Announced in early May, Amazing Alex is Rovio’s first venture away from Angry Birds since the title became a huge hit on iOS many moons ago. Based on the company’s previous success in the mobile gaming space, we’re all itching to see how its next release turns out, but the new teaser trailer Rovio released today gives us very little to go on.
In addition to the 20-second clip, however, the Finnish firm has also announced some more details about the physics-based puzzler.
A couple days ago, Rovio thanked fans for slingshotting Angry Birds past 1 billion downloads with a short video that teased a possible new game. Today, Rovio has confirmed they will, in fact, be releasing a new game entitled Amazing Alex. Amazing Alex is expected to launch in “two months’ time,” and confirms previous rumors that the game would be based on the Casey’s Contraptions game.
Rovio has experienced unparalleled success with their Angry Birds franchise and has just recently announced it has surpassed 1 billion downloads! That’s pretty insane, and what makes it even more impressive is the fact that since its release, the game hasn’t really changed much. To think Rovio was able to pull this off by simply switching up themes and adding more levels is mind boggling.
