In this case, that game is Angry Birds Space HD, by Rovio. I personally bought it when it came out and my kids and I have had a blast flinging birds across all the levels in this amazingly creative and interesting take on the original. Now, now you can get it free.
After a giant claw kidnaps their eggs, the Angry Birds chase it into a wormhole and find themselves floating in a strange new galaxy – surrounded by space pigs! Luckily the Angry Birds have super powers of their own…
Angry Birds Space features over 160 interstellar levels on planets and in zero gravity, resulting in spectacular gameplay ranging from slow-motion puzzles to lightspeed destruction.

J.D. Power included 1,857 individuals in the study, individuals who’ve had their tablet for less than a year, and discovered higher scores were given when tablets were shared.
Tablets shared by four or more people averaged a score of 853, whereas tablets used by one individual averaged 824.
J.D. Power senior director of telecommunications services Kirk Parsons:
“It is somewhat unexpected to find that although 64 percent of tablet owners were the sole decision-maker involved in their device purchase, many of them share their tablet with someone else.”
Good news for Apple, 41 percent of shared tablet owners from the study indicated they will buy their next tablet from the same company, while 28 percent of those who don’t share indicated the same.
