Critic Reviews

"It’s frequently punishingly difficult, and demands a level of perseverance that some may find off-putting – but the meticulous, crystalline integrity of SpaceChem’s design invites its players to excel, and intrinsic rewards for doing so are tremendous." - Edge

"Then you can move on to the next challenge. Or not. That's a central tension throughout SpaceChem; the drive to proceed into new stages competes with the allure of revisiting past levels to tinker. SpaceChem stokes the latter temptation by presenting an efficiency report at the end of a level. This pernicious document grades your solution by metrics, like the time it took your machine to process the materials and how many instructions you had to place in the waldos' code to do it." - Eurogamer

"This is an incredible game, and it absolutely has a place in the PC’s growing catalogue of glorious indie puzzlers. Alongside the shimmering, yet evasive brilliance of Braid, or the charming wit of World of Goo, we now have a straight-up genius. There’s no other word for it- like all geniuses, it can be demanding and even problematic, but there’s no questioning what Zachtronics has achieved here. This is top-of-the-line entertainment. If you’re a puzzle game fan, buy SpaceChem immediately." - Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Unrealistic Chemistry and Strategy\Puzzle in same bottle. This game maybe nice puzzler for most fans, but setting it use is wron...g in most cases. I mean, chemistry dont work in why its used in game. So dont treat it as education game.
