ATOM - a game based on the periodic table
SixBeeps (3725)

Hi all!

I've been working on a game called ATOM. The goal of the game is to discover all of the elements of the periodic table in as few moves as possible starting with just hydrogen. You can discover elements through finding them in various places, or you can choose to transmutate a pre-existing atom.

It is highly recommended to play this game in a separate tab, as it will prevent stuff like text wrapping where wrapping would otherwise be unwanted.

The game runs on exactly 500 lines of code (as of the time I'm writing this) which I'm pretty proud of :)

Any feedback would be appreciated!

Question: If this is a game based on science, why do you lose protons if the Law of Conservation of Matter says otherwise? I am in 6th-grade science, so I may be wrong.

@launcherman08 The Law of Conservation of Matter states that mass cannot be created nor destroyed, but simply transferred. That's what's happening here. You're taking the protons of one atom and shooting them into the nucleus of another. Now, as for extra protons that get lost in the process of ATOM's transmutation, well, let's just say they go into space, never to be seen again :)
