For those who haven’t played Angry Birds yet, it is a puzzle video game that was inspired predominantly by a sketch of stylized wingless birds wherein you take control of a flock of birds that are struggling to save eggs that have been stolen by an army of evil green pigs. The game seems very interesting. Since its first release, more than 12 million copies have been sold.
Angry Birds has been admired for its popular blend of addictive gameplay, hilarious style, and affordable price. Its fame has resulted in many versions of the popular franchise being created, and to great and growing fanfare at that. The game has been known as “one of the most mainstream games out right now”, “one of the great runaway hits of 2010”, and “the largest mobile app success the world has seen so far.”
Less than two weeks ago, the latest stand-alone version – featuring 20th Century Fox’s animated film Rio – was launched by the Angry Birds franchise. And, in just 10 days, it reached 10 million downloads if we sum up downloads from Amazon Appstore, Android Market and the Apple App Store. This version of the Angry Birds brings some remarkable enhancements over its forerunners. In our mind, its no surprise that it has reached such an amazing number of downloads in such a short span of time. In deed impressive, isn’t it?
