Angry Birds Space smashes 100 million downloads

Angry Birds Space, the latest iteration of popular Angry Birds franchise, has been downloaded over 100 million times since its launch in March, announced Rovio on its Twitter account.

Angry Birds Space had smashed 50 million downloads in just 35 days of availability. The latest Angry Birds game is available for major mobile platforms – iOS, Android and BlackBerry. The game is likely to arrive on Windows Phone soon.

To refresh your memory, Angry Birds Space is set in outer space with all new gravitational dynamics. One of the major additions in the game is the power up, known as Space Eagles. Also, the birds themselves have also been revamped for outer space. The red bird in the game sports space age goggles. The colour of the game has been changed to a jazzy purple, and users can select the direction in which the bird zooms by simply tapping the location on screen.

Rovio's original Angry Birds has been downloaded more than a billion times by now. The Finnish developer is reportedly going to launch Angry Birds-themed amusement parks and even TV series. A Formula-1 based Angry Birds version, Angry Birds Heikki, is scheduled to release later this month.

Rovio isn't all about Angry Birds only. The developer is now prepping a successor to Angry Birds called Amazing Alex. The new game from Rovio is based on Casey's Contraption game. To know more, read our previous coverage.
