100 Word Review - #T1 - SpaceChem

Pretty, isn't it?

Genre - Indie, Casual

Metascore - 84%

Developer - Zachtronics Industries

Other Games by Developer - N/A

Tom's Current Playtime - 6.3 hours

'SpaceChem' is a game that I go back to every now and then before realising the reason why I stopped playing it. It truly is a shining example of how gaming can challenge the very depths of one's intelligence. The idea behind 'SpaceChem' is to create a system to take some input and deliver the required output. Some of these systems can become complex to the point of frustration, however I've yet to play a game to deliver the level of satisfaction that this delivers when you spend an hour of trial and error to come up with the solution.

Tom's Score - 8/10

  1. Even playing through the tutorial several times, I still have very little clue how to actually 'play' this 'game'.
