(...) This is crazy addictive and satisfying
Indeed, the Zachtronic's line of programming and problem-solving games are highly enjoyable, satisfying, and oh, so addictive... if you get into them!
For me, my first contact with "Infinifactory
" was a revelation in gaiming!
I skipped "Spacechem" on its initial release and soon forgot about it entirely.
After I got into "Infinifactory", I started to play more of their problem-solving games, but have to admit that I have not finished any of them, yet.
Still, "Infinifactory" and "TIS-100
" (their most purist game) are my favorite modern "puzzle" games!
On my former computer I collected a lot of small videos / gif animations of my solutions... where do I have the old HDD?
Let me ask you something: how do you feel about the "timed" boss levels in the original "Spacechem" for PC?
I personally did not liked them, and found out that the mobile version (e.g. on Android) does not include them. (But they also did cut out the brief story elements...)
(I really should try if I can get any further in each of these Zachtronic's games.)
P.S.: To add something in form of a game screenshot, let me use a scene from the game series I am currently finishing replaying.
P.P.S.: There is no clipping nor 'photoshop' involved in this picture. =)
