Have you ever wondered what dinosaurs are made of? Were you ever curious how vampires are created? Do you find entertainment in figuring out different combinations to complete a full set? If are up to a challenge, Little Alchemy is the just the game for you! Little Alchemy is a very simple but very addictive game that will have you trying out various combinations in order to find out what more could possibly be created.
How to Play
The game starts out with the four elements that we all know of – earth, water, air, and fire. The rules are simple: combine the elements to produce new elements, and combine the new ones to produce newer ones. For example, combining fire and water would make steam; combining steam and earth would make a geyser, and so on. It is important to remember that you can only combine two elements at a time. The ultimate goal is to complete all the possible combinations which is 560.
However, the game’s simplicity is only one of its charms. The mechanics of how the game works is what makes it very addicting. The combinations do not just come out from nowhere – they’re based on real life: two wheels form a bicycle, and an hourglass is made of glass with sand. Thus, it becomes a game of the mind in figuring out which two elements would produce the thing that you desire.
Little Alchemy also offers a great layout fit for the game. It divides the screen into two – the workspace and the elements. This layout optimizes the space by using a larger area for the workspace on the left while the elements are arranged in alphabetical order on the right. This makes it easier to scroll through the elements while having a larger space on which to make the combinations. The game utilizes great graphics with a color scheme that is pleasing to the player’s eyes.
On the lower part of the screen appears a number which indicates the combinations that you have made. This starts out as “4/560” indicating that you only have four out of the 560 possible combinations. What’s also great about this game is that there is no time limit so there is no pressure in trying to complete all the combinations except if you challenge yourself to do so.
Like any other game, you can also create an account in order to sync your game with other devices and in order not to lose your progress. In sum, there is nothing to lose but a lot to gain with Little Alchemy. It is a simple game yet it is fun and addicting. And on top of it all, it’s free! So get going and find out what the world is made of!
