Amazing Alex Now Available for iOS and Android!

Like a phoenix from the ashes, Casey’s Contraptions has been born again as Amazing Alex! This latest app from Rovio is now available for iOS and Android — via both Google Play and the Amazon Appstore. Rovio has stated that the app will be released at a later time for PC, Mac, and Windows Phone. Before all the repetitive questions start, no we don’t know when these will arrive, and no we don’t know if any other platforms will ever receive the app.

The storyline follows a boy named Alex who, instead of being a good child and doing his homework, would rather build crazy Rube Goldberg machines using everyday items. When playing through the normal levels your goals are to collect all 3-stars while completing the required objective. Those objectives vary and will become more complicated as the levels progress. Sometimes your objective is to knock balls into a laundry basket, pop balloons, or simply (or not so simply) knock things over. As expected, as you progress through the game new interactive objects will be introduced and these objectives will get much more complicated and outlandish. Fortunately, Alex’s parents are very open-minded and let their son’s imagination run wild.

Note for iOS users regarding Game Center Sharing:

  1. July 12th, 2012 — An update is out now in the AppStore the fixes the Game Center bug for most users. I say “most” because if you have greater than 300 friends it looks like you can’t see shared levels (you can see those that you’ve shared). So what to do? Well, you can either trim down the number of friends you have or wait until a fix is released. I did ping @AmazingAlex via Twitter and they said they would pass it along.
  2. Game Center support for Amazing Alex is problematic at the moment. If you’re receiving the error, “This game is not recognized by Game Center” try closing Amazing Alex then either logging out of Game Center or enable, “Airplane Mode”. Now reopen Amazing Alex and the message should stop popping up. Rovio has already submitted a fix for this issue to Apple, so we’re just waiting on it to arrive. We will let you know when this happens.

So what’s included in the initial release?

  • For iOS: The app costs $0.99 USD for the SD version and $2.99 USD for the HD version. As far as I can see, there are no in-app purchases at this time, nor is there iCloud syncing.
  • For Android: Same pricing as for iOS, regardless of whether you download from Google Play or the Amazon Appstore. As an alternative, there is a “Free” version of the app in both stores. This version only contains 16 levels (The Classroom) and has a link to the “Paid” version if you decide to buy.
  • 112 Levels! Spread across four episodes, you can play a full century of levels! We will be creating walkthroughs for these, so please be patient while we get everything up and running.
  • Share Solutions! For iOS users, you can share your solutions across Game Center with your friends. This is useful if you are having trouble with a level, or if your buddy is struggling. If you share your solution, it will be saved so you can go back and revisit the level at a later time to see what you have done. Also, you can share across SD and HD.
  • Level Creator! The app has only be live for a couple hours and there are already hundreds of user-created levels available online to play. You can either contribute to this list by creating your own, try to conquer levels your friend has built, or beat levels created by some random person in eastern Europe (**cough** Finland)!
  • One iOS Achievement! Earn a 50-point achievement called “Completely Amazing” for earning 3 stars on all levels in the first four chapters.

A few notes about the level creator

  • The “My Levels” episode, which is the level creator, is unlocked after you complete the first episode.
  • Additional objects are added to the level creator as you progress through the episodes. This will make the level creator even more entertaining and give you incentive to work your way through the game.
  • As we mentioned above, you can share your creations or download levels created by others. Before you can share your level you have to prove that your able get all 3-stars by clicking the “Play” icon.
  • If 3-stars are obtainable then you’ll have the option to share it, but before you do you have to drag items off the stage into the toolbar. This way people can try and create a solution on their own.
  • Kids love the level creator! A screenshot of a level my 4-year old son created this morning is below (it’s the last one).

Angry Birds Tie-Ins! (We all knew they were coming.)

  • The Classroom: Through the first chapter, there is a poster under the board that reads “Aa: Angry” and “Bb: Bird”.
  • Alex’s Bedroom 3-11: First appearance of the Bad Piggy Bank, though he appears in several levels thereafter as well. A nice subtle add-on is that his eye becomes bruised after shattering, just like the pigs in Angry Birds.
  • Alex’s Bedroom 3-12: The level is called “Angry Doll” and features the doll in the slingshot aimed at the Bad Piggy Bank. I couldn’t help but yell “Ca-Cawwww” the first time I played it.
  • The Treehouse 4-1: The level is called “Angry Birds” and features a slingshot with a ball bearing aimed at the Bad Piggy Bank atop a rickety structure.

