Alchemy Classic [by NIAsoft] game for Android is a remake of an old MS-Dos game “Alchemy”. This is one of the most downloaded puzzle games for android, but it really doesn’t require much brain work to play it.Â TheÂ aim in this game is to create all 188 elements, by mixing the ones you already have. The mixing process is quite informative and slightly addictive. To me the game didn’t seem so hard to play but requiredÂ quite some time to finish.
The game is based on “evolution” process, as stated in the game description, so it is more realistic that other games our there, which make you mix unrealistic things that result in more unrealistic things. I guess that’s why it falls into puzzle category. In Alchemy Classic for android you start off with Air, Water, Fire and Earth, them mix them to get such new elements as Lightning, which you can not use to mix too.
You start with just the four basic elements: air, earth, water and fire, and you mix them to find new elements. For example, combining air and fire makes lightening; water and earth make swamp; and lightening and swamp make amino acids. To find a new combination, you need to drag and drop one element onto another. Once you’ve unlocked an element, you can add it to the alchemy table from the game menu, thus increasing your element count.
What I like:
- The game is quite simple yet addictive, playable in a few sittings
- No ads in the app until 2011
What I dislike:
- Isn’t much of a puzzle
- NotÂ re-playable
