Game Information
Short Introduction: 
The greatest achievement for an alchemist is to create the Elixir of Life. However, there are so many ways to do it. Fortunately, you have found various combinations of metals and symbols that can be used to create this Elixir. Yet you’re not the only one. Other alchemists are following their own paths to create the elixir. It’s a race to see who can combine their elements first and become the greatest alchemist in the world.

Step 2. Starting the game
