Review of 'Alchemist'

Rating:3 User: YOR

Alchemist, by the late Ian Weatherburn, is undoubtedly a well-written game and some nice colourful graphics that still look really good today. It's a game I really want to like, but there are just far too many keys for my taste and it ultimately left me confused and constantly pressing the wrong button most of the time. As a result, I suck at this game. It was well received back in the day and it deserved to be, but the older I get the more I like my games to be straightforward, pick up and play and intuitive, and this sadly isn't with so many keys to press.
