About

This is a brand new Alchemy game for Windows Phone, taking its concept from the old DOS game ‘Alchemy’.

You start with 6 elements (no, not just 4) and proceed combining them to form new ones, in order to recreate the entire known world/universe of hundreds of elements.

 

The game includes 1400+ discoverable Elements, divided in 26 Realms, but grows substantially with updates and your suggestions. In fact if you have an idea for a combination or feel that two elements should react, the game provides a direct link for the suggestion.

You can also post you score on the online Leaderboard. Have a friend who wants to play ? Check ‘Friend Mode’ in the settings

Please note this game and its combinations were built from scratch and not copied from other games. Finding some key elements can be a (reasonable) challenge but it wouldn’t be fun otherwise. A multiple hint functionality that doesn’t spoil too much of the research process and send you on the right track is available in the ‘World Status’ page. If you are really – really – stuck please check the Blog. Feel like a combination should behave differently? Leave a comment in the blog !

The World Status Page shows the Realms and their discovered elements, also by clicking on an element tile you can see the reactions where it takes part. A scoring system is included (but completely optional, you can enjoy the game ignoring that) where you get big rewards for key elements or unlocking new realms. You can see a few ‘Target’ elements in the scoring help page and a you get a Random Target Element of the day too !

If you’re interested, you can also see information about an element by pressing on its name on the World Status page, to open its Wikipedia page.
Game is free with ad support.

Please note that this game is brand new, it was built from scratch, both
the interface and it’s reactions. I played the old Alchemy game on MS-DOS and
later incarnations, but noticed they tend to follow always the same reaction
tree and sometimes I find some stuff repetitive.
With this game I tried to reset and rebuild the world, following scientific and historic logic when
possible, and also attempting to use as much of the Metro interface as I
could.

Following that principle, there is readily available a link to
suggest new combinations. At the same time I’d also be glad to receive emails
with comments about reactions already in place.

The Alchemic World in your phone is in expansion and you’re welcome to contribute to it !
