A HONKING 10 million copies of the Angry Birds in Space game have been downloaded since its release at the end of last week.
The numbers were announced in a tweet from the birds this morning, along with thanks from those involved to the downloaders.
10 million Angry Birds Space downloads in less than 3 days! Thanks to our fans, stay tuned for more! #angrybirdsspace— Angry Birds (@AngryBirds) March 26, 2012
Angry Birds in Space was always going to be a smash. Its forerunners squat at the top of the application store download charts and this new version adds things like anti-gravity and a new physics engine to the mix. It's also set in space and people do like a game that is set in space.
It is out now for Windows PCs and Macs, as well as Android and IOS smartphones and tablets. A release for Windows Phone is expected, but hey, who's waiting.
Prices for the game range from about £2 for the HD Apple game to £5 for the PC version.
One of our readers summed up his reaction to the game with a simple comment. "One word," he said, "Oh My God!" µ
