Angry Birds Space features 60 interstellar levels, with regular updates planned by Rovio. Gameplay remains the same as in previous Angry Birds games, but the new space setting enables players to use the gravity of nearby planets to set up crazy trick shots.
The blockbuster title also features brand new birds, new superpowers and a whole galaxy to explore, said Rovio.
Angry Birds Space is the Finnish firm's first integrated entertainment launch, with the game accompanied by merchandise, animation and books available from stores.
"This is Rovio at its finest, and we are more than excited to bring Angry Birds Space to all our fans worldwide," said Mikael Hed, the chief executive of Rovio.
"This launch marks a huge step for us as a company, and our whole team and partners have really pulled together to bring out a fantastic array of exciting products and experiences. We hope that our fans will find all things Angry Birds Space as delightful as the Rovio family does."
Angry Birds Space is available now to download for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices, as well as Mac and PC. A retail copy for PC follows shortly.
Rovio said that gameplay has been optimised for all platforms, while the app also supports the high-resolution Retina display in Apple's new iPad, which was released last week.
There will also be content available via in-app purchases, starting with the iOS version, including hidden goodies, secret levels and "cool space content".
Angry Birds Space is available for free with adverts on iOS and Android devices, with an ad-free version costing 69p/$0.99.
Angry Birds Space HD costs £1.99/$2.99 on the iPad and Android tablets. The Mac and PC version is priced at £2.99 in the UK, while in the US the PC version costs $5.95 and the Mac $4.99.
