The game can be played online and also available on iOS and Android mobile platforms. And yes, it is free !

Combining elements in Little Alchemy is straightforward literally just dragging a dropping the elements onto one another.If the combination is valid the new element will show up otherwise nothing happens. If any given element can not be combined further, it will be highlighted in red when rolling over with the mouse. There is also a search function that makes the navigation easy just press CTRL+F to find any element by name. Right clicking on any element will display its history, while clicking on question mark on the left side will show the online help.
