Alchemy for Windows takes a little part of the gameplay from Uno, Dominoes and Tetris to make a new puzzle game that is cleverly addictive.
The goal, to make complete horizontal or vertical lines on the grid, can only be accomplished by putting similiar pieces (in color or shape) next to each other.
In order to keep the game fresh, there are a couple of options besides just laying down pieces. You are able to discard three pieces in a row, but if the cauldron fills up--game over. There are also a couple power-ups, such as wild cards, to help you get the higest score.
Considering the great visual and audio presentation, the game surely has the goods needed to keep it up to par with PopCap's other extremely popular game Bejeweled.
