Rovio proved with Angry Birds that a games doesn’t need to be with extreme graphics and complexity to catch attention of the users.
Rovio introduced Angry Birds and it was a Massive hit, everyone was playing it, there were merchandizing and the game was also recorded in the Physical World, They were mad with Lego, Actually birds were compared with Angry Birds and there were tests to see if you’re addicted to it, it was so massive that Rovio decided to get Angry Birds on Facebook. Rovio was compared to Disney and the Birds were compared to the iconic Mickey Mouse, there were debates about if Rovio could be the Next Disney, and rest it history.
Having all the above said and done, Angry Birds released it’s newest game to the world, Amazing Alex, A physics puzzle game, could swing both was for the company. Angry Birds has enjoyed over a billion downloads, has launched a new franchise – it’s first for three years.
Amazing Alex requires players to organise a series of objects to create a chain reaction, with each affecting one and other to reach a goal – so kind of like a game of dominos, but the blocks have been replaced by common objects, such as a toy car.
The puzzle-based app is a reboot of an old game game called Casey’s Contraptions, released by developer Snappy Touch in 2011. Rovio bought the rights for the game at the beginning of the year.
Now, Amazing Alex, unlike Angry Birds when released, is available on iPhone/iPad and Android, with the Windows Phone version coming soon. Go to your respective phones Store and download it.
