    SpaceChem Mobile's review

    Published: 2014-06-09, by .

    Talk about original gameplay: Construct complex chemical factories to efficiently transform raw elements

    • Ultra original and brainy as heck
    • Genre-mashup glee
    • Comprehensive tutorial and growing complexity
    • Very difficult to play on smaller screens

    "Action and reaction"

    Zachtronics' SpaceChem is super brainy, super complex, super difficult, and just plain super. You're a reactor engineer, and your goal is to set up a series of processes to transform raw elements into specific chemical products. Do it efficiently and effectively to meet quotas and outperform your peers. The puzzles are rich and complicated, including plenty that are user designed. The tutorial's enough to give you the basic idea, but you'll need to bust your brain over a couple levels before getting the hang of how to make the most out of your atom smashing. Note that the game is designed for tablets - playing on a small mobile device will likely just be frustrating, although you can feel free to try.

    An amazing game (I own it for PC too) but nigh unplayable on a mobile. The symbols are too small and controls too fiddly for a phone screen. As a tablet app it would probably be acceptable. A real shame, I was hoping that they had found a work around for the inevitable couple of my roles issues.

    This game made me time travel; unfortunately forward only. Today I started this up on PC at around 9AM. The next moment I remember is 4PM, when I realised I'm hungry as hell (fortunately, I had plenty of water to drink at hand). This is the first game to achieve this in a long time. The backstory is nice (although has very little to play with the game itself). The controls are a bit small on my mobile, but still usable. The puzzles are sometimes hard, but you don't have time pressure on you. If you are into puzzle games, you should definitely try this one.

    Premature optimization is the root of all evil and hella fun game play. I just wish the controls at the top weren't placed where they activate the Android notification pulldown.

    Would be 5 stars but crashes alot, never lost progress so not a big deal. Amazing game otherwise! Love the difficulty. Makes me think

    I love spacechem so I just outright bought this game but the port to mobile seriously lets it down. It's like no one actually tested it. The biggest challenge in this game is not the puzzles, but rather actually trying to move the miniscule controls around the screen. Having some kind of zoom would have helped massively. Also the play /pause buttons are just as difficult to use, I've given up ever trying to pause now. The other thing is that whenever I grab a control from the top, the android bar comes down and blocks me from grabbing any more controls until it disappears again. Simply moving the controls to a different location would improve this. The game itself is fantastic but the controls make it extremely frustrating
