‘Angry Birds’ Crosses The 50 Million Download Mark
The phenomena that is Angry Birds shows now sign of fading, with the game’s creators Rovio announcing that the game has had 50 million downloads with 10m of those being the free, ad supported Android version.
That’s a hugely impressive count by anyone’s standards but it’s the company who keep the real achievement. As Engadget points out, other games that have managed to hit such a high number include such triple A titles as Bejewled (50m) and Legend of Zelda (a whopping 59m).
Some may point to the fact that presumably some of those 50m Angry Birds downloads will be the free Lite iOS version but make no mistake, that’s one mightily impressive feat no matter how you slice the numbers.
