Description:
Alchemist is a game with an added twist in its gameplay: Our alchemistic hero can change form into a large eagle and then back into his robed alter-ego. The advantages are clear; you can move much quicker and fly over obstacles thus avoiding some of the more unpleasant characters in the game.

Change back into the wizard and collect items and fire lightening bolts at nasties by using spells and spell energy to help you defeat those who guard the evil warlock. Sounds like a nasty piece of work..

Object:
The untilmate goal is to reach the Warlock and destroy him. This can only be done by picking up various items during your adventure, such as keys and treasure.

Criticism:
Graphics are very good but bulky,and the sound is fair. Gameplay is without major hickups and the colour is well used. The animation at times is chunky due partly to the size of some of the objects and creatures or characters.

Sound & Graphics:

Transforming the Wizard to the eagle has a nice uniform sound which is found throughout the game, such as picking up objects and using your spell energy against enemies. No in-game sound, but i suspect that this would cause a detremental effect to the game-play due to the size of the graphics.

Large sprites and big enemies! Considering this, the animation is still good and very playable with no major drag on performance.