    Hi @chris

    Thanks for information, i will take a look. I find it not so possible looking for Amazing Alex in Gamecanter to Leaderboards and Archievements. I find it not so interesting because you can earn no scores (only stars). I still played 1 Episode in AA. My big world is AB :-) Sorry my personally opinion!!

    @amslimfordy I sent a tweet to Amazing Alex about the free version on Android and this is what they said:
    For the moment it’s just a trial, but we’ll let you know if this changes.

    Does this mean that AA Free could change?

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    I mean, things could always change, but as far as I know, the fact that the Android “Free” app is just a trial is likely to stay the way it is.

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    It’s possible Rovio would make AA “Free” an ad-supported full version of the app, but seeing as how that was not the design at initial launch, I think it’s unlikely.

    Rank: Master Slinger with 6710 points
    By hinarei (@hinarei)

    I really don’t mind this approach. I have a slight aversion to paying for things online unless I have to but I am okay with an ad-supported approach. Slightly strange since Rovio made two specific versions of Space for Android Market and have only made AA a trial at launch. Hope to see more than a trial version in the future, as the first 16 levels are a doddle :)

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    I respectfully disagree. iOS does not have free “ad-supported full” versions of any Rovio apps, which is a bit unfair IMO.

    Rank: Master Slinger with 6710 points
    By hinarei (@hinarei)

    fair enough then. I’m afraid I’m not quite up to speed on all the differences between platforms, so was basing my opinion on the Market setup. I’d like to see ad-supported versions as the norm, with other features available (like Eagles) on a paid-for basis, or if you don’t like the ads you have the option to buy the program.

    Bug? I started playing the bedroom episode and got 3 stars on first level. The episode select screen says 0/96 stars, but when I open the episode, all the bedroom levels show 3*s, even though I’ve only played 2 levels! No matter what I try, I can’t get any bedroom level to register stars on the episode select screen.
    I guess I see what happens on the treehouse.

    Treehouse is Ok, but bedroom still the same.

    By Takacs David

    I have a LOT of bugs.
    First, when I complete a level, something pops up and disappears immediately in the background.
    Second, in the treehouse, the levels on 3rd and 4th page doesn’t want to open! The others have 3 stars (I didn’t collect them all before this bug). In the episode seelection screen, treehouse says that it has only 7 stars.
    Third, I want to share my levels, I want to enter level name and my name… it don’t let me! It can only enter numbers!
    I need that update…QUICK!

    I had the sama bug on android. after playing the first 5 levels of the bedroom episode, it get stuck at 15/96 stars no matter what I do. Treehouse worked fine.

    @AMslimfordy @Birdleader Well, I’m reluctant to play Bedroom levels, because I’m worried that my scores won’t be recorded, and I will have to replay them. It takes a fair amount of time on some levels.

    Shouldn’t be an issue. Some people have reported having 96/48 on some chapters.

    Rank: Gold Flinger with 9830 points
    By Chris (@chriss)

    I don’t blame anybody. I just state the fact that all Rovio games so far had problems with Game Center and other bugs (like the star counter here). Always a few achievements are not working properly, and always some other things are not working like they should.

    On the other hand there are e.g. 5 Cut the Rope games so far. I have all of them, and none of them never ever had an achievement that was unachievable or a wrong star counter or anything like this.

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    That’s not true either. Bath Time had a level that had borked physics, making it nearly impossible to obtain 3 stars. And the achievement “Student” achievement in Experiments Free (HD) is flawed.

    Rank: Gold Flinger with 9830 points
    By Chris (@chriss)

    I had 3 stars in all Bathtime levels the day it came out.

    “Student” is not flawed. There are just not enough levels so far to get 40 stars. Stars only count once even if you repeat a level.

    The physics glitch still existed. And there are only 36 stars in EF.

    Rank: Gold Flinger with 9830 points
    By Chris (@chriss)

    If there are only 36 stars now and for the achievement there are 40 stars required, how can you say it’s flawed? You will get it after the next update.

