Unscrambler is a word puzzler where you're tasked to reconstruct a scrambled word. The original word is broken into chemical element symbols which are then provided to you shuffled. Just order these back to the correct word (or any other word) and you'll be given some points.

Sounds simple enough? Well, sometimes the given symbols are jumbled even further and you must combine two or more elements to form new ones with some basic maths!

If you don't use all the provided symbols, you will lose one life for each unused one. And when you run out of lives, as you might have guessed, the game is over. So be precise (and fast for the multiplier) to score big and claim your place on the leaderboards.

Made for Ludum Dare 49 with the theme of Unstable.

I suck at this game and I'm not sure how to use the machine.

You just drag two elements to it and it will run a selected math operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication or division) on their atomic numbers (the number on top) and then spits out the result as an element that has the result as atomic number (if found). 

Yeah, I figured it out after I sent my comment.

what machine

It's on the top right.

Ok thanks
