Frustrating, humorous, straight forward, and soothing–these are all the qualities of playing Little Alchemy. It’s a simple game of combining objects to make new objects (à la MineCraft), and so on and so on until you have items like “Cow” and “Ice Cream” from only four elements: water, fire, earth, and air. Sort of like Legos, except without the rectangular constraints. There are 240 possible combinations in total, with the option of using cheats and hints. Yes, I’ve been cheating. The best part? You can save your progress, so you don’t need to start from scratch every time you have a few minutes to kill.
