Here is a request for a little edutainment game.
It is described on it's homepage as "logic-puzzle game" and started as KAtomic clone. It is Open source and uses the GPL license. It looks pretty portable and runs from portable devices. All it probably needs is a pretty PAM wrapper and some checking wether it uses the registry.
In a space restricted by blocks you have to assemble molecules by moving the detached atoms around. It's quite fun and educational without lecturing so almost a must have for responsable "grownups" who whant to coax kids into chemistry Wink

The homepage with download link is at:

Ill take

a look over the weekend.

EDIT

It doesnt use the registry but saves its files to the Application Data folder.
The one thing I dont like about it is that it hasnt been updated in over 2 years...

old but good

I don't know wether it is rather dead or is just finished. Ok there are always things to add - so maybe we can generate some interest in reviving development with a PAM version. Nevertheless I still think this little edutainment game quite fun and therefore worth the effort. Looking forward to putting this onto every USB-stick I can get my fingers on Wink
