Angry Birds Space becomes ‘fastest growing mobile game’ ever

Angry Birds Space becomes ‘fastest growing mobile game’ ever
If you thought Angry Birds Space’s 10 million downloads in three days was impressive, you’ll really blown away to know that it hasn’t stopped there. After 35 days out in the wild, Angry Birds Space has amassed a staggering 50 million downloads, making it the “fastest growing mobile game” ever. WOO-HOO-HOO-HOOOOOO!

The 50 millions downloads are comprised of iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Mac, and PC downloads. Just image if it was available for Windows Phone too, they would have at least 65 or 67 more downloads. We kid, we kid! Windows Phone is an up-and-comer that could of easily added a few million more to those totals. Rovio has previously said the Windows Phone version is in the works; while they haven't announced a release date, when it finally gets released, it will most likely propel Angry Birds Space into new record setting heights once again.

In a blog post, Rovio said,
Angry Birds Space becomes ‘fastest growing mobile game’ ever
This has been simply amazing, and the whole Rovio team is thrilled to see such a fantastic reception for the game.

We extend our deepest gratitude to all fans of Angry Birds everywhere. 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!

Rovio should make another game aside from Angry Birds. Too repetitive and mainstream.

I wil eventually get a windows phone when they can have better phones on windows 8. The thing is it's really fast on a single core if Microsoft makes it flow well on duel and quad core it is going to eventually be on amazing operating system. Its like having windows OS ofer Ubuntu. More polished and easier to use

I don't get what's so great about Angry Birds, sure it's fun for the first few stages but after that it's just repetitive and boring...Not to mention the spinoffs (Rio, Seasons, Space)

Hey Charlene respect the visitors of your site instead of kidding.
I mean WP is new and it is totally different so its taking time to spread in market.
