Gold Award-winning iOS game SpaceChem finally bonds with Android tablets

Zachtronic Industries's SpaceChem was my personal favourite indie game of 2011. It took logic puzzles to a whole new level by inviting you to bond atoms through loops and nodes.

Being an Android sort of guy, my jealously levels went through the roof when the iPad got a touchscreen version of SpaceChem last October.

I can finally breathe out again now, though, for this mind-bending chemistry game is now available for Android devices. You're going to need an Android tablet to play it, mind.

According to the description on SpaceChem's product page on Google Play, you will, in fact, need an Android device that can output at a resolution of 1280x800 to run this game. The developer really isn't kidding, by the way.

I tried downloading the game on the Galaxy S III, and it was far too tiny to play, even on that handset's whopping great 4.8-inch screen.

However, it plays like a dream on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. We'd suggest you grab a copy of the demo from the store first [download], though, just to make sure that it runs okay on your device.

You can purchase the full game right now from the Google Play Store for £3.82 by clicking on the following hyperlink [buy].
