Chillingo has announced that their excellent physics-based puzzle game Angry Birds (from developer Rovio Mobile), has sold more than 500k units worldwide in less than a month! The game, which was released under Chillingo’s Clickgamer brand and developed by Rovio Mobile, has garnered numerous awards and been publicized by celebrities including DJ Chris Moyles and Olympic medallist Anja Pärson.

“As soon as anyone plays Angry Birds, they are happy and addicted,” promised Chillingo’s Head of Publishing, Johnny Coghlan. “It has universal appeal to players of any age and experience level, thanks to Rovio’s expert design and development skills.”
