Tiny Wings 2 and Rovio's Amazing Alex Coming to App Store on Thursday

NewImageTwo major games are coming to the iPhone and iPad on Thursday: Amazing Alex, Rovio's first non-Angry Birds title, and Tiny Wings 2, the sequel to the seventh most purchased iPhone app of all time.

Here's what Rovio has to say about Amazing Alex:
Meet Amazing Alex! With his boundless imagination, this whiz kid turns everything into adventure! From cleaning his room to battling cardboard robots in his backyard, Alex creates amazing chain reactions to get the job done. Now he has some challenges for you! What's the most creative solution YOU can create? With 100 challenging levels, there's a whole world of creations to explore!

Rovio has not released pricing information on Amazing Alex, but it should be in line with its prior games.

Tiny Wings 2 features the same flight-challenged bird as the well-loved original, which recorded more than 185,000 ratings on the App Store, with an average review of 4.5 stars.

I hope tiny wings 2 is decent - the trailer doesnt exactly tell you anything useful. It's still a bit odd that Tiny Wings never had an iPad version!

iPad version where they charge $2.99 for a HD version?

Yeah they'd probably make a killing


There is no "they".

Tiny Wings was made by a single person, Andreas Illiger, part-time after his day job. I believe he spent about 7 months on it. It wouldn't surprise me if nearly half of that time was nothing but polish and refinement.

You guys need to update this post. Tiny Wings 2.0 is an update (http://www.theverge.com/gaming/2012/7/11/3151260/tiny-wings-2-is-not-a-sequel-its-a-free-update-to-the-original), not a new app. It's on your sister site, Touch Arcade.


Very cool. Might have to buy the iPad version then :D

Completely agree with that, Andreas Illiger is nothing short of a genius.
