Rovio’s Amazing Alex Is Now Available

The next game from Rovio, creators of Angry Birds, Amazing Alex has today arrived for iPhone, iPad and Android. The game, like Angry Birds, fits into the genrè of a physics puzzler but this time you’re setting up “objects to bounce, pop, ricochet, bash, and crash into each other and create an elaborate Rube Goldberg device”.

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!

The game features 100 levels across four locations but as Rovio has already said, regular future updates will see more levels added, just like Angry Birds. Where Amazing Alex gets more interesting is the ability for you to create your own levels with “35 interactive objects” and then share them with friends or even the whole world.

You can purchase Amazing Alex for the iPhone ($0.99) or iPad ($2.99).
