Further demonstrating the size of its pig-smashing franchise, Rovio has announced that Angry Birds Space has topped more than 100 million downloads, reaching the milestone in just 76 days.
The company shared the figure via a tweet posted to the official Angry Birds Twitter account, embedding a celebratory image to commemorate the impressive total:
100 MILLION Angry Birds Space downloads!! SQUAWK if you’re in space! rov.io/Ll5YWS

Angry Birds Space has enjoyed a crazy amount of downloads in its first three months on sale. After launching on March 22, it hit 10 million downloads in three days and then 20 million within a week.
Rovio later shared that the game had passed 50 million downloads on all platforms, taking just 35 days to do so.
If that wasn’t enough, Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka also shared last month that downloads of all of its Angry Birds titles have topped 1 billion, with half a billion of those in the last 6 months alone.
Oh, and there’s Angry Birds Heikki coming later this month.
Is there any stopping the Angry Birds franchise? At the moment, it appears not.
