Alchemy by Ben Stanley

A fast and furious alchemist duel awaits! Can you combine and destroy the ancient elements to win this simple and challenging strategy game against a brilliant artificial intelligence? Play against a friend, or challenge three levels of Alchemy AI and discover the secrets of a game that you can learn and play in less than a minute, but it may take you years to earn the twenty five achievements. Or perhaps you are an Alchemy prodigy and can master earth, water, air, fire, destruction, and the balance of all elements in only a day? Compare your mathematical and combinatorial genius in this delightful game with friends and gamers around the globe through Game Center integration.

Created by American attorney and game designer Ben Stanley, author of the popular Tribal Dice (also available in iTunes) and other award winning games, Alchemy takes the concepts from traditional Nim-family games, and adds a thrilling theme of alchemical warfare and a unique, innovative mechanic whereby elements can be both combined (based on their chemical weight or predominate element) or DESTROYED if the element is primarily a volatile one. If one of the two players has no legal moves, they cannot keep up with the Alchemists duel and lose, but perhaps the defeated can rise to challenge the victor again, since each game of pure, luckless strategy takes only moments to complete.
