Atomix review

Zero Magazine Issue 7 (1990) - "Apparently endorsed by Albert Einstein himself (his famous straggly hairy bits appear on the title screen), Atomix is rather like Lego for the nuclear physicist. You're presented with a maze around which atoms are scattered and you have to build the molecule shown at the corner of the screen within a certain time limit by moving them horizontally or vertically.
Things are hampered by the fact that when you move an atom, it continues until it hits an obstacle. This makes fine positioning a bit of a nightmare. It requires the same sort of mind as those little tile games where you were supposed to form the words GOAT, RULE, DIET, and CAB within a square frame by sliding the bits around. It's intriguing at first but a bit repetitive until you get the passwords to skip to the real humdingers from level ten onwards."
