After hinting for a while that their next game would not start with the words “Angry Birds,” Rovio has let the cat out of the bag. Amazing Alex is the next Rovio project and, no surprise, it’s a physics-based puzzler.
If the image above and trailer below are any indication, it’ll owe a great debt to all those Rube Goldberg machines in cartoons you watched growing up. My personal favorite is the one at the end of the Bugs Bunny cartoon “Bully for Bugs.”
Amazing Alex will launch with 100 levels. Unlike Angry Birds, it will also allow user-created content in addition to Rovio’s regular updates.
Hey, guys, try not to make a penis-inspired level just this once. Who am I kidding, that’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “user-created content.”
Amazing Alex will be released next month for iOS and Android mobile phones.Tweet
