The latest entry in Rovio’s phenomenally successful bird slinging series has hit a whopping milestone.

Angry Birds Space has been downloaded more than 50 million times in the 35 days since the game was released.

The huge number makes it the fastest growing mobile game ever as well as breaking all of Rovio’s previous records.

“This has been simply amazing, and the whole Rovio team is thrilled to see such a fantastic reception for the game,” the developer wrote on the Angry Birds blog.

“We extend our deepest gratitude to all fans of Angry Birds everywhere. While numbers like this certainly say something about the popularity of Angry Birds, for us the main goal is to keep creating fun new experiences that everybody can enjoy!”

Angry Birds Space launched on March 22 for iOS, Android, PC and Mac. A Windows Phone version is also in development but has no date yet.

The franchise as a total has generated 700 million downloads in its lifetime, across all platforms.
