Rovio has acquired the rights to the Casey’s Contraptions IP from Snappy Touch and Mystery Coconut, and the firm will release a new game in the series this summer. The original iPad title has been removed from the App Store. The new physics-based puzzler will be the first title from the developer that’s not Angry Birds-centric, and upon release the game will initially launch on iOS and Android before extending to other platforms.
