Windows Phone Game Review: Atomix

Atomix for Windows Phone

Here's a short look at an interesting game for your Windows Phone, Atomix. Atomix is a puzzle game where you are presented with a series of colored dots that are connected to each other. The patterns resemble molecular or atomic structures.

Your job is to eliminate all the dots and to do so you tap on one of the highlight dots that will start a chain reaction that will merge and destroy the adjacent dots. Atomix is a multi-level game (100 of them) and the further you progress, the more challenging the puzzles get. You have a set time to solve the puzzle and your score is based on how fast you eliminate the dots and the number of clicks you use.

Atomix

There are two downsides to Atomix. First, the game lacks any settings to mute the music/sound effects. While you can accomplish this by turning down your Windows Phone main volume, in the process you dial down the phone's ringer. Personally, I prefer muting things within the application just in case I forget to turn up the ringer volume when I'm done playing.

The other issue I found with Atomix is the lack of a Help or How-to section. The game isn't overly complicated but as the game gets more challenging, trying to figure out the proper sequence is really hit and miss without having any formal instructions on how to play Atomix. You also have a series of bonus dots that have special abilities. It would have been nice to have a listing of what abilities these bonus dots have.

All in all, Atomix isn't too shabby of a game for your Windows Phone. Once you figure out the game play it is a nice game to pass the time with but, again, without knowing for sure how to play the game the higher levels can be frustrating. Luckily, there is a free trial version available to let you try things out before buying.

The full version of Atomix will run you $.99 and you can find it here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.

I was kind of hoping that you had to build actual molecules based upon molecular obrital theory. i was like whoa you have to try and put those red (hydrogen) and yellow (oxygen) atoms to make a molecule. then it was like oh the background is such a liar. damn you background damn you!

There is another game based on Atomix (oryginally PC game from 1990), but the remake version is called Atomic Puzzle and you can buy it on iTunes. This Windows Phone game I saw on many online games ;)
