Sokobond celebrates snowmen

To celebrate the recent release of A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build, Sokobond is 50% off for the next week!

If you've enjoyed the wintry puzzling of making snowmen, try mastering the bonds of chemistry. What Sokobond lacks in adorableness and hugs, it more than makes up for in elegance. No chemistry knowledge required!

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.

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.

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.

A deceptively simplistic yet infuriating puzzle game, based upon the atomic bonds found in chemistry... I think. In all honesty it's been a while since I was in school and I've forgotten most of that stuff.

But Sokobond can help you learn some of it again! Most of what you'll learn will be trivia about certain chemicals, but that's still educational, right?

Nevertheless, good for a few hours entertainment, and more captivating than some AAA games out there, with a minimalistic art style and an ambient soundtrack. A nice way to relax.

I love puzzle games, but it can often be hard to find ones that aren't too easy, but that won't eventually give you a brick wall that you can't seem to get around. Sokobond is the perfect balance; it is the right level of difficulty from the very first level and while it will likely give you a good challenge, you won't get so frustrated that you'll never open the game again. Instead, you'll keep coming back for more.

It almost made me miss taking chemistry class, and that's impressive.

Overall, I liked the game. Everything is nicely done, it's a well designed puzzles with lovely aesthetics. The only thing I could carp about is educational aspect of Sokobond. You, basically, just play puzzle. There are interesting facts about certain chemicals after each puzzle, but you tend to rush through them, as you want to advance to the next level.

Buy it.

It's one of the very few little games that are fun challenging and educative at the same time.

It's a minimalistic smooth looking game with chilled ambient music consisting out of >100 purely combinatoric puzzles about constructing increasingly complex molecules ranging from meditative to brainmeltingly difficult.
Each solved level rewards you with interesting factoids about the molecule the level was about

An indydev worth supporting imo

Recension av förhandsvisning
*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

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

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.

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
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'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.
