Successor to Angry Birds, Amazing Alex is Rovio’s latest physics puzzle game for game lovers of all ages. Though it is not as addictive as angry birds and has not been approved globally as the phenomenal AB, Amazing Alex is both adventurous and magnetic. Amazing Alex takes place in a young boy’s messy house. Each level presents a different physics puzzle that involves cleaning up, you have to put balls in a bin, topple some books, or pop balloons. You then use the objects available to you to solve the puzzle, earning bonuses for each of the three stars you collect. The physics puzzles are a little more clever than some games, because there isn’t just one solution to every problem. You can place several pieces like shelves or pipes on a blank canvas to experiment with the game’s physics. You don’t also need every piece available to you (and they change every level) to solve a puzzle, meaning there is room fiddle with your designs. There are no time bonuses for solving a puzzle in one go, for not using all your pieces, or solving it an allotted time. The only achievement is collecting the three stars each level, which you’ll have to do to unlock new sections of the game. The game’s difficulty isn’t too challenging the first few levels serve entirely as tutorial and it won’t be hard for you to breeze through the first couple of zones. The joy in the game lies more with its sandbox nature, and it challenges you to create whatever Rube Goldberg can most creatively solve the level. That might not satisfy the most achievement hungry player, but it is far more creative and would be a great title to help kids’ problem solving skills. This is especially true in the section of the game that allows you to create your own levels with the same simple household objects. Players will be able to publish and share their own levels with friends, giving the game an extra creative level lost on many mobile titles.
