Rovio's Angry Birds continues its impressive sales on the App Store with a new Halloween-themed spinoff that the developer said sold 1 million units in its first six days of availability.

This latest million is in addition to the 2 million downloads of the free, ad-supported Android version of the original Angry Birds, as well as the 6.5 million that were sold on the App Store as of August this year.

Angry Birds Halloween and its iPad counterpart Angry Birds Halloween HD are Finnish developer Rovio's first self-published games. The games released on October 21.

Angry Birds Halloween sells for 99 cents on Apple's App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch. Angry Birds Halloween HD goes for $1.99 on iPad. The iPhone and iPad versions of the game reached number one on the App Store sales charts in the U.S. and UK within 24 hours of the game's launch this month, Rovio said.

The company is currently at work on updates for the Android, Symbian^3, Palm WebOS and Nokia N900 versions of the original Angry Birds game.
