Rovio Buys IP for Casey’s Contraptions, Intends to Re-Brand and Relaunch on Larger Scale

Recently, Rovio has confirmed that they have big plans following the huge success of Angry Birds Space. They have acquired the IP for Casey’s Contraptions, which is a popular title for iOS users. Rovio intends to re-brand the game and then launch on both Android and iOS, followed by many more platforms. Ville Heijari, VP of franchise development had this to say on the acquisition:

Working with Noel and Miguel has been fantastic, and this is a game that we all fell in love with from the first play. The gameplay is a perfect fit in our arsenal with its approachable, fun and highly addictive take on the physics puzzler genre.

Watch the video below and let us know what you think of this game. It seems like another ‘cutesy’ physics game, which is always welcomed.

    Does anyone remember Rube Goldberg? He was the inspiration for all the useless machine takeoffs.

    The incredible machine from disney exists on ios too, but it sucks. Casey’s contraptions is much better

  • trumpet444

    YES!!!!!! I loved this game. Can’t wait for it to hit android

  • TheKaz1969

    I bet the fanboys over at BGR are freaking out that this will be coming to Android and thus no longer be “cool”

  • kindrudekid

    Crazy Machines For Android!!!!

  • Sjschwar

    The incredible machine is available for IOS, can’t seem to find it on Play.
    No mort the mouse, no deal.

    Pretty sure these guys stole this IP from Incredible Machine. I used to play that in my computer lab in 4th grade and this looks identical.

    The re-brand will likely be a Discovery Channel/Mythbusters “Unchained Reaction” app tie-in.

        • Troll King

          You still weren’t first.

          • sk3litor

            Well when I looked it said 0 comments and nothing else was there so if they changed the definition of 1st since I went to school you’ll have to excuse my ignorance

          • your a 8===D head

            @sk3litor he’s right, and no the definition hasn’t changed. You just don’t know it apparently. If you sort by oldest first you weren’t the first to post.

    I loved this game when it was called the incredible machine back in the 90’s.

    • Josh Groff

      I remember playing that on my grandmother’s computer. Kept me entertained for hours.

      I freaking love droid-life, brings back good memories.
