Since its release on March 22nd, Angry Birds Space has been quite a hit — especially considering the fact that most of the gameplay is so similar to existing Angry Birds games. The developer, Rovio, announced today that their space-age pig-destroying adventure has been downloaded 50 million times in the past 35 days, which makes it the fastest growing of the franchise.
The developer is “thrilled to see such a fantastic reception for the game,” and thanks Angry Birds fans everywhere for keeping the franchise so alive.
Angry Birds Space is currently available on Apple’s iPad, iPhone, and Mac for $2.99, $.99, and $4.99, respectively. It’s the number one paid app in the iPad and iPhone App Store and number nine in the Mac App Store. The developer also recently added ten new levels to the Angry Birds Space to extend the gameplay if you’ve already beaten the all the existing levels.
