Ever heard of Rube Goldberg machines? They’re contraptions that perform simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways. Tom & Jerry aficionados will certainly know what that’s all about, and so will fans of Rovio’s Amazing Alex.
If you want in on the fun, we’re happy to spread the word that the makers of Angry Birds have released a free version of Amazing Alex for iPhone and iPad owners.
Amazing Alex Free lets you “set the objects up to bounce, pop, ricochet, bash, and crash into each other and create an elaborate Rube Goldberg device!”
You can use all the toys in Alex’s room to create crazy gadgets and even share your works with the world.
Amazing Alex is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad, and requires iOS 4.2 or later.
