The new Halloween edition of the absurdly popular mobile game Angry Birds has shifted more than a million downloads in just six days, developer Rovio has announced.

The original game has sold 6.5 million units to date on the App Store and a further two million Android downloads.

"We're delighted to see such fantastic reception for Angry Birds Halloween," said Rovio CEO Mikael Hed. "We intend to continue creating more and more quality products and updates, and keep exceeding the expectations of our fans worldwide."

Promising news for EA, who recently picked up sometime publisher Chillingo for $20 million.

Next up for Rovio, the inevitable DS, PlayStation Network and PSP versions.
