Description

Atomix is a puzzle game. On each level, you are given a couple of atoms, and your task is to arrange them into a specific molecule.

You see all the atoms available for you to move in a top-down view. Down below on the left side is a small preview of what you must get. That picture represents a molecular structure that you must recreate by moving atoms horizontally and/or vertically. Once you move an atom, it won't stop unless it hits an obstacle, like a wall, or another atom, therefore you must use walls and other atoms creatively.

The game contains 30 levels, and you have a limited time for each level.

Trivia

Boss key

Atomix has a boss key available during gameplay by pressing Ctrl-B. It merely displays the contents of boss.txt, so it could be customized to the particular work environment.

Cancelled version

A ZX Spectrum version was also in development, but was never released.

Companies

Two "company" names that are associated with the original Amiga version are Softtouch and RoSt Grafic. Those are not actual companies however, but monikers of Günter Krämer and Rolf Steffens respectively, who both worked together at TaleSoft.
