Sokobond is simplistically beautiful. It is challenging, but explains its game mechanics well, even though it doesn't have any text.

Fun lil' puzzle game that will teach you timbits of chemistry as you play. Challenging but fair with a pleasantly simple aesthetic. Worth picking up at full value.

Good time-waster puzzle. You might even learn something if you aren't careful.

A cool little puzzler with bits and pieces of info about chemistry as you play. I suppose it is a neat way to visualize single and double bonds, etc., but this cannot be considered a learning tool beyond anything but the very, very basics. As a puzzle game, it is challenging and complex, akin to a book of brain teasers. The "no" rating is to say, there's about 50 cents or a dollar worth of entertainment here. Get it on sale, or in a bundle, or search "brainteasers" online and have about as much fun with whatever comes up in search results.

I've really been liking this game. It gets pretty hard around the alkali metals and the noble gases, so be prepard to be frustrated. You don't need to have any knowledge of chemistry to play this game, but it does help. If you used to play Sokoban or you're just a chemistry nerd (like me), this is a nice simple game.

In general, sokoban has the opportunity to be a fantastic puzzler. Of my 90 minutes or so with the game, the thing that most captured me was the application of (albiet basic) chemistry, and the clever ways they used these principles in sokoban. If that's someting that intrigues you, and you can handle the mind-♥♥♥♥ery of sokoban, this game is definately worth it on a sale.

HOWEVER, in my time with Sokobond, I soon realized that I absolutely ♥♥♥♥ing hate sokoban puzzles, so the cute chemistry puzzles soon turned into 2D-spacial nightmares in my case. Beware, this is a sokoban game first and a chem puzzler second.

CONCLUSION: Neutral review. Grab on a sale if you can handle complex sokoban.

*reviewed using press copy provided by developer

beautiful way to make a puzzle game. easy to play and each level is extremely well made, so much time and planning must have went into this.

wonderful if you're a fan of slider puzzles. no chemistry knowledge required, it might be helpful but the design is intuitive. everything makes sense right away, no timers either!

just a nice little game for basically anyone

(if you're colorblind, everything's well labeled and the colors are only cosmetic, no matching light green to light blue with a 3 second timer. if you can't see the border colors though that might be a major issue, maybe leave a comment if you can just to verify <3)

In an era where "innovation" means adding micropayments to a 15-year-old franchise, Alan Hazelden finds a unique mechanic, dresses it up in a design so crisp it comes with vinaigrette dressing on the side, and presents it like it's something he does all the time. Which it is, because he's some sort of puzzle-game-making superhuman.

If you don't play this game, you're not allowed to say you enjoy puzzle games to anyone ever again.

"Sokobond" is the best kind of game - one that is fun and educational... FUNDUCATONAL, if you will. This elegant little puzzler is a lot like that science teacher you had in middle school (hi Mr. Hellmund! Why yes I've applied myself - I review video games in my free time!) who's enthusiasm for the scientific method is only eclipsed by his increasingly colorful ties. This is pretty, this is challenging, and you'll learn a thing or two. And don't be too intimidated; this game doesn't require you to know a lick of chemistry. If you're a fan of puzzlers and like factoids, check it out. I think it's a refreshing change of pace. It isn't BREAKING the mold, not really. This has been done many times before, but that isn't really all that BAD either.

My brain is now puzzled. Even though you don't need any understanding of chemistry what so ever, if you enjoy puzzle games this game is most certainly for you.

At first glance, we may be reminded of the classic Atomix from the Amiga and C64 era. Apart from building molecules, this is an entirely different game that feels very unique and genuine. The staggering 144 levels will keep you busy for quite some time as it took me about 12 hours to beat. The puzzles themselves are easy enough for the average person to beat while not feeling silly doing so and difficult enough to challenge every mind. The basic premise is controlling one atom to move, bond, break, turn other atoms to complete a molecule - all within a set of boundary. The only letdown is atom variety as you'll only be seeing C, O, H, N and He which can and will get boring once you're close to completing the game.

It is worthy of mentioning that the game runs on Adobe Air and there have been reports coming from Linux users that it does not run on some occasions as Adobe has ceased linux support.
Although the game would greatly benefit from Steam Workshop integration, the developer has stated he does not wish to implement such features in the foreseeable future - a shame as user created levels would keep the game and its community alive for longer.

For the fan of the puzzle genre, Sokobond will quench a thirst for simple 2D puzzlers. The average gamer should give it a try as its addictive nature may surprise you playing it more and more. If you have a personal vendetta against these types of games - stay clear of this one.

I usually don't write reviews, but from the minute I started this game I was amazed! Really smart ideas and I really love how there's small notes about every molecule! I'm a lab geek in profession and this was right up my alley <3

Sokobond is an excellent puzzle game. It is a psuedo chemistry game where you have move an atom around a grid forming molecules by touching other atoms.

The game requires precise moves, in the right order to create the correct molecular bondage. It is so fiendish that it offers a real challenge and lots of head scratching despite providing an infinite undo.

The game is also nicely paced and the level menu is well designed, unlocking levels as you progress. I found it simple to pick up, and new concepts were introduced steadily.

Sokobond is a nice little puzzle game with some questionable views of chemistry.

The game involves you controlling one atom in a grid structure, and you move the atom around the grid forming bonds with other atoms [or not, in the case of noble gases]. Each atom is a simplified representation of its real-world counterpart, focusing mostly on the number of bonds it can form.

The puzzles in this game range from simple to quite tricky, and it took me quite a few hours to complete the entire thing without cheating. [Don't cheat, it's very satisfying when you solve a puzzle]. The mechanics require you to do a lot of lateral and reverse thinking, which is quite good.

Simple graphics and sound design, which works well for a puzzle game. The controls use either a keyboard or a controller, both of which are again, very simple [LUDR + undo/reset].

Definitely a good simple [but not easy] puzzle game.

I love puzzles but I usually play them in small doses.

The two hours I've played Sokobonds were in one sitting and I stopped because it was getting late. Fun and addictive.

Addendum: The facts on the bonus levels are hilarious.

If you like either puzzle games or chemistry, then Sokobond will be right up your alley. The core component of Sokobond is to combine elements together to create molecules. Sounds simple, right? As with any other puzzle game, the puzzles in Sokobond can become deceptively hard. Whilst the design is simple, it doesn't distract from the core gameplay.

After you get to grips with the understanding of the molecule fusion, the game will throw a few curveballs at you, allowing you to split bonds or create double bonds, for example, furthering the possibilites of creation and puzzle solving. A small neat touch is that after you beat a level, you're given a fact about the molecule you just created. You really can learn while you play!

Overall, for it's price and enjoyability, Sokobond gets 8.5/10.
