Discover unlimited combinations in this addicting game

I believe this resource is an incredible introductory resource tool. While it may not give too much in depth information to students, it definitely gives them an opening to ask questions about why different materials will combine to form others. I really liked the design of each new variable discovered in the game, and I thought the music and sound design kept me engaged as well. I think that some students may have difficulty solving this, and at times the game does fall into trial and error, throwing random resources together to see what happens, rather than thinking critically about what they should solve. I also think the encyclopedia section which catalogues new discoveries should have more information about each item.

Simple game that keeps the focus of students

This isn't my first choice as a teaching tool, my students enjoyed it very much and it kept them occupied. It was easy to get stuck but a few "hints" and "cheats" got my students back on track.

Constantly creating new things

It's easy to get started, all you need to do is simply drag and drop the different elements to expect the results. You can also check the corresponding encyclopedia when a new element appears. This game can help children to get some knowledge quickly. But only for younger children. It is very interesting and I believe that all children will like it.

Great for students to learn on their own.

This website was very useful for students to be able to experiment with things they can't usually play around with. Instead of being told what to do, they can just play around with the buttons and learn along the way. It was a great experience for someone who is looking to learn by trial and error.

Good game!

I really like this game. It is not merely entertainment that it offers a lot of knowledge about science in it.

Create your own unicorn and zombie with Little Alchemy

I think it is a fun and addictive game. You quickly find yourself lost in it while you create a unicorn, zombie, or simply outer space. While I didn't directly teach the game to my students, I did need to circulate and expose some students to a few of the features. Some of the computers in my lab would save previous students' progress and students needed to know how to reset the game. I'm always looking for the next, new game to show my students and this was one they enjoyed - at school and home.

Minimal educational value, engaging and supports logical thinking.

Little Alchemy provides an engaging opportunity for students to discover increasingly complicated programmed combinations and to suggest their own "creative combinations." It encourages completion, logical thinking, and imagination. There are tempting options to get "cheat" solutions.
