Today, the maker behind the extremely popular mobile/web/desktop game Angry Birds, Rovio released Amazing Alex, their newest game offering. Amazing Alex, just like Angry Birds, is a puzzle game and it would be physics-based using real objects we see in our daily activities.
Amazing Alex has 100 levels and on each problem, you can have your own solution. One feature though that can revolutionize puzzle games is the ability to create your own custom game level and share it. With that, even after you finished completing the 100 levels, you still have more levels to play.
Here’s the teaser video of the Amazing Alex game.
Free version Available for Android not for iOS (iPhone, iTouch, and iPad)
Well, I think many will become a little bit disappointed because Amazing Alex game has no free (or ad supported) version in the Apple App Store. You have to buy it for 0.99 USD. Meanwhile, Google Play offers both free and paid versions of the game. For free version though, expect that you won’t get all the levels and see ads being posted during the game.

Well, if haven’t heard of it already, Google Gravity was a “gimmick” from Google where it tweaked its famous Search Interface.
In Google Gravity, there’s gravity so everything not supported will fall. All the elements of the famous Google Search UI including the logo, the search bar, the buttons and the menu bar at the top will fall immediately after entering the experiment page.
But although everything moves, all the functionality of the those elements will remain ” as is”. In the search bar, you can still search but the results will just drop from the top as pulled by the “gravity”.
Check out for yourself Google Gravity.
As most of us might have already expected, Google has finally unleashed its initial set of social games on Google+. The obvious goal is to take on Facebook’s arsenal of games, which most analyst says has skyrocketed Facebook to its current position in the Social networking arena.
Of course, Google just don’t want to bombard Google+ users with games. What makes them different from Facebook is that they allowed their users to “control over when they see games, how they play them and with whom they share their experiences. Games in Google+ are there when they want them and gone when they don’t.
The initial list of their games is a bit small compared to the army of Facebook game apps. The list currently includes Rovio’s Angry Birds, Bejeweled, Zynga Poker and many more. But as more and more people and game developers flock to Google Plus, we can expect that the quantity of games in will explode. And this is not far from reality since Google Plus has seen tremendous growth in just six weeks after release. Current numbers shows that Google+ has already raked over 20 Million registered users even though it is just on a Beta stage and access is currently via invitation only.
Yet, it is too early to predict the success of G+ games. It all boils down to the quality of games as well as the users liking it.
Note: Google Plus games is NOT yet available to ALL users. If you don’t see games on your Google Plus account, well it means that you are not one of the few chosen to try it.But don’t despair, Google said that they will eventually roll it to everyone.
It started as a simple iPhone game app. It spreads itnto different mobile and PC based platforms. It catches millions of people’s attention and not to mention, a big chunk of their time. It conquered the world of stuff toys and subjugated it. Now, the Angry Birds is going to take over another world – movies.
No…no…no… just kidding. But, come to think of it. What if it does, become a movie? Well, here’s a nice spoof video from Rooster Teeth to give you a good idea of what could be coming in the next few months.