    The CTR franchise allows you to collect stars multiple times for such achievements. This one does not.

    Rank: Gold Flinger with 9830 points
    By Chris (@chriss)

    No. All stars achievement are like this. If you had looked at the percentage (e.g. also in the full version), you would have seen that if you play the same level again and earn again 3 stars, the percentage does not change. Only if you play a new level and earn new stars, the percentage increases. So this achievement is not bugged at all.

    Rank: Gold Flinger with 9830 points
    By Chris (@chriss)

    And also in CTR Free: you get the achievement when you earned 54 different stars (which means when you have 3 stars in all levels), and not when you played the first level 18 times.

    This is Rovio’s response to my e-mail report of bug:

    Thank you for contacting us. We’re sorry to hear that the game isn’t working properly.

    We have now received some feedback about this issue and we’re working day and night to get rid of the glitch that causes it. If rebooting did not work, then unfortunately the only way to fix this is to uninstall the game and then reinstall. It’s also advisable to create a backup of your iPad before you uninstall the game and reboot the device before reinstalling.

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Hopefully you enjoy the game, and have a great day!

    I’m not really aware of all the Android devices and their compatibility and such, but I can see that Amazing Alex requires Android OS 1.6 or higher. Could be that. Otherwise, contact Rovio with all applicable device information.

    Are you saying that every AB game has it’s own developer and I’m not saying that updating one effects the others.

    If you wanna place an item in the bottom left corner, it goes back into the box. An annoying bug.

    And if you place an item by mistake or intentionally behind one of the two red buttons, you cannot move it anymore and have to restart the level. Another very annoying bug.

    None of these are bugs.

    If a level cannot be finished and has to be restarted, it can be called a bug.

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    If you are placing objects behind top-layer buttons, then obviously you can’t reach through it. Would you prefer to place objects over a top-layer button and not be able to press Play? Seems just as foolish.

    Anyways, since again we seem to be at an impass where we differ in opinions, you may be better off reporting these as-you-so-call “bugs” to Rovio.

    By Chris (@chriss)

    I don’t report it to Rovio. But I have read about many video games. Whenever you reach a point where you cannot do anything else but restart the game/level (although you have not done anything wrong), people call it “glitch” or “bug”.

    Besides, it’s not foolish. Sometimes you need to place a ball or a magnet exactly where the red button is. Maybe not in your HD version, but the iPhone screen is smaller. It happened to me several times.

    No, some other people (including my self) reported the same. It seems to be bugged. Don’t know if Rovio was informed already.

    Are you going to publish walkthroughs still? I’m on iOS, have a profile in Gamecenter (0 friends, if that matter), but I can’t see any solutions shared by other people.

    Thanks!

    You can only see solutions that are shared by your GameCenter friends. All of our videos are up on YouTube right now (see all videos here) and we are hoping to finish the on-site posts today.

    Well, zero friends equals to zero solutions. Such a pity for an unfriendly guy like me :)

    I also don’t see any hint button, mentioned by @Chris. So, no Alex’ solutions for me as well. That starts to irritate!

    Thanks to ABN, solutions ARE. sometimes it’s not very handy to play and watch youtube videos simultaneously, but it’s better than nothing. Thanks, guys!

    I see the lightbulb. By tapping it, I’m brought to a notebook with one big smiley face above spring and three below. Login to GC button is also there, but I can’t login. Oh-no-please-try-again in-game message appears, and that’s all.

    No solutions from Alex to me.

    You need to be logged in Game Center to see Alex.
    Try to log in from the GC app.
    You should also be running Amazing Alex v 1.0.1 which had a Game Center bug fix.
    Hope this helps ;)

    The hint button is the lightbulb button. I called it hint button because in other games the lightbulb usually means “get help” or “get a hint”.

    Sorry, but as I said, if we could run the site without ads and stay in business, we would. But necessary evils are necessary. Otherwise, we could not provide you with all of this for free.

    Our choice of color background will be occasionally trumped by these sorts of ads. They do not appear on mobile devices (so no worries on your data plans). While admittedly a little intrusive, these are typically hand-picked to be relevant to mobile gamers — and honestly helps pay the bills ;) Sorry, but necessary evils are still necessary.
