Alchemy Genetics is a new combination game for Android much like its original predecessor Alchemy. Whatâ€™s changed is that this time youâ€™ll be combining cute animals. Currently there are more than 500 combinations that you can make starting with 4 basic animals. Thereâ€™s no obvious logic while combining the animals, just remember to have fun and maybe youâ€™ll notice some of the humor along the way.
Veering away from the neutral welcome screen of the original game, this time the page is lighter and more colorful.
You can choose to play with a background or just a solid color. In my opinion, the background makes the animals harder to see. On the top youâ€™ll see the combination of animals youâ€™re making and the resulting new creature. This time too, you can just tap on the animals instead of dragging them on top of each other to combine.
If you press the lightbulb button, this is what appears. It gives you hints on what to combine next.
If you drag over the animal icons to the question mark button, this comes up. Itâ€™s a description of the animal and the combinations youâ€™ve unlocked using the said animal.
Clicking on the plus button brings you to the animal list screen. It only shows the animals available to you. You may choose to select only a few or all of the animals to be placed on your workboard.
I had fun at first when I tried this game but it quickly became boring. Unlike the original game, it was becoming a game of chance. I can just randomly tap the animals and hope that a combination would appear. It would have been something more if it required you to really think about the animals youâ€™re combining. Well, if youâ€™re up to the challenge of finding out all 500 combinations, youâ€™re welcome to do so.
