    I'd love a modern rehash of The Incredible Machine - but I'm on WP7

    You win some you lose some. People in the know did warn that WP7 had a short shelf life, as the phones weren't upgradeable to WP8.

    Agree. WP7 is a gread device. Had Nokia Lumia 800. Mind you, very boring looking and not that many apps. I just didn't see it picking up. Now back to Galaxy S2 and enjoying every day with it. Will only part for Galaxy S3 or some Google phone

    I loved T.I.M, it was the only game we had installed on the PC's at school, was great to pass the time instead of doing work. Hope this is somewhere near as good as it was.

    The Amazing Alex is what could be called mediocre. It looks nice enough, and has the potential to play very well. But the demo, with 16 levels, is so hand holding even a 3 year old would tire of it's simplicity (I'm guessing).

    It's most likely that the extra 100 levels or so would be more challenging, but the demo doesn't inspire you to purchase the game. Unlike Angry Birds. The AB demo was fabulously addictive and inpired you to purchase the game (except for Android owners who go it free ).

    Try the AA demo by all means, but expect to go 'meh' and uninstall it afterwards.

    I`m enjoying it so far.

    Some of the levels seem a bit naff but for a less than a pint its pretty good.

    Totally agree. Completed and just thought why would I buy it. I got a game called apparatus in the 10p sale a while ago and it does a similar job but much better. They should have just stuck adverts on it and made it free - I might have stuck it out then.
