Rovio's Amazing Alex launches this Thursday for iOS and Android

Rovio's Amazing Alex launches this Thursday for iOS and Android
Can lightening strike twice in the same place? Game developer Rovio hopes so. After conquering the world with Angry Birds (and making huge amounts of cash in the process), Rovio's new Amazing Alex game launches Thursday from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. More platforms carrying the game will be announced later.

With 100 levels, 35 interactive objects and free updates, the game requires you to solve physics puzzles by creating complex chain reactions. The game was known as Casey's Contraptions and was developed by Mystery Coconut. But that company was purchased by Rovio which is applying to the game the same formula it used to make Angry Birds a world-wide phenomenon. That means there could be spin-offs and in-app purchases. There is speculation that the game will come with a level creator which would allow users to create their own level and share it with others.

it was speculated that WP had higher quality apps due to WP users having as many apps on their device as Android users do despite the difference in how large their respective app selections are.

LOL. what a troll! Windows Phone doesn't suck it's just young and struggling to find traction, it will find a place or at least fight with RIM for the third spot.

This game was already released back in 1993 as The Incredible Machine. I remember making hilarious machines that dropped bowling balls on mice and making a tiny man walk off a cliff to his death... Good times.
