Angry Birds Space has hit 50 million downloads in just 35 days
Angry Birds has undoubtedly become one of the most popular mobile games of all time, but it looks like the latest version,
Angry Birds Space
, is claiming the top spot for fastest growing mobile game ever.
Rovio announced that Angry Birds Space, which launched last month, has hit 50 million downloads in just 35 days. This breaks all records any previous mobile game has hit, making Angry Birds Space the fastest growing mobile game of all time.
"We extend our deepest gratitude to all fans of Angry Birds everywhere," said Rovio in a statement. "While numbers like this certainly say something about
the popularity of Angry Birds
, for us the main goal is to keep creating fun new experiences that everybody can enjoy! We just launched the first free update for Angry Birds Space, with plenty more surprises in stock."
Rovio brought Angry Birds to space with the help of NASA engineers like Don Pettit.
PC, Mac, iOS and Android users can launch various types of birds at the enemy pigs using a whole new set of moves based on a zero-gravity environment in Angry Birds Space. The new game features 60 levels with six new characters and powers.
In addition to the game's release, toys, books and other merchandise have become available to the public in order to promote the new space venture.

Who would want to play this game specifically made for retards anyway... oh yeah, iSheep users.
And who cares what Woz says,
he's going to say he still prefers the Apple toy. He only helped make the company and still has a stake in it.

Oh i love how Woz says things like:
"I'm just shocked, I haven't seen anything yet that isn't more beautiful than the other platforms"
"I'll be carrying the Windows Phone everywhere."
And has even said (but not quoted on the site):
"apps looks so much better on Windows Phone than on IOS or Android"
But then it's like something clicks in his head reminding him that that he's in the Apple camp. So he's
"Oh yeah... erm... still like my iPhone best. Yep!" *cough*
"This is about the Internet. Everything on the Internet is encrypted. This is not a BlackBerry-only issue. If they can't deal with the Internet, they should shut it off." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
