April Best Game of the Month and 3rd BEST RATING IN THE MARKETPLACE !!!!

FOR A SHORT TIME: Get the companion “Alchemic Extras 7” fully functional trial!!!
...brings Live Tile, Online Backup and Riddle Hints to the game ! Get it here:

Marketplace Description

Are you a good Alchemist ?

You are tasked with rebuilding the universe, bit by bit, or rather Element by Element. Starting with just 6 Elements (no, not just 4) and combining them using your skills, wits and knowledge, you will unlock 1600 more and 26 Realms.

Do you think you can you discover: Atomic Energy, Zeppelin, Chuck Norris, Atlantis or even ‘Angry Birds’ ?


Similar games include Doodle God, but please note that this is brand new, built from scratch, taking the concept directly from the old 80s ‘Alchemy’ and reinventing it in the process.



IT’S HUGE !
The game includes 1500 discoverable Elements, but grows 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.

UNLOCK REALMS:
As you progress, you will find new Elements which will unlock more Realms

SCORING AND TARGETS:
A scoring system is included (but you can also have fun without it) that gives big rewards for target key Elements or unlocking new Realms. You also get a Target Element of the Day !

ONLINE SCORES:
Once you feel like bragging, you can post your World Discovery % and score on the Leaderboard. Leave a comment and tease your friends !

FRIEND MODE:
Have a friend who wants to play ? Check “Friend Mode” in settings.

HINTS:
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 is available. If you are really stuck please check the companion app !

WORLD STATUS:
Shows Realms. By tapping on an element tile you can see the reactions where it took part.

WIKIPEDIA:
Helpful and interesting, you can access an Element page by tapping on its name.

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 !

Link is up. Knock yourself off finding combinations !

Please feel free to use this forum, as well as the suggest button, to propose new elements. Earn a place in the app credits !

[EDIT] I've already received a ton of suggestions, THANKS ! Most of them are actually going to be implemented in the next release. If things keep going this way, I'll have to add at least a couple of Realms...

Scoring and goals !
From the comments on blogs and marketplace it seems that while many people already know the game, some are mystified by its goal.

So in the next update...

Scoring and goals system !

Wordpress Blog
After discussing a lot on a few different wp7 games/app forums about scoring, new elements and such, I've created a wordpress blog about it:

http://alchemicphone7.wordpress.com/

feel free to direct suggestions and comments here or there.

Update 1.2
Updated to 1.2 with the brand new scoring system. Mostly you will get rewarded base on how hard it was to reach the element

You can find the scoring system in the game of course and in the blog:

http://alchemicphone7.wordpress.com/

Also since someone was really-really stuck, help tip can be obtained every hour

Have fun !

Thanks to everyone that sent suggestions !

A first -small- batch of them, around 40 new elements, have been pushed to the marketplace certification and you should see it soon.

For anybody that is having problems finding 'Radiation', as reported in the blog, there was a small bug which is solved in this version.

Keep sending suggestions !
