Free Games I like: Doodle God

As the resident weapons and demolitions expert in the bit-tech/CPC office I also have a fondness for blowing up/destroying/killing things in games too.

It came as quite a surprise therefore to find myself enjoying a game that doesn't involve any martial activities. The game in question, is a free to play Flash game called Doodle God.

You begin the game with a few base elements and are given the aim of discovering another 112 more through the process of combining existing elements together.


It's more than just a guessing game though, as the combination of the elements isn't completely random - a basic understanding of evolution, chemistry and how things are made will help you quickly and easily figure out which elements need to be combined.

Unlike a lot of Flash games Doodle God also has a quite a lot of longevity, thanks to the many possible combinations of elements. Apart from the scoring system, the game rewards you with appropriate quotations from significant figures in history whenever you discover a new element.

All in all, Doodle God provides a nice break from the hectic pace of killing that punctuates my usual gaming sessions.

P.S. I lied - you can kill things in Doodle God. Try combining the Hunter with an Animal and you'll see what I mean.

Just to give another opinion.

I didn't like it, was very boring although some of the quotes very very nice to read.

It was amusing until you had the last few to discover.

is this an educational sort of game too? as in, it uses real world elements? clever if it is...
Aterius Gmork 22nd July 2010, 12:06 Quote
Yep, all real. Like dragons, vampires and steam boilers.

Got all 115 of them, I want my 60 minutes back.

DID NOT like this game really got very boring and I thought there would be more to it if there was just another aspect to complete it. Very repetitive but saying that I did complete the game which consumed a good couple of hours of my life.
So to conclude, it is the most addictive worst game I've ever played. Anyone else feel this?

Shame no android version :(

This is just like the Alchemy game my friend has on his Droid. That game has 500+ elements you can create, but this is a nice "PC version" in the mean time till I get my new phone next week.

the alcohol and pirates i get ,rum is alcohol and youd have to be an alcoholic to act like jack sparrow , also this could be why sailors got lost at sea with a drunk for a captain always shouting port port port .
