New Game From Angry Birds Creators

Rovio Entertainment, the creators of Angry Birds is launching a 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 Mashable 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.

Rovio announced the billionth download of Angry Birds last week. The company, which released the game in 2009, offers four different versions of the game — Angry Birds Space is the latest. In addition, Rovio is working on a movie, TV show and theme park based on the property.

      1. My first intro was in these giant “books” my Dad had while he was taking a cartoonist course. It showcased the work of the top cartoonists of the time. I was always fascinated by Rube Goldberg’s whimsical imagination.

        I wouldn’t mind having that Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car to escape commuter traffic. 😉
        Peace.
