Amazing Alex Cheats And Tips
Reach for the stars with our beginner's guide to Rovio's new game.
Let's See What We Can See
Before placing anything on the playing field, just let the physics of the game take its course and see what happens. Any objects that drop from height automatically are a big clue for what you need to do next.
Ball dropping from a great height but doesn't travel anywhere? That may well be the key to kicking off a chain of events that begins with the boxing-glove-in-a-box being placed underneath.
Practice Makes Perfect
You'll get most of the way through the bulk of the levels just by solving the main objective, rather than gathering all three stars. Those stars are handy for opening up new levels quicker, or just being able to skip a very tedious challenge, but achieving the main objective will get you most of the way through the game.
Consult The Internet!
If you're stuck (really, really stuck and don't mind cheating just a teensy little bit) then you can get the answer outright from a fellow player. When you're in a level, hit the three dots in the top left-hand corner of the screen, then touch the lightbulb.
From there you'll be able to select a solution from the bottom half of the screen. Of course, then you've got to replicate the solution, but at least you've got a head-start!
Try not to over-think things too much. It's entirely possible to finish many of the more complicated levels with playable objects left over. As a general rule, if the stars are in an arc, you should be setting up an object trajectory in some way, and grabbing a decent reward from the level fairly easily.
If they're more spread out, well, get your thinking cap on because you're going to have to set up some serious chain reactions!
