There has been an influx of games coming to Windows Phone lately, and today we have another big one. Rovio, of Angry Birds fame, has launched Amazing Alex for Windows Phone 8. This is Rovio’s first game that has nothing to do with birds, pigs, or being angry.
Amazing Alex started life as Casey’s Contraptions by indie developers Snappy Touch & Mystery Coconut. In May of 2012 Rovio purchased the rights to the game, slightly modified it to Amazing Alex, and then released it the following month on Android and iOS. The game is a physics puzzler that requires players to build rube goldberg machines to help Alex get things done. Players can use anything in Alex’s room to build the contraptions and finish chores, battle robots, and much more.
Amazing Alex has more than 100 levels, 35 objects to choose from, and four locations to build on. One of the coolest features of the game is the ability to design and share your own levels with friends. This also allows you to download other fan-made levels and try to beat them. Amazing Alex is a great addition to the ever growing Windows Phone game library. It is available now for $0.99 (and free trial) as an Xbox game for Windows Phone 8 devices. Enjoy!
