Rovio: Amazing Alex on top spot for iPhone and iPad


A day after Rovio launched its latest game, Amazing Alex notched the top spot in the top paid app category for iPhone and the iPad.

Rovio, which is also responsible for developing the popular Angry Birds franchise, is back at the pedestal after Amazing Alex became a huge success last week and it doesn’t seem to look like slumping.

Amazing Alex topped the best seller for the iPhone app in at least 35 countries, while its iPad app reigned supreme in about 50 countries.

On the other hand, the Android version of Amazing Alex climbed at the 5th spot in the top paid apps category on Google Play.

Rovio seems to have the Midas touch, as everything that they seem to touch turns into a huge success. With Amazing Alex, Rovio has once again proved that they are here to stay. The company will still be releasing new Angry Birds games in the future, so it seems like the cash inflow for the company won’t likely end sometime soon.

Amazing Alex is a chain-reaction style-game. Your job is to help Alex solve puzzles in his bedroom.

Reviews for the game weren’t good at all. But if we gauge success with the number of times it has been downloaded, then Amazing Alex surely is a very successful game.
