‘Angry Birds’ Creator Rovio Announces New Game: ‘Amazing Alex’
Rovio Entertainment, known for its intense focus on one mega-successful game title, Angry Birds, is looking to diversify with another new mobile game called Amazing Alex.
The title is a rebranding of Casey’s Contraptions, which Rovio bought from developers Noel Llopis and Miguel A. Friginal earlier this month. Rovio CEO Mikael Hed told Finnish TV station Yle that the latest game “has an educational element and centers on the main character Alex, a curious young boy who loves to build things.” The title is expected to be released within the next two months.
As the video below demonstrates, Casey’s Contraptions is another physics-based game along the lines ofAngry Birds. The game features Rube Goldberg-type contraptions that are made from items like balloons, soccer balls, scissors and buckets.
