Alchemy's review

    Published: 2011-05-16, by .

    Alchemy is a fun and educational Android app based on creating elements and materials

    • Amount of materials to discover
    • Cool interface and performance
    • Timewaster
    • Not really addictive (boring after a while)
    • Not very many extras and settings
    • On-screen distribution of elements is a bit messy

    "Introduce yourself to the art of creating new elements with Alchemy"

    This is one of those apps which is especially designed for the inquiring mind and requires both skill and imagination. You start with just the four base elements: water, fire, earth and air. You have to combine these elements to create new ones.

    For example, water mixed with fire will generate alcohol; earth mixed with air will generate dust, and so on. To combine them, all you have to do is select one of the elements by tapping and holding for 1 second, and then drag it over to one of the other elements. The resulting material can then, in turn, be combined with one of the four elements to generate new ones. To retrieve the four elements once they’ve been used, you just have to double-click on the screen. To duplicate elements, it’s exactly the same: double-click on the element you want to duplicate. That's the dynamic of the app/game and what makes it so addictive. There are 370 elements to discover!

    It has to be said that although it’s addictive to begin with, you’ll probably get fed up after a while. This is the free version with ads and without the "undo" button". You can upgrade to Alchemy Premium for $4.95.

    Alchemy was developed by Andrey 'Zed' Zaikin, a promising developer who also launched Alchemy Premium on the Android Market (the paid version of Alchemy with new features) and a Pascal Interpreter in beta version.

    Alchemy isn’t productive, nor will it make your life easier, but it’s a good app for time-wasting and it’ll keep you entertained- at least for a while, anyway.

    I used to love the earlier version of alchemy however now the game has changed. Can't clear my settings option. Screen just vibrates. Duplication always. I expected the new version to be better then the previous... Unfortunately left me no choice but to uninstall... Can't proceed ahead in the game.

    Ruddy brilliant game. Played it to completion before now it's back with more elements so playing it again. Results in texts between me and the hub that no one else would get ie "you'll never guess how you make beetroot" love it!
