Hi,

I just released a puzzle game on Google Play Store: Molecools
It's about sliding atoms in order to assemble different chemical compounds.
If you remember Atomix on the Amiga 500 ,you know what I'm talking about


Features:
- 35 different compounds to build
- Relaxing music made by our forum member Eric Matyas --> http://soundimage.org/
- No time limit
- Achievements and leaderboard
- Star system for replayability
- Detailed info about each compound
- ...and more

The paid full version ( 0.69€ ) features 35 levels, achievements and leaderboard, and can be found here: Molecools
I also released a free demo version featuring the first 12 levels: Molecools DEMO



PROMO CODES AVAILABLE. FEEL FREE TO SEND ME A PM!












The game is made with AppGameKit Tier 1.
Any feedback is greatly welcome
Enjoy!


Have a great weekend and stay healthy,
PSY

Thanks blink0k

TBH, coding the engine didn't take long.
Playtesting the levels consumed most of the time ( damn, there must be a shorter solution )

I just found out that I can generate PROMO codes in the Google Play DEV Console, just like in Steam

With a promo code, you can purchase the full version of Molecools for FREE.

Anyone who is interesting in a code, send me a PM and I will send you a code.

TBH??? lol (another one causing suspicions)

Seriously though, this is impressive as it takes a lot of research and/or knowledge to attempt this, or any, educational endeavor.

Since it did not take you long, then I suspect a prior knowledge rather than the dependency on research.

Much too geeky for me as chemistry is not my thing. (only formulas with Carbon Hydrogen Nitrogen and Oxygen have I been previously exposed to)

This does have educational potential though, so I can foresee this evolving into something big.

P.S.
The graphics looks really nice too.

You're right, I chose chemistry as advanced course in specialist subjects ( if that's the term lol ).
As all chemical compounds in Molecools consist of two or more ( except Dioxygen, which is a molecule ) of the 6 elements of life ( CHNOPS ), the biggest challenge was to find suitable chemical compounds which are relatively well-known though, and which also fit in the difficulty curve. And which look good

You don't need any knowledge of chemistry to play the game ( at all ). Just recreate the shown compound

Thank you I used some free resources, some resources from Giant Asset Pack 1&2 ( especially the achievement GFX ), and some stuff of my own.

That was easier to figure out than who Jack the Ripper was. (elementary is your clue for that one Watson)

I found it humorous that an intentionally misspelled letter could throw them off so easily, and how his novel's character poked fun of their incompetency and pointed out their lack of discovering details to the clues they had available that would have solved the case.

H. H. Holmes was my second suspect, considering that time frame and the circumstances of the case. (he was a surgeon as police suspected the killer to be - was the name Holmes a coincidence? or did Sir Arthur Conan Doyle know who the killer was, but wanted the police to discover it by their own deduction rather than tell them?)

Too bad the lack of records for that era prevents confirmation of either of their whereabouts at the time. (although H. H. Holmes was believed to have traveled to London on several occasions, he may have used another alias for the ships' records)

I am convinced it was one of the two though. (pay attention to the date of the short story that inspired the character of Sherlock Holmes and the novel itself)

Quote: ""There's the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it.""


Even when mapping the novel's location of Sherlock's residence and the Jack the Ripper murders, you will find that they are not that far apart. (both near the river, as the brother's name Mycroft suggests, but in opposite directions of the center of greater London)
