Angry Birds Space rockets past 100 million downloads

Up 50 million in 38 days

Angry Birds Space rockets past 100 million downloads
It was never likely to be anything other than a success, but news Angry Birds Space has topped 100 million downloads in little over two months since launch is still a tally worth applauding.

News of the game's new total was delivered via Rovio's Twitter account, with the developer marking the occasion with a request for players to 'SQWARK'.

And to the next 50...
Angry Birds Space is currently available on iOS, Android, BlackBerry PlayBook, PC and Mac, with downloads having doubled from 50 million back at the end of April.

That means downloads are currently averaging out at more than 1.3 million a day.
Angry Birds Space's first 50 million was followed by a blog post where Rovio claimed it was "thrilled to see such a fantastic reception for the game", claiming the firm's main goal was to "keep creating fun new experiences that everybody can enjoy."

Next up will be the launch of Amazing Alex, based on the Casey's Contraptions IP Rovio acquired back in May.
