‘Amazing Alex’ Coming to Android, iOS on Thursday


Angry Birds has many fans, and a lot of us were eagerly anticipating Rovio’s next game, Amazing Alex. The wait is almost over.

Rovio announced today that the new game is going to be available in Google Play and iTunes later this week. Amazing Alex was originally known as Casey’s Contraptions, before Rovio bought the rights to it back in May of this year. Like Angry Birds, it’s a physics-based game, only this time your task is to build a Rube Goldberg type of device, not shoot fowl at swine.
