'Angry Birds Space' hits 50 million downloads

'Angry Birds Space' hits 50 million downloads 'Angry Birds Space' has hit another milestone, 50 million downloads in just 35 days.
That number has broken the old record for mobile games, which was set earlier in the year by "Draw Something." Draw hit 50 million downloads in 48 days.

Rovio announced last month the game hit 10 million downloads in just 72 hours, shattering previous records. Most importantly for the developer, the game remains popular, sitting at #2 on Google Play and #1 on iTunes.

The game features "zero-gravity," adding a new twist to the game which many believe had begun to go stale despite new levels and scenes being released regularly. 'Space's' levels include floating rocks, planets, birds with new powers and gravity fields that are ever-changing.

Angry Birds Space is available for iOS, Android, Mac OS, and Windows, with a Windows Phone version coming in the future.
