Angry Birds Rio: 10 million downloads in 10 days.

It was never likely that the newest member of the Angry Birds family was going to disappoint when it came to download numbers, though notching up 10 million in ten days certainly makes for an impressive headline.

In true Rovio fashion, the developer made the announcement via Twitter, simply stating that Angry Birds Rio which is available on both Amazon and iOS had hit "10 in 10!".

Perfect 10

A bit of investigation by Mobile Entertainment has proved that, as expected, said tweet referred to the number of downloads in the same number of days.

"Angry Birds Rio breaking all records. A massive thanks to all our fans," the developer added.

The split between paid and free versions, however, is unclear.

Paying to play?

Both releases are available on the App Store, while Android's paid version is limited to the Amazon Appstore.

The free release was also exclusively available on the retailer's marketplace, finally launching on Android Market on March 30th.

Sales of the series as a whole recently surpassed the 100 million mark, with total revenues having topped 50 million at the beginning of March.
Wow, I wonder how much Tiny Wings is making?

The undeserving and shallow is making millions, while the true gems are gathering dust and going bankrupt. Cruel world.

That makes no sense, Angry Birds is amazing.

Sigh. Whenever I look at who rated games in the game release section of the forum, you left a one-star review. Find a game you like and go troll that forum.

Right now Angry birds has the #1, #3 AND #10 spots (rio, regular and seasons respectively). Tiny wings has #2. So yeah, Angry Birds is making SIGNIFICANTLY more than Tiny Wings...

But even so, if MY game were #2 I'd be quite happy!!

Yeah Tiny Wings is doing well, but Rovio are rolling in that shit. They're on both iOS, Mac/PC and Android (sure it's a smaller market but they're at the top of it) and their merch is selling like crazy too. They can stick a bird picture on anything right now and make a profit.

Is it the real case?? how can you be so critical? Angry Birds Rio is awesome and worth the popularity.
