I found Little Alchemy in the Play Store on my phone. I was intrigued. You have to combine the elements to create more elements to create more elements… The game doesn’t have instructions. It’s pretty obvious what you have to do.

You start with earth, air, fire and water. Combining them you get wind, lava, rain, ponds, plants, and much, much more. The objects become more evolved over time. You create day, night and twilight as well as Super Novas and Atomic bombs. Some of things you create are man-made, like fire works and soda.

They have some secret combinations that don’t show on your menu of combinations on the right hand side. My favorite is the Tardis (Time and Space). The game does pop up with suggestions. At one point it told me to make the sun. It took me a while to figure out that combination. If you do get stuck, the game has a hint system.

This game plays into my OCD hard-core. I have a method. I take one thing and then combine it with everything down the line to see if it will combine. As soon as I put the game down I start wondering, what if I combine a unicorn with the ocean or a bird with ice?!?!?! There are 540 combinations that are outright. There are also SECRET combinations. If you get stuck the game can give you hints or you can easily search on the internet for libraries explaining the combinations.

Honestly, you won’t learn anything specific from this game but it does make you think about what elements go into our every day lives. This is a fun distraction from the every day. The game is also a free download.

Here are some exciting combinations I discovered.

Water + Cold = Snow!

Snow + Surfer = Snow Board!

Wizard + Bird = Owl

That’s all I’m giving you for now. I don’t want to spoil the experience for you.

The creator,┬áJakub Koziol,┬ádid not come out with a second edition of the game. In the play store you’ll find Alchemy Fusion 2 and a bunch of other games like this. These are clones made by different companies. The original game creator doesn’t seem to have any other games out. From his blog he’s currently trying to help people live with ADD. The blog is an interesting look at the game creator. I tend to bounce from one thing to another myself and his illustrations in the blog really show how some creative minds work. Read it knowing he’s working through things after the success of his game.

BTW: My recommendation is to turn it to night mode. That way the background is back instead of white. This just makes it easier to see.
