    Master of Alchemy was beautiful on the iPad and its jump to the iPhone is no less breathtaking and fascinating to play.

    While the iPad version of Master of Alchemy came as an awesome "physical" puzzle game, on iPhone and iPod Touch it has to deal with some practical limitations (screen size) that make the gameplay less immediate but certainly not less fascinating.

    A creative, if sometimes frustrating, physics game.

    Master of Alchemy is a fine physics-based puzzler set in an entertaining universe, but it's contaminated by a few unnecessary embellishments.
