The next game from Angry Birds creator Rovio known as Amazing Alex has managed to touch the peak of the mobile gaming charts after just one day of its release. Already a global phenomenon, the 99-cent iPhone game is the best-selling iPhone app in no fewer than 35 countries. Meanwhile, the $2.99 high-def version is the best-selling iPad app in 50 countries.
The game’s origin started outside of the walls of Rovio headquarters because it was basically created by an independent developer who launched the title under a different name in 2011. Finally Rovio acquired the rights and decided to tweak it a bit, because it saw the potential for it to become the next big thing. And when it comes to next big things, Rovio knows a thing or two.
The company is giving its focus on the top android game Angry Birds which has been continuing for last three years, which has made its way to traditional game consoles as a downloadable title, been introduced to stores with a whole line of retail merchandise, got a tie-in with the theatrical animated film Rio, and is accessible via download codes in the Blu-ray version of the 20th Century Fox flick. So will Amazing Alex be the next big thing? It seems like it’s on the way.
