The app world rejoices with the release of Rovio’s newest game, Amazing Alex. This game app was an instant hit, no doubt due to Rovio’s reputation for being the maker of Angry Birds, a mobile game downloaded over a billion times. No big deal. And in true Rovio style, Amazing Alex topped Apple’s App Store chart for paid apps almost immediately after its release, according to Boy Genius Report.

Rovio doesn’t cease to entertain us game lovers. In this physics puzzle game, you’re challenged with creating chain reactions to help Alex, your character, accomplish a variety of tasks, from straightening up his bedroom to battling robots in his back yard. Hey, we said “a variety.”

With countless toys and household items to choose from, your goal is to set up the objects to bounce, pop, ricochet, bash and crash into each other in order to gain gold stars. There are three gold stars attainable for each task, and your goal is to hit as many as possible in order to move on to your next challenge.

Amazing Alex starts out easy, guiding you through ways to set up your chain-reaction devices to complete the tasks at hand. Insert tables, boxes, pulleys and a number of gadgets into the puzzle, and watch your handiwork spring into action. The game allows you to test out your equations to ensure that you succeed in helping Alex get the job done.

The game includes 100 levels to test your creativity, and new levels become available every time the app is updated. You also have the ability to create your own levels and share them with friends or all Amazing Alex users. Speaking of sharing, you have the chance to use other user-generated levels from other players too.

To make your physics contraptions, you’ll choose from four fun locations: Alex’s classroom, bedroom, tree house and back yard. You then have 35 different objects to work with, such as various toys, balls, springs, ramps and tools.

Amazing Alex is immersive not only because of its amusing gameplay, but also because of its killer graphics. It’s optimized for retina displays like the iPhone 4S, giving you a sharper, clearer gaming experience.

Amazing Alex might give Angry Birds a run for its money in terms of creativity and imagination. You can bet that you’ll need your thinking cap when playing this game, but in the end, you won’t regret it. The result is creating a physics device that would make Rube Goldberg proud.
