Rovio has done pretty well for itself with the Angry Birds empire, and now we'll get to see if that magic can be replicated when the mobile dev takes on a new game based on Casey's Contraptions, a mobile title created by Snappy Touch. The Casey rights now belong to Rovio, Gamasutra reports, and the studio's plan is to release its first non-Angry Birds title sometime in summer 2012.
Casey's Contraptions is a physic-based puzzle game in which players manipulate an assortment of random objects to create a Rube Goldberg-style contraption that fulfills some kind of goal. Rovio's Ville Heijari revealed that Casey's Contraptions, which is now removed from the iTunes App Store, is being reworked into Amazing Alex so that it can be reintroduced in "true 'expect the unexpected' Rovio style." The game will initially be available on iOS and Android devices, with additional platforms to be added "rapidly" following the game's release.
