Like the headline says, a Corona-built game named Bubble Ball (which was our most recent App of the Week) just passed the free version of Angry Birds: Seasons on the App Store’s free apps chart. According to the developer — who is just 14 years old — the physics puzzle game has over a million downloads to date, and the download numbers haven’t even topped off yet.
We’ve been watching Bubble Ball climb the charts today. Heck, we were pretty excited when it reached #2, thinking it could never unseat the mighty Angry Birds. But then, just a few minutes ago, it hit the #1 spot!
Congratulations to developer Robert Nay on this achievement — we’ll be following up on this story with more details about his project and his future plans for it!
To those of you who still haven’t downloaded and checked out Bubble Ball (it’s free!), check out this simple video about this simply addictive game…
…So far, the game has made addicts out of 1.5 million iPhone users!
Robert, what have you done???
* UPDATE, 01/18/2011: Bubble Ball just surpassed 3 million downloads in the App Store, less than three weeks since its release!
