SpaceChem is a puzzle game that deals with atoms and molecules.

I don't really think the story makes that much sense, but where this game really excells is in the puzzles.

The game is made up of chapters and levels. Each chapter will introduce one or two new new gameplay features. The levels take you through an easy tutorial of how to use the new element, and gets progressively more challenging. This learning curve is very good.

As for how the levels themselves work, you are given various tools and a grid. The job is to move elements (like hydrogen/carbon etc.) around, and join them to form molecules which you then pipe out. It initially seems easy but once you add mulitple reactors piping out to each other it quicky adds more of a challenge.

My only issue is, if I find myself becoming fixated on ridiculously complicated solutions. You can't skip levels if you are finding them too complicted. This means if you are completely stuck and can't progress unless you can solve each level sequentially.

This game is controlled with a mouse, but has keyboard shortcust to make things easier to control. This works really well, in my opinion.

The graphics are very simple, which is good as it makes it easy to see what exactly you're doing.

The music and sounds in this game are very nice.

There are extra challenges included once you complete the game, and ones that can earn you extras in TF2, it seems. This coupled with the wide number of challenges means the game definitely has a very good play-through time.

Definitely buy this game if you like puzzles, but don't buy it for it's chemical/scientific accuracy.

Having played through the base game, Spacechem is a great puzzle game at it's core.

Pros - The puzzles. They become increasing harder as you go along, but it is pretty steady. Each set of puzzles build on skills you have acquired from the previous. There are challenges associated with many of the puzzles. You do not have to complete them to beat the game, but they really make you think and work for the achievement. They can be tough, but I enjoyed solving them. Nothing in the game is forced on you with the challenges and achievements. It saves your progress so you can keep moving forward in the game and go back later to beat the challenges. I really felt a sense of accomplishment finishing this game. Many puzzle games become the a+b =c formula and thus, boring. Space Chem held to the end.

The controls and UI worked really well. Learning the hotkeys helps. There are many videos on You Tube. Really cool after you beat a puzzle, you can see how others did it. I did not see any of my solutions online and there are may ways to solve each one. The instruction on new tools were good. Told you what you needed to know and left you to figure out how to employ them. The periodic chart was a useful addition.

Cons – The story outside the puzzles was a cheese sandwich with the crust (Try eating one and you'll see what I mean, dry and chewy, just sayin'). Not the worst I have seen, but after while I didn't bother. I mention this only to point out it does not take away from the great puzzles. That is the heart of this great gem. If you don't like the story, skip it. The graphics do not interfere with the game at all. They were functional.

I highly recommend this game if you enjoy puzzles that challenge your critical thinking and problem solving abilities. This is an exceptional game. Skip the story, solve the puzzles. You'll feel smarter, I do.

You know that feeling where you can spend hours meticulously working on a solution to a puzzle game only to find out at the very end that it won't work, and so you spend even more hours attempting to kludge it to work and then the entire thing becomes a mess but now you've invested all this time and you don't want to have to start from scratch? Well I have kidney stones

SpaceChem is a genius game about "chemistry", although you do not have to know much chemistry to play this game. Players are to design a set of instructions and algorithms for molecules to react and pass through for them to reach their output space. This game is quite challenging, and you will have to search for errors or optimize your algorithm. It is, in a sense, very similar to programming. I have spent hours playing this game because it challenged my mind and kept me thoroughly entertained. This is one of the most creative game I have ever seen and I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys intellectual challenge.

I'm not all that much of a puzzle person, so SpaceChem didn't hook me a whole lot. But I did enjoy what I played of it And, if you enjoy puzzle games, then I would be very surprised if you don't enjoy this game. I know a couple of people who play this game a LOT.
It has really nice music too.
I would definitely recommend SpaceChem.

I absolutely love this game! Despite its appearance as some sort of "chemistry" game, it is really an exercise in programming logic sequences. The user interface is tight, the sound effects are good, and the music is awesome. I haven't had this kind of fun since Rocky's Boots on the Commodore 64!

Sheesh, where do I begin? This game is a logician's wet dream.
Sure, it's an exercise in humility, but I feel I can safely say it's also the most compelling puzzle game I have played to date. There is no chaos whatsoever--only increasingly complex order and efficiency. If ever there were a game that captured the passion of engineering, this is it.

The music is deeply inspired and provides a suitable background to your work. The story has some enrapturing quality as well, a smidge of suspense and intrigue enough to give you that extra nudge forward. This may sound insane, but reading the story between puzzles feels physically relieving, as though the stress on your mind is shifted to different regions, much like those atoms are shuffled so smoothly around the reactors, so orderly, clean and calm.

Wait, did I say 'work'? I mean that in the kindest sense possible. You'll understand once you start to 'play'; these words will become interchangeable.

I could see this game used in schools to outstanding effect.
It's a masterpiece.

I played this game before I did on Steam.

You will be perpetually frustrated while playing this game. You will spend 40 minutes on a single piece of a larger puzzle, and find out that it's not even tangentially close to the solution. Yet, as you're deleting your solution, you'll have gained insight on both what to do and not next time. You will think about the level at night as you sleep or take a break, returning with a better idea of what you need to do.

There's no finishing the game in a single sitting.

Yet, whenever you finish a puzzle, you can't help but feel a rush of endorphins. After two hours of ♥♥♥♥ing around and being agitated at the lack of solution, when the victory music plays, it's almost ♥♥♥♥♥♥ic.

Also, each puzzle is amazingly open ended, which is aided by the fact that there's statistics comparing several variables (ticks, factory counts, symbol count, etc) to other players.

There's actually a pretty trippy story behind it, too. I was pretty demotivated by its complicatedness for a time, but the story had me hooked and pushing through.

8/10 would recommend.

This game is not about chemistry, its about programing, procedures, and analitic thinking
very similar to the flash game "light-bot"

you have to use the provided commands, to move arround "atoms" to get the requested output
very fun. very addictive. totally worth every cent

This is an extremely difficult puzzler, designed for those who might enjoy circuitry puzzles or programming. Everyone else would be wise to stay far away.

When I want some help for this game ,I click the big "H" in the game interface,and one big Periodic table of elements show there.

After settle several levels,I found this is really an interesting game.The process is not like Prelogate, it is more complicate,and also have a custom puzzle maker,though it do not support workshop in steam.

If your up for a good puzzler, this is the way to go. excellent use of logic, and a high replay value to get your solutions as efficient as possible.
