Doodle God

In Doodle God we trust. At least that’s what it says on the loading screen. Creativity has no limits. In fact, if there were no creativity we, the humans, wouldn’t evolve at all. The creative process is the energy which moves us forward and allows us to invent new objects, ideas, functions and, of course, games. Doodle God is a creative game made by some very creative people at Elite Games.
Doodle God is all about being creative. Essentially all you have to do is combine elements to create new ones. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? The game starts with only four basic elements: Fire, Water, Earth and Air. By combining those you are able to discover more which can again be combined with the existing ones to create even more stuff. With a total of 115 elements this game is no walk through the park. As the new elements are unlocked the number of potential options rises exponentially drastically increasing the difficulty of the game.
Elements are sorted into fourteen groups which can be expanded to view their contents. Once you have picked a group all others move to the opposite side of the screen allowing you to choose in which way you wish to combine the elements. One of the aspects of the game I liked the most is when you finally manage to discover something new. At that point the elements collide creating a new one and a small citation is shown. The citations are always connected to the element created. For example, by combining Metal and Steam a Boiler is created with a citation by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “We boil at different degrees”. This is consistent with all new elements and adds motivation do discover new elements and citations alike.
Doodle God is a difficult game to play, testing your patience on every step, but once you get immersed it is hard to stop playing.
