Amazing Alex Teaser Video – Set for a July 2012 Launch

Good morning everyone! This morning Rovio released a new teaser video and some new details about Amazing Alex. They also released some wallpapers, which I’ll be posting separately in just a bit.

As you might expect, it sounds like the game play will be very similar to what we saw in Casey’s Contraptions. Below are the highlights:

  • 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.
  • There will be 100 levels available at launch.
  • As with any Rovio update you can expect 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.

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.

The video says the game can be played on iPhone – does that mean iPod Touch also?

Reasonable assumption.

I don’t know any thing about this game but, is there a possibility that it will be there for PC?

Hard to say at the moment. According to a recent tweet from them:

It’s launching on iOS and Android devices, but there may be further availability later!

If you read from their website, they did announce:

Amazing Alex will be launching soon on iOS and Android, with Windows following soon after.

Can’t wait for that!

“Windows” not “PC”? Maybe it will come out on the windows 8 store and leave the rest of the PC world hangin’

A distinction without a difference. Rovio’s PC version is only for Windows OS (XP SP2 and higher).

It would be something of a challenge, but I could probably get it to run under linux. It would take a lot of tweaking, though.

And Mac users could run it with a good Windows emulator.

What is RocketPond thing in the post? Explain please

RocketPond is a gaming community in which admins of ABN along with others create more websites focusing on more games, such as this website is for Angry Birds.

Rank: Sling God with 28130 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

RocketPond is the newly-formed “parent” of AngryBirdsNest. It will feature sites similar to ABN but dedicated to some of the other most popular mobile games, such as Cut the Rope.

I hope RocketPond site will include Where is my water and Cover the Orange in future.

will you make leaderboards if possible?

Don’t believe there will be any real need for that.

i’ll be interested to see if it going to be one of those games where scoring is a secondary objective.

Just a thought, why not change the name of the website to The Rovio Nest?

Rank: Sling God with 28130 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Because we are AngryBirdsNest.

And that’s why I think there is no room for Amazing Alex here. I don’t like the idea of AA walkthroughs (or any other thing) here on ABN.

it’s angry birds nest. amazing alex stuff here..will make it seems like it does 2 games

Rank: Avian Overlord with 19845 points
By Bird Leader (@birdleader)

You guys don’t need to worry. Whatever Amazing Alex stuff we have on ABN will not negatively impact, or clutter up, the user experience. You will still be able to access everything that is Angry Birds in the same way. Amazing Alex is a family oriented strategy game, so I think it can fit quite nicely here. If AA was a tower defense game or some other genre my thoughts would be totally different. Also, people here follow Rovio. For example, when I first checked in this morning there were numerous comments related to Amazing Alex. If we don’t cover it in some way that dialogue ends up scattered around all over the place, which does no one any good.

Rank: Sling God with 28130 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

That’s your opinion, but as far as we are concerned, this is the most appropriate place for Amazing Alex. We can’t just go and change our website name, URL, and everything like that. It’d be a ridiculous hassle, not to mention extremely expensive.

I have a blog about Angry Birds in Spanish, and if you don’t mind, I will put there the same news that you publish here in ABN, but translated into Spanish. It’s like an ABN but in Spanish.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 19845 points
By Bird Leader (@birdleader)

Actually, I do mind. Just because it’s translated to a different language doesn’t mean you’re not stealing our material. That said, I don’t mind if you do a short summary and then prominently link back here. Anything else won’t work though. Sorry.

Question: What the heck is Amazing Alex doing at the beginning of the teaser?

Rank: Sling God with 28130 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

It’s a bow or salute, done in some forms of martial arts to address one’s opponent.

Look forward to this game and how the present ABN formats will mesh the data and information of Amazing Alex. Nice touch on supporting family orientated fun. It should foster additional players to the ABN site. For individuals who play both, it is like “one stop shopping” with the leaderboards, information, walkthroughs, updates, etc.

I am looking forward for game, meanwhile I will complete AB space, AB Rio and try to get all three stars on previously played levels.
Alex’s character is cute, but as a woman I don’t like colors. Hope music and sounds will be graet as they are in all Angry Birds games.

So according to the website, i’m guessing it will only be released on Iphone, Ipad and Android. Too bad. Even though i’m pretty sure they’ll release for other platforms in the future, I wish it was for pc right now. I know, i’m usually not very patient when it comes to these things.:(

Does this mean that you guys give updates about amazing alex just like angry bids?

For the time being. We guess that Alex will have an inherent following from many Angry Birds players, at least at the beginning.
