Angry Birds Space hits 50 million downloads

In just 35 days, Angry Birds Space has been downloaded 50 million times, making it the fastest growing mobile game yet.

"This has been simply amazing, and the whole Rovio team is thrilled to see such a fantastic reception to the game," Rovio said on the company blog.

"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! We just launched the first free update for Angry Birds Space, with plenty more surprises in stock."

Angry Birds Space takes the slingshot gameplay that fans love to a totally new level featuring new birds, superpowers, and 60 interstellar levels that will have you working with planet gravity to destroy those pigs.  Angry Birds Space is available for iOS, Android, PC, and Mac.  Rovio just released 10 new levels for the iOS and Android.

But stay tuned, as Rovio also hinted that "something even bigger is on its way!"
