Rovio's Amazing Alex now available for Windows Phone 8

Published by at

The developer of Angry Birds, Rovio, today published Amazing Alex to the Windows Phone Store. The game, which was released for Android and iOS last summer, is a physics based puzzle game that sees you playing as the eponymous, spiky yellow haired, youngster creating machines from various objects to complete challenges (e.g. rolling a ball into a laundry basket, guiding a balloon to safety).

You create these fantastical machines, in the over the top style of Rube Goldberg, across 100 different levels, in 4 different locations, with 35 fully interactive objects. You can also download and play the best fan created levels from around the world. The game starts with just a few interactive objects from which to construct your machines, but as you progress additional objects are unlocked, which allows for some truly mind bending creations in the later levels.

Amazing Alex

Amazing Alex doesn't have anything like the following of Angry Birds, but it is still a fun and engaging game. There are some familiar elements from Angry Birds, such as the three star level scores, but the general gameplay is more free form, experimental, and contemplative than its bird flinging predecessor. The Windows Phone version is Xbox Live-enabled so, for the dedicated gamers, there also are a number of achievements to collected.
