Wow, just wow. Angry Birds maker Rovio just announced in a tweet that Angry Birds Space, the latest installment in the popular series, has hit the hundred million downloads mark across all platforms.
If that didn’t give you a pause, remember that just a little over a month ago the game topped 50 million downloads in the first 35 days since its launch (ten million downloads in the first three days)…
As of May 9, all Angry Birds games across all platforms hit an astounding one billion downloads.
That’s a major uptake from approximately 648 million downloads as of end of 2011, commanding an astounding 200 million active monthly users.
Rovio also announced earlier this month that their Facebook page now has 20 million fans.

Rovio is also slated to release their web-only game called Angry Birds Heikki on June 18.
As for Angry Birds Space, the game was recently updated with a bunch of new levels that let you squawk your way through a cosmos of donuts, cakes and very hungry piggies.
But Rovio is not resting on its laurels.
Their vice president of franchise development Ville Heijari confirmed that Rovio recently acquired all rights to Casey’s Contraptions, a charming and highly addictive puzzle game by Snappy Touch and Mystery Coconut.
Consequentially, Rovio will tap the newly purchased IP to re-brand and re-work Casey’s Contraption as Amazing Alex, a brand new Rovio game set for release later this summer.
