Amazing Alex Set for July 12th Launch

Today Rovio announced via Twitter that Amazing Alex will be coming to app stores this Thursday, July 12th. They also released a brand new teaser video which you can see below. We expect Amazing Alex to land simultaneously on iOS and Android, and, as we reported a couple weeks ago, this release will include:

  • There will be 100 levels available at launch.
  • Ability to build and share your own levels using 35 interactive objects. This was one of the coolest features in Casey’s Contraptions, so it’s awesome to see that it’ll still be there. You will be able to upload and share your crazy Rube Goldberg levels and challenges right within the game.
  • Free regular updates.
  • Four locations at launch. By locations they’re likely referring to locations in Alex’s house, such as his bedroom, the office, bathroom, etc.
  • Multiple ways to solve a level. There will likely be stars to collect, but there won’t be just one way to obtain them.
  • Share your solutions! Like in Casey’s Contraptions, Rovio has said you’ll be able to share your solutions with your friends as well as see what solutions they came up with.

As stated in the original article:

The initial relaunch window is this summer on iOS and Android, then “extending to further platforms rapidly after that”.

Will Amazing Alex be covered here on ABN (in terms of walkthroughs, leaderboards, etc.)?

Quoting BirdLeader:

Note, we plan on covering Amazing Alex right here on ABN, as well as via the RocketPond Gaming Community, which we’re actively building right now.

I believe so, it’s a complicated process that BirdLeader has been actively working on for quite some time. You will be notified when new features are implemented.

This game looks fun and interesting. Should compliment ABs game playing with a different theme but the mental challenge appears to be present. After going back and watching the video with the tips mentioned above, it appears to be in the details.

I’m really looking forward. It’s only a day now. Last weekend I finally finished all levels in all Angry Birds games hoping and expeciting that amazing Alex could be launched this week.
Rovio is doing its job perfectly. Besides they make great games they have strong marketing. I could compare this with Harry Potter mania. I remember waiting in lines to buy the book same day it is published so I wonder what time Amazing Alex will become available. As far as I remember Angry Birds space were in AppStore early in the mornig CET so the first thing I did that day was to download game. I guess it will be the same with Amazing Alex tommorow.

There was a game similar to Amazing Alex i used to play on the PC a few years ago! Been trying to find out what it was called for years if anyone happens to know what I am talking about please let me know i’d love to play it again!!!!!!!!!!

Rovio bought “Casey’s Contraptions” and renamed it Amazing Alex.

@amslimfordy – you mentioned another game some time back that you really liked that was like Casey’s Contraptions. I cant think of the name of it. When you mentioned it I looked it up and it was not a mobile app – it was pc only – I bet that’s what Mike is thinking of. Can you recall another game in the same style that you liked?

Hrm… Perhaps Gizmos & Gadgets? Though that’s a different style.

No it wasn’t gizmos & gadgets that i played anyway! I think its older than Casey’s Contraptions but newer that Gizmos & Gadgets if that makes sense! I wish i could remember what it was called it’s going to bug me now lol

The game in the app store has no Game Center icon. In the game itself, it keeps sending me messages “This game is not recognized by Game Center”. Nevertheless the game seems to have the option “share solutions via Game Center”.

But we already know that Rovio’s games are always full of bugs. So it’s no surprise.

Rank: Master Slinger with 6190 points
By surfcow (@surfcow)

That’s rather harsh, @chriss. How do you know it’s Rovio’s code that is full of bugs? Are you certain that Rovio is to blame for Game Center’s failure to recognize this brand new game that was released less than six hours ago? I would suggest getting your facts straight before popping off about something, especially when you are talking about people. Rovio isn’t some anonymous blob in the sky that is operated by robots. It’s a group of people who mostly live in Finland. Oh, and they’ve only created the most popular mobile app in history. It’s fine to criticize when it’s warranted (and constructive, if possible.) In this case, I’m almost certain your attempt to throw Rovio developers under the bus is rather sad. In the future, you should refrain from purchasing any apps until they’ve been available for more than six hours. Let us foolish lemmings beta test Rovio’s bug infested games for you. Thank you.

Yes, the share function seems to have some issues with Game Center. I suggest you stay away from it until a fix is issued. The error loop will force you to quit and clear AA from the multitask bar.

Rank: Sling God with 28060 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

I agree with SurfCow that you are being very harsh and frankly very rude. To get the app added to the GameCenter list involves both Rovio AND Apple, so it’s really not fair of you to start bashing Rovio within a couple hours being released about this knot not being tied yet.

Rank: Master Slinger with 6460 points
By Chris (@chriss)

What I said is a fact not an opinion. I did not blame Rovio at all.

Most bugs in previous Rovio games concerned achievements, leaderboards or Game Center. So it’s rather Apple that is to blame than Rovio. I don’t know why always Rovio’s games are affected by Apple’s bugs. But we all know that it’s not the first Game Center problem in a Rovio Game.

Your statement in the thread above is misleading then.
Rovio was notified and is working on a fix as we speak.

Now that that seems to be settled, perhaps it would be prudent to advise everyone to run AA in Airplane Mode on their specific device until the GC problems are ironed out.

Of course, this is one time that Android user will catch a bit of a break, since they don’t have GC.
