Sprinkle attracted quite the following when it debuted in 2011, using its realistic water physics to show people what Tegra 2-equipped tablets were capable of. Players controlled a wooden water cannon mounted on a crane and fought fires across a diverse assortment of stages, with water pushing rocks and giant blocks of ice around in order to save houses in hard to reach places. The fire itself was as pretty to watch as it was a pain in the rear, spreading from house to house as gamers discovered that maybe, just maybe, they weren't cut out to be firemen.

If you're the gaming type, you probably didn't get much done this January.

On that note, the full title is "NEW ORBIT: Episode 1," so there's probably more on the table.

Because after today, Rovio will have a game that isn't Angry Birds-related on the Play Store. What is the game? Do you even care? It's Amazing Alex. If you've ever played a contraption-building game, it'll look familiar to you.
