Angry Birds Space is what happened when Rovio looked at Super Mario Galaxy (and the 500,000,000 other "IN SPACE!!" things that were popular at the time) and said "Pfffft, we can do that!"

Prototype Info

Unused Music


There is an audio file in the demo version named 'bosstest.mp3'. It is a lot different from the final boss theme, sounding a lot more regal and faster. It does not appear to be complete as it loops strangely.


There is a music track called "AB_space_level_menu.mp3" which would've likely been used when selecting a level.


An unused version of the tune that plays when you get three stars, with a drum roll in the background. The final one is split up into three separate sound files for each star.

Unused Sounds

spaceAmbient01 and 02

There are two unused space ambience sounds.


An early version of the ambience from Pig Bang, with a major difference being a short bass track at the beginning.

Black Hole Bird Sounds

There are 4 sounds likely related to the black holes that open when getting an Eggsteroid. Either that or an unused black hole bird/power-up, due to there being a sound titled "blackhole_shot". The latter seems to be proven by the existence of data for an unused bird called Black Hole Bird in the same version.

Alternate Red Yell Sounds

There were 2 sounds titled "redbird_yell02" and "redbird_yell03". They are the same as the used yell sound.

Bird 6 Flying

There is an audio file called "bird_06_flying.mp3", which is a combination of two of the bird idle sounds. In the original Angry Birds, this audio file was a sound from Hal, though for some reason it was changed in Angry Birds Space. Perhaps this was a placeholder sound for Hal, and Angry Birds Space's development had started when this sound was still Hal's launch sound.

Leftovers from Angry Birds

There are many leftover sounds from the original Angry Birds game found in version 1.0.0, which didn't get used in Angry Birds Space.

Ball Bounce

A sound for a ball bouncing. This may be a leftover from the ball objects in Angry Birds.

Balloon Pop

A sound for a balloon popping.

TNT Explosion

There is a leftover sound of the TNT explosion from the first Angry Birds game.



There are 2 leftover sounds of Red being selected and launched.

The Blues

There are leftover sounds of The Blues being selected, launched, and colliding with objects.


There are leftover sounds of Chuck being selected, launched, colliding with objects, and using his power.


There are leftover sounds of Bomb being selected, launched, and colliding with objects.


There are 2 leftover sounds from Angry Birds of Terrence being selected and launched.


There are leftover sounds for Matilda, who doesn't appear in Angry Birds Space.


There are leftover sounds for Hal, who like Matilda, doesn't appear in this game.

Hidden or Off-screen Objects

To do:
  • (All found in PC version) unused space helmets below big dipper and old level select corresponding to pigs placed on planets. *Slingshot with 3 invisible reds under original level select.
  • Pig Dipper bossfight loads saucer far below slingshot before boss is defeated.

There are some objects in levels that are hidden off screen.

Pig Dipper Level Select

Angry Birds Space Pig Dipper Level Select Pigs and Anchor.png

The level select screen for Pig Dipper has 2 pigs in bubbles and an anchor hidden below the first screen.

Unused Birds

There exists data for some unused birds.

Black Hole Bird

Located in version 1.0 is data for a Black Hole Bird. It is strong against wood, and would've likely spawned a black hole that would suck up all blocks and pigs in a small radius for a short period of time. It has references to 2 sprites, being "BIRD_BLACKHOLE_NORMAL" and "BIRD_BLACKHOLE_SPECIAL". Sounds for it seem to exist, which can be seen above. This may have been replaced by the Space Egg power up which was released later.

Homing Bird

In the same version as the Black Hole Bird, there is data for an unused Homing Bird. It likely would've acted like Laser Bird, homing in on wherever is tapped, and it may have been an early version of it. Like Black Hole Bird, it is strong against wood. It has references to 1 sprite, being "BIRD_HOMING_FRAME_1".

Unused Objects

Mario Pipe

To do:
  • Rip the sprite and show gameplay of it at the explained level where it is at in-game.

An unused object based off the warp pipes from the Super Mario series. This object was meant to appear in Eggsteroid 2. The object uses the stone material and has a strength of 30.

Unused Graphics

Development Leftovers

Partial Engine Source Code

To do:
Meaning of pf, Platform Functions?

Four source files likely from the pf namespace of Fusion for the Android platform were left in the package root of version 1.3.1 for Android. Fusion is Rovio's private version of the KA3D engine with lots of modifications.

SVN Remnants

The BlackBerry Tablet version left a .svn subdirectory in the assets directory, with a tiny amount of information about where the app icon and splash screen's assets were from.

Since the version control expects you to be connected to Rovio's internal server, you cannot access the revision history of the repository.




svn:special svn:externals svn:needs-lock






We can get a glimpse of the properties of these files/directories by running a Subversion command such as svn info -R --include-externals in the /assets directory.
NOTE: Since these files are in an older version of the format (format 10), the command svn upgrade has to be executed before the one above if using newer versions of Subversion.

The revision number for these leftovers are 92626.

The revisions of the files in the folder are byte-to-byte identical to the used versions.

Unnamed Script

Versions 1.3.1-1.4.0 HD for iPad, have a script named *.lua in the images directory. It only has roughly just the below content:

filename = "*.lua"

Revisional Differences


The PC version stopped receiving updates as of v2.0.0, the only other distribution source used was Steam as its own version and it ended at v2.1.0.
