If you’re someone who enjoys learning, I would say this is a definitely good game for you. It’s very simple and follows the real world well- there’s no combinations that aren’t rooted in fact or culture. It’s also very satisfying to find new combinations. This app gives that “aha!” moment when you understand something new without the pressure to get it right.
The soundtrack is nice but if you play it as long as I ended up doing, you will eventually shut it off. Very easy to do from within the app though, which I appreciate.
Little Alchemy 2 is seriously super cool! It’s a great way to pass the time, and I think that it’s honestly better than the one before it (Little Alchemy). You’re basically combining elements to form more elements and you can use those elements to form even more elements—and it just keeps going! It’s so much fun! It also gives you a small explanation on what the element you discovered is, like for example: “Atmosphere: The layer of gases surrounding our planet that protects us from various invisible space horrors.” Plenty of other explanations are as unique as this, too. Unfortunately, I must say it gets hard after a while. Once you’ve discovered a lot of elements, it’s hard to find new ones. Lately, I’ve been getting “atmosphere” a lot. But, since I really enjoy this app truly, so it isn’t very bothersome. On the contrary, it’s fun to discover new combinations for known items! So, to conclude, I recommend this app to those who are looking for a fun time-killer or a cool game to play on their device.
I reverse engineered a bunch of ‘element alchemy games’ (games where you combine elements into new elements), extracted the recipes and wrote a tool to interact with them. See https://github.com/redfast00/element-alchemy-cheater
This repository contains the recipes for some element alchemy games. It also has a CLI to facilitate looking up recipes and usages of an item.
What is an element alchemy game?
An element alchemy game (later EAG) is a game where you start of with the four natural elements (air, fire, water and earth) and combine them in order to form other elements. For example: earth + fire = lava. Example of an EAG
How do I select what game I want to use?
First, determine what the reverse domain of the app is (Example:
com.sometimeswefly.littlealchemy) and check if it is available by checking if it is in the JSONrecipes directory. If so, run
./cheat.py JSONrecipes/<reverse domain>.json
If there is no recipe file for your game yet, please submit an issue or PR.
How do I interact with the CLI? What are the available commands?
help to see a list of available commands.
I hate typing!
Uh, okay… Tab-completion for names is available, and most commands are aliased to their first letter.
How did you obtain the JSON recipe files?
Read my blog post (TL;DR: I reverse engineered the apps and extracted the recipes from the decompiled sources)
How are recipe files structured?
item_ids are always positive integers,
names are always lowercase strings. A
recipe is a dictionary with two keys:
results. Those keys contain a list of
item_ids. The order of the
item_ids doesn’t matter.
The JSON file has two keys:

names (a dictionary that maps
