From The Makers of Angry Birds – Amazing Alex: Rovio, the company responsible for the exceptionally popular Angry Birds game, has come out with a new game called Amazing Alex. The game has users move wooden planks and card board boxes around the screen to get tennis and soccer balls to move the right way and wind up in the basket they are suppose to go in. The first ten levels or so are relatively easy and feature on screen clues but above level ten you have to be a bit more creative and ingenious and think of ways to get the tennis and soccer balls to bounce the right way to go into the basket if you want to advance to the next level.

Here’s a link to a Wall Street Journal tech article, titled Angry Birds Company Rovio Launches Amazing Alex Game, on the subject:
