into another pig and pops it. You will definitely unlock this achievement without even trying when going for 250 stars.
