Rovio Looking For Another Hit With “Amazing Alex”

By AaronSamp - Monday, July 16, 2012

Rovio is a mobile gaming company that has a lot of inertia behind their name and brand. This company is most well known for their huge hit and returning champion of both the Android and iTunes app stores, Angry Birds. This game was one of the most popular mobile games of all time and Rovio has got a whole new game that they are hoping people will fall in love with all over again. It will take some time to tell.

Within the cut throat market of mobile gaming which seems to change about every minute, this game is going to have to get a lot of loyal fans talking about it to give it some lift. Although, with Rovio’s track record, this seems like a given. This game took no time to hit #1 on the iTunes store and this will definitely give the momentum it needs to be a contender for the next big thing in mobile gaming.

The Amazing Alex game offers over a 100 levels of action in the first release. From fighting cardboard robots to cleaning your room, this game is filled with many different challenges and fast paced physics logic puzzles. If you like the bird flinging fun of Angry Birds you will most likely love these “chain reaction” based mini games. You can grab this game for your Android phone or iPhone for ninety nine cents, but if you want the high def version for the iPad it is going to cost you $2.99 but I think that might be a great deal considering how impressive these style of games are on larger screens.

Many mobile gamers are disappointed that there is no free version of Rovio’s new Amazing Alex, but this game has a lot of action packed levels and cool puzzles for the low price. I think this game is a definite winner and anybody looking for a new way to waste time, this is going to be a solid investment for the price of a candy bar. Rovio may be back on top for some time, considering their track record with monopolizing on new levels and upgrades that people just can’t release. One feature this game has that will help catapult it into mobile gaming history is the ability to create your own puzzles and share them with friends. This will surely be a winner for social game lovers and geeks.

It looks like this game may take hold fast with staggering download numbers already and leading the iTunes most popular list.  There are many new games coming out with surprisingly intricate plots and amazing graphics now that mobile devices are being loaded with stronger processors and video cards. This will make it a challenge to stay on top, but then again they have done it before under some pretty strong competition as well.
