    Rovio is taking their addictive physics based gameplay in new directions, and expanding their lineup at the same time. As of tomorrow, (July 12th), they will have a new game in their repertoire. It's called Amazing Alex, and it looks like it could offer some of the same time-burning fun that Angry Birds does. They announced the new game officially on their Facebook Page, linked below. The game will have 100 levels in which you must help the young boy named Alex navigate through "physics puzzles," and chain-reaction-style domino effects. This is the first entirely new game from the developer. Check it out and tell us if you think it will be a hit.

    I had a similar idea but I'm not a game developer so I never would have been able to code my idea. My idea was basically an app based on Rube Goldberg devices like what we used to make in science class. This game looks like it takes that idea to a whole new level though. :cool-b:

    free one worked for me downloading from play store on phone.

    You get 5-6 levels with hints, then afterwards you don't. I think there might be 15-20 levels total on the free then you get the buy it now.

    Its nice. I may get it when I get the Nexus 7 and the credit. Now I feel like uninstalling it.

    Yea they are gonna list the paid versions first. But if you click 'show more' or 'more from this developer' you can see the rest.
