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.

Y'know, I was sitting on a customer call once with a couple of my software developers. We asked our customer to do something with their system so they were away from the phone for almost 20 minutes while we were sitting there waiting.
So I whipped out my cell phone & fired up Angry Birds Rio without turning the sound off or muting my landline headset. Next thing I see is one of the devs pinging me on our internal group chat...
"Are they playing angry birds?"
