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

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.

Sokobond is a little puzzle game thats all about the world of chemistry. It gives you control of one atom and with that atom you have to move and form bonds with other atoms. While everything is simplified in the game, it is interesting to see real world science placed into a little puzzle game like this. Plus at the end of each puzzle you get a little chemistry fact and who doesnt love facts.

Overall Sokobond is the definition of a good simple puzzle game, one thats not too easy, but also not too difficult. It gives you a chance to relax and just play a game, not really worrying about anything else and I would definitely recommend it. I would also recommend not cheating or looking at the solutions for the puzzles, because while some are hard, there are always simple ways to do them.

The first game I've played that makes science fun while being relatively accurate. Sokobond represents stylized, interactive chemistry. It has simple, easy to understand rules (sokoban + chemistry bonds), and at the same time, it has challenging, engaging puzzles. Also, Sokobond is one of the few logic games that explores creating and destroying structures in a really satisfying way (Pudding Monsters is another gem that does that).

A very meditative and absorbing puzzle game. Great for either casual or obsessive gameplay. Each section builds on what you've learned before, and you might even pick up a few chemistry pointers along the way. If you like sokoban type games, picking up this little gem is a no-brainer. Even if you don't like sokoban type games, give this one a try. You'll be glad you did!

PROS:
- lightning fast install (67MB)
- Clean, minimalist interface
- Clever puzzles

CONS:
- Lack of mouse support, especially in game menu
- Lack of HOW-TO. The game basically assumes you know what to do (ie bonding molecules)

This game will make you feel stupid.

While it's spiritual predecessor got bogged down in the one mechanic, Sokobond features an incredibly engaging base mechanic and gradually introduces new ones to support it and even make the game slightly more scientifically accurate. The facts given about each molecule you create are a fitting reward to solve each puzzle. This is a puzzle game that doesn't take lighlty to button mashing. You won't get far without thinking hard...

While it will make you feel stupid at times, Sokobond isn't stupid, it's awesome.

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.

*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.

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.

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.

Sokobond is an amazing game about chemistry and the elements.
It is a very hard puzzle game and will most likely drive you insane after the first 20 levels.
It also teaches you principles of physics and chemistry without you knowing unless you already understand them.
There are 118+ Levels and all of them are educational, brain busting and beatiful looking.
Pros-
Beautiful Art/Graphics
Brain Busting Puzzles
Actually Educational
Lots of Levels
Takes ages to complete
Incredibly Small Game (Less than 1/2 a GB)
Cons-
No Story (Who really cares wih a game of this quality)
$9.99
I rate this amazing game-
9.5/10

Really enjoyed this game, well made puzzles (you do not need a working knowledege of chemistry, however it does help some and makes it more enjoyable). Some of the puzzles are very tricky, they appear very easy and can stump you really fast. Gives a feeling of accomplishment after each puzzle and its nice how you can go to another area when one does stump you, so you can just come back later. overall very well made and fun game.

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.

Absolutely charming.

Each atom can handle a certain number of chemical bonds; physical contact creates the bonds. Move them around through obstacles to try and create a stable molecule with no empty bonds. Each time you succeed, you are rewarded with a fact about the chemical compound you produced and its uses.

By the end of this, I'll probably have the chemical formulas for a lot of basic compounds memorized, and I view that as a positive. Even without the chemistry wrapper, it would be a good puzzle game -- the chemistry bit takes it the extra mile.
