  • Angry Birds catapults past 200 million downloads

    first_imgIf there’s one thing more staggering than the number of blog posts written about Rovio’s Angry Birds, it’s the number of people who have downloaded the addictive little game.According to Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka, the company has now seen more than 200 million downloads. That figure includes both the original Birds and its follow-ups, Seasons and Rio. With a direct tie-in to a hotly anticipated animated feature and help from Fox Digital, Rio got off to a torrid start. It amassed 10 million in its first 10 days of availability and has racked up more than 35 million downloads on its own, helped along by the ad which aired during Super Bowl XLV.AdChoices广告While 200 million is a huge number, Angry Birds is only going to continue adding to that total. Versions for Windows Phone 7 and the BlackBerry Playbook have yet to debut, but are slated to arrive this summer. And don’t forget that there are scores of players who no longer need to download the game to play it — thanks to the arrival of a Web version which can be played in any modern browser. Those of you who can’t be bothered to re-do all your levels, check out the JavaScript copy-and-paste trick which will unlock everything for you with minimal effort.With the Angry Birds printing piles of money on a daily basis for Rovio, it’s easy to forget that the company produces more than two dozen other games as well. They might be worth checking out, too, if you can tear yourself away from that slingshot for a few minutes.More at Moco Newslast_img read more
