Angry Birds developer reveals its new game

Amazing Alex to be based on the recently acquired Casey's Contraption IP

Rovio is to follow up Angry Birds with a new game called Amazing Alex.


Set for release in two months' time, the game will be based on the Casey's Contraption IP recently acquired by the Finnish studio. Casey's Contraption is a highly regarded physics-based puzzler for iOS.

Rovio CEO Mikael Hed told Yle that the new game focuses on a curious young boy named Alex who loves to build things, and that it'll have an educational element.

"The quality pressure is high," he said. "We want to maintain the high standard Angry Birds fans have come to enjoy."

Angry Birds topped one billion downloads this week, so Amazing Alex has some pretty big footsteps to follow in.
