Windows version doesn't work in Wine and there's no Unity web player for Linux. Too bad, since this game looked interesting.

As Tumanini said, windows version doesn't work, i.e. it won't unpack the zip since windows won't allow a file 'Foo' (no extrnsion) alongside a folder 'Foo' (and the web player hates my laptop so I can't rate)

This is a good concept you got there good sir. I don't thing the song worked well with the game, but hey, i can picture this as an educative game for children at school!

I can rarely see something like this, these days :)

I didn't like it too much. The game is really simple, and is not difficult. On the bright side, it is scientificlu accurate and has a nice tutorial on it, which was really cool 8D

I second (third?) Tumaini and De10ter. Tis a shame, for I have a thing for educational games.

More like a learning app than a game, but still pretty nicely done. Good job.

Seemed like a good idea, but like several other unity titles this ld, the controls are lacking. I should be able to delete atoms placed, and spin the molecule around by click-dragging in empty space. hard to visualize what goes where in later stages when the atoms are all floaty and you have no control. Music not a good fit for this style of game, should be something more ambient maybe? Good concept for a puzzle game, but no difficulty really except for the controls making it harder than it should be.

Gameplay didn't really hook me in at all, but it was funny and informative (although I forgot everything already).

Really cool concept. I like that you put in a tutorial and sandbox mode. Not really much bad to say about this game, it looks nice too. Loved the music also :)

Nice, and should be a great educational game!

Just made me some propylene C3H6 :)
Like some of the others have said I think the controls could be improved a little, but this is otherwise a nice game and it's well stylised too.

As a game I thought it was tedious, but it is a neat educational toy.

This is great! With a little tweaking, it could be a top notch educational game. You could add in a mode where they need to identify molecules.
And especially for a sandbox type mode, it would be cool to add an indication of how many more bonds an atom can form.

Nice idea and execution! Loved the funk in the background, oddly fitting.

Nice game! :)

Cool concept and also very educational.

Without a mouse I wasn't able to zoom. My trackpad's scrollwheel area didn't behave the same as a mouse scrollwheel. Once I got to a molecule that required me to build a ring, I couldn't figure out how to get the ends of a string of molecules to bind to each other to form the ring.
