Ahhhhhh, I am enlightened, thank you! Would be nice to know, then, how many of those 50 million downloads were free and how many were paid, but mainly I wouldn't mind knowing how Rovio monetises everything. They seem perfectly happy with merchandising opportunities.

It's not free. The Android version comes with ads, but the iOS one is £0.69p, with further in-app-purchases available. Stuck on a level? Buy a Mighty Eagle to clear it for you. Want more challenge? Buy the Expert levels. (Which were actually free on the slightly more expensive PC version.)

But, but, it's free? So does 50 million downloads in 5 weeks actually compare to anything else that is free and how does Rovio benefit from this type of business model?

It's a great game. Far better than regular, dull, generic, abiding by the earths laws of physics, Angry Birds. That's so old and rubbish now.

I did notice some new free levels on Angry Birds Space the other day. Rovio seem to be pulling all the right moves.
