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.

It has been silly for a long time.

I love that games has become widespread acceptable but I hate how it's a stupid games that everywhere. It sucks for the people missing out and it sucks when people think that I as a gamer has been spending time on crap like that.

I hope the Angry Bird people feel a little ashamed instead of just being happy for all the money they made.
