With the entire Angry Birds series accruing over 700 million downloads, the pressure on Rovio to go above and beyond, was, well, of astronomical proportions.
But the super-massive marketing strategy has certainly paid off! Only after a few hours after its launch (pun intended), Angry Birds Space has skyrocketed (sorry, I can't help it) to the top of the App Store charts in over 28 countries. It is the top selling paid app in dozens of countries including the US, Mexico, the UK, Germany, France, Norway, Denmark, Greece, Belgium, Finland, Russia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Hong Kong, Israel, and Switzerland.

Angry Birds Space is available on the Google Play Store for free for the ad-supported version, and for $0.99 for the ad-free version. You can download it here. The game is also available in the Amazon Appstore and on Apple's App Store.
