Rovio, demented architect behind Angry Birds
, has quietly revealed that its flagship title has been downloaded seven million times on Android platforms. The information comes courtesy of Rovio's Twitter account in response to a user noting
"Not all Android games are free." Rovio responded
, tweeting, "True, but the ones with more than 50K downloads are... We just hit 7M downloads on Android."
The free, ad-supported version of Angry Birds
was released on Android in October. It went on to be downloaded over two million times
in its first three days of availability.
