Game Review: Little Alchemy 2

Updated on March 13, 2018

Is this game for you?

Little Alchemy 2 is not a game where you can expect anything intense. It’s a basic game, but its simplicity does not negate the fun of the game, but perhaps even enhances it. It also isn’t a skill based game. Knowledge will help with the game, but other than that it is largely based on random combinations and luck. It is a relaxing game that can be used to pass the time. It can be played by all ages. Personally, I recommend playing with friends because it’s fun to help each other out and figure things out together.

What is it?

Little Alchemy 2 is the second game of Little Alchemy. Little Alchemy 2 is a game in which you, the user, starts with basic elements and gradually create more and more stuff by combining those elements. This game is similar to Doodle God, but with a more basic format.

How do you play?

The user just starts with the elements it provides and puts them out on the board. Drag and drop them on each other to combine and find correct combinations that lead to discovery of new items. After enough items are discovered, the user may want to use the search bar on the top to find items to combine. The user may always click the bottom, left button to clean up the board. The rightmost button has hints the user may get in exchange for watching ads if the user gets stuck. The second button to the right is the encyclopedia, which shows all the recipes the user has already discovered. The encyclopedia also classifies these items into categories.


The three most important categories

The three most important categories are basic, final, and depleted. Basic items are items that you start with or are given throughout them game when reaching certain points. Crafting basic items is possible, but they may be received also by getting far enough in the game. Final items are items that can’t be used to craft anything, and are simply the final form of an item. Depleted items are items that were previously able to craft, but all the recipes available for that item were already discovered, therefore crafting with depleted items is no longer possible.

Go play!

If this sounds like a game you’d like, go check it out!
