Angry Birds Hits 1 Billion Downloads

It looks like our feathered friends have reached an important milestone.

Rovio, the developers of the wildly popular Angry Birds game series, announced today that over one billion Angry Birds games have been downloaded.

That’s a lot of fowl-flinging, pig-slaying action!

The one billion number counts downloads from all of the Angry Birds games, including the original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio, and the latest installment, Angry Birds Space.

To date, this is the first game app that has achieved such a milestone.

Additionally, the feat proves that video games do not always have to cater to a hardcore audience to be successful, selling games for low prices can still be profitable with a good product, and that solid gameplay and level design can easily compete with high-end graphics and game engines.

As a thank you to the Angry Birds faithful, Rovio put out a short video which hints at more exciting things to come.
