Rovio’s focused assault on the casual gaming public continues to pay off big time, as Angry Birds Space surpasses 50 million downloads in 35 days, breaking all previous records and making developers of big-budget console titles feel the need to re-evaluate their careers.
These two capuchin monkeys, Sasha and Thor, are mascots for Houston’s Gallery Furniture. Here, some brave iPad owner handed them Angry Birds Space to play. Not only did they not completely break the device, Thor even three-starred a level. See for yourself in the video above.
Is it cool to not hate Angry Birds yet? I’m too scared to admit that I’ve kinda/sort of been playing Angry Birds Space over the last couple of days, but it looks as though I’m not alone — 10 million people have downloaded the game in three days.
