Sokobond est un merveilleux Sokoban pondu par Draknek et finaliste de plusieurs festivals de jeu vidéo.

Le concept? C'est tout simplement un sokoban avec pour thème la chimie. Aucune connaissance en chimie n'est requise, mais vous apprendrez certainement plein de choses, pour peu que vous comprenniez l'anglais.
En effet, le jeu n'est disponible qu'en Anglais, mais c'est l'un des rares jeux qui possèdent un gameplay tellement simple (et non moins intéréssant) que vous n'aurez pas besoin de comprendre l'anglais pour vous amuser dessus.

Pour ce qui est des graphismes, le jeu est très bien fait, merci Adobe AIR, et vaut vraiment son prix, pour environ 10H de jeu pour réussir les niveaux.

Alors certes il y a des jeux flash gratuits qui reprennent le concept du jeu, mais ce jeu en vaut la peine, car les 124 levels du mode normal sont très bien foutus, avec une belle courbe de progession au niveau de la difficulté, et vous aurez accès a quelques niveaux bonus si vous terminez le jeu, qui seront un véritable challenge.

Au niveau des succés, ceux-ci sont très bien faits et reprennent la progression du jeu, rien de très surprennant.

Bref, le concept, gameplay et mécaniques font de ce jeu une éxpérience à ne pas rater. Le level-design et l'atmosphère du jeu sont bien foutus, le prix n'est pas excessif pour un jeu d'une telle qualité, et surtout, ce jeu est accessible à tous.

*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)

WARNING FOR LINUX USERS


Warning for people wanting Sokobond for linux, it uses Adobe Air, which is no longer supported. The "latest" version of Air is about 4 releases older than the actual latest, and I cant even get it to install on Ubuntu 14.04. Its incredibly out of date and insecure

Its almost criminal that they claim linux support. The author made a comment back in July 2014 about modifying the install script, which still hasnt been changed. I would therefor not recommend this game to linux users

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.

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

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.

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.

I've found this game on notonsteam.com and instabought it, worth it.

The mechanics are based on 倉庫番 (sōkoban) which is a type of transport puzzle.
In this game, the player will push atoms (displayed as Lewis' Ionic dot structure) to form molecules (Lewis Theory of Bonding).
After completing the task, it will display a small info card about that completed molecule.
It is pretty educational but if the molecule repeats, it won't give you any new factoid :(

The sound of this game is just special and unique. The feedback sounds are diffused amazingly in the ambient background, building up a very calm scenario. For a non time-based puzzle, I didn't expected such good sound works. But like the molecules information, the sounds are very limited too.

The game progression is very simple, it follows the complexity of the molecules. The maps can be solved using single-agent search algorithm. But sokoban are known as NP-hard problems (Non-deterministic Polynomial-time hard). The puzzles can exponentially grow the branching factor of the moves which can be very challenging.

Sokoban can be a very entertaining way to keep your brain active but cannot be considered a game for the casual.

Sokobond
Rating : 7/10

Educational puzzler about chemistry. Hard but it might be easier if you know what the bindings should. I don't care about atoms and such so not my kind of game. Recommended nontheless for those who love O, C, H etc.

If you have any interest in Chemistry then this is a great puzzler which I think you would enjoy. I've found it useful for learning the names and structures of different, unfamiliar simple molecules such as Hydrazine (N2H4), Isocynanic acid (HCNO) and Dimethyl Ether (CH3OCH3). This indie title is well worth my recommendation and I look forward to any future releases from the developers Alan Hazelden and Harry Lee.

If you fancy yourself fond of puzzle games you may want to consider taking a look at this one.

You control one atom per level and form bonds with other charged elements by using the electrons to cancel eachother out. Once all the free electrons have been eradicated the compound is formed and the level is complete.

There are many twists and turns added as you progress so prepare to get frustrated. I'm not huge on the genre and found this game quite challenging. (Fortunately for me you don't have to be a chemist to play this game as I assume it only loosely borrows it's core mechanics off the bonding of elements.)

If you're actually a chemist, I imagine Sokobond would be a bit disappointing. It's a puzzle game first and foremost.

There are only five types of atoms, running from zero to four valence electrons. With a grasp of organic chem, you'll have the advantage of immediately knowing your target molecule. The challenge is in figuring out how to bond these atoms in a confined 2D space. It can be utterly frustrating but so very addictive.

Sokobond is a great little puzzler that teaches you about chemical bonds. These kinds of games have the special potential to engender a sense of both mental exercise and relaxation, which, in this case, are fostered in Sokobond's spirit of curiosity, well-apportioned puzzle design, and crisp minimalist aesthetic.

This is a beautiful game that encourages so much spatial thinking, as well as giving tidbits of information about the molecules that you end up making. Very fun, very chill, beautiful music and graphics.
