Amazing Alex (Free) Review: a Bit Underwhelming (Video)
If you read Androidpipe.com before you know we’re pretty big fans of Rovio’s work and especially the Angry Birds titles. Bad Piggies is also a pretty great achievement, but for some reason Amazing Alex just doesn’t do it for us. We tested the game, in its free version at least on an Acer Iconia Tab A510 tablet and what we found you can read below.
This is a physics puzzle game, one that requires Android 2.1 and up to work and one that takes up 23 MB of storage. The idea is to mess about with interactive objects and guide a ball to a basket, for example, or make some books fall into a certain area. You move objects and try to get object A from place B to place C. Chain reaction is what it’s all about and keep in mind that we’re only reviewing the free version here, the one with 16 levels, for the more cheapskate gamer.
The full one may be a hit, but as far as the free one is concerned, we gave it a 6 out of 10. Every puzzle felt too easy and I feel that if you’re Rovio and you’re making huge bucks on Angry Birds, you should afford to give the gamers at least 30 decent levels for free in Amazing Alex. I’m sure that the full game will get at least an 8 out of 10 from us, especially for the 35 interactive objects that you can play with and your own customizable levels. You can get the game from here.
