[prMac.com] New York, New York - JSV Ventures, LLC today is proud to announce the release of Alchemy 1000, the unique puzzle app for iPad and iPhone. After receiving cult like feedback on Android, JSV Ventures, LLC successfully ported the game to the iOS platform, with several design improvements. The app starts off with the four basic elements: earth, air, fire and water. Users mix elements to create new objects: a beer, a star, an ATM, etc. For example, combining earth and water makes a plant. The object of the zany game is to find all 1000. Conquering the game could take months, but humorous combinations make discovering all the more enjoyable.
"We had a small Android bug that flooded that us with angry emails and reviews. We instantly knew that we had to port this funky concept to iOS." explained Jeremy Schrage, principal at New York based JSV Ventures, LLC. "Users just can't put the game down. Session times are off the charts."
The brain teaser has a host of features that helps users make objects like a crocodile, a skeleton, an elephant, or Santa Claus. The most effective feature is a hint system with extended hints displaying element names. Additionally, a hot/cold meter shows how close users are to creating a new element. Elements that can no longer be used can be marked with an asterisk. Cheating by unlocking combinations is available as a last resort. Two game modes are available for user preference. The default mode allows users to tap items in succession for an attempt to create something new. An alternative mode permits users to drag and drop objects on one another. Sound and vibration feedback give a surprise for element creation.
